Having never grown out of her childhood obsession with jewelry and all things that sparkle, Melinda Maria debuted her brand in 2005. Based in Los Angeles, the designer is influenced by the effortless cool that the people in the city exude. “People don’t want to look like they tried that hard to be cool. And there is a chic casualness about LA fashion and culture that I love.” The designer likes to keep her eyes open when looking for design inspiration. “Anything can be inspiring if you are open to it and aware."
I waited for months and months on the waitlist for these, all the while seeing if there were any alternatives elsewhere. Nothing came close to these beauties so when they finally restocked, I jumped on 7 of them! They’re so so beautiful but I just can’t bring myself to wear them seeing as they’re so delicate. Wore them once and 3 bent out of shape so I exchanged 2 of them. Wore them once more with the new ones and same thing. I want to love them with my whole heart especially considering how much I spent, but I’m just too afraid to wear them now which kind of renders them useless.

I bought this bracelet for my girlfriend this Christmas because she has wanted it forever... the first time she wore it one of the stones fell out. By the third day it was missing 5 stones. On top of that I sent it back as a return and still have not been refunded! I used to buy almost every piece of jewelry for my girlfriend here but I don’t think I will be buying anything else from this site.
Hi Patrick, we are so sorry to hear about this experience! I see that our team has issued a refund and have resolved this issue for you. Please reach out with any further questions/concerns. XO
Beautiful and elegant, I am in love with it!
Not sure these are opals; almost looks like drops of paint instead of stones; otherwise very pretty
Hi Barbara! The opals are simulated, as described on the product page. If you aren't 100% with this, we will gladly look into your return eligibility! Please reach out to "firstname.lastname@example.org". Thanks! XO
The bracelet is beautiful but I got it for my wife for her birthday and it bent out of its circular shape after only a couple of times wearing it. She can still wear it but it is bent and doesn’t sit on her wrist the same way it first did
