J147733 - Tacori IV Diamonique Epiphany Blue Chalcedony Enhancer
I was eagerly looking forward to receiving this enhancer, but when I opened the box, it was smudged and dirty. I was annoyed that I had to spend 20 minutes cleaning it before I could really examine it. Some of the smudges were tough to remove. It's a nice enhancer and it fits all the necklaces and chains I wish to wear it with. It's a lovely shade of the palest blue, pretty close to the pictures on the website, and seems to be made well. I took off one star for the smudges and dirt; that should NOT have happened.
Eye-catching and elegant!
I have a pair of light blue pear drop earrings and was looking for a necklace to go with them. This cabaschon is light blue in the photo, but when i received mine, it was a milky white with no discernible blue. However, the beautiful signature Tacori silver detailing is gorgeous and eye-catching. I decided to keep mine because it doesn't match, but it "goes" as QVC's clothing designer and TV star Clinton Kelly would say. I'm giving it 4 stars because it wasn't even remotely light blue. In every other way it is perfect.
Pretty & Dainty
This enhancer is very pretty & a nice price as well. The chalcedony stone is exactly the same color as in the picture. I own many pieces of chalcedony, but this isn't as blue as my other pieces, which is the reason for the 4 stars. Most of the chalcedony I've purchased is from QVC and is such a beautiful shade of blue. I love Tacori but I think this stone hardly looks as blue as my other items. That's ok though, it's still a very nice enhancer.
One thing I've noticed lately is that most of the enhancers I've bought recentely do not have a very large bail. I love enhancers but sometimes I can't get them to fit on a strand of pearls or doubled up chains, which defeats the purpose. These are pieces from all different vendors and designers. Just a suggestion that maybe the inside of the enhancer bail could be enlarged some. My older pieces are just fine.
