Or Paz Sterling Scroll Design Slide Necklace
Very different and quite lovely!
This is a unique and lovely slide. It is quite substantial . The chain is woven and gives the slide character! I would have loved to see it with a shiny chain to match the slide.
Really love the pendant, a very different look, unique - nice size as well. The chain, while giving the necklace more of an old world look, just did not work for me. The pendant had too much shine making the chain just look deeply tarnished. Just not a good balance. I really wanted the pendant though, and a bit longer. I used wire cutters to cut off the chain. I found an old silver snake chain that I managed to thread through. I also had an old chain extender I got from QVC ages ago, and attached that. Wa-lah! Perfect match and the length I wanted! I love it now, but only gave it a 4 because of the (too) dark chain for my taste anyway.
Very Pretty - 4 1/2 stars
The pendant is beautiful and as substantial as any silver pendant I would want to wear. It's got high shine and great presence. It's bold and feminine at the same time. It's truly lovely. The only down side for me is the chain--thus, 4.5 stars. The chain is a bit dark and doesn't have a lot of shine, even after I polished it. It's dark because it's pretty heavily oxidized. On the other hand, the less shiny chain makes the pendant stand out more. Note that the pendant cannot be taken off this chain, which is fine--the chain is quite strong. All in all, it's a definite keeper, and a piece I wear fairly often. A pretty piece and a very good value for the price.
Or Paz Slide Necklace
I have ordered several Or Paz pieces and loved them all, until this one. To me it's just so-so and doesn't have the "wow" factor that most of the Or Paz items have. I had asked my kids for this pendant for Mother;s Day, and they complied. However, I am reluctantly returning this. It seemed more substantial in the on-line picture than it does in person. I am instead keeping Or Paz pendant #J159409, that I had purchased for my sister's birthday. I'm ordering another one for her. I think the Or Paz floral openwork pendat just mentioned is a much better buy than the slide and is more attractive. I also have the matching Or Paz ring, which I wear often.
Unique and Pretty!
I LOVE this necklace! For the money it is a substantial piece of silver jewelry. It's unique and pretty. The slide is a nice size. Nicely crafted. Its so much nicer in person. The chain does have an oxidized look to it. However, it really does work. Gives it more of an old world feel. Knowing it was crafted in Israel makes it even that much more special. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Makes me happy when I wear it. A true little work of art!
I was surprised to read the negative reviews. This necklace is both bold and delicate at the same time -- something I have never seen before. I just think it is unique and I'm going to wear it constantly. The comments about the chain being dark made me go look at mine again. I suppose it is a little dark, but I seriously don't notice that at all when this is on because your eye is immediately drawn to the slide. I just love it! This is my first Or Paz piece and I will definitely be back for more.
I just received this necklace and gasped a little when I opened the box, because it is just gorgeous. The slide is actually quite petite, despite the substantial metal content. The chain is exactly as described and complements the slide. One of my favorite jewelry purchases from QVC.
not what I expected
This is not what I expected, the chain just looks dirty, it is much darker than the pendant and It's flat, I just did not like it
My chain was dull looking and did not coordinate well with the slide that was high polished.The chain (made flat not rounded) had to be untwisted a couple of twirls before latching. Pendant would have worked nicely on a wire type necklace. Sorry, sending back.
TOP QUALITY, BEAUTIFUL DESIGN!!
This is my first piece of Or Paz jewelry and I am just blown away by the qaulity! It's absolutely beautiful and you can't help but notice the amazing attention to detail, from the weighty and substantial pendant and chain down to the beautifully designed endcaps and the substantial lobster claw clasp. This a top notch piece in every sense of the word. I also love that it's totally unique looking, not something that you will see everyone wearing. I realize that this is not an inexpensive piece, but it's worth every penny and then some!!
