J142738 - Sterling Malachite Station 17" Necklace with Pendant
AND FURTHERMORE… IN ADDITION TO…
...acquiring my first Malachite from QVC a few years past... and loving the spectrum of Malachite ‘Greenness’, which emotes elegance, luxury, yet exotic intonations, I have added additional pieces to my ensemble. Aside from the gorgeous Rondel-shaped gem and sterling ‘spacers’, the beaded necklace stands alone and among the ‘stunning’ category with its multi-use functions. The oval ‘free-form’ Malachite pendant included is a purchase-plus, with its snap-bail and with the necklace’s lobster-claw clasp security is assured. The Sterling Freeform Malachite lever-back earrings (J142291) were an addition must-have in pear-shape ‘banding’, directionally N/S. I sometimes dream in purple, or blue, or peach, the acquisition of Malachite came from the ‘green’ dreams… including my birthstone, the Peridot. Defining Malachite: ‘A green to nearly black mineral carbonate of copper… [is] used as a source of copper and ornamental stoneware.’ Whichever way you look at it, Malachite is ‘mah-ve-lous, darling; simply mah-ve-lous’. Have you added any of your color dreams to your wardrobe lately? :-) “If there were dreams to sell,/Merry and sad to tell,/And the crier rung his bell,/What would you buy?” --Thomas Lovell Beddoes, ‘Dream-Pedlary’
This necklace arrived today and it is beautiful. I ordered it as a gift for my sister-in-law and I know she'll be thrilled. The pendant is highly polished, with lovely markings, and I really didn't expect it to be this lovely.
The Malachite is beautiful! The enhancer is worth the price alone and there is a lot of rondell beads that are perfact quality. I re-strung mine with some small onyx and sterling and had enough rondel beads to do another necklace. Great value!
Such a disappointment
I read the reviews and really like the gemstone jewelry. When I took it out of the package I was shocked at the way the necklace was twisted. It was so tight on the string that it could not hang straight. Back it goes.
No Wow factor
The price was good and it had great reviews so I figured I couldn't go wrong with this necklace, but when it arrived it just didn't wow me. It went back.
I was so looking forward to receiving this malachite necklace. It was on waitlist and I knew the reviews were good. I don't know what happened when they manufactured this new batch but the necklace I received is strung together so tight that the necklace will never lay flat. It is all buckled up and looks terrible. What a disappointment as I was so excited to finally add a piece of malachite to my jewelry wardrobe. This is going right back to QVC and hopefully they will fix the problem so that next time people will receive the same good quality as stated in the initial reviews.
A real beauty
I read all the reviews and was on wait list forever. I finally received it and am so happy I waited. This is a stunning necklace... You won't be disappoointed.
This piece is so stunning. It took me a some time to get it for me, but when I did, it georgeous. Every part of this piece is great. I am a big fan of Malachite.
This product exemplifies QVC to a tee - the Quality is magnificent, the Value is unbelievable and the Convienience is perfection. This is a beautiful peice of jewelry and was a perfect birthday present. LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOVE it!!!
I bought this as a gift - she loves it! It is a quality peice of quality workmanship - and it is a substantial weight, but not heavy. You really get your money's worth here. I just think it should be in a nice gift box for gift giving, rather than Q's "green" boxes. You can't go wrong here. It is a unique stunner. Thanks, QVC!
Lovely stones, fabulous value!
This beautufil malachite piece far exceeded my expectations. The green is just a gorgeous shade, particularly with the striations of color in the pendant. Actually, it's an enhancer, so it's super versatile. I know I will get tons of wear out of this set. I've already worn it with a black and sterling seed bead torsade, as well as the beaded malachite necklace pictured here. Beautiful!
This is a lovely necklace. The stones are just beautiful!!
