I ordered this necklace for myself and I am pretty happy with it. Like some of the other reviews, I do wish the stones were a little larger and the color a little stronger. But I am starting to expand my gemstone jewelry and I think this was a great addition. I get compliments every time I wear it so I like it!

This is a perfectly beautiful piece of jewelry that always receives comments when it is worn. I t completes a set of multi-gemstone jewelry (bracelet, ring, earrings) I've compiled from various sources. I like things that look designed--not merely cookie-cutter, and this fits the bill. No one would guess it is vermeil as it definitely looks like 14K and it has real diamond chips to make it shine. Very pleased with this purchase.

I am not a big fan of amethyst-just don't like the color purple-but it seems that a lot of multi-gemstone jewelry has this stone. Since I do like all the other colored gemstones in this necklace-and peridot is one of my favorites since it's also my Mom's birthstone-and since I have jewelry (earrings and rings) that I can mix and match this necklace with I decided to treat myself. It is a very pretty design and a nice size-I prefer things more on the smaller size-this is neither too small nor too large. Would be an appropriate gift for someone whose birthstone is represented by one of the stones. Might also be a nice gift for someone who is just starting to wear jewelry. I haven't tried doing this but I think if I wanted to take the pendant off the chain and put it on a different one I already own it would't be a problem-sometimes depending on the top I am wearing I like a longer chain.

If all you want out of this product is a red beaded necklace, you'll be happy with your purchase! However, I bought it because I wanted a carnelian piece in my collection of unusual gemstone jewelry, and this is NOT real carnelian. It's really easy to spot the fake stuff: real carnelian is rusty-red with cloudy patches but NO stripes, while fake carnelian (dyed and heat-treated agate) has striping. I should've known that a $30 carnelian necklace of this size was too good to be true, because natural carnelian is becoming very rare. Oh well. If I had known that this was made of common-as-dirt agate I only would've paid half of the price, but I'll still be keeping it because it IS a pretty necklace and I get lots of compliments when I wear it.

Bought these as gifts for some girls helping with our wedding. I'm happy with them, they're good value for the price. I love the dainty look of the strands, just be aware that the "gemstones" are very light, sort of clear/opaque instead of a darker gem... you can see the strands through them. I like them still because they look sunny and sweet, and am excited to give them as gifts.

The necklace is very pretty. The gold looks a little fake (garish), but it is acceptable. I would still buy it again.

When I opened the box, I thought it would be a little larger, but my daughter is dainty, and this was a gift for her birthday. It looks beautiful on her, and she loves it. I am not disappointed at all, and would recommend this to any girl.

My favorite gemstone pendant that I wear all the time. Has glorious pastel gemstone colors that go with most everything I wear. Bought a second pendant as I wasn't sure that the colors would stay bright. Haven't need to change as the original pendant is just a beautiful as when I first wore it. Will give the second pendant away as a gift. Great investment, at an excellent price!

I was afraid this pendant might not look as good in reality as it did in the photo, but I was extremely pleased when I got it! The stones are actually larger than I expected! Each stone is very clear and the colors are really nice. As a matter of fact, I only wish the chain were a little thicker; it looks too delicate for the pendant. Not a biggie- I can use another chain. Really an excellent value! I'm tempted to buy several more to have on hand for gifts.

I got the earrings and decided to try the necklace for me. I just loved the earrings, when the necklace arrived, my daughter loved it. I got two more for the coming year's birthday presents for my daughter and daughter-in-law. They are darling. I got the silver. I would recommend them for all ages.

If you are considering this peice, stop debating and by it. This is one of the most impressice pendants I have ever seen at this price. The stones have a beautiful color and are very well balances as they are displayed intellegently in the mounting. The colors are perfect and make an eye catching peice. This is an excellent gift for some one you really care for, it's ellagent beauty will bring tears to their eyes. It is a very nice size and a bright sparkeler. Diamonds may be a girls best frind but she will fall in love with this.

This one went back, the stones are very small, pin head size. They do have color and the mounting was nice but I don't thing a lady would think it was an impressive peice. I would suggest it for a girl in the age bracket of 9 to 14. It would be a nice little keep sake for her and being real stones it will impress her friends as long as they didn't get diamonds.

love the necklace, however, when I initially took it out of the bag the chain broke and I had to take it to 2 jewelers to get it fixed.
