American West Bold Lapis Sterling/Brass Statement Necklace
Wow Wow Wow!
This is just exquisite!!! I am so happy I purchased this! Each birthday each of my three collies "buy me something" for my birthday! Well they "chose" well this year a real four paws up winner! They got me the necklace, earrings and bracelet!
What more could I ask for!
This piece is much larger than it looks. The lapis pieces are large and the quality is fine. With the brass around the leaves it sets off the blue. I don't think you will be disappointed seeing the price is very reasonable compared to going out to sante fe to purchase it.
Perfect in every way. Stone quality excellent as well as the workmanship. Investment piece but the "wow factor" is worth the price. We need matching earrings QVC.
Wonderful lapis stones, terrific silver and brass work, and nice weight. What else could you ask? This is a keeper. Thanks to all the artists!!!!!!
I own many, many beautiful CP pieces as a long-time collector, so I'm spoiled and it takes a lot to impress me these days! But I literally gasped when I first laid eyes on this necklace in person. My initial reaction when I put it on was that I looked like an Egyptian goddess (well, the necklace looks fit for one anyway). ;o) You have to wear your hair up with this one ladies because this work of art deserves to be admired from all angles! I'll start with the lapis stones... I have never personally seen this fine a quality lapis in-hand. It is a top, even, rich ultramarine blue with the most gorgeous star dust speckling of golden pyrite. There is no white (calcite) mottling anywhere to be found. It really does look like a clear Arabian night sky... STUNNING! On to the metalwork... The necklace is not quite as weighty as I was expecting. But I don't say that as a criticism. Since I was afraid it might be too cumbersome on, that suits my tastes just fine... and there's still a lot of bold necklace here. It's worth every penny... AND it lays perfectly and comfortably on the neck! The sterling is beautifully (and intricately) worked, and the brass feathers are a clever compliment to the pyrite in the stones. The removable extender is an added bonus. I will definitely be wearing this one short and long (and pretty much any chance I get!). Absolutely thrilled with this piece... and you will be too CP sisters! WE LOVE YOU CAROLYN!!! :oD
