18" Graduated Rope Necklace 14K Gold 2.6 grams
Not at all QVC quality!
I ordered this necklace in the 14k white gold. It came today, and I opened it only to be disappointed. Yes, I knew it was 2.6 grams, so I did expect it to be lightweight, but...
truly it looked like cheap pot-metal! Had no shine, and even showed signs of a "brassy" color on the largest section. I repacked it and gave it back to the mailman to return it. In no way is this a $200 necklace! I am really thinking hard about buying my jewelry from QVC again. It cost too much to return it when it isn't even worth wearing for a day! Come on QVC,... where's all that quality you used to brag about? Certainly isn't in this piece!
Great Everyday Necklace
I ordered both colors and am very satisfied with them. They are not heavyweights but you know at 2.6 grams it is not going to be a heavy piece. As for the issue with the center being lopsided, I have not had that issue. I have never had a necklace that didn't shift at one time or another and you find that the chain fastener has rotated to the side or the front next to a pendant. Nice to wear layered or as a simple everyday gold piece. Take a chance - either color sparkles.
I am very pleased with this purchase. I was concerned when I read the reviews about this piece being off-center. I have not had any problems with that. It is beautiful and a large gold presence for the price. I am replacing some pieces of gold that were stolen -- particularly a Byzantine. Prices have risen so much that I can't really replace my Byzantine. This rope compares favorably to that piece and is a good value for me. I am very happy.
Bella catena d'oro!!!
I got this in the 18 in. length, it is beautiful!! It arrived yesterday, I put it on as soon as I got it, and haven't taken it off. I haven't had any problems with it moving like others have, even with sleeping w/it on. Got this on the 5EZ pay and free S&H. Otherwise wouldn't have been able to get it. Now I want the 20in. It is up there $$. But the workmanship on it is excellent. Well worth it to me!!
Happy I Read the Reviews-Looks Lopsided
Thought it was me - every time I looked in the mirror this necklace was lopsided. I kept fixing it, etc. Pretty necklace - but driving me crazy. Sad to send it back.
This is dainty but lovely. If you are looking for a big heavy peice this is not it. Got the white gold and goes with sterling and steel.Wear it often.
I purchased this for my mother and when it came, I wanted to keep it for myself. It is very pretty on her and I am considering one for myself. It does look substantial and heavy in weight. It is worth every dollar spent.
Happy with this
Just throw and go jewelery. Goes with everything, really shows up on the neck, lightweight so perfect for summer. I will get a lot of wear out of this. Yes it gets off center some but not so much enough to be sending back. I will be taking a closer look at this line from Peru.
Mine went back
I ordered the 18" yellow gold and it is well made and debated about sending it back. I finally did because, as another review stated, everytime I looked at it in the mirror it was off to the side. I don't want to wear it looking that way all the time. Also, for me it felt too light. I was aware of the amount of gold, but got it thinking it was a good price and I liked the graduated design of the rope. Not completely loving it, so it did go back.
Outstanding Value and Beauty
I prefer and consider gold not only for its aesthetic beauty, but as an investment as well, I took advantage of the "One Time Only" price and am happy that I did!
As another reviewer mentioned, it is lightweight, but the 2.6 grams of gold (significant) and the superb crafsmanship present a bargain at this price point.
In addition, the necklace is a stunner. It appears heavier than it is yet is so comfortable around the neck. I chose the 18 inch in yellow gold to add some sparkle at the neckline. I dress conservatively, but enjoy just a touch of everyday elegance and this is indeed it!
it;s going back
Got this yesterday and wore it today. The wide part of the rope design kept moving to the side as I moved thru the day. Every time I looked in the mirror, it was dipsy-doodle. I don't want to have to fiddle with my jewelry and keep readjusting it thru the day. So, it's already packed and ready to go back.
This necklace is different, well-made, and a great addition to a gold collection. Very nice value as well.
