Honora Cultured Pearl Double Strand Keshi Necklace
Even though the descpription was for "black" pearls, the one I got is darker colors of blue, green and purple with a hint of black. It is prettier than shown. Bought this as a grad. present for a great niece. Now all the girls that were there when she opened it, want one. Perfect for older teen girls or young women. The length is nice too, esp. since it is a double strand. Had not been pleased by some recent purchases from Honora, but this one is great!!!
Casual and non-fussy
This was one of my first keshi purchases. Like others, the color surprised me a little bit b/c it had more purple/red tones and less black/blue than expected based upon the picture. However, I wasn't trying to match anything and still liked the casual appeal of this necklace, so I kept it. It's good for those times when regular pearls would look fussy.
Bought 2 - Disappointed in Both
I bought 2 of these and didn't like either. One was black tiny keshi pearls and not much iridescent color that is shown in the qvc pic.
The other had larger pearls, which I liked, but the color was a brassy color.... I mean they were not black (or silver) they were completely a different color...more browns and brassy color. I LOVE keshi and I'm very disappointed in both these. I usually like QVC jewelry and seldom give negative reviews, but this one deserved it.
Not like the picture at all
The base color is more of a silvery gray, not the black shown in the picture. They had little luster and NONE of the rich coloring seen in the picture. Considering the mostly positive feedback regarding the colors, this was really surprising. The pearls are very small too. While the pearl size is listed in the description, without the perspective of a video presentation on a real person it was hard to gauge just how small they really are.
I love keshi pearls but this was a big disappointment.
A Nice Smaller Necklace
Purchased with the intent to give as a graduation gift for an 18 year old girl. I think this necklace is more appropirate for a younger aged girl as it is small in circumferance and the pearls are an appropriate size for a younger girl. It is a nice necklace but I would not recommend for an adult woman or late teen aged girl.
Goes with many outfits
I wasn't sure I'd keep this. Easy- pay made it easier for me to try it. The color of the pearls is beautiful--many colored and irridescent. The pearl size is small, but it is a double strand. I found I wear it ALL the time. It goes with so many outfits and doesn't look overdone. However the pearls have so much shine. It adds the perfect finishing touch to an outfit. I recommend as long as you know they don't have a big presence, but a classy one.
Not For Me
The black pearls were cool but they were a little small for me. Maybe compared to the larger Keshi's from the last show, my opinion was set. I had ordered the Peacock Keshi's from the last show and the size was dramatic. These were just not for me.
Gives you the reaction you want from your jewelry.
This necklace gives you the reaction you really want when you get a new piece of jewelry. You open the box and nearly gasp because it's beautiful. The colors are amazing, swirling purples and blues. I am drawn in by the metallic looking luster. This necklace is stunning!!
Dual Duty Beauty
If you love blues and greens, and have a leaning towards the lustrous and shiny,
this one's for you. I was also pleased to see that the ring part of the clasp is tiny.
This makes it a tad harder to put on. However, it also means that you can put the
larger part of the clasp under a collar, and wear the necklace long. I didn't expect that.
I like having choices!
This glows and is breathtaking beautiful. I ordered it sight unseen just from the photo and in person it is magnificient. It looks like it costs triple the price and the colors are so unique and stunning. It's one of my top favorites of all time. I love it. Thank you honora and QVC!!! It's really quite unique and beautiful........
