I saw a picture of this necklace and fell in love with it - it's so beautiful, and the design is unique and one of a kind. I've had mine for a little over a year and consider it a great buy, especially because I always get compliments on it and it continues to shine and glitter with no hint of tarnishing or turning my skin green (the metal is quite nice in quality). However, I do not think this necklace is for everyone. Consider these before you buy: 1.) The chain is much much too short - it wouldn't fit around my neck at all and is choker length. Be prepared to buy a longer chain (and a fancier looking one if you plan to wear this piece with more professional or evening wear). 2.) The "Peacock Blue" pearl choice is actually a gray color with a minute hint of purple in it. I was aware of this before ordering, and was quite pleased with the gray color I received (it matches all my other grey pearl jewelry, but others might not be so pleased). 3.) Looking at the picture left me to expect a perfectly cylindrical coil in the structure of the pendant. This is not the case. The spiraling metal is actually in a more compressed shape, as if it was perfectly cylindrical and was pressed to lie flat. This bothered me at first (I was expected a perfect swirl, after all) but I ended up being thankful for it because the pendants actual shape is designed to lie flat against the body and looks more aesthetic than a real cylinder shape ever would have. 4.) Even though I love the design of this pendant and am quite fond of this purchase, I actually find it difficult most of the time to match this necklace to other jewelry pieces such as earrings and bracelets - the shape is so unique, in fact (and in contrast to the normal use of gray pearls I have found and like, which are more curly and soft filigree designs rather than this sharp, tornado like swirl) that complimentary design styles is hard to come by. Considering the abundance of grey pearl jewelry, however, I manage. Overall, four stars. A wonderful and unique piece that will surely get tons of compliments. However, expect a different color if ordering "Peacock Blue" and be prepared to invest extra money in a new chain.
The pendant is very nice but the chain is too flimsy. I received a tangled up chain that I discovered was broken when I untangled it. You will have to plan on buying a new sturdier chain for the pendant and factor that additional cost into the overall price. Think of the price of this chain as only for the pendant. I returned it because the chain was broken and I did not want the additional cost of buying a new chain.
The pendant is bigger than I expected. The end of the pendant is too long and pointy that popped my chest multiple times... it wasn't hurt but just uncomfortable. I would recommend use a shorter necklace to avoid the problem. It comes with a 18" and I would use a 16" on myself. Other than that, the pendant looks elegant and nice.
I love this pendant , well made and cand wear it everyday or out on the town. The pearl is not peacock blue- more of a dark charcole as the picture shows

I ordered two of the white pearl necklaces for gifts. They are really pretty and I'm excited to give them as gifts. The chains are a bit short, but both ladies are very slender, so it won't be a problem

The peacock blue was more of a dark green...It seems as though many on here have received different colors than indicated. The pearl was flat not round. the pearl was scratched. Low quality, would not recommend. I was so excited about how cool it looked online :(
- Did the image onsite match the product? No
- How is the quality of the product? Not very good
This pendant is fabulous!! I ordered one years ago for myself (which I still wear constantly and has held up great) and have friends that are constantly raving over it....so this year I got them their own for Christmas. I'm so excited to give it to them! The pearl is a good size and it's a very cool design...always catching someone's eye! I work for a fine jewelry store and when I wear it, people are always asking me if we have that pendant in the store for them to buy! Highly recommend it!!
I purchased four of these for the bridesmaids in my wedding. I ordered the version with the white pearl, and I have to say these pieces looked fantastic on my girls! The chain looks very short at first appearance, and I thought the end looked sharp and pointy! No one was poked or injured by the necklace, though. =) The pendant will hang a couple of inches below the throat, so it is definitely longer than a choker but not a lengthy chain by any means. If you prefer it to be a longer, you could always thread the pendant onto another chain. My girls loved these necklaces (and I wish I'd picked one up for myself)!
I ordered this for my Maid of Honor. The "peacock blue" pearl would have been a perfect match to the color theme. When it arrived in the mail I opened it up to take a look. They should have called it "peacock green." Other than the color not being true to the description it is a very pretty necklace. She liked it and wore it to the wedding anyways, which looked really good with her dress. The length of the chain is short, but it works well with the style.
I bought this for myself to wear with casual clothes. It's pretty. I'm petite so the chain was the perfect length. I was concerned that the pearl would fall off because it didn't look very secure, but I've owned this necklace for over 6 months now and it still looks as good as the day I got it. Would definately recommend this necklace.
