Coming to Malta for the fist time few years ago I noticed this beautiful feminine brand in almost every souvenir shop near the beach. They had different bracelets – one that are personalized, infinity bracelets, personalized necklaces and necklaces with a different symbols. Everything very cute and chic, perfect for the summer or as a gift to someone special.
Last August I decided to buy one bracelet for my birthday. I was choosing between one with symbols and the one with my letter ‘V’ on it wich I really liked. The price was about 6€ and the package was perfect, pink with a golden letters. I loved the simplicity of the bracelet so I though I will be wearing it every day. Wich I did, but only after a week the golden color started to get scratched and the bracelet became half silver. It was obvious that this color was so bad, only after a week it came off. It happened to me before with some cheap jewellery but maybe after a few months or so. I can not tell you how disappointed I was. The ordinary summer bracelets that you buy in souvenir shops that cost about 1-2 € will last at least the whole summer, even if you go to the sea with them. And I didn’t even wear mine while swimming. There was nothing I did that can justify why the bracelet was completely ruined and looked like it was 5 years old.
So the brand is really nice, eye-catching, charming and they promote nice things – love, freedom, free spirit. I realy don’t want to say this – but here we go: the products are crap! I am sorry Marina De Buchi, but I hope you tried wearing your jewels and you saw what happens to it after a while. I hope you will fix this and start using some good quality colors, even the things from Alli Express and other Chinese sites can last much longer and are 6 times cheaper.
And to you my lovely readers: did you have any of their product? I am really curious to know whether this happens to everyone or I just have a really bad luck withy jewels (see here another similar story).
We can all make the conclusion : yes, brand can be perfect and looking like million dollars but the product can still be crap! Nowadays with the power of Instagram and some creativity, it is easy to make a great looking portfolio, to establish your “brand” as something really worthy, but that is exactly the advantage that big companies sometimes use to showcase their crap as a something good and take money from people. That’s why I want to share with you all of my experience with this brands and make you think twice.
Please, let me know if you had similar experiences with any brand.
Love you so much,
