    Excellent quality!

    I ordered the black with silver. I absolutely love it. Already getting compliments. Does run small. Order at least 1.5” longer than you measure your wrist at.

    This is such a special bracelet. It is the perfect way to honor a lost best friend and brother. It is truly a wonderful inspiration for hope and faith ~ especially in the midst of life’s challenges and heart aches. Thank you!

    Add 1-1/2 inch to your wrist size

    I purchased this bracelet based on my wrist size, it was too small! I exchanged it for the next size up.



    Having worked with leather since my teenage years, I should have taken some considerations before ordering the first time.



    The linear measurement of the bracelet is accurate; this includes the buckle. However, when the bracelet is connected, the inner size of the bracelet is way off.



    The leather is a generous 1/8” thick. When you take into consideration the thickness of the folded ends (loops) it is 1/4” thick, both sides. The pull of the buckle is another 1/4” on both sides, making the inner measurement 1” smaller than the linear measurement. My suggestion is to add at least 1-1/2” to your wrist measurement for a comfortable fit.



    I love the fit and feel of the bracelet. It is leather, so it does get scuffed and scratched, as it should.

    A Man's Bracelet!

    Bought this bracelet for my Marine husband for his birthday and he loves it. Concerning sizing, because its leather, its better to go in and try it on. Very masculine and well made.

    Super Small Sized

    Ordered this bracelet for our 1 year anniversary and purchased the XL size thinking I’d be safe getting this size. My partner is 6’4 and it is super tight on his wrist so he brought it back for a exchange. So disappointed with that words can’t express it.

    Disappointing

    The bracelet sizing is way too small. My wrist is 6.5” & the small was too tight due to the way the thick leather is folded under. I had to go with a medium & it’s way too big (I can easily fit two fingers underneath). Since there’s a large gap the bracelet keeps twisting to the side. This bracelet was not well thought out.

    Perfect Gift for My Guy

    Got this for my husband for Christmas. I put it on him and he doesn’t take it off. We are boaters so it’s exposed to much and it looks great. Masculine but nice. Excellent quality.

    Too Bad

    I fell in love with this bracelet the first time I saw it in the brochure. I read the reviews and purchased one anyway. I immediately had to take it back because the sizes run abnormally small. Like super small. Like baby arm small. I got one that would actually fit, and then spent the next 30 minutes trying to lock the screw into place. Less than a week later, it already looks bad, with creases in the leather (?) and a worn look that is not appealing. Final thought; for 102.00, but something else

    - Hi Pam, we're sorry to hear you're not completely satisfied with this bracelet! Leather will naturally wear over time, but please see our returns and exchanges policy and take the bracelet to your local James Avery store or call our Customer Service at 800-283-1770 to see what we might be able to do! - James Avery Team

    Great quality, very masculine

    Purchased this for my husband as a Christmas gift b/c of the meaning behind it. It’s very sturdy, very nice. I do agree it is a little to difficult to put on, as far as the screw, but if you have someone to help, it’s fine.

    I was disappointed that James Avery no longer includes the paper inserts that explain the meaning of the piece. Imo that was something that set James Avery that much more apart from any other jewelers.

    Nice looking bracelet but attaching is too great a challenge

    I would have purchased this lovely bracelet if the clasp were easier to attach but I found it too much a challenge for my patience.

    Runs small

    Beware, this bracelet is not true to size description. Bought this in XL for a gift. Bracelet was not 9 1/2 inches as advertised. Took it back to the store to exchange thinking it was mislabeled, but all other XL bracelets in the store were the same size. XL measurement is actually 8 1/2 inches.
