Like most of the ladies here I also had this as a present from a boyfriend. I was surprised as he hadn''''t told me this was what he had chosen to give me however I was pleased and thought it was very cute, though I wasn''''t sure how often I would wear it. When I first received it I thought the box and presentation of it was lovely, however I don''''t think it was worth £50. I tried to wear this bracelet as much as I could, but I found the bright gold to look a little silly and in my opinion this is quite a statement piece which I didn''''t love, I felt I looked as if I was trying to make a point of wearing this bracelet. I had probably only worn it about 5 times and already the colour was getting duller and duller. I wasn''''t a fan from the start but I didn''''t really want to wear it at all. I know that this is the charm starter and I think the charms are so cute, but they are quite big and some of them seem quite delicate so I never ended up putting any charms on it at all. I have only ever seen people wear these empty, I''''ve never seen one with charms on. I think the good thing about this bracelet is that the charms are so cute and there is so many to choose from, however I do think that if you were after a charm bracelet this may not be the first one that pops into your head. I do think this king of bracelet would look adorable on a younger girl/teen but even then they''''re worth a fair amount of money without charms on so I don''''t know if that''''d be a great idea either lol.. Either way I would probably suggest going with a different brand name or someone who prides themselves on making this kind of jewellery :)
I am an avid collector, to some degree, of charm bracelets if I think about it. I have a Tiffany's, Thomas Sabo, Links, Tresor and of course this Juicy Couture bracelet. I got my initial bracelet as a gift off an ex boyfriend and was incredibly pleased. I wear a lot of gold jewellery, and the majority of the other bracelets I owned are primarily silver and I am not a massive fan of wearing the two at the same time: just a personal preference. So I had this bracelet that I could wear quite regularly.
The basic chain starter bracelet is sweet in its own right, and if you wished you could leave it at that (if you still want to purchase it that is). My wrists are incredibly narrow, when I wore it, it sort of sat on my forearm near to my elbow. There were multiple times when I was out and my arm would suddenly feel a little lighter and the clasp and slipped through. Now, it's quite an expensive thing to be losing on a regular basis. The heart charm , it starts with, got lost very early on off the bracelet to my horror. Still, at this point, I was quite fond of it. Perhaps the sentimental value that was attatched to it af the time.
Whilst in America a couple of years ago, I bought a charm to add. It was a really pretty gold key that had little crystals etched in too. It was around $38, which if you look at the other charm bracelets on the market, it is around the same price for more premium charms. It attatches to the chain by quite a large clasp. This makes it easy to put on and also take off, but is slightly chunky ans unsightly. However, it wasn't till it was attatched I was fully aware of the HUGE difference in colour between the bracelet and the charm. I hadnt realised, to what an extreme extent, the bracelets colour had completely tarnished. Of course, you're aware that the item is gold platted, but I have tatty gold platted items from high street stores that are still in a far better condition when I paid a fraction of the price for them.
I will add that my sister bought the more silver coloured one. The appearance of this has not declined so rapidly, but she found the choice of charms to be more narrow.
I do not wear it anymore, it has a nice place in my jewellery box. With the holidays rapidly approaching, charm bracelets are ideal presents to get for your loved ones. Do not waste your money on this one. There are more on the market that are better value, and have a more timeless look and appeal to them.
I love juicy couture and have been a big fan for a few years, any extra money i have is usually spent between links of london or juicy couture. In my crazed juicy obsesion i have collected watches , jewlery, tracksuits, perfum, hair acsessories the bags , boots etc.
Juciy couture is an american company and there is a few stockists in the uk and online.
Juicy couture brought out a charm bracelet and charm range around three years ago. The gold plated juicy couture bracelet costs $45 usd around £29.00 in our money. The bracelet was bought from juicy coutures website in america. The bracelet comes in a heart shaped gift box with bright pink velour lining along with a gift bag and certificate. My bracelet is 19 cm long. It is made from brass with the 14k gold plated coating, it has huge links all the way around. The bracelet has a few smaller links at the fastener in case you need to expand the bracelet. It fastens like a toggle bracelet, there is a long pole with a signature juicy crown at each end this part goes through the ring to fasten. The bracelet even comes with a heart charm it is 1 inch in size, the heart has juicy couture across it.
The thing i like most about the bracelet is it looks big on my wrist and very eye catching, but i love the fact you can buy charms for it and juicy couture have loads to choose from all girly and cute. So far i have a globe, handbag, lipstick and dog charms for mine, the charms only cost £9.99 - £14.99 i feel that is very reasonable. You can also buy the bracelet in silver too.
I wear the bracelet a lot and had it around nearly two years now and it has not tarnished or caused any problems. It is very comfy to wear even with the size of it although i have caught it on the door handle a few times.
Very trendy, very juicy, would make a great gift.
I highly recommend the juicy couture charm starter bracelet.
I got this as a pressent from my boyfriend for my birthday and I had wanted one for ages, now i kind of wish he got me something else!
He paid £50 from Harvey nicks, which is the same price as ASOS and Selfridges etc. The bracelet is lovely, it is heavy and has the "J" and the heart attatched to it. When you first get it it is so nice! I didn't want to wear it every day just because it gets quite annoying if your writting it hits of the table, but i decided to just wear it on nights out or dinners or whatever.
I got the bracelet in August so 7 months now and the colour has totally gone, I knew it was only gold plated but expected a bit more from the bracelet to be honest. It has not went green YET but is a sort of horribley goldy bronze colour! Im so glad now i never bought any charms for it as i now don't want to wear it!
I'd seen the Juicy Couture Charms and had thought they were really cute so I decided to start collecting them. The charms are very over-priced but I wanted to treat myself and they are so adorable! So the first step is the Starter Charm bracelet. I bought this online for £35 at treasurebox.co.uk (I think the prrice is fairly reasonable as the bracelet is gold plated) who I'd bought from before so I'd trusted. I'm not sure how much it is in other stores but botiques and Selfridges can have some pathetic prices!!
The Bracelet is a thick, chunky gold chain which is gold-plated with a toggle clasp to shut.The length of the bracelet is about 7 inches and 8 inches including the clasp. In the clasp is the signature J and a gold heart with a banner on it which is engraved with the words Juicy Couture. Also, on the toggle clasp, at the two ends there are two small crowns. Although it is meant to be a charm bracelet, it looks good worn on it's own, which is how I wore it before I got any charms. The charms you put on don't have to be Juicy Couture either, you can buy some other charms which will also fit too.
I recieved my bracelet in a Juicy Couture gift box which was a black box with the Juicy Couture crest in the middle in gold. Also in gold is a border around the box. The box is hard and isn't cardboard, it is a proper presentation box. The in side of the box is pink and a velvety material.
The bracelet quality is very good. I have dropped this on concrete floor and nothing happened at all to the bracelet, not even a stratch.
I can't think of any disadvantages but that the Juicy Couture charms are a bit pricey and rare if you want to decorate the bracelet in the charms. Normally they're about £50 but again it depends where you buy them, botiques can be very over-priced. The charms are normally also gold-plated with some jewels.
I think this bracelet is worth the money as it is good quality and looks great!!
