J26246 - Joan Rivers Enamel and Crystal Egg Necklace
I HAVE THEM ALL... SADLY JR DON'T MAKE THEM ANY LONGER. GRAB WHILE ITS HEAR.
I HAVE MAYBE 40 OR 50 OF THESE EGGS. THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AND YES THEY ARE VERY HEAVY. LOOKING FOR A WINDOW BOX WITH A GLASS LID TO PUT THEM IN FOR SHOW. WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IS HOW MANY YEARS DID SHE MAKE THE ONES WITH THE DATE OF THE YEAR ON THEM? WHEN DID THEY START AND WHEN DID THEY STOP (IF THEY DID.) THEY ARE NICE TO WEAR ONE OR THREE AT A TIME BUT NOT ALL OF THEM AT ONE TIME.
I had a hard time deciding, but...
Each egg is beautiful - I have my favorites, of course, and the workmanship on the eggs is excellent. But I decided that the cheapness of the chain and the visibility of all those clasps detracted from its value. And as other reviewers have said, the eggs are HEAVY. They each feel like little lead weights. I'm not sure how secure the chain and those clasps are. I'd rather have a better quality open link chain and have the eggs attached by spiral rings (like those on key chains).
This is a pricey piece of jewelry, and for me to spend almost $150 with the shipping, it had to be perfect. I even considered replacing the chain, but didn't want to spend even more money. I'll miss it, but it had to go back.
Joan Rivers does beautiful enamel pieces and I'll keep searching, but I had to let this one go.
Beautiful classic style necklace
I missed out on getting the original egg necklace, but I collected all the egg extender sets offerred on QVC and bought this necklace. I love that you can wear this necklace with any outfit, a pair of gold hoops and gold bangle bracelets or a charm bracelet and be as classic as Jackie O or Audrey Hepburn.
I am grateful I have this one of a kind necklace and that Joan Rivers and company continues to produce quality jewelry that will last a lifetime.
All the eggs in one basket
Purchased the original necklace and many of the charms in the 90's. In fact, I've taken them apart and rearranged them, so I wish Joan would give us a picture of all the original charms and how they looked so I could put mine back to the original. The charms are nicely done. I have some that I have paid many, many times more than for the cost of this necklace. If you like Russian or Eastern European jewelry, you will probably love this.
A little heavy yet had to have!
The eggs are weighty for the chain but after wearing it a couple of times, it seems okay. I had a 1998 egg charm that I added on before wearing which made it just long enough to slip over my head without unfastening anything. This is so cool! Anxious to order other charms to make it uniquely mine!
Love this egg necklace!!!
This is the 2nd egg necklace I own from Joan.The 1st I purchased in 1998 which still looks as beautiful as the day it arrived.I like to wear these on a solid top and it just pops.I also added a 3 charm extension on this and may add more to make it truly unique.My first necklace I wear doubled because I added several extensions to it.I also collect her bees.Keep up the beautiful work - it's pure class just like Joan!
Love, Love, Love It!
I have purchased this necklace... I just love it.. I get many compliments from coworkers.. I have the "original" necklace also ~ and all of the add-a-egg charms. Joan, I have one request though ~ please make another jewelry box to hold this new necklace and the other additions to the necklace.
I Love this necklace, Love, Love, Love
This is the cat's meow. It's a unique & meaningful necklace that is simply beautiful. It's great that we can add on more pieces to make it longer. I have done that but still want more Joan.
This is a treasure you'll never find in other places. More purple, yellow, turq,, and cobalt blue, bright greens, reds more more more please.
Just love what you've allowed us to create here. It will be worn now & always passed down. Thanks for these beauties Joan.
Stunning ! ! !
I have collected the Queen of Romania necklace and charms for quite sometime. I can wrap mine three times and I leave it rather long. I have never worn this necklace that I didn't receive compliments. Each of the eggs are exquisite and people actually stop me to comment. I will say that it does get heavy so be prepared if you start collecting the extenders. I love mine and I love the history behind it. Leave it to Joan - truly a classic.
New to Me
I am a newer customer so I never had the original "egg" necklace. Wish the clasp had a more distinct/larger clasp aside from the ones for each egg. Ladybug is not bright red so colors are subtle. Enjoy the evil eye. Be careful not to open the spring clasp for heart charms when putting necklace on, as they will fall out. For this price we should have gotten a nice storage box!
I love most of JR jewelry but for me this was too heavy. I found it uncomfortable.
