Joan Rivers Classic Textured Bead 44" Necklace
Order the Earnings Instead
Received the earrings and absolutely loved them. Ordered this necklace (in gold and rose) because I was thinking it would be just as wonderful. So very disappointed that it is not the same. The size of the beads on the earrings is perfect. These beads are much, much smaller on the necklace and not at all what I expected. Still on fence as to whether I am keeping or returning. Leaning toward returning as they do not feel worth the price.
Gold Plating Already Wore Off!
I ordered the Rosetone necklace. It was beautiful, until the rose gold plating WORE OFF! I had the necklace for less than two weeks, when it did so. It was claimed (during the Joan Rivers show on QVC) that this necklace was coated with a THICK layer of gold and that the gold would NOT wear off. I'm so disappointed.
This necklace is amazing. I ordered it in the gold. It looks like the real deal .I Think I am going to have to order it in the silver as well .
Joan you make very nice quality jewelry.
Love the sentiment behind the strand as well. Edgar buying something quite similar for Joan many years ago.
Stylish but heavy
Very nice looking necklace, looked great on the host (Lisa). I would love to keep it but mine seems to be very heavy to wear all day at work and I'm not petite. The necklace feels like little gold coated heavy lead beads from China. Too heavy to wear and be comfortable for me. Sorry I cant' wear it and back it goes.
I bought this necklace in the gold tone when it was offered on easy-pay as well as a clearance price. I love it! It is gorgeous against a black dress that I wore today along with some round gold hoop earrings and a couple of Judith Ripka bracelets. And this looked just as gorgeous as my higher-priced gold jewelry. I wore it in a double knot in the center of the necklace, and it looked so chic! It will also look great this winter with a turtleneck sweater. Now I want the silver one! I was more than pleasantly surprised with this one!
I ordered the whole set and sent it back. The bracelets were too big for my wrist and the beads were a lot smaller than what I thought. I had ordered the rose color. The color was very pretty. Just wasn't for me.
Perhaps best QVC jewelry item ever!
I have many jewelry items from QVC, but this gorgeous, hand-knotted bead necklace may be the best of them all! I have the gold, which is a true 18K color. The bead texture makes the smallish beads stand out on my clothing. The weightiness of the beads truly makes this necklace feel real (as in real solid gold). I'm sure the gold necklace will be my absolute favorite, but I went ahead and ordered the silver & rose, too, because of how well-made this necklace is. Thanks so much, Joan, for sharing the design of your original necklace with us!
I missed out on the gold tone of this item sold a few years ago on QVC. I finally managed to get a hold of it in a secondary market. I was thrilled to see QVC offer this necklace in rose tone and white tone. This necklace is beautifully executed...and true to Joan's "classic" mantra. This necklace is well made. There is knotting in between each bead (and there are a lot of small beads...so this means a lot of work). The beads have a beautiful texture...they are substantial, but when worn, do not feel heavy on the neck. I understand Joan did not put a clasp closure in order to keep true to the original design. I prefer clasps, but the necklace easily goes over the neck once or twice (doubled). Joan has brought many nice things...but this necklace is one of my favorites. Bought the matching earrings. Thank you, Joan and happy 80th birthday.
Lovely for any age!
OMG! this is just the most beautiful necklace! I appreciate classic jewelry and this fits the bill. Craftmanship really shows too and the earrings to match as well.. Outdone yourself Joan. Just in love with this... Going to put this one in my "will" as I know it is going to last! Ha! Ha! Oh,I gotta go back and order the silver color....
I bought the rose tone in this as well as the earring set. I love how the beads are hand knotted. It is very versatile. You can double it up or wear it long. Rose tone gold seems to be very popular now and this is an inexpensive way to get in on the trend. There is some weight to this necklace but it does not feel heavy about the neck. The beads are not going to get crushed and mis-shapen. (Remember the add-a-bead necklaces of the 80's that were hollow?)
