American West 48.0 Cttw. Black Spinel Sterling Silver Necklace is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I was cruising online a few evenings ago and saw this beautiful necklace offered as a "last clicks." This necklace is simply stunning. Yes, you definitely can wear it with your little black dress to a special occasion or a white tee shirt and jeans. I resembles a bird to me more than a cross but either way it is a stunner. The pendant has an enhancer so it can be easily removed from the chain. The pendant is weighty so I don't like the light weight chain that came with it. I also think it needs a bigger gauge chain but I have plenty of those and it looks smashing. I would wear it on a leather or silk cord as well. I have those also. Didn't care for it on pearls or CP native American pearls. Don't let the chain deter you from purchasing this necklace. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bold and Stunning I finally broke down and ordered this, and am I glad I did! I hesitated for some time as the price was beyond my budget, but I was able to pick this beauty up eventually and am making up for lost time wearing it. I am 5ft. 4 and somewhat small, but this is not overwhelming. The beaded curtain effect keeps it light, sparkling and slightly sexy. I do not think it is too big for my frame. It is not gaudy. I have no argument with the length of the chain, but, since this is an enhancer, I have worn it longer. This can accommodate a substantial chain. I good investment in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STANDOUT PIECE This is a beautiful and unusual piece of jewelry. It is so well made and the movement of the hanging spinel is an eye-catcher. It is stunning on and I get tons of compliments every time I wear it. Breath-taking piece and again so well made you will love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice black spinel, but odd I would not call this a cross. It does resemble a bird. It is meant to rest on your chest. If you wear it up high at your neck, or very long, the "bird" will teeter-totter back & forth-which just looks too odd! I returned it as I could not see myself wearing it that often,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVELY!! After I purchased the long 70+ spinel necklace from jai, I just knew this piece would be awesome on that necklace...and it is. It reminds me of a south western design of a bird...not so much a cross. I wear it on the shorter doubled length of the necklace and let the longer part of the necklace frame the pendant.. looks right at home. Constructed so well and shines along with the spinel necklace. Did not like it on the chain it came with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.5 Stars Only Because of Chain I watched this for months, never intending to buy, but because the shape and shimmer was beautiful. I just didn't think I'd wear it necessarily. Suddenly the sale price became really good and during an AW show I decided to go for it. I see thunderbird, not cross. The oxidized silver, rope design, very slight curve of the bar to rest on your chest, rich, shimmery, weighty beads are spectacular. The chain is too dainty and is better suited for smaller pendants. This looks better on longer, more substantial chains or a short choker, maybe leather or black velvet ribbon! Grand size, love it! Can be edgy, ethnic, sexy, Art Deco, Southwestern, etc. Versatile statement piece. Should come with a better, more proportional chain, I agree with a previous reviewer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't decide I lusted for this piece and finally broke down and purchased. Here's why I'm torn. Pros: - stones sparkle and glimmer - big statement piece, looks larger in person than appears online - different and beautiful - weighty Cons: - needs a more substantial chain or collar - would look better on a heavier gauge, longer chain - 30-36" - teeter totters back and forth from side to side while wearing it - doesn't hang straight - slim chain is out of proportion to the pendant

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GORGEOUS AND UNUSUAL PIECE I have been eyeing this piece for a long time and when the price went down I ordered it. I had a beautiful black spinel necklace from QVC with about 5 or 6 millimeter carved beads and I added this piece and it makes the most beautiful art deco necklace ever. Awesome.
