18K Gold Plate Flower Birthstone Family Bracelet (2-5 Stones and Names)
Disappointed in shipping and clasp
I asked my husband to buy this for me for my last Birthday in September 2011. I've been wanting a piece of Mother's jewelry for a while and was really excited about finally getting one, since I had my last baby in July. But I'm disappointed in how everything turned out. First my husband ordered this well ahead of time to get it by my Birthday, but they failed to ship it on time and it didn't finally arrive until several weeks later. This pretty much ruined my Birthday, since it's all he had bought for me.
The bracelet itself is very pretty except for where the clasp is, which I think the way it connects to the bracelet is poorly designed and ugly. Since it is thicker on one of the flowers and on the clasp area. Then after wearing it I discovered that the clasp doesn't work very well. It has a safety on it which doesn't work either, it is always coming unconnected. So anytime I accidentally bump the release button (which isn't hard to do, since it sticks up) my bracelet falls off. I've tried wearing it around 6 times and every time it has fallen off. I've been lucky to notice and not lose it.
I have no idea how to get this fixed unless I take it in to a local jeweler and have them put a different clasp on it. But the way it's designed, one of the flowers is part of the clasp so it would probably cost a lot to do that. I'm really sad, since it is a nice bracelet, which my husband spent a fair amount on. And my girls love when I wear it and they see their names and birthstones. I didn't know anything about the 100 day return policy, which has passed. Also we don't have a Zales nearby and don't want to have to pay for shipping and spend even more money.

My mother adored it!
I bought this bracelet for my mother for a Christmas present, as a mother's / grandmother's bracelet, and she absolutely adored it. The names came out so clearly and the overall look of the bracelet is very nice.
