48.00 ct tw Black Spinel Sterling Cross Necklace by American West is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice black spinel, but odd I would not call this a cross. It does resemble a bird. It is meant to rest on your chest. If you wear it up high at your neck, or very long, the "bird" will teeter-totter back & forth-which just looks too odd! I returned it as I could not see myself wearing it that often,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVELY!! After I purchased the long 70+ spinel necklace from jai, I just knew this piece would be awesome on that necklace...and it is. It reminds me of a south western design of a bird...not so much a cross. I wear it on the shorter doubled length of the necklace and let the longer part of the necklace frame the pendant.. looks right at home. Constructed so well and shines along with the spinel necklace. Did not like it on the chain it came with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.5 Stars Only Because of Chain I watched this for months, never intending to buy, but because the shape and shimmer was beautiful. I just didn't think I'd wear it necessarily. Suddenly the sale price became really good and during an AW show I decided to go for it. I see thunderbird, not cross. The oxidized silver, rope design, very slight curve of the bar to rest on your chest, rich, shimmery, weighty beads are spectacular. The chain is too dainty and is better suited for smaller pendants. This looks better on longer, more substantial chains or a short choker, maybe leather or black velvet ribbon! Grand size, love it! Can be edgy, ethnic, sexy, Art Deco, Southwestern, etc. Versatile statement piece. Should come with a better, more proportional chain, I agree with a previous reviewer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't decide I lusted for this piece and finally broke down and purchased. Here's why I'm torn. Pros: - stones sparkle and glimmer - big statement piece, looks larger in person than appears online - different and beautiful - weighty Cons: - needs a more substantial chain or collar - would look better on a heavier gauge, longer chain - 30-36" - teeter totters back and forth from side to side while wearing it - doesn't hang straight - slim chain is out of proportion to the pendant

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GORGEOUS AND UNUSUAL PIECE I have been eyeing this piece for a long time and when the price went down I ordered it. I had a beautiful black spinel necklace from QVC with about 5 or 6 millimeter carved beads and I added this piece and it makes the most beautiful art deco necklace ever. Awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE~! I knew I would love this. It is a bit heavy, and pulls on the side of your neck. The pendant dropped down into my cleavage, so I put a 2" extender on, and its fine now. I ordered the earings too. Cant wait. This is very different, and edgy. After buying from QVC for so long, I look for the gems, the different pieces that are special, and this is one of them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Like It I'm drawn to this piece for some reason. I think it is over priced even at the clearance price. I also think that at this price it should have come in a necklace box rather than tangled up in a small plastic bag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A cross?.... .....it looks more like a bird to me than a cross. I was hoping in person it would look like a cross....perhaps too abstract for my taste.
