“Mine just came, and I’m gobsmacked by how gorgeous it is!

Even better than you’d think from the pictures.

It’s so light, elegant, and beautifully crafted. Easy clasp, and so well made and well fitting.

I love that it is like Jane Austen’s, but it is simply lovely in its own right.” –Diana Birchall

Easy clasp, and so well made and well fitting. I love that it is like Jane Austen’s, but it is simply lovely in its own right. I’ve put pictures on Facebook and will spread the word!

      Diana, may we use your review in our ad? May we include your nane?

    Yes, indeed you may use anything I say! I really love the bracelet; it is “so very airy”, I have forgotten I’m wearing it – until I glance at my wrist and see the exquisite lacey blues. And I smile when I think how full of history, and the idea of Jane Austen, it is.

    Now, may I ask a question? I have never read anything about the origins of the original, either how Jane Austen acquired it, or where it is thought to have been made and purchased. Perhaps nothing is known, but has anything been speculated by experts? Is it conjectured to be another gift (like the topaz crosses) from a brother? The design looks slightly Indian to me; is it? And who did Cassandra leave it to? I realize I’m being very relentless in my questions, and perhaps should write to Chawton directly. Thanks for your patience, and for any information you may have!

    I’ve been meaning to research that more. Contacting Chawton is exactly the thing to do. My assumption has been that it was from one of her brothers. I also don’t know whether the original was glass or turquoise. Please let us know what you find out; or if I get there first, I’ll definitely post it on the website. Thanks for asking! I’m so glad you enjoy it. We have a few more, so pass on the word…

    I did contact Chawton, and received the reply that very little is known about the bracelet. It descended in the family from the James Austen branch, and is known to have belonged to Jane, but that is all. I’m going to keep sleuthing, though – maybe some of the family have some “tradition” going on!

    Thanks for the sleuthing!

    Hello. This. Is. Gorgeous! Where did you manage to find that clasp which is close to the original?

      Yes, you can order them through us. Is the link not working? They take about two weeks to arrive right now. They are soooooo comfortable!

    I am a JASNA member and I live in Toronto Canada, just over the border from Buffalo. I have wanted a Jane Austen replica bracelet for a very long time. No one else seems to have them but you, not even the Jane Austen Gift Shop in Bath, who used to sell them. Is there any way I could buy one of the replica bracelets from you? Or do you know of another source?
