BornPretty Wrist Watch


Born Pretty asked me to review a wrist watch... after some decision time, I decided on the Rhinestoned Metallic Watch.  Though I know of Born Pretty as a nail art/accessory seller, they're branching out to sell watches! The various types of women's watches which include the wrist watch (like the one I got), dainty bracelet watch, and unique LED watch

My boyfriend got this package and opened it for me. He texted me a picture and my first opinion was definitely that the watch was gorgeous. It looked luxurious (despite being very cheap) and as an accessory/fashion piece, it works very well. When I got home... I realized how large the watch is. Not only does it not fit on my regularly sized female wrist, it doesn't even fit on my boyfriend's wrist! 




While that doesn't mean that the watch was faulty or unattractive in any way, it's definitely something to watch out for. If you get a nice watch at a low price... are you also prepared to get some links removed? Personally, for me, it's not worth the hassle.

  2. very cute store with fashion watches. i have to have links removed no matter the watch. i think it's a good design feature :). sorry you can't use the watch!

  3. Gorgeous indeed! I like that it's very sleek, and the big face makes wrists look smaller. The colors pair up nicely too. Great watch. THanks for the review!

  4. I do love the face of that watch, but yeah - totally huge. I have so many watches that I really need to pull out and wear. I'm guessing none of them are still running, though, it's been that long.

  5. Definitely a cute style. Too bad it's too big...I wouldn't want to hassle with getting some links removed either

  6. it's a cute style, a lot of watches they intentionally make them big to remove the links because it's better than the latter. but the watch is a bit huge :)

  7. Nice watch, but the size does take away from it quite a bit. I'd never heard of Born Pretty until I read this post, so I checked it out, and OMG there is so much great stuff on it!!! I saw a lot of the bracelet watches that were gorgeous, but I'll make sure to watch out for the sizes if I decide to buy any.

  12. The watch really looks nice on the photo. I thought it would be those oversized ones that's a kind of fashion too but if your man can't even wear it, it is way too big. That's really true. If something is already so cheap, you wouldn't want to spend the time and effort to do something to it.

  13. getting links removed is pretty regular in my book. my wrists are small so almost all watches have to be adjusted. this looks pretty good though

  14. I do find the watch lovely. It probably would have helped if they indicated in their website the size.

  17. It's definitely very pretty though! Sad that it's not too big for both of your wrists, but you could probably find a cheap place that could take out a couple links. I hope you can! Again, great review.

    Always,

  22. I would totally wear something like that! I am in the market for a watch, too! Hmm...

  23. i've never worn watches because the ones i like never fit. my wrists are the tiniest thing about me, so it makes bracelets and watches difficult to find.

  37. It's too bad the watch is so large. It seems like a hassle either way but perhaps you can take the links out yourself?

  38. Wow this is such an unusual watch! I am loving colourful watches at the moment but this is certainly tempting...

  39. Aww... bummer that it's so big because it really is a great looking watch! Take it to a jeweler and see how much they'll charge to remove some links. It's a pity to let such a stunning watch go to waste.

  40. The watch looks so pretty!! It's such a shame it didn't fit on your wrist :(
