I own several of these bangles as I like to have my bracelets designed and ready to pop on my wrist. They layer well with the glam style or other bracelets. Easy to take beads on and off. I do suggest that you have stopper beads on the ends of your design.

The bracelet is perfect! However it is for a large-boned person and is too small. Will you make these bangles for a larger person? She loves it, but unfortunately cannot wear it.

I have had my bracelet about a year now and I really love it. The only problem is the pin ball has come off several times and the last time I lost it and some of my charms. Brighton is mailing me another ball today for those who wanted info on how to get a replacement.

I love the flexibility this bracelet gives me in changing out charms and beads for a new look. A springload bangle is much easier to put on in the morning, so I wear my bangles much more than I do bracelets with a clasp. I've had my bracelets for a while - with one being almost two years old. I haven't had a problem with losing the ball connector - I make sure to tighten it frequently just to make sure it is safe!

I love the bracelet and get lots of compliments on it however the magnetic ball that screws on the end comes undone very easily. I just had it come unscrewed as I was taking my coat off and all the beads fell off of it. I was able to recover most of the beads but was unable to find the magnetic ball. I would like to know if the magnetic ball can be replaced?
Loved it but disappointed

Design on wrong half
By Dani Lerberg from Prescott , AZ
On November 11, 2013:
Love the bangle idea. Easy to put on. However beads only on design half. Does not make sense to cover up design. Beads should slide on to plain side or both sides could have design like the Christmas bracelet. I'm planning selling this bracelet on eBay and replacing.
Loved it but beware.

I received this bangle as a gift from my 4 year old grandson and loved it. However I was upset when the side ball bead came off without me knowing it and now the bracelet is worthless. I sent an email to this website to see if I could get a replacement and I am still waiting a response. Very disappointed in Brighton and their customer service.
Bangle is worthless

I loved my bangle when I purchased it, but I had the same problem as the other reviewers. The ball came off and I lost 5 charms. Since Brighton is aware of this problem, why aren't they doing anything?

I love bangles and was very excited when these came out, however, I have had 6 of them now and the ball has either broken off or the magnet has fallen off of each one. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! Not only does the ball break off, if it's worn alone, it opens and doesn't look like a bangle. It also does not hold the larger beads. The stores have them displayed with the huge beads, what a joke, they do not work because they are too heavy! COMPLAINT/OBSERVATION/SUGGESTION: Why on earth would Brighton want to design this bangle so the lovely scroll engraving ends up being covered by the charms as opposed to positioning it on the opposite side. The engraving is lovely, only to cover it with charms, makes no sense. Not only have I returned these to the store, I now have 2 that I can't wear. I called the company and got nowhere! Another huge disappointment. I have alot of Brighton and it seems the quality isn't what it used to be.
Love it, but....

I purchased this bangle and beads for myself, love it and have received many compliments and also have purchased 2/3 more to give as gifts, BUT, I have nearly lost the beads twice because the ball became loose and fell off! Very disappointed, I agree that we should be able to purchase a new ball, I plan to take it back to the store.

I received this bangle for Christmas and i LOVE it.. I am a huge fan of bangles tho.. my only draw back is, when it goes to far down on my arm, it comes open. It does NOT fall off, but i am in fear of that.. over all, i'm very pleased, tho..
Bracelet for charms
By Nora Wright from Houston, TX

I received this bracelet for Christmas from my daughter. I loved it until the magnetic piece either broke or fell off! Luckily for me none of my charms were lost. I noticed on many of the reviews on this particular bracelet are nearly all the same. The magnetic piece is not very well designed. You'd think by now with all the negative review pertaining to the magnetic ball, Brighton would sell the extra ball.
I love it!

I purchased this bracelet in the summer and wear it at least twice a week. I change the charms frequently and have never had a problem with scratching or the stop loosening. It is a wardrobe staple for me and I absolutely love it.

My BFF from high school presented this to me for my 50th birthday. I normally do not do silver- gold all the way. However, this was exquisite. She had put together one using the Charming Bangle, a charm, and two spacers with my birthstone. AMAZINGLY beautiful, and thoughtful. It's easy to get on, and despite waving my hand vigorously it has never come off. I have taken the screw out and never had an issue with that either. Many friends who know my affinity for gold have noticed this bangle and my charm with spacers. The collective comments come down to the fact it looks great and it must be wonderful for me to be seen wearing silver! :) ONLY COMPLAINT/OBSERVATION/SUGGESTION: Why on earth would Brighton want to design this bangle so the lovely scroll engraving ends up being covered by the charms as opposed to positioning it on the opposite side? Doing so would NOT detract from any charms. Must've been a male designer.
Very Pretty! Love it!!

I too am enjoying this bracelet. I bought it myself on vacation because the kids kept bugging me to get a bracelet so they could buy beads for Birthday and Holiday gifts! I also did not like the chain bracelets as I had seen many on others and saw that they "drooped". This bangle fits very well and does not rotate around the wrist. I have not lost the ball screw despite adding and rearranging beads. I do however have "anchor beads" on both ends (the sales associate pointed them out and explained they kept the beads together since I started with only 4 beads) so if the screw does come off, the anchor beads will hopefully keep the beads from falling off! I also wish the beautiful scroll work was on the bottom of the bracelet and not hidden on top under my beads! My ONLY issue with this bangle is...I cannot add more beads now that the top is full. I guess when I bought it, it looked like I could add to both sides so I did not check with the associate. It actually may have made the bracelet too heavy/bulky? So I may have to start another bracelet or just take turns with my beads...BUT I hesitate to unscrew the ball too many times after reading the reviews! :) I also get many compliments on this bracelet!!

I got this for a Christmas present and it is beautiful. I went to the store and added charms for my own special touch, however, the magnetic ball has fallen off on several occasions. I would really love the opportunity to replace the ball since I presently can't wear it.

I love the design and the oval shape! I also love the idea of having charms on a bangle but the magnetic screw is always coming off! Luckily, I have always been able to find my charms! Is it possible to buy an extra magnetic ball without purchasing a new bracelet? Now that would be GREAT!
By Kayla from Cresson, PA

I LOVED my bracelet, but like I have seen on other reviews, the magnetic clasp fell off and now I can't wear it. I frequently tightened it (every time I put it on, at least) because I feared it coming off and losing all my beads. Thankfully, my beads weren't lost but I am upset I now have to dish out money to buy a new bracelet to be able to enjoy my charms and beads. This was poorly designed. If you are going to make something that potentially loses the piece keeping it all intact, you should at least sale the piece that can go missing so someone doesn't need to purchase an entire bracelet for replacement.
Pretty--but not well designed

I have to begin by saying I really like this bracelet. It's exactly what I wanted. Before I bought it, I asked the sales clerk if she had seen many returns because of the screw coming out. She said no, so I felt good about buying it. 1 month after I bought it, the screw came out! I couldn't it..I'd asked about that and then it happened to me. They were very good about replacing this missing screw, but now, I hardly wear it for fear of it coming unscrewed again.
Happy Birthday - Disappointment

I LOVED my bangle bracelet, until the screw broke off and now I can't wear the gift my family gave me (after only 2 months). I expected Brighton to be better quality than that. I nearly cried when it broke in church...Was VERY happy I found the charms that had fallen off of it.

I really loved my bracelet and wore it a lot. I wish the scroll work that is so pretty wasn't covered up by charms too. I was wearing mine and the screw must have been loose because it came off and lost some of my favorite beads. I looked everywhere and they must have dropped is trash can I was drying my hands over. I was very tempted to go digging through trash but since in a public place was concerned with what I would find. Would like to buy new screw if possible.
So dissapointed when the screw broke off

Love the charm bracelet! I have had numerous compliments on my bracelet. I was soooo disappointed when the screw broke off while I was wearing it. The gals at Towne Center Square, in Overland Park KS were very good when I took it back. It was 7 weeks waiting for a replacement. I am VERY cautious now as I am afraid it will happen again. Just a work to the wise......

This was given to me as a present by my son and family. It is so pretty and I especially love the fact that the charms ride on the topside of the bracelet. The bracelet is feminine and lightweight. Thanks to Marlin, Marlene, Ray and Zoe.....also to the ladies at LoLo Boutique in Fullerton, CA

I started out with a regular charm bracelet and quickly discovered I did not like the flopping around my beads did, even with a stopper (not from Brighton). So I went looking for something like this. Rhis is perfect! I can hold a few metal toned charms and a few of the murano style in different colors. The bangle does not flop around my wrist because it is oval shaped. It has a beautiful finish and it is very easy to use. I wish the scroll design was not the part which was covered but it is still a beautiful piece. Beware though, if you have a large wrist, this may be too snug.
I wish that....
By Sue from Palos Verdes, CA

the scroll design was on the part that isn't covered up by the charms. It's pretty when worn charmless, but when I put the charms on, the under part is plain. Also, I hope you will make a bracelet that will fit the mini charms. I think that would be nice and delicate. I'd like that,and I think wearing 2 of them would be stunning.

I love this bangle charm bracelet-it s not too heavy. At first I was frustrated with undoing the screw, but realized that the end is magnetized and made it easier to screw it back on.

I have such small wrists. I do have their smallest one, it still spins a bit, but I don't mind at all, I still just love it. Great quality and lots of great charms to choose from. My birthday is coming up and I've already picked out several different charms for my "wish list". Thanks!
I love it

I shop online a lot, but this was the first product I was compelled to submit a review for. That alone should tell you how great it is! I had several Brighton charms on one of their regular charm bracelets and they kept falling to the underside of my wrist. Not only couldn't you see them, they kept getting in the way. I purchased this bangle to put my charms on, and voila--problems solved! Now they all stay right on the top side of my wrist and since the bangle is oval, it doesn't roll around at all! I love it and am getting compliments on it again (although I've had the charms for 2 years!)
LOVE IT...LOVE IT...LOVE IT!!!!!!

I've always loved the look and style of Brighton. A dear friend gave me my first piece which was a necklace. Then my daughter gave me another necklace. Those were the only pieces I had until this Christmas. I wanted a charm bracelet but didn't mention it to anyone. Then to my surprise, my son and his wife bought me this bangle with the West Virginia charm, which is where I am from and where he was born. I love it so much I can't wait to start collecting more charms for it. The best thing about this style is, I have arthritis in my hands, and the hinged, magnetic closure is perfect. I can put it on and take it off by myself. What a GREAT gift. A keepsake forever.
