Rated 5 out of 5 by sillykiss Very pretty.
After reading some of the other reviews I tried to cancel this order, it was too late in the shipping process. But I am happy with it as the stones are a true red coral, not orange as some reviews had stated. I think the price was fair, as compared to other vendors.
Rated 2 out of 5 by loveszenyatta mine were NOT red but orange - disappointed!!!
I ordered two of these necklaces and both are mostly orange beads - title says red and I wanted red - but the necklace is mostly orange beads and some have hardly any color at all - there are a very few red ones - but I mean very FEW - ugh - not sure if I just got two bad ones, but I was so sad - I sent them both back - it is a heavy necklace - not sure about putting a pendant on it anyway - to me it would not look right - and to double it was too short for me - looked like I was wearing two chokers - because of the thickness of the necklace with 3 coral bead ship strands on each side - but I am a heavier gal and my neck is bigger - so only way to wear it was long with no pendant - and I really don't have much to go with it - could not see spending over 200 for a necklace I would probably wear very very little - and honestly it does look like something you could make yourself - then at least you could buy RED coral pieces - anyway for the high price, orange color and for me, non versatility (if that's a word) - they both had to go back - so sorry if someone gets stuck now with two orange necklaces that I am returning - but I feel your pain.... I wanted red too - and paying the return shipping - ugh - that's a shame too.

This necklace is a beauty. Vibrant red coral beads get your attention but I thing the large, stamped sterling silver beads are what really makes this necklace shine. Wear it long, double it, or hang a pendant from the toggle closure. Four stars because I feel it is a bit pricey but definitely a keeper. I love it.

Over the years I've slowly built a good sized collection of Carolyn's pieces and have several of her beaded necklaces. This necklace BY FAR is the best of the bunch! Every year I choose a "Santa" gift for myself to wrap up and place under the tree. This year I ordered a stunner. I'd initially been put off by the high (to me) price, but when mine arrived I was thrilled with the quality. It's worth every penny. First of all, the silver is very substantial. This is not a dainty or demure necklace. Since I make beaded jewelry, I know how much quality coral costs per 16 inch string, and the coral here is top grade. My necklace isn't fire engine red (natural coral isn't, by the way), but a very deep, rich, bright coral pink that looks light red with a slightly orange tint. The color and tone are perfect for year round wear. It'll be stunning at Christmas & New Years, but also through spring, summer and fall. Honestly, gals, this is red carpet worthy. It can be worn for more formal or dress events as well as with a sweater twin set for work, a tank top and jeans, or crisp cotton blouse and gauzy skirt. Love, love, LOVE.

Mine is true, bright red as shown in the presentation. I too have the turquoise version, and this is just as cool and beautiful! The native pearls are huge and stunning and add the perfect touch to this fun piece. So happy I finally have it!

This is a very nice piece. The stones are different colors of red and reddish orange. I thought it was overpriced, but kept it anyway.
Rated 1 out of 5 by barefootcontessa Necklace mostly 'ORANGE' beads!! :(
Ordered twice and both times my necklaces were full of ORANGE beads. VERY disappointing! Would have loved it, if only it had been as described...RED!!
