Rated 2 out of 5 by tennpeach Not as shown, I think!!!
Received this a few days and am getting it ready to be mailed back...do not care for it as it flips over to much and gets twisted..looks a little bit on the cheap side as well...will be more careful with my ordering from now on.
Rated 4 out of 5 by RavenDMD Classy, but
I'd wanted this necklace for a very long time, and now I have it, plus 2 matching bracelets. The one thing I do not understand, for the life of me, is WHY ARE ALL THE COINS SET WITH THE HEADS UPSIDE DOWN??? I'm keeping it, but the setting makes no sense.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BeadedOne Wonderful Presentation of Lire
I receive compliments whenever I wear this necklace. It draws attention from coin lovers, Italy lovers, and everyone who enjoys pretty jewelry. If you're on the fence about this necklace, flip a coin and hopefully you will end up with this lovely jewelry. I have completely enjoyed mine. I have the matching bracelet, also.

I am quite surprised by the negative comments. I received this and it is absolutely beautiful! The coins show the back side with the denominations and various plants, buildings, etc, which is how it should be. I have worn this with jeans and dresses, and constantly receive compliments on it. In fact, one woman chased me down in the store today to ask about it. For me, the lira jewelry is important. My family is from Italy, and I studied at the University of Perugia when they were still using the lira, so it really brings me back! Now, with everyone using the euro, it isn't as unique.
I also have the lira charm bracelet in the 14k as well as the lira charm bracelet and necklace in sterling, with coins dangling, and I love them all. Too bad those are not still available for the people who don't like the way this necklace hangs.
My recommendation is to not let this one pass by - I think you will love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jewelry Goddess Stunning!!!!!
This necklace is absolutely stunning!!! Looks classy and expensive. Not heavy .
Although it was a bit pricey the 5 payment plan made it do-able. Love it too much to part with it. So glad I went with it and got it. Love love love it !!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by DancesWithBeagles It's a beauty, BUT...
...I also wish they had done the necklace with some of the heads upright. This would have been easily achieved by putting BOTH front and back of each coin ON ONE SIDE of the necklace. There are two of each coin except the center one, so it could be an easy assembly to show both sides at once - and make the coins even more interesting. I purchased anyway, knowing about the upside down heads, and it is still a very pretty, historic necklace. As for the ladies who like a longer length, there are bronzo extenders in gold which match this piece.
Rated 5 out of 5 by simonsezi it's beautiful
lays perfectly on the neck. the coins are facing with the denominations showing and is the correct way for coin jewelry. it's a lovely piece of history. it is easy to clasp and looks expensive and like gold.
Rated 1 out of 5 by lhenderson So Disappointed I Could Cry!
I was so eagerly awaiting this necklace in the mail and when it arrived today ahead of schedule I was overjoyed. Until I opened the package. The Face of the coins are all upside down. If you wear it so the coins are right side up then you are seeing the backs of the coins. I'm sorry but for $160 it just bugs the heck out of me that they didn't have the coins facing the right way. It's pretty and well made although I would also like to have had it a bit longer, maybe 20" instead of 18" but I just can't pay that much money for something that is so noticeably odd. I checked the photo on line and it seems they are all like this so exchanging probably won't do any good. I'm so sad because I really really wanted this to be fabulous!
