You mean the diamonds may scratch the onyx? It may. I haven't louped the onyx. With the naked eye, I don't see any scratches though. Do you mean the beads on the 5 motif getting scratched? Yeah, that could happen too. Of course the beads are too small for me to notice any scratching, unless I loupe the beads, which I would never do. There isn't enough WG surface area for me to be able to "see" any scratching. And I don't wear it this way for months at a time. I may get bored after a week or two and change it up. If over time, the onyx and WG seem worn, scratched to the extent that it bothers me, I'll just send it in to VCA to replace the motifs as needed and ask them to repolish the WG, or replate it. Likely, if that were to happen, it would take years, I mean 8-10 years. And I would definitely rather enjoy them for that time, wear them the way I want to wear them and repair later. This is different from my Love cuff, where scratches are so visible to the eye. I don't like wearing that piece with anything other than pieces that don't overlap it, like my Hermes leather cuffs.
@MakingTheGrade I know this is an old thread..but I just reset my cushion diamond into a solitaire bangle. I should be getting it in a few days...I’m wondering if it’s safe to stack bracelets like DBTY and bezel diamond bracelets with the bangle..It’s been a while since you got your bangle. Did stacking scratch the bangle? Do you feel it’s safe for the chain to fall over the diamonds? You know when you get something new you worry about the first scratch. Thanks!
There’s scratching to the metal of the bangle that I chalk up to the wear and tear, same as you’d see on well worn wedding bands. The stones are all fine though!
Thank you! And yes - my bracelet addiction knows no bounds & I clearly need intervention.
They arrived today after a long transit from the US (6 weeks - the seller & I were both about to give up & lodge a claim) & are open cuffs. One is sterling silver & one solid 14ct yellow gold, each 1.5mm wide. Might get her to make me some more...........
I'm nurturing a bit of a bracelet/ bangle obsession too. Its good to find a fellow obsessive
Although I'm tempted to wear bling on every finger, (for a maximum sparkle hit) I suspect its not a good look and I have restricted myself to adorning just my wedding finger and a right hand ring at any one time. But a curated stack of multiple bracelets/ bangles..... who could argue with that???
Oh I love those hammered bracelets! Where did you find those?
