JAI John Hardy Sterling Slide Leather & Gemstone Bead Necklace
I usually am not a short necklace person but I got this because I love my other JAI pieces and it didn't disappoint. I got the all black beads and love to wear them together and with a longer chain too. Vesritle, beautiful, a good way to try the line. Love my silver.
Purchased the Red Agate
I love this necklace combination and wear it often; separately and together. The sterling silver slide fits nicely over both the leather necklace and my red agate necklace. I find that the necklace, regardless of which one has the slide, stays straight on my neck...it doesn't move around as another reviewer has suggested. I also do not find the clasps to be too fragile. I have several other John Hardy pieces and love them all.
Slide isn't removable
While I love the Jai John Hardy line I was disappointed with this purchase. It is a nice concept and I loved the look but found the slide was not removable and therefore not interchangeable to wear on other necklaces including the beaded one. To me, the beaded necklace served no purpose. In addition, the clasps were tarnished. I could have used a silver polishing cloth but the clasps seemed fragile and cheaply made so was afraid they would break. Come on now, a necklace this expensive should at least have a decent clasp! Also, the slide did not stay in place and I would no sooner straighten than it would be off centered again with the back of the necklace in front. This just wasn't for me because of too many negatives. When it was first put on and straight, which was for a very short time, I loved the look. . .
This was a great buy. You get 3 pieces that you can interchange. Plus you can use either necklace for any other enhancer you might have. I also picked up a JAI cross enhancer and I have used it with the onyx beads. Just outstanding, some of my favorite pieces. The quality is top notch.
This is the second order of this necklace..the first one had a broken clasp and was very tarnished and the one I got yesterday is still tarnished..and looks like it has been hanging around qvc for ages...so i got the Judith Ripka one...I have Michael Dawkins rings and they are beautiful...I have just started to wear silver..So very disappointed with Jai...
Pretty but overpriced
I have mixed feelings about this necklace. The fit is fine. Unlike other reviewers, I don't find the beaded necklace too short. And I haven't tried the slide on the red agate beads--I would never wear the slide on them. I love the beads, but am on the fence about the slide. It came tarnished and while pretty, it's not terribly special like other JH pendants I have. I do like the leather cord, though. My biggest hesitation is the price. Even at the clearance price and on easy pay, $169 w/S&H and tax is high for this item. Not sure but will likely return.
So Chic, JAI Slide Necklace
I have several pieces of JAI John Hardy jewelry, and I love them all. I purchased the Slide Necklace with the Green Agate beads. It is stunning and can be worn with so many things. I have JAI earrings, a beautiful Lemon Citrine Ring, a domed ring sprinkled with natural colored stones on the top and I own several cuffs of different weights and embellishments. I know there are many wonderful jewelry designers at QVC. The really interesting thing about JAI is that it looks great on its own and mixes in so well with other pieces. If you have some pieces of jewelry that you're not really wearing, add some JAI to those pieces. I think you'll be surprised at how current it makes you feel. Scott, keep the jewelry coming!
I thought I'd take a chance on this necklace, even though the reviews weren't stellar ... but I should have listened. The red agate was a brownish, orange and so tightly strung it wouldn't lay correctly around my neck. The slide was beautiful, but the leather cord was more of a thin choker. Could've been really beautiful!!! :(
I found the sterling slide and the necklaces pretty and trendy. This is a keeper for me.
So VERY Disappointed
I couldn't wait to get this as I have several John Hardy couture pieces and thought it would work great with them. I was so very disappointed when I opened the package! The chain and clasp on the leather cord were so tarnished they were black. I got out a silver cloth and polished it. I wore the slide on the leather cord one day the next day I tried to put it on the onyx beads and it wouldn't fit over the end! Needless to say it's being returned. Once again I'm paying for postage and getting NOTHING!!! I will seriously think about any future orders, the return policy is great but the quality of he products isn't so the shipping gets expensive!!!
I had wanted this ever since the first time I saw it. When it went on clearance, I decided to treat myself. When I saw it, I was not really impressed, and then I wore it! It is so beautiful, and ads the finishing touch to the JAI rings I wear almost daily. My only problem is that I wear it at 16" and the extender keeps coming around to the front. Thus the 4 star rating.
I was looking for a quality leather cord. This one fit the bill. While I agree it was originally too expensive for me, the clearance price and easy pay were perfect! I had no problem with the slide fitting as others did. I was looking for a cord to wear with other enhancers that I own, especially my Carolyn Pollack silver and abalone butterfly. It is exactly what I was looking for and is very versatile. I also love the green agate necklace and slide, and the extenders are of excellent quality which is not always the case.
