Solvar Sterling Silver Tree of Life Pendant with Gemstones
It's true that the pendant isn't huge and neither are the stones, they are accents and not the least bit ostentatious. The overall appearance is slightly larger than a U.S. quarter. In my opinion, for this pendant, that's just right.
The silver is thick, shiny, and convex. it looks very well made.
I love genealogy, and had intended to wear this to symbolize the family tree, but it was late getting here, and arrived on the day we lost a beloved pet. Now when I look at it, I see my family in the roots and branches, and my beloved pets sitting in the tree. It'll be a lovely reminder for me and I'm grateful that it's such a nice piece.
I love this pendant! I love that the gemstones line up with my family's birthstones and it is a Tree of Life! How appropriate is that?
Yes, the stones are tiny, but the silver presence is stunning. If you enjoy Celtic knot style jewelry, you will love this necklace.
If you like big, bold ring-a-ding bling jewelry, this one is not for you. If you prefer pieces that speak softly but carry a big impact, do give this one a try. The gemstones are meant to be accents, not blinding headlights. They are the right dimension for the airy almost baroque design of the silver. Solvar silver--how many ways can this company find tobring the heart of Ireland to metal and stone? Thanks, Solvar and QVC.
I am truly surprised by those who were disappointed! This Pendant is bright and beautiful!
The gemstones are accents! That's what they are supposed to be...any larger and this piece would be garish! I have received so many compliments whenever I wear it! I am now buying one for a friend who loved it!!
I received my pendant a week ago. When I opened the box I couldn't believe how beautiful the artistry and workmanship was. I have worn it twice and love how it looks. I would ask for a 20 inch necklace so it would hang a bit lower. I would buy this for my sister, daughter in law and granddaughter. It is stunning.
Glad I ordered it!!!
More than 30 years ago, I had a tree of life pin made for my mother. It was done by a jeweler and cost more than I can say. When it was stoelen, I could never find another one. Then QVC had the same jewelry in a pendant. I ordered it because all of the stones I had in in my mother's pin are on this tree. It is so pretty in person. It sparkles so pretty. I am legallly blind, so if I say it is easy for me to see, it's true.
I agree that the chain is frail in appearance, but the pendant can easily be removed to wear on a slender ribbon, cord or other chain. I'm going to wear mine on a very long UltraThin chain which I will double with the pendant prominently displayed in the center. The result: very elegant.
Teeny tiny stones
The stones are hard to see, but I will keep it as each stone represents a member or two of my family. It seems well made and beautifully designed.
Gemstones Too Small!
When I saw this piece of jewelry on television the gemstones looked lovely,
however, in person you can hardly see them. It looks
like an inexpensive piece of jewelry.
Like the design
I really like the over all design of this pendant. I agree the gemstones are small, however they do have good color compared to other pieces I have purchased. My complaint about this piece is the chain. The rings used to put the piece on are so small that I have a hard time getting the little ring into the clasp. Please use bigger clasps and rings so those of us that do not always have someone around to help us with our jewelry can get the pieces on quicker.
Gemstones too small
The design is pretty, but the gemstone presence in real life is almost nonexistant - not like they looked on TV or in the photo with the product description. Doesn't seem worth the price.
