I love photo gifts, these are always a huge hit on holidays/bdays. I ordered the key chain a few years ago and it was made fantastically and has held up perfectly. This year I decided I would give the bracelet a go....so disappointing! All the holding links are loose after 3 days of wear, now I'm not wearing it for fear of losing the entire thing. The charm it's self is great....the bracelet is junk and maybe even a bit worse then that.....50$ later I am now looking for a better bracelet to put the charm on.
I never expected to see such a poor quality from Shutterfly, spec with this price. I am wondering, some of the older great reviews, if maybe they had a better product and have just got cheap and junky now?

I have to start by saying I love the Shutterfly photo gifts but this one was very disappointing! The quality isn't very good and they also arrived with rust on the end of the toggles. The photo bracelet is a great idea but Shutterfly needs to find a better quality bracelet for the price. I would say currently they should only charge $19.95 the way it is now. Also Shutterfly's customer service is fantastic. I called as soon as I received the bracelets and saw the condition they were in. They quickly replaced them for me. Thank You Debbie in customer Service:)

Wow! I am soooo glad I read all of the reviews before ordering this for my mother, MIL and SIL!! I am a repeat customer of shutterfly but I am very saddened that you would produce such low quality items. I will not be ordering any of these now. And I also agree, the ability to add charms would be much better.

I bought one of these last year and it was SO SO nice and made of real sterling silver. I bought this one and it is soooooo cheap feeling and is SILVER PLATED. I did not see this anywhere in the description. What happened Shutterfly??? I guess I should've read the reviews of others before I made this purchase. :-( VERY disappointed.

Horrible cheap quality
So I have ordered so much from Shutterfly with huge excitement and this one was of no exception. I couldn't wait to see it. Only to be dissappointed by how dull and cheap it looks and feels. My husband and I both agreed that most toys out of quarter machines seem to be of a heavier and shinier material. This was so sad receiving such a cheap quality product. I read the reviews and assumed that maybe some are just so picky and that isnt the case. It is worth no more than five dollars and felt embarrassed to have spent so much and something the looks sooo cheap. Will surely not be ordering the necklace considering I had plans to do so. Dont waste a dollar on this bracelet.

I bought one of these for mymom a couple of years ago. It was a heavy, quality sterling bracelet. I decided to get one for myself for my bday this year. It is a completely different bracelet. Very cheap. Feels like plastic. It made me sad. I was so excited to get the same bracelet I had ordered before and was very disappointed.

I should have read the reviews before I purchased this piece of junk. I totally agree with AMHI and other disappointed buyers of this project. While the picture charm is very cute, the braclet itself is junk. Mine came with black marks on it and not shiny at all. I ordered this to give to my daughter as a special 30th birthday gift, but not now. My advise, look elsewhere.

I ordered this bracelet two years ago when I had my second daughter. I love the braclett and quality is great. I have been asking Shutterfly for two years to sell additional charms so I can add pictures as my daughter grows. However, I do not want cheap silver plated. I agree with everyone else, more charms better quality!

I have several charms from Shutterfly that WERE sterling silver for $49.99, now they're a cheap plated material, very junky. It's sad, I logged on today to order 3 more charms, but I'll be getting none now. I had been collecting them for 4 years and was looking forward to starting a bracelet for my daughter to be, but I'll be looking elsewhere.

Complete Garbage! I ordered a Sterling Silver Bracelet in July and it is beautiful! It even says 925 (which means silver) on the back of it. I lOVE IT! I then thought because I love it so, I will buy some for Christmas presents. I didn't pay attention to the "silver plate" statement on the web site now and I ordered them OMG was I shocked when I opened the boxes. First of all they are in little pouches now, all tangled up! and the photos are super light/washed out, not the color of the actual photo. The silver plate is dull and ugly. Very very dissapointed! I am sending these back. I purchase ALOT from Shutterfly, I hope they fix this. I am going to tell them when I email them about my return.

The Photo Jewlery
I love the concept but would order the necklace or the bracelet if I could get more than one charm/pic.

Need more charms per bracelet
I was about to order this when I realized I cannot get two charms on one bracelet. So I canceled. Why don't you offer a multi-charm option or a charm with no bracelet, and I willl atttach it myself?

Received as a gift
I had a baby in October and received this bracelet with his picture on the charm as a Xmas gift from a family member. I absolutely love it and wear it everyday. I just wish you could add more charms...!!!

i ordered the photo bracelet as a Christmas gift for my sister. The photo charm is very nice, but unfortunately i can not say the same about the bracelet itself. the bracelet is very cheap it look like something that you get out of a children's toy department.

I gave my mom this bracelet last year for her birthday and she loves it. She just asked me for 3 more charms for Christmas to include more of her granddaughters. Now I have to tell her it is not possible. Please consider offering them. Great chance for repeat sales!

Loved the bracelet but charm came off ...
I loved the bracelet with only the one charm but then the charm caught on the sleeve of a jacket and it must have fallen off because now I only have the bracelet and no charm ... is there a way to order just the charm without having to reorder the entire bracelet again? Wonderful quality except the fastening should be a bit sturdier.

i like the photo charm, but the chain could be better, especially if you pay full price. the "antiqued" finish makes the chain look dirty and inexpensive. i agree the shutterfly logo on the back has to go. it would be great to have a generic engraving like a heart shape stamped on the back or sans shutterfly logo!

I would have definitely ordered multiple bracelets if it had more charms. My mom would love this for her 10 grand kids and I would love for a memory bracelet where I could put a picture of each of my deceased grandparents. I hope the ability to have multiple charms for the bracelet comes soon.

LOVE this bracelet!
I love this bracelet and I actually love that it's only one charm. I have two children and love stacking my bracelets so I love being able to wear two different bracelets along with my other jewelry. My two favorite things are photos and jewelry so this is a win win in my book! I used very close headshots only on both photos and they turned out fantastic! I would prefer a sturdier clasp but otherwise am very happy and plan on purchasing more.
