ARE YOU KIDDING ME ????

Started 1390239777.397 in Jewelry Talk | Last reply 1390437708.27 by Tinkrbl44

I watched part of Sunday's Bronzo show with Lisa. She presented a short black spinel necklace THAT HAD THE CLASP ON THE LEFT INSTEAD OF THE RIGHT SIDE of the necklace. She admits this was clearly a mistake in manufacturing so just turn the necklace to the front and look in a mirror to close it!!!! I laughed out loud. Why would I spend my money on a piece of jewelry that was not made correctly.

Quality control? Why wasn't the entire quantity of this piece sent back to Italy to be done correctly ???

OMG it just shows how cheaply made this jewelry is-why would anyone buy it?

There was a bracelet that I got recently, forget exactly what it was. But the way I put on clasp bracelets, the clasp was put on backwards. It made it difficult to get on, especially because it was made too snug anyway. I sent it back. Agree with you -- those necklaces should have been sent back to the manufacturer.

Maybe it was designed for left-handed people, like some can openers.

RE bracelet clasps, well, there are different ways to put on a bracelet. And, two wrists to choose from.

I'm beginning to think that people just like to complain. All. The. Time. About everything. {#emotions_dlg.unsure}

Yeah, I was thinking maybe it would be easier for the left-handed people to clasp. But it wouldn't be for me. I'm right handed.

New marketing possibilities for the Q - left hand jewelry and right hand jewelry.

A left-handed necklace! What's not to like? :)

I wouldn't buy it because I don't buy costume jewelry, but I never even noticed which side a clasp was on. I just clasp it.

I'm left-handed so maybe I've been ignorantly clasping right-handed clasps all these years. hehe

Bippity boppity BOOYAH!

I think left-handed people are pretty used to living in a right-handed world. But this pieces at least makes you sympathize with them, doesn't it?

I didn't even know there was a 'right' side.

I put my chains on any old way, I don't think it makes a difference which side has the clasp.

I am right handed. I cannot put a necklace on where the clasp is on the left side, meaning I have to open the clasp with my left hand.

For some necklaces, I have to turn them around so I can see how to clasp it anyway. I think what's more important is being able to get it off and on easily. I never give thought to clasp placement. Maybe some people wouldn't even have noticed. But if it was a goof, they should have sent it back anyway.

I put all my clasp bracelets on the same way, on the same wrist, and this one was backwards. I would not have returned it just for that, but I decided that it was just not worth what I paid for it, so back it went. I am much more picky these days and have vowed to not buy on impulse anymore. Regarding the OP, at least Lisa pointed out the flaw, then people can decide to buy it or not.

I just returned a Steel By Design bracelet that was impossible to close. Not only was the bracelet too stiff to hold with one hand and and clip with the other but the "pull" on the clasp was upside down. Called CS and they said they'd refund my return shipping so I sent it back. There's no excuse for poor manufactured jewelry. What the heck happened to the "Q" in QVC?

Are they still trying to sell this stuff as "real" jewelry?

Whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

And you are including yourself in this assessment, I assume???

I'm pretty sure all the left-handers are all {#emotions_dlg.thumbup1} {#emotions_dlg.thumbup} and "now you know how we feel about every necklace ever! Boo-hoo about your one wonky necklace. {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}"

I don't know what piece this is, so I have no idea if this would work, but when I get a pendant with a clasp like that, I slide the chain out and re-insert it the other direction.

If it bothers you, don't buy it. But if so many left-handed people can adapt to the many right-handed necklaces out there, it seems like it shouldn't be impossible for the right-handers to manage it.

I am right handed. I cannot put a necklace on where the clasp is on the left side, meaning I have to open the clasp with my left hand.

how different we all are! I'm right handed and I don't have the slightest difficulty opening a clasp with my left hand. I can't imagine what's hard about it! How funny!

I think we must just get used to doing things a particular way and then we can't adapt. I bet I have a preference in some other area that you'd have absolutely no issues with!

Anyway, I'm going to pay attention to my necklaces now to see if there's usually a 'right' side that the clasp is on. I must be the least observant person!

The item referred to in this thread is J288274 GILI for Bronzo Black Spinel Necklace. It is a "fixed" chain attached to crescent shape black spinel. Sure enough, the photo shows clasp is on the left side but not mentioned in the written description.

Wow,that's really bad business.

I'm a lefty and I just flip over necklaces to clasp them. They usually have a swivel clasp and that's helpful. IMO, it's no big deal which side the clasp is on. Bracelets are sometimes a bit more difficult so I sometimes use a "Bracelet Buddy."

Please note that with this particular necklace if you just flipped it over to clasp it, the unfinished back of the necklace is what would be seen instead of the spinel on the front of the necklace.

With bracelets, I can clasp them different ways (over, under, etc.), and I don't always wear them on my right wrist anyway.

Yes, you're right. I did notice that about this particular necklace, but in that case I'd just turn the clasp to the front and connect it that way. Of course, I'm used to doing lots of things backwards.Smile

Not that it would've been a deal-breaker if I otherwise loved the necklace, but she would've done well to keep that little tidbit to herself. Personally, I wouldn't be interested had it been manufactured correctly. They need to give Bronzo a nice long rest.

I no longer buy any bracelets with the lobster or o-ring clasps because they are just too annoying ..... and no one should have to "fight" with their jewelry.

In bracelets, I now prefer the stretch, cuff or bangle ..... or the magnetic clasp.
