I'm curious.....for those who have the love bracelet and travel.......how much of a pain in the butt is it?

I was at Cartier today and the manager told me some airlines have been "trained" understand that the bracelet can't be removed -lol.

Does anyone use the Fly Clear lanes and does it make any difference getting thru security if you're wearing the bracelet?

Please share your experiences :yes:

My question was really not about whether the bracelet will set off the alarms, I'm guessing it will. I was more concerned about how TSA reacts to the bracelet and the inability to remove it...


How much hassle will TSA give you? And if you're a registered traveler (with a Fly Clear pass), does that help at all?

I have a rose gold love bracelet and it sometimes sets off security. I have had mine for 4+ years and it seemes to be setting off the alarms more and more . . . . but security is trained for it. I think that as these bracelets grew in popularity and security got tightened they did school the agents that these bracelets set off the alarms.

I wear mine all the time and it is still random about setting off the alarms. It is not a big deal . . . . as long as you are comfortable being pulled to the side and searched with a wand

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I was thinking about buying the cuff rather than the bracelet but it according to Cartier, it's not available with diamonds...

So now my only decision is 4 or 10 diamonds. DH should be thrilled...it will make his VD shopping so much easier this year ;)

I have the same and it sets off security alarms at random ... it's weird.

mine go off randomly... but i just pull up my sweater and reveal it and they leave me alone. i have never been asked to take it off or anything like that... sometimes they take the wand and swipe me again. i believe their biggest concern is concealed items that set the alarm off--- i have mine on for 10 yrs...the second one for 5 yrs now- and have never taken it off! even during 2 childbirths!
