Michael Dawkins Sterling Faceted Bangle w/ Granulation & Oval Stations
Easy to Wear!
I had been looking for a bangle to wear with other bracelets and this one is perfect for that. I have another Michael Dawkins bracelet I purchased and together they are perfect. I don't think I would wear this one alone, for me it seems better to pair it with something. It's just the right weight, not to heavy or light where you feel like you could change the shape. What I like about wearing it is that if I'm at my computer, I can push it up onto my forearm and get it out of the way and it still looks like it belongs there.
I love this bangle. I have a coordinating Dawkins bangle that I wear a lot and I wanted something to wear with it. This bangle is solid and the stations are few and off set to give it an interesting and organic look. I was eyeing this for several months and when all Dawkins was on easy pay I jumped. So glad I did. I travel quite often and see a lot of sterling. Haven't been able to find anything of this quality for this clearance price.
Love, Love, Love this Bracelet
My first Michael Dawkins piece. I am still waiting for the rings to arrive. I love this bracelet for it's simplicity. I dress casually 98% of the time so this is perfect. However, you can also wear if you are more dressed up. Perfect fit, I like the fact that it's faceted because scratches will no show. I love jewelry to be somewhat understated but still have an impact and this bracelet surely is it. I wish Michael would offer more single bracelets with a gem. Thank you, Michael for a lovely design. I plan on adding more of your pieces to my collection.
Is this sterling silver?
I purchased this item because I like MD jewelery designs. I have been wearing this bracelet for the past month and it has lost its luster and no amount of cleaning or polishing cloth brings back the shine. The bracelet also bends very easily. I have has no name metals jewelery that has more shine.
I ordered the companion bracelet with the lovely stones and later ordered this bracelet just because the other one was not substantial enough to wear alone. When this second bracelet arrived it looked dirty and the granulation areas were so black and tarnished that I sent it right back. Also, the bracelet itself was thinner and, as one other reviewer said, it didn't seem like it would hold up without getting bent. I may not order from Michael Dawkins again because I would be afraid his granulations would look dirty or tarnish badly. I don't see how you would ever clean a piece like that. I did like the first bracelet with the pretty stones, but I wish I had sent it back before 30 days were up because it just looks too delicate to wear alone and to delicate to wear with my other silver bracelets. Too bad. I love the Michael Dawkins shows and have always wanted to try his line.
Very Nice Bracelet
I just received this bracelet and really like it. I wear it with my Pandora bead bracelets and I love the clinky sound against them as a bangle bracelet does. I know sterling is very high priced now, but this is priced a bit high still. I ordered the size small and it is still a bit large for me but I have very skinny wrists so I cannot find anything smaller. I really like the modern design and it does have a good shine. I would have given 5 stars if it was a little better priced.
Grab It While You Can
This is solid and so well made. Some else's review call this an every day piece and I agree. In fact, I wear it several days a week. I have a small wrist but medium sized hands and like an 8' round slip on Bangle. I got the Medium and it's perfect. Just barely fits over my hand which is perfect. Like I said, I pretty much throw it on with everything but dressy clothes.
I bought a pair of these and so far they have not left my wrist. Yes these are not particularly pretty, But take it from me who owns at least fifteen 22k bangles these are great. They have the quality of a timex....can take a lickin and keep on ticking! Great everyday bangles. They are a tad on the expensive side but metals are expensive these days if you haven't noticed!
I am not a lover of "designer" jewelery, but these are keepers. I am wait listed for the one with the added stones, but be wary of mother of pearl....very pretty....but that stone is not a timex....so to speak....be sure u have a plan to replace that stone/shell at some point in time....but beautiful.
Judging from the price of metals I believe Michael tried two make these affordable for the average middle class person like me. Thanks Michael Dawkins.
No plans too return them, but if they fall a part they will be returned, but so far so good. Really nice every day bangles.....And they fit perfectly!
My Size Fit
I ordered the small because my hands and wrist are petite and the small fit for me. When I first got the bracelet, the stones looked like they were dented in at one of the ends and I thought it was a defect, but it is not a defect. That is the way it was made - if you look at the bracelet on the website you will see it so it's normal. I will be keeping this.
large bracelet too small
I love this bracelet unfortunately the large that was sent to me does not fit. I did also get the coordinating bracelet with the topaz stone and it does fit. This one fits inside of the other one, and won't go over my hand. I'm not sure if they sent me the wrong size or if it is a manufacturing issue. Too bad, will have to return it. Would have been 5 stars if it had fit.
The bracelet is gorgeous. Not sure if I will try again. The cost of returns is ridiculous. I feel we shouldn't have to pay for returns for issues such as this.
This bracelet is very attractive and even though I feel it was a little "over-priced" I do love it and the partner bracelet to go with it!
Love this bangle !!!!! I need a large size so I was especially thrilled when I saw this in a large. Would love to see some variations of this product so that I could wear a bunch together.
I've seen designer bracelets in fine department stores similar to this and they were triple the price and the quality was terrible. They would bend after one wearing.
Thanks Michael Dawkins.
