I have been eyeing this bracelet for 2 years. Finally purchased it on Saturday at Dillard's. My mother loved it so much as well that she purchased one as well. Hers had a defect. So I spent all afternoon on Sunday, looking for another bracelet to exchange it for. I went to 3 James Averys and 2 Dillards. What I found was astonishing. The new version of this bracelet is lighter than the one made 1 or 2 years ago. I lucked out and got the heavier version. Unfortunately, James Avery is raising the prices of their products and/or dropping the quantity of silver in their products. Although, it is all very beautiful and I will continue to buy from James Avery, I was disappointed that this bracelet is now lighter than before. When I made a comment at the 2 James Avery's, they just brushed it aside and said it's the same thing. What led me to buy my bracelets was the beautiful sound they make when they roll up or down your wrist. Unfortunately, the new lighter bracelet sound different. I love my bracelet, but because the hassle I had to go through for my mothers bracelet, it lost a star. It's beautiful, shiny, with a beautiful melody, but it depends when it was made.
A beautiful bracelet
My husband gave me this bracelet for my birthday and I love it. It is really a work of art. It is substantial but not too heavy. Beautifully shaped and makes a really pretty sound. Very comfortable to wear. I normally wear a size 7 1/4 bracelet and the small fits perfect. It will go with everything and it will be my favorite bracelet. I would totally recommend it.
I love wearing the bangles with the matching ring. It's just stunning! Love the chime produced by the bangles. Just a work of art!
My wife really likes this bracelet
I bought this for my wife last Christmas and it quickly became her favorite. The two links together are slightly musical - and I seem to hear them everywhere - church, the concert hall, the theatre, kids soccer games. So, my guess is, they must be quite versatile as a jewelry selection.
I bought this with some Christmas money I received. I love it!! It is substantial and feels very comfortable while wearing. It matches all my other silver James Avery pieces. I layer it on with my other bracelets!!
I just bought this bracelet, and it is so beautiful. Once I tried it on, I knew I didn't have to look any further in the JA store! The forged hammer look really shines. It's a stunning piece to add to my collection.
This is a beautiful set of two interlocked bangles. The quality is amazing, as expected from JA, with substantial feeling silver and gorgeous hand hammering detail. I think JA is a much better value than many more expensive, designer brands, many of which are not made in the US. I have thin wrists but large knuckles, and the medium size works well for me. I would definitely recommend this bracelet - it styles well with both traditional and modern wardrobes.
Best choice ever
I received the st Theresa 3 bangle bracelet for a birthday present and it just didn't work with my other JA bangles so I went online and saw the forged two bangle..I went to the JA store and they kindly exchanged it.. Best choice I ever made..it works by itself or with my other bracelets...I am sooooo happy..like another reviewer said it is music to my ears..thank you so much..
Best Birthday Gift Ever
I received the Forged Link Bangle Bracelet yesterday from my husband for my birthday. The sculptured bracelet is solid, lovely, and a real piece of art. I love the way it sits and feels on my wrist.
Just purchased this bracelet for myself after seeing in the new catalog. The sound it makes on my arm is music to my ears. The way it looks is more beautiful. I love it! Would be gorgeous with one silver and one gold...
Excellent Avery Item!!
I was given a James Avery gift card for Christmas. Normally I am drawn to "sets"...necklaces with earrings that match. I considered that at first, but then when I went down my item numbered "wish list" this bracelet appeared and changed my mind.
It is similar to the Martillados bracelet, only with 2 links. It is THE PERFECT MATCH to the VALLE HOOP earrings!! This bracelet is bold and weighty and I love that it's hammered, so scratches are minimal. It's a great every day piece/signature piece of James Avery. This bracelet is suitable across the ages. I wish James Avery made one with a silver bangle and a gold bangle. That would be beautiful as well!
I love this piece!
