Michael Dawkins Sterling Starry Night Statement Hinged Cuff
This cuff is a sleeper. I somehow missed this when it first aired, but I have it now. This is gorgeous! I have been searching for the right statement bracelet! I love to stack bracelets; but I wanted a silver cuff that makes a statement and can stand alone; especially when wearing my black cashmere sweater in the fall and winter . This is the one!
For my first purchase of Michael Dawkins jewelry I bought this cuff with the matching ring and the starry nights black spinel cuff. Oh my gosh, they are beautiful! Definitely striking but understated elegance. I will certainly be purchasing more of Michael's jewelry soon!
Worth the Price - STUNNING!
I just received my bracelet yesterday, and I do not understand the negative reviews I read on this item (although most reviews were positive). 1) the images on TV and pictures on the website accurately show the antiquing around the silver granules and high polish on the outer surface of the granules - no antiquing rubbed off on the wrist/arm; the balance between antiquing and high polish is perfect; 2) the small size perfectly fits my 6" wrist - not too loose, not too tight; 3) the hinge is discrete, not in-your-face obvious; it is only as visible as it needs to be to function properly. The feel & weight reflect high quality. I'm glad I did not read the negative reviews BEFORE I ordered the bracelet, because it is stunning, well-made and well worth the price.
Normally in bracelets I order an average but I've found in Michael's bracelets I can wear a small and that was the case with this one, it fits perfect and will stay in place without turning.I normally also wear multiple bracelets at one time but this is so nice I might just wear it on it's own. I love everything about it even the brighter silver bar at the kick stand. I'm happy with this piece ,
With this bracelet I became a big believer in the Starry Night line. It is absolutely elegant. I wasn't sure I would like it as it doesn't have a surface shine but wow this doesn't need it. Now I want the necklace and ring. Love love it. How about a watch?
I Love this Starry Night Braclet !!!! it is so Pretty...I am so glad that i got that for myself. I ordered size small for my 5.3/4" wrist and It is not big just the right cuff for me. Thank you Michael!
Stunning - Can't Take It Off
This is a little expensive for me right now, so I told myself I would get it and keep it only if I loved it so much I couldn't take it off. So much for my budget. This cuff is absolutely stunning -- and it's not dark because of the sparkling granules. I have a 7" wrist, and it fits perfectly(I got the average), doesn't roll. I do agree with others it's not for stacking and looks best worn by itself. And it goes so well with the rings I've previously purchased from Mr. Dawkins.
I really like this cuff, but I'm a stacker. Can not do it with this piece though. It has that tin/hollow cheap sound when stacked with other metal or pearls. I would give it a higher rating, but it is a wear alone piece and like watches and bracelets together.
I ordered this cuff in size average and it fits a bit loose (6 3/4" wrist) but nicely. I ordered the matching ring and they go very well together. A bit costly (reason for 4 stars). It has a nice weight to it.
Sadly Disappointing, No sparkle
Have purchased very many MD pieces, sadly sending this back. I bought the matching ring which had a lot of sparkle, this sadly has no sparkle---too much oxidation , too much black. The hinge on the cuff gives a disjointed look to this cuff---you can see the break of the hinge which disrupts the pattern. I have a 6 1/4 inch wrist, the small size rolls around my wrist, fit was not what I would like. The part of this entire shopping experience which always leaves me unsettled: you have to pay to have it shipped and also pay to ship it back----makes me want to buy less . Message to Michael: please get a shop in Vegas! I travel there a lot, Judith has a shop in Caesar's Forum---you would look fantastic there too!
While it fits a little larger than most of the cuffs I get from QVC (I have a small wrist), it sits right at the start of my wrist and is very comfortable. Occasionally it rolls, as others have indicated, but mostly it stays put. I have worn it non-stop since I got it. I really love the starry night design. Gorgeous!
I can't say enough about this cuff....it is absolutely beautiful and goes nicely with the smaller version. I love that it is indeed a little darker because it makes the little round beads stand out!!!! I love that it is substantial and has some weight to it...if I buy silver then I want it to be weighty!!!! Thanks Michael great job!!!!!
