Amazing, love love love!

2/15/2016 by Julie

I am a busy mom of now 2 kids, when I was asked what for Christmas when I was 9 months pregnant, this is all I wanted. My mom got it for me, I was thrilled! Helped me look pulled together at delivery. I got so many compliments and my bff loved it so much I got her one for her birthday. We are both busy working moms and can't be happier with them. Amazing product!

Loves It!

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my niece and she loves it. I bought a lot of hair ties to go with it. Co-workers were wondering how her bracelet always coordinated with her outfit.

Great purchase

Bought this as a gift for my daughter. As a professional women it was not always the best accessory to have a hair tie on her wrist. This bracelet makes it a fashionable and beautiful accessory. She has had many, many compliments and requests on where it came from. She is, of course, telling everyone where they can get one. I had ordered the silver one first, then bought another in the gold. She loves both.
Well worth the cost as the bracelet is made well and holds up to daily wear. Very satisfied and will be purchasing more in the future as gifts.

I am so mad at myself for not coming with a brilliant product. I bought one for every female on my Christmas list and they absolutely love it.

Functional, clever and sharp looking

Purchased three for 2015 Christmas gifts and they all got "wow" reviews. My daughter has a small wrist so hers has a tendency to slip off without the band on but she loves it. The company does make a smaller size but they were all sold out in every size and only The Grommet had inventory and were able to deliver within three days of Christmas. Way to go Grommet! If the Grommet offers the sterling version in the smaller size I may surprise my daughter on her birthday and take her old one! :)

The bittersweet Story

Your wrist can hold elastics. But this is better.

Flexible Fashion

Want to put your hair in a ponytail on a moment’s notice? Then you probably wear a hair elastic on your wrist day after day (like about half the women at our office). It’s practical but not very sophisticated, and it leaves dents on your wrist.

bittersweet by Maria Shireen® makes sleek hair tie bracelets out of stainless steel. Slip the bracelet on, then the elastic over to rest in the groove. The metallic designs look at home from the office to running errands to a night out.

The story behind the bittersweet is super sweet. Shireen Maria Thor and her husband, Arni, are both engineers. One
Christmas, Arni created a metal bracelet holder for Shireen’s elastics. He engraved her name in Persian (her mom’s native language). But because Persian reads right to left, it said Maria Shireen—which translates to bittersweet.

Shireen happily donned her bracelet out and about, and women kept asking where she got it. The couple knew they were on to something, and the two engineers became entrepreneurs.

Each bittersweet bracelet holds one thicker elastic or a few smaller ones. Now you can be prepared to pull your hair (or your kids’ hair) back while looking put together.
