Sterling 20" Bold Polished Byzantine Necklace, 22.8g
WHAT CAN I SAY?!? THIS NECKLACE IS A CLASSIC, AND I LIKE BYZANTINE, SO, THERE YOU GO!!!!! SOMEWHAT LIGHTWEIGHT, BUT WELL PUT TOGETHER.
I like this one better than the ultra fine byzantine. It looks woven tighter to me,
and more of a traditional byzantine. So beautiful, and happy with this purchase.
I absolutely love this necklace. it is gorgeous. its lightweight but has the look of a very heavy, expensive necklace. its also very comfortable. I usually wear it with the clasp in the front because its so decorative. I also have the matching bracelet and ring.
Have been looking a long time for this style...classic...with added comfort as to weight...it arrived today...thank you ...
Pretty off. Liked it less well on. Looks well made as all the Turkish pieces do. I just did not love it on. It is very light weight and can pop up on it's side rather than hang correctly. I only have so much room for jewelry so nothing stays unless I love it. Maybe it will look better on you. Returned.
just seemed small..didnt drape my neck well, i prefer a lobster clasp..i will be returning.. all in all..it is a pretty necklace..not as "bold" as i thought it would be..but nice design/workmenship..for the price,i cant afford to maybe like it...
An attention grabber -- smooth and substantial
This necklace is a great value, but even more important, great quality. It is consummately well made, with an easy to use clasp which is so beautiful I have found myself choosing to wear it visibly on the side rather than in back. Super smooth, shiny and supple. I hope it ages as well as it wears in these first few days, as it does not seem to be platinum plated like so many of my heavy sterling pieces and has already lost its initial brightness. I anticipate that the inner portions not reachable by a polishing cloth will blacken over time, and that the piece will develop character.
The necklace holds up well against my high-polished 14K gold earrings and bracelet, along with 2-tone white and yellow 18K gold as well as with other sterling pieces. The compliments received from day one made it an immediate signature piece, supplanting my well-established favorites. I am hard on jewelry, and if this necklace proves less than durable, I will let you know. Thanks, QVC, for the beautiful decoration!
I did buy the 18" version in addition to this 20". Intended to wear both together, but because they do not lie perfectly on the neck, they created slightly different shapes as I moved, and the combination did not look quite right to me. I am reluctantly returning the 18".
My other necklaces are starting to get jealous!
Ever since I got this necklace in the post, I have not taken it off. Like I said my other necklaces are getting jealous. It goes with everything and feels great on. It is rich and people have commented on it non-stop. Its a must!
I don't normally spent a lot on necklaces BUT this one was well worth it! You can dress it up or down so I will definitely make this my go-to necklace!
20" bold polished byzantine necklace
I bought this along with the matching bracelet. I love them both. Lays beautifully on the neck. Large clasp, easy to work.
