Rated 4 out of 5 by anonymous007 Nice but damaged
I have been wanting this necklace for a while. The finish on the beads is lovely. It is strung on a very fine oval-link chain with about 1/4 inch of the chain showing at the clasp when worn long. I assume the extra chain keeps the beads from being too tight when doubled. But I am concerned about the durability of the chain. My mother had a Stephen Dweck necklace strung like this that broke and it was never repaired correctly. I assume the whole chain would need to be replace to really repair such a piece correctly if the chain breaks.
My biggest disappointment is the necklace I received had dented beads. I didn't notice at first glance--so look yours over carefully. The beads don't seem extremely light so maybe QVC isn't packing them well for transit or maybe they are more fragile than the seem. I will try to reorder but the last time this happened with a QVC necklace the second one I received was worse than the first. I wish quality control was better about not shipping damaged pieces.
Rated 4 out of 5 by FinejewelryCKR QUITE CHIC WHEN...
I, honestly, do not like this necklace when worn on as it is meant to: in its entire length.
I find the graduated beads on either side of the chest i and the smaller ones in the center not flattering at all.
It looks off kilter!
However, when one doubles it, it looks quite chic on.
It has a thoughroughly different look!
And, it is quite flattering, with its graduated beads looking more cohesive in its design.
Hence, the four stars.

I received my necklace today. I LOVE the White, I am also so glad I ordered it in the Gold tone which I hope arrives soon. I like to double my 36" lengths, it makes such a nice statement around the neck, but to each their own. Anyway, getting back to the necklace. It's lightweight but looks like its super solid and makes a statement. I'm glad it's lightweight as my neck would ache. The Satin finish is beautiful and it looks soooooo real, better than my Judith Ripka 36" Truffle necklace. I honestly thought I was not going to like this set as I've never ordered anything from Veronese before, thus am really happy and extremely overjoyed I ordered all the Satin finished pieces in White and Gold tone... Now if May would just arrive, so I can have the full set... 'Ah!
