Joan Rivers Chic Classic 18" Necklace & Earrings Set
Gold tone looks cheap
I ordered all three colors and sent them back. I don't like the tone of gold at all. I think they would look better in silver. I asked my husband what he thought and he said the chains looked cheap, and I thought so too, so back they went. I feel like "The Queen of Returns".
Disappointed with silver metal stone covers
Ordered the brown and the purple with pierced earrings and recieved them two days ago on Friday will send them back today. The colors are beautiful but I never heard any mention on TV that the stones (all of them including earrings) had silver metal coverings on the backside of every stone (and the sets are done in goldtone) preventing any view or the stones from behind and preventing any light to hit the stones, this, in my opinion, "cheapened the look" of the stones.
pretty & versatile
I got the purple, which is a true purple, ie halfway between red and blue. However, the stones change color depending upon the light and what other colors are around, so you can see blues, reds, and pinks. The size of the pendant, chain, and earrings is big enough that you wouldn't mistake this set for "real," but the quality is great. It's the sort of set that, if made in France, you'd pay five times the amount for. Really nice and so versatile--dress it up or down, and goes with many colors.
This is a very elegant and sophicticated jewerly set. Its beautiful and just the right touch for nice outfits. The earrings are very light weight and confortable and the pendant is a perfect size. I also enjoy the 3 inch extender. I got the black onyx color, which will go with a lot of my outfits as I tend to wear a lot of black pants. I highly recommend this set.
Elegance at a Bargain Price
Clip earrings and a necklace at a bargain price! Bought the green and amethyst to go with Joan's velvet jackets and they are gorgeous. The gold finish is also of a high quality finish.
Great "go-to" set
I had this necklace on my Wishlist for a couple of months and when Easy Pay was offered along with the clearance price - I jumped on it. I bought this in the black and in the purple/blue (more of an amethyst shade with a hint of blue). I received these earlier in the week and I am NOT disappointed. These are made well and they look great. They are basic and this is what I was looking for. I have a job where I can dress casually or ultra-casually but I like to brighten up my look with some nice, basic pieces. I don't always want to make a fashion statement. I want to be comfortable and look pulled together - and not seem like I was trying too hard. These necklaces work perfectly. I don't know what the stones are made of - crystal or resin - but it doesn't matter. The black looks a bit like onyx. I like to take the pendant off and wear this with a black cord that a different Joan Rivers piece had come on. This looks a bit more hip at times than wearing it with the gold necklace - more casual. The earrings are great - not heavy (I can't even feel them) and they are very flattering to the face. So while this item may not be exciting to those looking for trendy items - I can tell you that this set is worth the money and that it looks really pretty on. I think its something that will always be in style and if you consider wearing the pendant with ribbons and such - you will get more wear out of it.
