Artisan Crafted Sterling Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Necklace
MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT....SENT BACK
The title says it except for the "why". I was hoping this would be a keeper because the design would go with so many things, not just Southwest. Peyton asked that we write to describe the silverwork and here is what I received: a blob of solder on one of the stations that covered some of the silver granules - very noticeable. The larger center station had poorly spaced silver granules, which was also very noticeable. Had the necklace only been 1/2 the price, I would have expected better silverwork, but at this price point I was shocked to say the least. The turquoise wasn't as large as it looked on the presentation, but I could have lived with that. The color of turquoise was a pretty lighter color than the SB stones you see today, and they were well matched to each other, but they weren't the robin egg blue of the older SB stones I have. Sorry for the 1 star, but this was truly a sloppy piece of jewelry. What a shame! QVC Customer Service was great, as always, and asked if I wanted to exchange for another of this necklace, but I didn't want to bother risking getting another dud and the hassle of returning. There needs to be better quality control for sure.
Smaller in person
I fell in love with the design of this necklace when I saw it on TV. Unfortunately, it was much smaller in person. Returned.
