Review of Hermes Cuffs from Jacky
Hi everyone, I bought a couple of Hermes cuffs from Jacky recently and I'm here to post a review. I hope this will help those who're interested in getting Hermes cuffs to make the right decision.

I bought the Hermes CDC cuff in Grey leather with Silver HW and Kelly Dog bracelet in Black leather with Gold HW.

Let's look at the good:

1. Leather on both cuffs is well-stitched and well made. No flaws to be detected.

2. Hardware on both cuffs is solid and looks nice.

Now, for the bad:

1. The catch on the CDC cuff doesn't slide in smoothly. As you can see in my pic, I have locked it into the 4th closure (I have small wrists). I have a hard time sliding in the catch to lock the cuff in place. I also have a hard time sliding it out to remove the bracelet.

2. The round bull-ring on the CDC cuff is not smoothly made. It also looks slightly less shiny compared to the rest of the hardware.

3. The hardware on the Kelly Dog bracelet came with a tiny scratch to it, but it's not too bad.

4. I have small wrists, so the Kelly Dog bracelet only fits well on the 3rd closure for me. Ideally, I feel that the bracelet will look nicer if it is locked on the 2nd (middle) closure.

I have tried on the authentic Hermes CDC cuff before, so I can safely say that Jacky's CDC cuff is a good purchase, especially when it is only a tiny fraction of what the auth will cost.

However, please note that the Hermes CDC cuff is pretty heavy, so in terms of weight, I definitely prefer the Kelly Dog bracelet (so much lighter!). Aesthetically speaking, of course the CDC cuff still wins hands down.

All in all, I am happy with my purchases. I know I pointed out more flaws than the good points, but I tend to be thorough and critical in my reviews. I will be buying another Hermes CDC cuff from Jacky, but in black crocodile leather with gold hw.

Got the CDC from Jacky--it's great! I've had it for about a month, and so far it's worn really well. It was a silver one, so I don't know anything about the durability of the gold tone ones. The leather was really nice and supple, but not flimsy.

Thanks for comparing it to the auth, Xooey. I was curious, having never seen the real deal.

xooey - Thanks for the review. I`ve wanted the CDC for a while but didn`t know if it was close enough to the auth. Now I can get it.

HOWEVER, if worn tightly around the neck it could pass from a distance. Ive spotted several fakes of the brown version from afar and it is very obviously fake from the shade of color - the reps are lighter in color. Just sharing my two cents about these scarves from the level of interest - of course, I could be proved wrong and would be delighted to nab a different color! My primary advice would be to steer clear of brown LV leopard scarves and choose one of the limited edition colors which are scarce and more difficult to compare.
thank you so much for your feedback on the LV leopard scarf.

I came into this thread with the purpose of finding review on this scarf, your review has been helpful. ))




on another separate note, I would like to add that I also own a CDC that came from JACKY. Mine is the blak croc with gold hardware. My feedback echoes xooey - I am satisfied with the quality. Only thing was the round bullsring that wasnt made so nicely (not a perfect round circle). But such flaw is only noticeable if the other person wanted to scrutinise my bracelet. The hardware is vey sturdy/solid. Totally worth every penny. I wished jacky made them in more colors.

xooey thanks for the review. I always like it when I see live pictures of these things. The pics on the websites are so bad sometimes.

review of accessories from taobao
I bought 3 Juicy Couture charms, 2 Vivienne Westwood chokers and a Vivienne Westwood ring from a taobao shop called Young Sweet Space. I can't comment on the international shipping since this was purchased through a huge group order so shipping costs are very low per person.

I paid a total of 175 CNY(Chinese Renmimbi) (+ 10CNY for shipping to agent) for 6 items. That's about 27 USD for the items.


Items are individually packed by the seller.



group shot of every thing I bought.



The carousel cost 24CNY each and the pudding cost 25CNY. There is a slight tarnish one of the jump rings on the carousel. Since I have spare jump rings at home, I can easily change it. The surface of the clasps are slightly uneven. Besides that, the quality is very good for something so cheap.



Vivienne Westwood armour ring which cost 26 CNY. The edges of the ring are very smooth. The bottom part of the ring comes with a adjustable back.





Vivienne Westwood 3 Row Bas Relief Pearl Choker. 50CNY. The only tarnish I found is at the clasp. Its sits oddly on a flat surface but it fits perfectly when worn.




Vivienne Westwood Mini Bas Relief Pearl Choker. 36CNY

Overall the quality is great for replicas that cost so low. I haven't worn them longer than a minute so I wouldn't know how the quality will hold up in time.
