Review on Hermès’s Clic H Bracelet as seen on Tiffany, Sooyoung, and Jessica.
One of Hermès’ most iconic bracelets, the Clic H bracelet is a piece Hermes collectors should have. Featuring a ‘H’ clasp to represent the brand, Clic H bracelets are one of the easiest Hermes items one can find.
Coming in an array of vibrant enamel colours, the Clic H bracelet comes in 3 different ‘wideness,’ – narrow, wide, and extra wide. You can also choose which hardware you would like for the bracelet (either gold plated hardware or silver palladium hardware.) Tiffany, Sooyoung, and Jessica all have the narrow versions of the bracelet.
The bracelet is made in France and the quality of it is superb. The design of the bracelet is a classic and it would never go out of style. It is also very simple and casual which will attract the attention of different ages, particularly consumers in the range of 10s – 30s.
When I first bought this bracelet, I was confused as to how I would wear the bracelet because the diameter looks pretty small. Hermès uses a rather discreet and interesting way for people to wear the bracelet. The ‘H’ clasp can be slightly turned and opened, allowing the customer to fit their hand inside. If a pick pocketer were to steal your bracelet, it’d be difficult for him / her to actually get it out of your hand.
One of the drawbacks I find is that although I bought the smallest size of the bracelet, it is still quite loose and would occasionally drape down my arm which I find to be slightly annoying. The bracelet is also rather heavy for a bracelet due to the material it is made out of which might be a turn off for some people.
Another drawback is wearing the bracelet itself. After opening the bracelet through the ‘H’ clasp, you need to close the bracelet and return the ‘H’ clasp back to it’s original position for it to secure. When you first buy the bracelet, it is difficult to connect the two parts of the bracelet together because it is not as flexible and as a result, part of your skin near the wrist area might be accidentally ‘clasped’ along the way as you try to return the bracelet into the original position. Once the bracelet has been worn many times though, it will start to get more ‘flexible.’
The biggest drawback for consumers would definitely be the price. For the narrow version of the bracelet, it costs $610 but to some people, the price may be no surprise as Hermes usually has a high price range for everything they produce due to the fact that they want to be exclusive as a brand.
All in all, it is a great bracelet to have. It is classy and simple and would definitely appeal to many people and would give your outfit more ‘pop!’ If the price was toned down a bit more, it would surely attract even more consumers!
