Rebecca Minkoff is a fashion designer with her own global brand where she sells apparel, jewelry, handbags and even footwear for women just to name a few things. The CEO, co founder, and brother to Rebecca, is Uri Minkoff who has his own line of men’s accessories. I had never heard about Rebecca Minkoff until my father gave me one of my Christmas gifts which was Rebecca Minkoff’s Guitar Pick Hinged Cuff bracelet in gold.
My father and I both love music. We both get really passionate about new music and classic tunes and introducing people to new music. So when my father saw a bracelet with a guitar pick that said Love on it, he purchased it for me. I can go on and on about spending the majority of my childhood in the CD room listening to my dad’s CD collection and any albums that had interesting artwork or an interesting band name, but I want to dedicate this blog to reviewing this product.
First off, this isn’t something that I asked my father to get me for Christmas. He told me that he was shopping for my mom, when he saw this bracelet and thought of me (my heart is melting right now) and he himself had never heard of Rebecca Minkoff. He found the bracelet inside a department store, but it can also be found on her website at https://www.rebeccaminkoff.com
I LOVE the bracelet. My initial reaction when I saw it was to put it on! I removed the tag and clipped on the bracelet on my left wrist. I grew curious about this new brand that I went straight to her website to look at more things. If you sign up with your email, you can get 15% off your first purchase!
As my day had progressed on Christmas, I was super happy to show off my bracelet when I noticed a problem…
The $58 bracelet’s clip was not getting the grip it needed to stay on very long.
If I could give this bracelet five stars, I would have. But for a $58 bracelet, you would think that the clip used to secure it around your wrist was a better quality. I would put on my jacket, it would snap off. I would raise my hand, it would snap off. I would shake someone’s hand, it would snap off. Unbelievable and definitely unacceptable.
When I told my father, he had told me that someone had left a review of this same bracelet with the exact same complaint. I am going to review it on Rebecca Minkoff’s website and say the truth. The truth meaning that the bracelet is beautiful, but really needs a better way to secure itself around your wrist. The part of the bracelet that I’m referring to is the one circled below.
My father was able to take care of this issue by securing the clip together, and tapping it gently with a hammer to flatten the little ball point so that the clip wouldn’t break away from it so easily. Although the solution was a simple one, customers should not have to do this at all. Especially for $58 worth.
The items in her site are overpriced, but she does have an under $100 section and an under $50 section. Jewelry and accessories are the most affordable options on there. Never be afraid to give an honest opinion or experience about something new. I love that Rebecca Minkoff is a young fashion designer who made her dream happen, so the least I can do is be honest with her about my first impression of one of her products so that her company knows what they need to pay more attention to.
I love my bracelet, just not the hassle. Always remain grateful and do not be afraid to give new things a try!
