Kenneth Jay Lane's Fashion Show Bead Necklace
Big & "Heavy"
I usually love KJL jewelry, but this one was extremely heavy, and squeaky when you move. Sorry.
Lovely, but a little heavy
I really like this necklace and will keep it despite the fact that it is a little heavy, but when I wear it I get so many compliments. A statement piece, very good quality, love the turquoise color.
STUNNING BUT MUCH TO HEAVY
I loved, loved the necklace however, it was much to heavy for me and the lobster claw clasp was not large enough to fasten it doubled around your neck. Sorry Barry but I had to send this one back.
Too heavy, too long(appeared as a choker on tv) and overall looked very cheap and was noisy. It make clacking noises as you walk. Very disappointed....returned it immediately.
Beautiful necklace but waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too heavy!!!!!
Stunning But Too Heavy
This is a dramatic necklace. The beads are very large and make a BIG statement. The problem is the weight and the clasp. The clasp is very wimpy and appears to be the weakest link. It would be good to have a beefy clasp that would allow you to fasten the necklace in the actual chain, not just the ring at the end. I think if you could wear the necklace shorter it would look nicer as it lays across the chest, instead the cluster of beads tend to hang between the breasts, plus it may help with the weight pulling on your neck.
I bought this necklace in Grey and when I got it I was blown away. Yes, it's big, bold and not for the faint of heart. I came back and got it in the Blue and the White as well. I am tall and can carry it, but I can see how a tiny woman would feel awkward in it. Also, I don't get the complaints about it being "heavy." It's certainly more weighty than most necklaces, but I had neck surgery and can't wear heavy things and this didn't bother me one bit. Love it!
Definitely a bold statement
This necklace is quite a fashion statement. It will definitely get you noticed. If you do not like a bold look , this is definitely NOT the necklace for you. However, that being said, this necklace is beautiful! I ordered the white, and it is a crisp white color, not off white by any stretch of the imagination. It is heavier than most necklaces that I have, but the quality is top notch. I can see this lasting for many years to come. If you like a bold look, I would definitely go for it! I am thinking of getting the grey as well.
Too Heavy / Beads very large
I guess this was just not for me. Looked very nice on TV, but not what I expected when I opened the box. Plus, this necklace feels heavy on my neck. I brough to work and we put it on the postage meter to see that it weighed about 13 ozs.
BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
I was attracted to this as it makes quite a statement. It is gorgeous. I've had co-workers say that I can leave it for them. It is heavy, but not anything that bothered me. It simply reminded me that I had it on. My 18 mo. grandson was quite taken with it, and loved tossing the beads around and saying his favorite word--ball.
It looks great with many shades of black and gray. I enjoy fingering it throughout the day, as the feel is wonderful.
The chain is very substantial, and I have no worries about it breaking. Wonderful purchase.
When I saw this on air I fell in love with it. I purchased the grey. When I opened the box I could not believe how fabulous this necklace is. The faux pearls are huge. The gold rope chain looks like a million dollars!!!1 What a CLASSY, FUN and BOLD piece. I have been stopped everywhere I wear it.
THANK YOU KJL for all of your great pieces. No one does faux pearls like you. I have many.
THANK YOU for BARRY. He is great!!!!
This is a Wow Piece
The lady I got this for loves big jewelry, so I know she will love this (in gray). Yes it seems weighty, but the construction seems to be top notch. I think if my friends says it weighs too much I'll remove a few beads and can make matchings earrings or get a nice chain and make a bracelet?? There are a LOT of beads to work with. I ordered the Harbor Island earrings hoping they would look good, and the color is spot on.
My reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars is simply the price. It is on the pricey side...
