J143628 - Scroll Design 1/4 Ounce Liberty Coin Enhancer 14K/22K Gold
I just received this pendant and I really think it is a good value. I did some checking on the coin and I have seen it priced as high as $500. The casting is a cast piece and well made in my opinion. I think it is a good value and I love it!!!!
Not This Time
Looks beautiful when you receive it, but after further inspection the pendant is made cheaply and very thin gold. Took it to a coin shop, and I was told I could buy this coin for well under $400 and have my own pendant made with better quality in the style I wanted. That is where I'm headed. Great idea, but not this time.
I always loved coin jewelry and prefer the real thing. The bezel on this piece is truly artfully done. This type of pendant never goes out of style, and is the sort of jewelry that can be passed down to future generations without losing its quality or value. Put it on a bold 14K gold chain and you'll have an outstanding piece of jewelry that commands attention.
Now my friend wants one too!
It's even prettier than it looks in the pictures here and with today's gold prices going out the roof this is a great purchase.
Actually, for the price, it's a deal...
First of all the only reason why I gave this pendant 4 instead of 5 stars is simply because my enhancer is defective. It doesn't come apart no matter how much I try and I don't want to damage it so I just slide it on a chain like normal pendants. The bail is PLENTY large enough to accommodate larger chains if you like them bulky. However, I find this pendant looks perfect on a 3 mm rope chain. Value wise, well, the coin itself is a 1/4 oz Gold coin! The coin itself is 1/4 Ounce PURE gold with a base metal added for strength. The coin alone has a current melt value of a little over $300 at the current gold rate. Then you have the frame itself which is about 4.5 grams, which at the current melting value for 14 K would be about $100. On my jewelers scale, the pendant weighs a total of 12.4 grams. Figure in the production cost on top of other overhead costs, and it's actually a good value considering you can still sell it for more than half of what YOU paid for it. And if gold continues to rise, so will the value of this beautiful pendant, especially since the US mint has halted ALL current production of the gold eagle coins!! The coin alone will become a collectible item cause it's a 2008 coin which last I looked is a key date (non-collectors with have to look that definition up!)! I say, all in all, and at the current introductory price, it is very much worth it's weight in gold! So go for it! It truly is a lovely pendant and the frame design is top notch and stunning (with the exception of my faulty enhancer)!
Very beautiful but way TOO expensive for what you get. The back of the enhancer should have been done better. In my opinion, this enhancer does not have a " wow factor" but the front does have an elegant look to it. I've wanted a coin pendant for quite a while, this is the best of QVC's coin pendant selection and i was able to get it on easy pay. So for those reasons, im keeping it.
Thought about it awhile before ordering, but then I decided to look at it as an investment. Glad I did. I really like it and it is beautiful.
Bold and Beautiful
My jaw dropped when I opened this....so much more beautiful than the on-line photo. Absolutely gorgeous. Although I hadn't originally intended to, I hung it on a rolo chain that I previously purchased from QVC. What a knockout. It's hefty, it's noticable, everyone raves over it, and I absolutely love wearing it. Excellent price for this substantial chunk of gold. It wouldn't surprise me at all to pay 3 times this amount anywhere else. Thanks QVC....another homerun!
"GORGEOUS COIN PENDANT"
I LOVE THIS COIN PENDANT! IT IS BIG AND BOLD, WHERE GOLD IS GOING THREW THE ROOF THESE DAYS! I WILL CHERISH THIS PIECE AND WHAT A GREAT PRICE! THIS WAS MY CHRISTMAS PRESANT TO MYSELF, THANKS QVC FOR HAVING SUCH INCREDIBLE GOLD DEALS!!
This is an absolutely exquisite pendant. A bit expensive, but timeless & elegant. A gold piece this meaningful & substantial is hard to come by these days. Definately worth the money. You won't ever need to buy another pendant. Very, very pleased.
This piece is exquisite and beautiful to wear. The scroll work is lovely and the piece weighs a hefty 10 grams. I'm a proud American and so proud to wear a piece of my country's currency.
