I really love the silver work on this and it's a really nice piece. However, the colors of the cabochons are just not that amazing - they are pretty but for this price point - I was expecting more. Also, I am afraid that the amethyst beads with scatter everywhere if I happen to break this strand as it doesn't seem all that study-strung to me. So unfortunately, I will be returning my necklace. I just couldn't justify the price.

The necklace arrived with one of the amethyst cabochons missing. The fluorite stones were difficult to see the color markings on them unless you held the necklace up to the light.....too bad because I really loved this necklace when I saw it on TV.....alas back it went.
Rated 3 out of 5 by LOVES QUALITY FLUORITE
Fluorite, on the Mohrs scale is a 4, meaning it is an extremely soft mineral. It may BREAK if dropped on a hard surface. It may even melt at low everyday temperatures like in luggage on an airplane! The fluorite on this piece is pretty, but demands nothing more than a glance. Due to the drop of the middle fluorite being so small, the necklace seems insignificant. There are several outfits with which this would look good, but I am trying to make up my mind if this necklace is the least bit stunning. I must admit that I have way too much jewelry already....WAY too much! The earrings which were made to match this necklace arrived a couple of days before the necklace and were dropped off at USPS for a quick trip back to QVC before the necklace even arrived. They were very dainty and I like my jewelry to show! Though written up that they were 1/2 inch wide, there was a lot of open air between the stones. This necklace......would I ever run to put it on? No. I'll look at it again.....it is hardly a step above "costume jewelry," and will probably go back. And although it was not expensive as far as jewelry is concerned, I would have expected more color in the fluorite and more "show" for the money. Woops..... accidentally hit "grandparents" as for whom this would be a good gift....good as any of the choices as it made me leave something once I goofed!
