Rhodium-Plated Sterling Silver Green Jade Lucky Elephant Bracelet

Rhodium-Plated Sterling Silver Green Jade Lucky Elephant Bracelet

List Price:$179.00
Price:$65.51


This is a very pretty looking bracelet; unfortunately the clasp is poorly made and within a couple of hours it fell off when I put on my jacket because the clasp opened.  Luckily I was home at the time and was able to catch it.  Had I been out it would have been lost.

The other thing that bothers me about this bracelet is that the Jade elephants are a lot thinner than they look in the vendors  picture and you can actually see though the jade.  While this give the bracelet a unique appearance, it makes for a very, very delicate piece of costume jewelry.

Inexpensive in appearance and quality = too high a monetary cost.

I would have adored this watch had the date worked correctly. No matter how many times and how I go about setting this to the correct date, it just doesn't keep up.  It is always showing a day later than it is.

 This watch is everything I love in  about men's watches -it has large easy to read numbers and hands.  I don't need to put on my reading glasses to simply glance at it for the time.  The date is another story, for that I do need my glasses.

So far I have been unable to scratch the face of this watch or the back of it. 

This is a classy and classic watch fit for both men AND women at a price point that won't drain your wallet too much.

This watch looks like it has has a simple elegant leather band doesn't it? Well make sure you click on the video in the product description -surprise!!! It's not so simple. It was impossible for me to figure out how to put this on even after  watching the video and using the instructions that came with the watch. I don't know if I received a totally different watch than the directions and video talk about, but I could not find release buttons and having pain in my hands does not help with trying to get this watch band on.

I usually adore men's watches since they are so much easier to read than women's and look funky on a woman.This LP watch just looked gorgeous and most of it IS easy to read...at least telling the time is easy.  The rest of it, well if you have any vision issues you may want to have a magnifying glass handy!

Pass this watch by if you have any arthritis or pain in you hands and if you have some vision issues! Oh and maybe you should watch the video they use to teach you how to use this before you make up your mind.  www.worldofwatches.com/watch-education
