Bauble Bar Twitter Plate Necklace

My very first Bauble Bar purchase was the personalized Twitter plate necklace. It is a necklace that has your custom twitter handle on it. Just like the name plate necklaces, but with the @symbol in front.  Which really seems to be an overall social media plate now. But I just thought it was such a great way to get the Cult Nails name out there while I am out an about, or at least get the conversation started. I suppose I could have gone for the version without the @ and I debated for a bit, but in the end I decided I wanted the one with the @ in front. It just seemed a bit more eye catching to me.

Bauble Bar describes the name plate as follows:



Twitter-Plate (Delivery: 5 Weeks from Date of Purchase)

$88.00
A classic name-plate pendant features a new pop culture twist.  This delicately scripted necklace is a #must-have for any modern-day social media maven.  Our customizable pendants let you select chain length, and metal color, so you can be sure this personal piece will be made just for you. Please note that we cannot include hyphens in nameplates, but can include a second capitalized letter.


The nameplate measures 0.5" in height.

Materials: 14kt Gold-Plated Sterling Silver, 14kt Rose Gold-Plated Sterling Silver, Sterling Silver
Estimated Ship Date: This item is handmade to order and takes approximately five weeks to ship. This item is final sale only.



My Bauble Bar Twitter Plate Necklace and free earrings as an apology for my wait thanks to their amazing customer service! Although I only got to enjoy the earrings for this photo. Kat quickly snatched them up and claimed them as hers!
I'm extremely happy with my necklace, I couldn't wait to put it on when it arrived. But, I ordered my name plate 7 1/2 weeks ago and it finally arrived today. I emailed Bauble Bar to find out about the status last week though. I received an email back fairly quickly, they let me know the necklaces take 5 weeks to make and mine had arrived to them just that day and they would send an extra goody for my wait. Which is awfully nice, but my thought was that they should update their site and perhaps state an estimated ship date of 8-10 weeks, rather than the 5 weeks they show. I have ordered custom items before and they usually all state 8 - 10 weeks. But if you tell me 5 weeks, then I am expecting 5 weeks. A quick look at their Facebook page shows that there were others worried about the wait as well. Minor detail? Maybe? But if anyone is looking at ordering one, I thought I would put it out there so you are not freaking out at week 7. 

I do want to mention that I have ordered several items from Bauble Bar since ordering this item and each time they are quick to ship,  they meet my expectations and their customer service has been amazing. I love when a company stands behind their products and service. They really deliver. So the wait on this product is not enough to deter me 
from ordering again, rather more of a hitch on the wording on their site in my opinion. I think if I were to order a custom item from them again I would call to confirm the accurate wait time. I just think if I ordered something like this for a gift, there is a big difference between 5 weeks and 7 1/2 and it just may be too late. Otherwise I will stick with their non custom items.

So what do you think about the Twitter-Plate Necklace? Do you think I should have gone 
with the one that is just a regular name plate?

  2. I LOVE this!!! Really, really cool. Craptastic about the wait, but I hear you- if it's a great item and they actually stated the correct wait time- I'm game. It goes so great with your hair and those earrings you are wearing rock.

    PS I tried emailing you a few times over the past 2 weeks but never heard back- do you know if you got them? (I'm so annoying! Srry;-)

    1. Hmm an email with your name doesn't ring a bell and we usually answer within a day or two. Send it to me directly at maria@cultnails.com!

  5. I think it's a great modern twist you ordered it with the @ in front of the name, and will also draw more attention to it so more promotion :).
