Linea by Louis Dell'Olio 61" Colorful Station Necklace
So GLAD this was REordered
I didn't think I would get it, because it sold out, at least once to my knowledge. But once I receieved it , it was obvious why. It is simply stunning and the picture shown here does not do it justice.. In terms of color: delicious shades of ruby, amythyst, citrine, sapphire and emerald, to name a few. I'm planning to wear it with something specific but any outfit can be completed with this piece. In terms of detail: there is no end to it. Each bead is uniquely carved, as though it was a genuine stone, in various fluted designs of evey description. There are goldtone spacers at each end of each bead and the chain connecting them is a goldtone serpentine. This gives it an antique feeling in my opinion that is charming. In terms of quality: that typical Linea artistry just speaks for itself. And although I have a varied fashion jewelry collection this is a beautiful and unusual addition which I'll enjoy for years to come..
As easy and chic as the clothes!
I do not have the time or inclination to spend hours getting ready for work in the morning. I love LDO clothing and jewelry because I can literally throw it on and walk out the door and look good ALL day. Yes, if I have more time or know ahead of time how my day will go, I can plan ahead, but to throw something like this on alone over a camel colored sweater set with black pants and gold earrings and get complimented all day on how nice I look is fabulous.
This goes with everything, from funky in jeans, the office, a night out, and anything else. Alone or layered - I literally just throw on the first couple of things I see in the tray sometimes - you can't go wrong with this.
I have to disagree with the other reviewers, it doesn't look cheap, and maybe $70 is steep but if you wear this a couple of times a week and everyone says you look so pulled together - it's WORTH IT!!!!!
Not worth price
Disappointed when I saw this necklace and sadly it's going back. The stations look like plastic in my opinion. I just can't justify paying this much for a cheap looking necklace. I ordered the cabachon cross and absolutely love it so all's not lost.
LOVE LOUIS DELL OLIO JEWELRY!!
Louis has always designed wonderful clothing, but his jewelry is a wonderful plus --SO elegant. I get compliments every time I wear this necklace and the other one with square settings. They are both SO beautiful and expensive looking. Please have more of Louis' jewelry -- and anything else he wants to design; he is a fantastic designer with exquisite taste.
At last we have a world renowed designer who is introducing QVC buyers to the world of high style and attempting to educate women how to dress and accessorize on a higher, more sophisticated level. This necklace is not suppose to "match" on each. The random pattern is intentional. I have VERY expensive necklaces with real stones and glass beads and let me share with you they are VERY heavy and hurt the back of your neck. At the end of the day can't wait to take them off. Why would any one in this day and age expect these pearls and beads to be real? Never happen. This is fashion jewely designed to compliment what is being worn; not stand alone pieces. I wore two of these with two J264037 when I was invited to attend a dinner for one of our presidental candidates and these necklaces were the hit of the evening. DO NOT LOOK CHEAP!! LOVE EVERYTHING LOUIS BRING US!! THANK YOU LOUIS & QVC!!!
Sorry-Did not like
Just received this today and returned today. The stones were too fake looking. I knew they weren't real stones but expected a better quality.
Are You Kidding Me?
I like the fashions and after reading the reviews couldn't wait to get this necklace. Cheap is the only word I can use to describe it. The beads are plastic, the colors are dull and there's no symmetry in the placement of the beads. When I opened the box I could almost hear the manufacturer laughing at me for making this purchase. It should cost $10, not $80 with shipping! So disappointed!!!
This necklace looks as if it should cost a lot more. The gold has a soft. burnished finish that is not flashy. I love that I can throw it on with casual clothes, or pair it up with the other Linea byzantine pieces for a really dressy look. This is one gold toned piece that even "silver only" ladies will love!
I wear this necklace several times a week. I get a lot of attention when I do. It looks as good as any real jeweled necklace that would sell for 50K! It makes a perfect gift for a special friend. It goes with every thing! So special!
A Must Have...
This necklace is everything previous reviewers have stated. Beautiful, rich color and quality that will last for years and years. It is worth every penny! Wear it alone or layer it with chains, pearls, or the other Linea necklaces and earrings.
This necklace is like a finely designed piece of art. First of all, the goldtone chain has a delicacy to it and a unique shape. And then there are the variegated beads and simulated pearls. Louis's color choices as well as his placement of the beads and pearls are superlative. What can I say? The man's a genius. There is an inspired magic to being a top-rated designer, and he has it in spades. All I know is that the colors pull me in, and the design delights my eyes. Cannot wait to receive my waitlisted multi-gemstone mate for this station necklace. Sheer elegance.
FINALLY! The Missing link is Home!
Finally, I feel complete. The 3rd member is now home to join the other 2. How could you not get this necklace? Even if you don't own the other 2, this is a piece not to be missed. I love the different colors and shapes as well as the ability to double or wear long. This piece will go with almost anything based on the many colors you will find in it. Don't let this one pass you by. BTW, check out the available earrings which you can get in pierced or clips and a choice of red, green or purple.
