Rated 4 out of 5 by Jocce Beautiful, versatile chain, w/ unique pendant
I have this item in both the silver and gold, and have had them since they were initially presented on QVC quite some time ago. The only thing I do not like about the piece is that the pendant sounds "tinny" to me, but other than that, wow!, have I gottten my money's worth out of wearing the very sparkly, unique chains w/ many other pendants and enhancers.
The chains are very impressive, and I can speak to the fact that they have held up well and are very versatile. The fact that black is blended in w/ the gold, as well as black blended in w/ the silver version, makes the chain much more interesting and wearable.
I have not worn the actual pendants nearly as much, but, the appearance of the fan is also unique and beautiful. Having black in the pendants adds a lot of versatility, interest, and wearability....the Italian designers were ahead of the trend in incorporating the black details in this necklace.

I bought this piece in gold and am happy with it , the problem with the clasp is easily fixed by attaching a magnetic clasp to the piece , easy on and off with no clasp problem, the piece does not lay flat because of its shape but is very rich looking. I gave it a four because it does not lay flat, the chain is very nice and can be used with other pieces as well.

When I first saw this, Lisa was presenting it at full price. I just fell in love, but waited. Now, here it is at almost half price, and I ordered both colorways, thinking I would return one. Well, not so sure that's going to happen! They are one more beautiful than the other, in turn. Agree that the chains are nice alone, and I have placed both pendants on a black spinel necklace - so sensational! The finish work is totally believeable to me, the design when worn correctly with the right side out is flawless and stunning, and personally I don't hear noise from my necklace. Both pendants look great with real gold, either yellow or black, and diamonds, either black or white.

I was pleasantly pleased when I received the Arte D'Argento Sterling Bead Wrapped Fan Pendant. It is unique in style and goes beautifully with my wardrobe. This was a great purchase and I would recommend as a great buy. Love it!

I am very happy with this. Looks just like solid 14K and the beading looks like black
diamonds. Got the gold/black. I normally can spot vermeil easily, but not with this. Very stylish and flattering on the neck. Get compliments everytime I wear it. Love the black and gold chains together...different.

I really am confused w/all the negative reviews. That is why I decided to give credit to when credit is well deserved w/this beautiful piece of art. Women quit your pettiness. Just appreciate the unique art. Never have a problem w/clasp or noise please get over it & appreciate. Whenever I wear this piece I always receive compliments.
Rated 4 out of 5 by GOTTALUVQVC SPECTACULAR!!!
I have to say that normally I agree with the other reveiwers, because when something is bad, it is usually universally bad, but in this case, I adore this necklace. I think it is really beautiful. The two tone chain sparkles away and the chocolate beads also sparkle and shine from a distance. Its so unique and so italian. Also the pendant can be taken off and then you have these beautiful chains that also sparkle from miles away. I will agree it makes a noice at times when you are walking, but I just don't care, the necklace is stunning, it really is. In some ways I think the chains were worth the price of admission. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a very italian, unique, stunning piece of jewelry.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JMBmich Uniquely Stunning
Yes, this does have a tinny sound. Yes, I did have trouble with the clasp BUT.....
This design is so unique and stunning that I decided to focus on the beauty of the piece instead of the tinny sound and, even though I did initially struggle with the clasp, I am now able to easily put it into the openings in the extender. In fact, I wore this piece to my Italian language class this evening and afterwards my instructor ( a very Italian woman) said that she noticed it immediately and figured that it was probably an Itallian piece. She thought that it was absolutely beautiful. My 12 year old daughter even commented on it. For me it's a keeper.
Even though I am pleased with this item the negative comments from others would probably prevent me from recommending it or gifting it.
Rated 2 out of 5 by ovette at half the price ---- maybe ....
This is the second highly-tauted "Italian" piece I've been disappointed in. 1. Comes in a plastic baggie inside a QVC pouch and box. Tacky for a gift. 2. I ordered both colors, waited forever and the black one has stones missing on the back. 3. The front of both pieces is nice, but on the back it's all out of whack so you can't wear it but one way, plus the electroplating leaves 2 holes in the piece, so what's the point of 'decorating" the back? Just spend more money on presentation and the clasp, which is utterly ridiculous. You would need the tiniest hands to work it. 5. The tinny sound is pretty irritating and does alarm the world to "cheapness". The chains are lovely but not worth the price and that's what you're paying for -- the "bauble" on the end of them is just OK. I even wore the gold one (the nicer) out to lunch with girls and not one compliment. That's a bad sign! At half the price MAYBE -- just for the chains and the uniqueness, but at this price they go back pronto.

This is a disappointment!! It is paper mache or something and the clasp is horrid. Not good for this company. I am very surprised, but I guess once in awhile there is a dud. Oh well. I still love arte d'argento. They were trying something different...................
Rated 2 out of 5 by MADWEST Noisy disapointment
I waited for well over a month for this pendant. It is a beautiful pendant, but I could not even wear it out of the house because of the tiney hollow sound is really annoying. So back in the mail it goes.
