27.25 ct tw Black spinel 18" Graduated Sterling Tennis Necklace
Wanted to love
I really wanted to love this necklace; it has so much going for it: black, sparkle, well made. I kept it and kept taking it out and trying it on; but, it just didn't look like a $300 necklace to me -- not in daylight, not in candlelight. And, it does turn over and twist, even when very carerfully put on correctly. In the end, with 30 days looming, I reluctantly returned it. For half the money I might have kept it; but, if I had, I probably would never have been completely happy with it because of the turning and twisting. I think I'd be happier with a bead necklace in this material -- or in something black and sparkly that costs a lot less.
I wanted to love this necklace and the 20" one that I ordered. I wore them several times and was not in love Definitely not worth the money. The sterling silver made it look cheap. The stone were sparkly but seemed unattractive in some way. Maybe if the stones were larger or in a different setting. Bottom line is that it is not worth the money.
I was looking forward to getting this necklace and when it got here it was 1 disappointment after the next! The necklace was broke, the clasp was flimsy and it didn't sparkle like it did on tv! I sent it back Immediately!! :-(
This necklace really is beautiful. The stones brightly sparkle in any light, day or night. I can't think of another stone that does that. The necklace works both with casual and dressy clothing. There is a lot of silver surrounding each stone, but it doesn't distract from the stone at all. It adds to the look of quality and adds to the price. I haven't had a problem with it flipping at all. It is a graduated stone size design and is made to flex with the neck. Try holding the clasp with the lock tab in your right hand, so the flex is in the inside. I always buy an 18 inch necklace to lay at the right spot on my neck. I hesitated paying this much, but it was unlike anything I had and felt it was very versatile, classic, different and should last a long time. It's a keeper!
I was looking forward to receiving this but when it arrived I was very disappointed that the necklace will not lay flat on your neck but constantly rolls over so that you cannot see the stones in the front. I didn't pay this much for a necklace to have it do this in the front. Very disappointed!!!!
