Carolyn Pollack Essentials Sterling 5-Strand Bead Necklace
Lovely after some work ...
I wasn't crazy about this necklace when it first arrived, the beads are strung too tight and it hung wonky. Now that I've had it awhile and fiddled with it, the necklace has 'relaxed' some and the strands layer more casually. I ordered the black. It looks lovely with the picture jasper enhancer listed below.
This is my first CP jewelry purchase and I am in love! The Rhodalite is a very pretty muted plum color and looks very substantial to wear on its own. I were it everyday and it goes with everything. Will not be my last CP purchase!
This necklace is really nice. I ordered in black to hang enhancers on but it looks great by itself. Thinking of getting the rhodanite.
Bought this necklace to go with the Maine-ly Mauve enhancer. Perfect match. Only thing I don't like is the oxidation on the end caps. I never liked oxidation, but that will be in the back, so I won't have to look at it. I make a lot of my own beaded jewelry, but it would have cost me more for the components than what this necklace cost me, and I would still have had to string it. It's a great buy at this price!
Great Go To Necklaces!!!
I bought both the black and the pink. These are very comfortable and stylish necklaces. They are well made and sturdy. Nothing flimsy about them. Love Carolyn's pieces.They go with many different outfits and occasions. These are a must have for anyone's jewelry collection. Don't hesitate to get these you will get much use out of them!!!
NORMALLY NOT MY STYLE. I BOUGHT THE PINK TO MATCH ANOTHER CAROLYN PIECE. THE BEADS ARE VERY PRETTY. NICELY MATCHED. PRETTY SILVER END CAPS FINISH IT OFF NICELY. I DIDN'T LIKE THE MATCH SO I SENT IT BACK. LIKE I SAID NOT MY STYLE BUT VERY NICE JUST THE SAME AND I WOULD RECOMMEND IT.
I have the onyx and again "Essentials" is the perfect word. Note I do have all the onyx essentials necklaces and they each have a time and place within a wardrobe. The beads on this are small, but that does not deter from the versatility this insures. This would be a good "starter piece" or gift for anyone.
Love This Necklace!
I just love this necklace! It is so well made, so beautiful and so versatile. I love the size of the beads and the fact that two different sizes were used. I just adore it and have so many ways I want to wear it and it looks fabulous with enhancers too. This necklace will never go out of style, yet will always be right on trend. It can be tailored or sassy. I want to thank Carolyn Pollack for always having such great quality products at a good price. I love everything I have ever bought from her. I agree with the other reviewer that made in the USA is ultra important and I have found such a difference between the quality of products made elsewhere and those made here. Thank you Carolyn!
Beautifully tooled parts
Bought this in black agate and intend to use it with and without enhancers I have and will purchase in the future. Elegant mesmerizing twirled finish on finials is far more beautiful in person than in the picture. Chain with beautiful detail allows you to adjust the length by over 2 inches so it will fall perfectly in a number of necklines. Agate beads have substantial weight and beautiful luster. BEST OF ALL IT IS MADE IN THE USA, so thank you Carolyn for that! Cannot wait to wear it. I will be back for more of her pieces.
