New Start-to-Finish product keeps link bracelets in place

Start-to-Finish LLC, manufacturer of affordable diamond link bracelets, has announced a new product, the Bracelet Weight, developed based on a customer request to have her link bracelet kept in place on her wrist. Bracelet owners with several links - regardless of the manufacturer - experience rotation whereby the snake chain and clasp are more often on the top of the wrist than the links. The retail jeweler who made the initial request could not find an advertised product to meet the need. Start-to-Finish set out to provide an affordable way to ensure the customer enjoys only the beautiful part of the link bracelet, whether made by Start-to-Finish or its competitors.

The Bracelet Weight is a counterweight designed to hold the 14K gold and diamond links on top of the wrist, therefore preventing rotation. It is made of brass and is yellow or white gold-plated. It is easy to install as a jeweler simply attaches the weight’s O ring to the clasp. Once all links are added and the item is complete, the bracelet weight is no longer needed. The cost is under $30.

STF-Oct

Start-to-Finish created the Bracelet Weight to prevent unwanted rotation on link bracelets.

 

A perfect addition for fall, Start-to-Finish’s first Bracelet Weight product style is shaped like a pumpkin. This style premiered at the RJO Show, was presented at the Atlanta Show, and was well received at both.

“Most people said they were glad to know about this as a potential solution if a customer approaches them with this concern. I’ve been wearing a five-link bracelet with this weight for several months and it really works,” says President Renee Singer. All diamond link bracelet retailers are encouraged to sell this item as an add-on to Start-to-Finish™ or any bracelet type onto which links are added once multiple links exist.

For more information, call 888-753-8340 or visit www.start-to-finishbracelets.com/styles to see their entire product line.
