Aquamarine Bead 40" Necklace with Sterling Clasp
This necklace is exquisite!! Lovely varying shades of the aquamarine beads and nuggets! I love wearing this necklace!
I saw these on air and couldnt wait to receive them. They were unimpressive in person.. The round/barrel beads were a beautiful blue, but the nuggets were way off in color (green and clear) and very jagged and really varied in size. They made the necklace look unbalanced and inexpensive or fake(and this necklace was over $100 with shipping, etc--so you expect it to be beautiful for an opaque gemstone).. I understand a natural bead neckalce will have variations in color, but my necklace was not matched well at all. The greens and blues were haphazardly placed and the nuggets looked odd. Unfortunately, the weird nuggets fell right at the bottom when you doubled the necklace and put the clasp in the back.... Also, I am very light/pale in complexion; I suspect they would look nicer with a tan. Not for me, but some may like the complete randomness of the mix. I do love milky aqua and will keep my eyes out for another purchase.
This Aquamarine necklace casts such a calmness in it's color. According to legend, it has it's origin in the treasure chest of the Mermaids. I love the mixture of nuggets,beads, and color. A real value as well, as these are genuine stones. I will enjoy wearing this longer and quite fashinable 40 in length.
I purchased this back in March 2012. My necklace doesn's exactly look like the photo -- I think maybe the some of the stones are lighter? Anyway, all together, it's a lovely blue-green seawater color, like the sky, like the ocean, and I've worn it quite often. It makes me happy.
The color of these beads is breathtaking. They will go well with many colors. The length allows doubling with ease. I like that the stones are individually knotted. Overall, the necklace is well made.
