Carolyn Pollack Sterling Silver Jade Cabochon Enhancer is rated
Rated 5 out of
A Little Powerhouse
I bought the multi, and it's so colorful and fun! It's a compliment magnet.
My blue stones are as expected, looking very similar to the color in the video (a previous reviewer wanted input). The color skews more lavender in certain light.
I wish it were a bit bigger, but I love it too much to dock a star for that. I attached a picture of the enhancer next to a couple paperclips for a more concrete perspective on size.
The details matter--the outer prongs are all decorative, there's a soft design element on the bail, and I love the CP logo on the back at the center of the spiral.
Pricey for the size, but it sure has character. Try it!

gorgeous design; disappointing stones
I ordered the blue jade enhancer before it was presented because it was such a beautiful and unusual color, even online, and I was totally "wowed" by how the piece looked on air in all of its sky blue luster in such a gorgeous spiral design. Unfortunately, the enhancer I received had stones that were a very flat, dull blue in color, verging on a slate blue-gray, which ruins the effect of the piece. I guess it was good that all of the stones were matching in their sad bluish tones, but because jade is so opaque, there was just no shine or joy in the piece. At this price point and from an amazing designer and jewelry line like Carolyn Pollack, I was extremely disappointed in the lack of quality.
I'll hold onto the enhancer for a week or so to see how things turned out for other buyers so I can determine whether an exchange would be worthwhile or whether I just have to sadly say goodbye to this piece--please be sure to share your experiences! Thank you.
