Although I did find mine at the park.. I see how someone lost it, it comes undone easily.
Came unhooked and lost it.
This was a gift and so special to me too. I had also been given 3 charms for a special occasions. Somehow, someway . . . it disappeared off my wrist. It would often come unhooked but I always managed to notice before losing it. So sad not to have this special gift. People always noticed it and complimented me on it. I thought to replace it, but . . . a bit out of my budget now. Makes me sad!
Beautiful, but won't stay on
I would've given this bracelet no stars if that had been possible. I bought this bracelet several years ago. It's beautiful and I loved it.....until it was lost repeatedly due to the faulty clasp. Luckily, I've always found it or someone else has found it and returned it to me. I've taken it to my local James Avery store several times and they adjust it.....which has never helped. After reading all the other reviews that sound similar to mine, I'm going back to the store to plead my case about this bracelet with it's faulty clasp. The company should consider redesigning this item and offer to "fix" the problem on all those bracelets out there.
Loved & Lost
This was a very special gift from my, now deceased, husband many years ago. Of all of my James Avery pieces, this was my favorite. I was so very disappointed to lose it due to the clasp
design. Often think I will purchase another, but don't because of the faulty clasp design...
My son and daughter-in-law have been purchasing a new piece each year for my birthday...the Open Sorrento. I received the hook-on bracelet last year. I lost it and have been heart-broken. As I started to look for it to quietly purchase one to replace, it note there are multiple reviews of this very bracelet. Often, they have been lost due to the clasp. I recommend some kind of encouragement from you folks to continue with the idea of replacement. I notice it was $99. I feel this is expensive enough that all of us should not have to be sad with our loss. Perhaps a voucher to at least cover part of the cost?
I bought this as a present to myself during a rough patch in my life to remind me that I am "Something Special", to "Stay Strong", I'm "Super Sexy" and my nickname is SuSu. Silly I know but I wear it everyday. The only problem is that it has unhooked twice and lucky for me I noticed it before it came off my wrist. I'm ordering the earrings next.
My favorite bracelet!
I have had this bracelet for over a year now, I absolutely love it! I wear it nearly everyday. I was careful at first, as multiple reviews said that it came unhooked easily. I haven't had a problem yet, so they must have changed the design. My job is a very fast paced, very active job, and I wear it there all the time. It's lightweight, comfortable, and easy to wear, and I've found that it goes with pretty much everything.
I absolutely fell in love with the bracelet. I was so sad when I finally lost it forever. Many times I would look down and realize it had come unhooked and fallen off my wrist. However I kept wearing it because it was so beautiful. But unfortunately it mist have come off somewhere in a public place because it is gone. I won't purchase another because I'm afraid it would only happen again. I didn't even have it for a year
This was my favorite piece and sadly I lost it too. Wore this almost everyday and one day it just disappeared from my wrist. I'm afraid to spend this kind of money again if I'm going to lose it due to the bad clasp design.
It's beautiful and it appears as if the issue of it coming off has been resolved since it's really difficult for me to unhook it. I love it and have worn it every day since I received it and have had no issues with it.
Beautiful Bracelet/clasp unsecure
I received this beautiful bracelet for Christmas however within 5 minutes the bracelet had come undone. I secured once again, and once again the bracelet came off. I took the bracelet to a local jewler as I was afraid i would eventually loose it for good. Well it happened as 3 days later i lost bracelet. I am just sick, and it is a beautiful bracelet, but poorly made to fasten.
Beautiful but lost :(
As many others have said the clasp on this is so easy to come undone! My hubby bought this for me and I am broken hearted that it's now lost :( I would replace it but I'm afraid the same thing would happen
Love this bracelet but....
Sadly my Sorrento Hook-On Bracelet came undone multiple times and now it's gone. I am so disappointed in losing this beautiful bracelet and would love to get another one if the clasp is fixed properly. I bought this for my daughter many years ago and she's had no problems...so is it a new hook-on or just me?
My Favorite Bracelet Ever
I bought the Sorrento Hook-On Bracelet and loved it; I wore it most everyday and got a lot of complements on it, at which time I told whoever that it was a James Avery piece and where to get one if they so desired. The only problem I had was when I washed my hands and dried them, it would come unhooked. It fell off several times at work and fortunately I or a customer caught it. But yesterday, somewhere between a late lunch and time to take my jewelry off, I lost it for good...Heart Broken!!! I would order another one if the latch was changed!
Beautiful Mature Piece
I call this piece "mature" because it made me think of my mother when I saw it. I purchased this for her as a Christmas gift in 2012. It is much more delicate in person than the photo displays in my opinion, but is still beautiful and timeless. Almost has an antique feel to it. Comes in different sizes which is great and my Mom loved it.
I purchased the sorrento bracelet about six months ago. It is such a classy, beautiful piece of jewelry! It is one of my favorite JA pieces. I highly recommend it to others.
Beautiful But Short Lived
The bracelet was beautiful -- lovely design and substantial weight. I wanted a wear-all-the-time wrist piece and it seemed to fit the bill. As others have noted though, I eventually lost it. The bracelet simply became unhooked and fell off my wrist without me knowing. Disappointed.
Beautiful design, but...
Just like another customer, mine kept getting unhooked! I'm a very careful person and even then I lost mine :,( broke my heart.
I love the Sorento design, but unfortunately will not be buying another one, it's not cheap!
Sorento bracelet disappoints
I'm a lifetime James Avery customer and fan. I have NEVER had a problem with an Avery piece. However, I've been ogling the sorento bracelet for some years, and finally received it for Christmas this year. It is lovely. So what's the problem?
I've lost it twice in two months. The hook gives at oddball times. I've tried the large, and thought it was my own fault...mis-sized, shouldn't wear with loopy sweaters, etc. SO I bought another for myself in the smaller size. It too comes unhooked and falls off...last night while I was sitting on the couch, wearing a t-shirt that didn't touch at all. Just a matter of time, if I wear this again, before I'm without my husband's gift again. I'm very disappointed.
My husband gave me this bracelet as a Christmas present, and it is beautiful! I love and wear it daily. Goes with anything - dress it up or down.
One of my all-time favorite pieces!
I purchased this 14kt bracelet several years ago and have enjoyed wearing it everyday. I love the swirls and scrolls! It has become my signature piece.
Love this bracelet!
My father gave me this bracelet several years ago as a Christmas present. It is so beautiful in person! The design is so feminine, and it looks so elegant on the wrist. You'll never want to take it off! Love it!
