STYLE FAILURES: Designer jewellery that does not live up to it’s hype. Or a decent lifespan!

I originally spoke about this Samantha Wills bangle in December of last year, and now, this is what has happened.

This only happened last Saturday night. It was sitting on my jewellery doll and I picked up the bangle beside it, I heard a crack and a thud and when I looked I found it in two. It had cracked, split and fallen apart almost perfectly. If I hold it together you cannot see the crack on the outside. However, there is no point me gluing it as it was already a touch too small and I had to squeeze my hand in and out. I hope it doesn’t happen to my black and jade one.

Strangely, I’m not upset. Yes, I’m annoyed as it cost me $88 on ebay so there’s no way I can get a refund or another one as it’s several years old and they are not sold any more, but I can always cut off the ornament and put it on another bangle.

Still, I’m not upset.

Not sure what I’m going to do except for what I mentioned above, I will contact the designer on her facebook page to see if there’s anything to do, otherwise, it’s a waste of $88!

    What a bummer. I know how you feel; I haven’t been above throwing a hissy fit when good jewelry goes bad. Best of luck in resurrecting the ornament.

    When expensive jewellery breaks it’s heartbreaking, and annoying.

    I contacted the designer via her facebook page and her office told me to email them to see what could be done.
