This cuff manages to both be delicate and a statement piece at the same time – it’s perfect for me!

  1. I keep frantically checking for a second spoiler! I need a reason to buy this, and I wasn’t WOWed by the Bittar spoiler. :/

    • If this is the best PS and NM can do for a $250 luxury box, then I won’t be buying. The cuff is OK but the $195 price tag is ridiculous! Alexis Bittar jewelry can be found at TJ Maxx. I got a ring there for $35!

  2. ugh, I really hope there’s something amazing in this box because this bracelet does not look like it’s worth $200! sigh…

  3. Liz, do you think this will adjust enough to fit a larger wrist?

  4. I love this…. if it was in the $100 limited edition box.

  5. My husband saw bracelet & bought box for my birthday. I’m so excited!

    • Husband of the year!

  6. Damn, I thought the NM box was going to be a hard no for me until I saw this spoiler! I love Alexis Bittar jewelry & I always get compliments when I wear any! That cuff looks beautiful & delicate & perfect for the holidays! plus I don’t think Nordstrom carries AB anymore so N rack won’t have it either soon ☹️

  7. For the price they should offer the choice of silver or gold. I don’t wear gold so easy pass.

    • Same. I rarely wear gold…and already gotten a few gold(plated) bracelets from sub boxes that meet my needs if I do need gold. If I could get this in silver, I’d order in a heartbeat. It really is beautiful.

  8. Pretty, but I find it similar to the Kendra cuff I got in a seasonal limited PS not so terribly long ago. And you can find Alexis Bittar at Nordstrom Rack well below retail on the regular.

    • Yes you can! I have seen Alexis and Rachel Zoe jewelry for under $40! Retail value is not a good indicator of value. I never buy into the retail value.

  9. I’m in!!! Love it ….. yessss 🙂 🙂 🙂

  10. Liz

    Does the bracelet / will it catch on sweaters?

    Are you getting boxes super early?

    • For some of the recent PS boxes, they are sending the bloggers spoiler items prior to shipping so they can (hopefully) convince more people to buy.

      • Dear PSMH:
        Please keep sending all the things to Liz so we can see them early! Thank you!

    • Just tested it out a sweater – no catching! You should be good 🙂

      And POPSUGAR sends me boxes early for review purposes, but for this box I have only received the spoiler item so far!

  11. Not a fan! No fomo for me as of now. I barely wear jewelry. When I do it’s much more dainty and understated. Hope everyone that purchased enjoys!

  12. FYI… I just asked Neiman Marcus if they would allow this gold cuff to be exchanged for the identical one in silver they also carry even though it was purchased as part of this box and they said:

    Yes you should be able to if they are the same price. If they are not then you may need to pay the difference….

    So that could be an option as well assuming that the silver is still available at that time. 🙂

  13. I am not in love. Was waiting for the first spoiler to decide on whether to buy and I don’t think I will buy now. This is probably the main item making up the box and I feel like my wrists are too small for cuffs.

  14. Beautiful bracelet but I will not spend that much money on this box if they don’t release more spoilers first :-/

  15. It’s beautiful for those who like that style but I’m afraid I couldn’t pull it off. I prefer “dainty” jewelry. The box is still a pass for me. My husband will be happy. Does anyone else have to intercept the mail so your husband doesn’t see how many boxes you’re getting each month? I do. I’m getting way too many boxes!!! It’s so fun and when I read MSA, I keep wanting more.

    • Yes. I check my trackers constantly!

    • I have the higher dollar items sent to my office for the same reason!

  16. Glad I saved my money its pretty but the ring we got last time by Alexis bittar turned my finger green. Its beautiful but not work $195 ? I think I’m over pop sugar

  17. It looks much less gold in your photos than on the website. Very nice! I don’t think I get to buy another fancy bracelet when I have yet to wear the one from the PS Holiday box last year (although this one is much nicer!)

  18. Ohmygosh, I love this bracelet SO much!!! I’ve almost purchased it on its own so many times! I can’t believe the first spoiler is for something I already have loved for such a long time! I am ON BOARD!!!

    • Yay!!! ?

  19. How are you already wearing this cuff? Do you already have this box? Hmmmm.

    • I do not have the box, but POPSUGAR sent me the spoiler item early so I could answer any questions about it. Hope that it helps!

      • Well, that was a good decision on their part, because it took me all of 30 seconds to decide to order the box after seeing it on you! Much better than seeing it on a store website.

  20. Whew! My money is still safe. It’s a very pretty bracelet but probably not something I would wear and wouldn’t work as a gift for anybody I know. A fabulous home item may have been a different story…

  21. This would make a great gift.. but I’m going to need another spoiler to make a decision….

  22. I really like it, but do I want to buy the box or just swap for or buy the bracelet? Hmmm…

  23. Very pretty, I’ll be looking to swap for this!

  24. ‘gold cuff’ is literally on my christmas list this year…so I love this!! But $250 is still a lot. I’ll either wait for another spoiler or wait and see what Rachel Zoe has to offer in her winter box, then make a decision.

  25. I love that it is a thinner cuff! As beautiful as it is, I sometimes feel like Wonder Woman wearing the Kendra Scott Ainsley Bracelet from the 2015 Summer Box. I appreciate the delicateness of this one. Beautiful selection, I am happy with my purchase.

  26. I love this!! But would wear it and love it more if it were SILVER. Womp, womp. I’m a sad puppy over this. Mine will be going up for swap:(

    • You can exchange it at NM for silver!

  27. I absolutely LOVE IT. I am so glad I got this box. Cuff bracelets are my favorite type of bracelet. I am too happy. I tried not to look, but could not help myself. **Delighted**

  28. This is not really my style….I guess I will be passing this year.

  29. LOVEEE Alexis Bittar but don’t love this….

  30. I feel like a broken record, but why can I not have that in SILVER?!!!

    • They had Silver last year. It would be nice if choose option. There are some Silver up on swap boards from last year.

    • Last year’s Silver option is listed under – Small Chain Tassel Pendant Necklace by Eddie Borgo

  31. Yay for spoilers!! Saved me the cash on this box. It’s pretty but I would never wear something like this. Next….

  32. Not my style, so it’s a pass for me.

  33. I’m browsing the NM online store right now, and there are so many gorgeous, useful home and tech items. If the spoiler was one of those, I’d jump on this box. As it is, my wallet is closed. (I may be in the minority here, as I never wear costume jewelry, so if others love the bracelet, that’s great!)

    Such an easy pass so far, whew!

  34. It is beautiful. One more spoiler and I may take the plunge. Was kind of hoping there would be a make-up spoiler so I wouldn’t be tempted at all…

  35. Omg!! I love this cuff but sadly the cost of the box it totally out of my budget. If anyone wants to swap theirs please let me know. I have a few high end items I would be willing to swap for this.

  36. Not yet impressed with this as the first spoiler. I need another before I bite! I love the Alexis Bittar ring from Rachel Zoe’s box last year. If this were in the $100 box, I would order this now. But $250 is a lot to fork over without at least one more spoiler. So far no FOMO for me.

    • I agree! I love that ring and this would be nice with it, but not for that price without more spoilers.

  37. Gorgeous and perfect for the holidays! I can’t wait!

  38. Do you know if this is real gold?

    • No it is not real gold. It is gold plated. You can find a lot of Alexis Bittar jewelry for way less by searching online.

    • It’s real 18k gold, but it’s not SOLID gold. It’s gold plated.

  39. Hard pass for me (thank goodness!). Money = saved 😉

  40. Omg, that’s stunning!!!! I want it!!!

    But I have to be careful with my apparently big 7.5″ wrists (and kind fat arms, which is an issue since this is a cuff.)

    What part measures 5.5″? Can you tell me what the diameter is at its widest point? That could help. … And how adjustable is it, really? (I thought his ring from the Rachel Zoe BoS would be adjustable, but it isn’t really.)

    Thanks so much for your help!! 🙂

    :: fingers crossed::

    • This bracelet is definitely more adjustable than the BoS ring. I’d say you could get at least a 3-inch diameter, maybe more. (I have it at about 2.25 inches in the picture.) Hope that helps! 🙂

      • 3″ diameter?? Really? Without warping it so it looks funny??? I need about 2.75″ diameter, so if you’re sure about the 3″ thing, I’m buying this box! 😀

        (I will be do broken-hearted if this bracelet doesn’t fit me. SO! PRETTY!)

        • Hi Tamara,

          I’m going to email you pictures of the bracelet next to a tape measure with it open to 3 inches so you can make sure it doesn’t look funny to you. (It looks fine to me, but I want to make sure it looks good to you too since this box is $$)

  41. Very pretty! But I just can’t make cuff bracelets work. No FOMO for me so far.

  42. I wish I could afford this nox! What a gorgeous bracelet

  43. This is a really pretty bracelet, but this box is just way out of my budget 🙁 no matter what wonderful things it has in it lol

  44. Nope, not enough for me yet. I will keep my dollars for now!

    • Same here!!!

    • So will I!

    • likewise
