Closure on Sterling silver bangles

Post by CC » 1 week ago

I have a problem with the closures on Sterling silver Bangles. I can barely touch the closure when the bangle is on my wrist and it will open. Anyone else have this problem. The stainless Bangles with the same clasp do not open as easily as it is a stronger material. I wish they would put safety clasps on the Sterling Bangles to secure there is no accidental opening of bangle which can result in loss of bangle. . I certainly love shoplc and their great prices. No other jewelry shopping channel can compare in my personal opinion.

Hello, CC! :)

I am having the exact issue with many of the bangles I've purchased!
The clasp is different from any I've seen. It sort of "fits together" somewhat like a puzzle piece. Except it doesn't stay closed!
I have MANY of these bangles and quite a few I purchased to give as gifts. Now I feel embarrassed to give these to anyone because they're just going to fall off!
I prefer bangles without ANY clasp, but if a bracelet has a clasp, I prefer toggles (with a few extra links for different sizes) or a lobster clasp (again with a few extra links).
I was showing these to my sister and neither of us could get them to stay shut. If I could fit my hand through them without opening them, I'd super glue them shut! :x
I bought so many of these and I hope ShopLC doesn't continue to use these type of clasps! I know I'm not buying anything with clasps like these ever again!
It doesn't even take much for the bangle to open, either. It isn't opening because I'm tugging a shirt over my head and my arms through the sleeves while wearing the bangle; it isn't opening because the purse on my arm has slid down and hit the bangle, or because of any other reason while wearing it.
It simply will not stay shut! This occurs when I'm putting the bangle ON! :cry: I LOVE these bangles, yet I cannot wear any of them! :cry:
This problem makes all of these beautiful bangles worthless, because I can't wear them. And I'm certainly not going to give any as gifts, because they are not going to stay on! :| They are obviously defective!

ShopLC, could you PLEASE stop using these odd "clasps"?

I HAVE superglued the clasp together on the Bangles that will slide over my wrist so as not to loose them.

I checked and I CAN get them on without having to open them. I'm going to superglue them shut! :D

But it angers me because we should not have to be doing this! :evil:
