This is a very pretty and functional addition to a woman's jewelry collection. It is versatile and can be worn to the office and for date night. If you are allergic to metals like I am it is hard to find pretty pieces that have a striking look. This piece gives you that.
Beautiful and unique
I just received my necklace yesterday in the purple. I love it! I doubled it around my neck and it looks so cool, not like a lot of other necklaces, and lays well on my neck. I will be wearing this necklace a lot, as I like things that are a little interesting and don't look like everything else out there. Will definitely be keeping my eye on this brand for other pieces.
On the fence...
I got this in the carnelian option and while it's very good quality, it's a little difficult to wear. It looks a bit odd if you double the strand to make it short because the clasp competes with the pendant. But if you wear it long, it takes the focus off of the pendant as well. Also, carnelian is soooooo difficult to get a consistent color match. I love carnelian in the red hues. These carnelian beads were more brown. The pendant is beautiful. I just don't know that it works with the leather cord. If I keep it I'll probably wind up taking it off the cord and putting it on another cord or chain.
Love, love, love it. Beautiful design and very versatile. You can wear it short or long. It is really different than most of the things that are out there. I will definitely wear this a lot.
I purchased the Gray Agate going by the photo that is on the website and the stones look totally different than the picture. I like the design but not what I was expecting. Still deciding if I like it or not.
I agree with the previous review. I did like this alone (nude) with no top! The minute I put on a top the necklace looked too buiky. I felt the rope was too thick. Would have looked better if it was a thinner cord. Maybe a thinner leather. Smaller magnetic finding. Agates were beautiful - but didn't "swing." Just too gaudy looking with any top I put on. Good possibility with a little tweek it would be a classic...just not now :( p.s. I got the purple
The concept is nice. The multi-strand part is like a heavy cotton cord, so it's stiff. I ordered the ameythst and the beads were so dark they're almost black. If this was done as an enhancer then the pendant part would have swung freely on the cords. However, the pendant is attached to two sets of cords by two different bales. Consequently, the pendant does not move when your body moves and does not hang properly in the center of the cord. You also cannot remove the pendant from the cords. For the look, half the price would have been enough. Back to QVC and the designer should take it back to the "drawing table."
Unique and Different!
This piece is so unique! I ordered it as soon as I saw it on the Italy show. I got the Carnelian. The beads are nice, perfect size. Good quailty and a very updated cord! You can move the beads to the back and clip on another enhancer. I do wish the beads came off to utilize other enhancers, but at least it moves and works. LOVE!.
Ordered the in Carnelian as soon as it came on the air in Italy. It is a lovely, fun, and very unique piece if jewelry. The beads are dark, rich red, and the cord is sturdy and well made. I think I have to go back for another color now that I have seen this one in person. Wearing it tonight to a casual saturday night dinner out :)
