Monica Viander or Stella & Dot bracelet

Anyone got one? I've been drooling over the Fiji bracelet on the website and would love one but wonder if they are a bit faddy or not? I'd prob go for the silver 'calm' one

Alternatively, I've also been eyeing up this bracelet from Stella & Dot. Not sure gold or silver....

I have the Monica Vinader one in silver with a brown thread. I love it and wear it most days - either by itself or with other bracelets.

Personally, I don't like the Stella & Dot one.

I have the renegade in both silver and gold, I love them both, although was surprised that it is on an elastic rather than a catch fastening iykwim.

I like the stella and dot one..gorgeous!

I have the Monica V one, the exact one you're looking at smile I wear it most days too, it's so simple it goes with everything and is subtly luxe. I often wear it layered with my cream leather Pandora bracelet, which only has a couple of silver charms on it; I think they go really well together.

Although we must have similar taste because I've been eyeing up that Stella and D one in silver! grin I loved the Eddie Borgo one it is a rip-off of and the price is good IMO.

Get both of them I would say the Fiji one as it's so classic and beautiful.

I sell S&D and have the renegade, but if it were a choice between these two specific bracelets, I would get the MV without a doubt!

mumto2lovelygals Thu 09-Aug-12 10:26:40

I have the renegade and I love it, I always get lots of comments. I think these two would look fab together!

SleepyFergus Thu 09-Aug-12 21:09:52

No no no, I can't get both can I?!

In still no closer to making a decision! Couple more questions to those that have either if you don't mind...

My wrists are v skinny...does the tie on the MV Fiji close neatly and not slip loose?

And how big is the S&D one and does it feel secure. Ie. dies it feel like flimsy elastic?

God I'm so tempted to get both....

I like the Stella and Dot bracelet. The other one is a bit meh.

bleedingheart Thu 09-Aug-12 21:24:05

I think the MV is likely to have more lasting appeal and looks good with other bracelets. The other one is nice but looks a lot like a lot of costume jewellery around at the moment.

ComeonComeon Thu 09-Aug-12 22:04:59

The slidey thing keeps firm and slim wrists should be fine IMO. I think it's classic, it's just a very slim silver bangle with a subtly cool tie bit.

You've made me look at the website now and now I want a mini Luna in silver and labradorite and another Fiji in hot pink.

SleepyFergus Thu 09-Aug-12 22:37:47

Comeon ooh, that is pretty. Did you see the regular silver Luna bracelet is £57 reduced from £115....

I think I'm leaning more towards the Fiji bracelet....but which colour?! Def silver for the metal but as for the ties...

Also thinking I might get the toggle engraved with the heart...

ComeonComeon Thu 09-Aug-12 23:12:01

Fergus no, where, I can'tfind it on site?? Arghh!

Liveinthepresent Thu 09-Aug-12 23:39:08

Ooh interesting - I have both ! Fiji in hot pink - gold vermeil .

And have 'gold' renegade with Devi bangles and prosper bracelet.

All gifts from lovely friends (spoilt)

Think MV is a bit more classic but have worn S&D much more this year - so you may well need both as serve different purposes!!

I also have small wrists - all fit well apart from bangles.

Now at high risk of wanting more having been on both websites!

I saw a stall of s and dot and thought it all looked quite cheap. The other bracelet is nicer IMO

SleepyFergus Fri 10-Aug-12 07:28:59

Comeon here you go! Found it by searching on 'Luna'. Seems to be hidden otherwise....]]

MissFoodie Fri 10-Aug-12 11:38:40

god no..........might have to order

WonaLotteofMedals Fri 10-Aug-12 11:47:29

I have a navy and silver one that I love and a nude and silver one too. They are lovely and fit my small wrists fine. The slidey bit is firm as others have said.

TenaPenny Fri 10-Aug-12 13:33:03

ha! only just saw this. i have the S and D one and LOVE it

TenaPenny Fri 10-Aug-12 13:34:30

agree the MV one is rather predictable

kennardpw Thu 28-Mar-13 14:06:38

My husband got me a bracelet and earings from I enjoy them very muchsmile

I am returning two of MV Fiji friendship bracelets for the 2nd time, due to their loose fitting (the toggle keeps coming loose every 30 minutes and the strings broke after wearing them for 2 months). I am not convinced that MV bracelets are worth the price you pay.
