A slow reveal...

I'm wondering if aquamarine has less pointy culets or if it's cut flatter so it doesn't stick out as much? I'd absolutely love to keep this one because my husband picked it after careful consideration.

The pain is not terrible but noticeable. Somewhat like baby ants nipping.
Taking pictures of a cutlet is harder than it looks :P . Hopefully you can see it. It only sticks out a little. I definitely understand the disappointment. :hugs:

You're very kind to take such a helpful photo! That made me curious about it too, and I found out the diamonds are not equally pointy...!

Here's the worst offender against another. Perhaps instead of exchanging I can just get the worst offender swapped out for a flatter melee!! :biggrin:

That’s sounds like a reasonable request! Email the sales associate and see what is suggested

I'm going to tough it out for another week to see if it still bothers me. I know I'd absolutely regret it if exchanged for anything else, because I really do love everything else about it.

The way it hangs off just a bit, and how it fits in with my most casual outfits. It was honestly not what I'd choose myself but I'm so glad he picked it!

Sorry slightly obsessed snapping pics of arm everywhere xD (feel free to share more pics of yours as well!)

And one more pic in sunlight because damn if it isn't sparkling with all the colors!

I have 5 DBTY bracelets and the one with the largest stones poke my arm the most. I don’t feel it at all with the other 4 bracelets. I was not used to the 20 stones poking in the beginning but I got used to it. Your bracelet looks stunning on you, give it more time and you will get used to it.

I really do like the diamonds by the yard collection. I had a bracelet just like yours. I gifted it to my niece a few years ago. It's a beauty.

See if you get used to it. I remember mine poking me, but it didn't bother me.

Thanks for your help earlier too! I took your advice since I wanted to wear it 24/7. Which DBTY of yours is your favorite?

What a lucky niece! :flowers: Such a classic piece to get as a gift.

I tried tying a piece of string under the most offensive diamond, and it didn't bother me all day!!

Then as soon as I took off the string at night, it started nipping, so I used a magnifying glass and I think I found the problem!!

The pokey diamond is set slightly tilted, and lower than the others.

SA said they can add a backing to the diamonds, the same they do for DBTY necklaces, but seeing how much the bracelet flips I think it would ruin the design. I hope they'll be able to just readjust this one diamond for me!

Otherwise I'm completely in love with this bracelet, how light and sparkly it is. Luckily I don't like layering otherwise I'd have a DBTY problem! :nuts: Very addictive line.

It looks fabulous on you and am so glad the SA can help with it! You have a DH with great taste!

I hope your SA can fix that stone for you. Don’t put a basket on it as you want every bezel to look the same.

Here are my DBTY bracelets. My favorite is the twenty stone one but I don’t wear it as much as the other four. I wear the four pretty much 247.
