Rated 5 out of 5 by nikki8 Happy Purchase........
I wrote "happy purchase", because I have ordered jewelry from, the Joan Rivers Company before and I have been disappointed, so I am so happy to say not this time! This is very well made and the versatility of the piece is such a nice option because it looks good long as it is intended but also wears well shorter and does not chock one's neck. The stone does change from green to blue and the metal is a burnished gold, making it appear pricey. I had been looking for a piece as this for some time with a tassel and when I saw it on Jane Brown, I went investigating and found it was a Joan Rivers' necklace so I thought I would order it and take the chance, and I am so glad I did! David, this is a WINNER, thank you very much!

I'm a 'frequent buyer' on QVC, and particularly love Joan Rivers items. In fact, my very first purchase that resulted in my being passionately engaged with both Joan and QVC was a Joan pin a long time ago. I just received this item, and will likely keep it (via exchange) but this one JR purchase is the only one that I've ever had an issue with. Similar to another reviewer, I found that the metal in the chain was both rough due to peeling gold-colored metal overlay and not the kind of quality I have come to admire in the Joan line. The sharper edges of a couple of the rings (peeling and separation) tore up a section of a delicate fabric tank - so lesson learned there. I will be more careful about any metal jewelry when I wear fine knit. However, I wouldn't have expected that. To be fair, however, you get what you pay for and we've come to expect fine quality from JR at affordable prices. The weight is quite good and the design is wonderful for sure. In sum, I'll probably take my chances on an exchange and hope for love again with the replacement.

I'd been eyeing this necklace for months -- saw it often on the models and I love long necklaces. I was lucky to find it äs is and jumped on buying it. It is absolutely stunning -- can't see one problem with it. It is my first Joan Rivers piece of jewelry and find the construction, size and weight of it perfect for me and to be warn all year long. The tassel is weighty and holds the necklace down -- the drop is longer than I expected as well as the green stone and crystal circle. I would love to see more similar necklaces - long, bold, yet simple. I am not eyeing other Joan Rivers statement necklaces -- but I need to find some chain extenders (a 18" necklace is too short for my non-existent neck). Thank you David! Would you please consider offering separate chain extenders for those of us with shorter necks?

Wow - gorgeous necklace. The stones are beautiful. Love the go-with-everything green stone. Also love that you can wear it shorter and longer. The chain and tassel are much more substantial/heavier than I expected - this will look especially great with sweaters, sweater dresses, tunic tops, etc. this fall and winter. I love it. And I just love having another of Joan's pieces. Miss her.

Just received this necklace today and the "gem" had fallen out of its casing. That, plus the fact that there's no way this is worth $88.50 means it's going back ASAP.

This necklace is stunning. The materials, the length, the weight, the tassels are all a great combination. I am fond of green so the "gem" color is a plus for me. I like to wear it full length.
The only reason I gave this less than 5 stars is because there are several jump rings in the piece that need to be more tightly closed. If you have jewelry making tools, this can be easily done - if not, try a bead store to see if they will do this for you.
Overall a handsome, striking piece that looks like it is more expensive than it is.
