A little heavy
on January 25, 2008
I recently purchased this product at a local outlet store. I've seen the commercial enough to know that I would benefit from this product. As someone with carpal tunnel it's hard to put my jewelry on, the magnet in this particular product makes life a lot easier for me.
There are two big downsides for me, however. The chains on my necklaces are thin and getting the clasps to properly fit together was a big project on my part. I had to pull out my jewelry-making kit in order to add a larger ring onto my necklace. I also added the two-inch extender. It was a bit awkward though. Since all of the slack falls to one side it makes the necklace seem lopsided. Another downfall is the weight of the magnetic clasp itself.
For someone with heavier jewelry I'd highly recommend this product. For those of us using thin platinum or gold necklaces, I'd recommend looking into a standard magnetic clasp through a local jeweler.
