Smithsonian Simulated Victoria Transvaal Necklace
My socks were definitely knocked off when I opened the box - this necklace is a killer!! Even better than I expected - a real dazzler!!
If you dress up
I love this necklace but is it something that I will have to set and look at? If the pendant was smaller and flatter I guess I could wear it more, plus I like the above person wish that qvc made outfits to go with this gorgeous necklace. I won't deny that this is a very beautiful piece of jewelry and very well made but I don't know if it is for me or not. Hope I will be able to keep this beautiful piece but I don't know.
I got this in the Champagne over 2 years ago, and just happened to see it on sale now and got it in the clear. They both look D flawless, and seriously nothing short of what a Newport RI socialite would be wearing. This couldn't look more real.
I have to agree with the review about where do I wear this thing. The necklace is very well made. I purchased the conac color and it is a vibrant orangey brown color that is just breath taking. To wear this, one would need a top that is plain yet elegant and squared off at the shoulders. Or a very sleek turtle neck that is not a cowl neck top to be paired with an expensive pair of jeweled jeans or silk/ velvet pants. The only other option is a gown. I bought the necklace knowing it was a show piece that will probably never be worn much but since it was on 4 easy payments and the price was dropped, I bought it. That being said, the piece is spectacular, looks very elegant and even for it's size, real. I just wish QVC had some clothing options to go along with the necklace shown. There is nothing that can be paired with the necklace on QVC or in any store on the mall. I will probably just display it in the curio cabinet in the main hall of our house.
I ordered both colors. On the one hand, they are beautiful and look like museum pieces. On the other hand, they are large and look like museum pieces, so where would I wear them? Do I really want to pay over 200.00 for something I may never wear? Do I just keep them as collector's items?The fact that they are limited editions of 240 is also a concern. If I return them, I may never be able to change my mind and reorder, especially at the price and easy pays I got on these.
What a dilemma..
