This is the perfect size pendant. I wear it on a 22 inch chain to hang over a scoop or V-neck tee or sweater. The quartz doublet gives the piece depth and the silver frame adds sophistication. The colors work beautifully with everything. I have many of Caroline's enhancers and this is one of my favorites.

Pendant shape and silverwork is beautiful, but unfortunately I got one with a big brown line going through it and over half of the abalone shell is colorless, so I will send it back and give it one more try to get a good one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AliJoi5 I'm loving this piece...
It's different from anything else I have... the shape and design, the abalone doublet, the sterling detail work, etc. Like Jill, I'm really enjoying this enhancer worn on leather cords. It looks so casual and very mystical. I agree with the previous reviewer that abalone is hit or miss. Before CP, I had terrible luck with this stone. This time I was fortunate to receive an enhancer with an interesting stone... my mother commented that it looks like an aurora borealis... a rainbow of soft, undulating pastel colors. And the faceted quartz doublet top does magical things to the abalone. You get a little extra glint. Very pleased with this piece!

If you decide to buy, good luck! It's a lovely piece if you get a 'good one.'
As usual with CP designs, the silverwork is lovely, and the back of the piece is finished and beautiful. I don't have any problems with the snap bail.
This size is wonderful for summer, since it works just fine on dainty chains or cords if you don't feel like wearing beads.
The item photo seems so misleading to me--the color is far too rich and dark for what we actually receive. (And that would be QVC's problem, not Carolyn's.)
I ordered two, hoping one would look like the item photo or video sample.
The first one was pale with a brown blob. The colors do show in the abalone, but they are too pale. All you really see is the brown area. Returned it.
The second one is much better. It's very similar to the sample in the video--pale, with brown, but the rainbow effect does show. I sure wish 'quality control' was better so I didn't have to buy two of them to get a keeper.
I will continue to spend my hard-earned money on CP's jewelry because it is AMERICAN MADE! Worth the investment!

I figured I would be returning mine after reading the other reviews. BUT mine is beautiful! Lots of color, love it!!

I just could not wait to get this enhancer! I must say, I was a little nervous with the previous reviews. So here comes the mailman! The silver work is beautiful. The stone is breathtaking! The colors were vibrant. (yes I said "were") I attempted to put the enhancer on a chain and wouldn't you know it, the clasp would not stay closed! I am so disappointed. I am hoping the replacement is just as beautiful. Wish me luck!

Very bland in color, expected color variation, but not no color!!!! Not worth price!!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by TCB Cracked
Received 6/11/13, but it was cracked so it went back today--next day. I was so disappointed. I do not think Q would have sent it out; It came directly from the vendor. I would have loved it if it had not been cracked. Color was ok.

Mine was a dull gray throughout and nothing like the picture. In sunlight it was clear crystal. I was hoping for a little color. I gave it 2 stars for the graceful silver work, otherwise it would be a zero. Very sad. It's going right back.
