I lost all of my jewelry and my jewelry armoire in a home burglary this summer. I was looking forward to at least replacing my large collection of Steel by Design chains. However, when my products arrived they were not of the same quality as my originals. The 18" Rope Chain Necklace is shinier and much lighter in weight. It slips around while I am wearing it so the latch is at my throat...not a pretty look.
I am keeping this chain since I have to wear something, and I prefer stainless steel because of the ease of upkeep, but I am even more saddened that the jewelry I received was not the same as the QVC original products.

The chain is of good quality and sturdy. My only complaint is that it is not very shinny but has a darker look/grayish. I tried it on with some silver earrings and took it off due to lack of shine. Will wear it with the hammered look earrings instead.

I wanted a chain to wear under my button-up or polo shirts that was thick enough to be seen. Although I'm a fan of sterling, buying a sterling chain this thick would have been very expensive; and besides, I wanted one that I could wear day-to-day in all circumstances (sweating, swimming, getting dirty) that I didn't have to worry about. Received this one yesterday and I love it! The chain is similar to other stainless steel pieces that I've purchased from QVC, in that it's a bit darker in color - more grey than white - than sterling, but 99% of people who looked at this would think it was some kind of silver. The chain is also very resilient, it's quite shiny, and I know that it's like my other steel pieces in that it won't tarnish. I can't say that I would wear this chain with my fanciest dresses: I'll save my fine jeweler for those occassions, because this looks a little rugged. But it's a great addition to pop-out under my collars and give me a little shine.
