Jacqueline Kennedy Emerald Briolette Art Deco Necklace
more beautiful in person
Can't understand some of the low scores some folks have given this piece
It is beautiful. It is bigger than I thought. It is gorgeous!
It is very beautiful, but I may replace the chain as other posters have mentioned. We will see if it holds up. Also another item on waitlist did ship too! Sad to see the JBK line discontinuing.
decline in quality
When I heard the JBK line was being discontinued I was disappointed. There were many pieces I still wanted to get. I ordered 5 more. The green bead that should have been hanging on this pendant was loose in the box. One of the attaching links had broken leaving just a short hook. There is no way of fixing it -- nothing to attach a new ring to. The piece doesn't feel in the hand the way the JBK jewelry used to. Too bad up until recently this was an excellent line. The design of this art deco pendant is beautiful, just not the execution,
When I opened the box and looked at this necklace I said "holy cow." I wasn't expecting it to look as real as it does. I love it and it will match my silver emerald bracelet and a real emerald ring that I already own. I'm so sad that the JBK line is retiring. Maybe someone else can bring the same quality costume jewelry, but it won't have the special value of JBK attached to it.
I wanted this pendent for so long and kept looking at it. I purchased it and loved the pendent however, the chain makes it look so cheap. I am still undecided on whether I will keep it or not . I will see if a jeweler can put a different chain. If they made the bale as one you could alternate chains. Still undecided
Must wear to see its beauty
I thought this piece would be a stunner. When it arrived in the box I wasn't so sure. Wore it and wow what complements I received! The bale of the piece should be changed to make it interchangeable with other chains to give it more pop. I wish I could use it on my white gold chains or sterling silver chains.
This is another stunning piece from the JBK collection. The on-line photos don't do it justice. It is very detailed and intricate. Definite WOW factor! My daughter had put it on her Christmas list. She was delighted that we got it for her! I may have to add it to my collection as well!
The necklace is stunning, but I was terribly disappointed when it arrived. It looks and feel cheap. The weight of it is light, the chain is cheap. I wish they could make it better.
Love Turned to Disappointment
Loved the look of this necklace but was very disappointed when the dangle drop broke off. Was not as sturdy as I hoped it would be. Did not mistreat or mishandle to cause breakage.
The pendant is beautiful but the cheap looking chain ruins the whole thing. If you are prepared to buy another chain, or don't care if the chain looks cheap, it will be fine. I like my "fake" jewelry to look real so I'm careful what I wear with it and how I wear it. If you have a rich aunt and change the chain you might get buy with saying it's real and from my aunt.
