This peridot and pearl necklace is absolutely beautiful! The first time I wore it a friend of mine, who makes jewelery, stopped me to admire it. Besides being beautiful I love the fact that it is very light weight. After wearing a necklace for a few hours it sometimes begins to feel heavy and annoy me. Not this one! The only negative aspect of this necklace is the clasp. It appears to be kind of low quality and is silver colored. I preferred a more attractive gold colored clasp so I actually went to a local bead shop and bought one. It was a simple fix and now the necklace is perfect.
This necklace is not necessarily 'waterfall imagery". It is very pretty but it not the clean and fresh lines shown in description. It is pretty though. I was looking for clean white and green,but I got darker white pearls and darker green peridots. Along with the dark brass color it is not "waterfalll like" but it is still pretty. I like, but not what I wanted.
Overall very happy with purchase. Necklace very delicate and the peridots were forest green not the brillant green as depicted in picture and what you think of when you think of peridots. Daughter very happy with gift. Packaging was very nice--didn't have to wrap gift.
I loved this necklace. However, it is a little long on me. I don't know if there is a way to shorten it, but I still kept it because I love it. I have never been a big fan of my birthstone, but I love the raw stone and the pearls together. Just keep in mind that if you have a long, skinney, neck it will hang alittle low.
my birth stone is period and I love green. but this neacklace did not thrill me as I hoped it would. the thread is not a nice color and the fastner is silver but the threads are a cheap looking gold color. I expected more pearls. It is OK, and I love buying world stock stuff and helping the people make a living. I expected a WOW and did not get it. This is the first time I have been truely disappionted with something from overstock.com.
I loved the necklace but one of the strings was proportionately longer than the rest and I returned it. They need to add a neutral category to the recommend section. That was the only flaw with the necklace and I tried to make it work but I just couldn't get it to look right.
This is a delightful, light confection. Looks great over turtleneck for winter, and i suspect will look even better in summertime, directly on skin. The colors of the peridot and pearls together with the brass threads is quite unique, and beautiful. The piece is very light in weight, so easy to wear. I love it!
This is a stunning piece of jewelry...however, it does not lie flat. It tends to 'bunch up' around the neck. It would be better if the ends were on some kind of bar to hold the individual strands in place to lie flat. I'm trying to decide whether to send it back because it's so pretty, but I'm not sure I'd wear it very often because of the way it lies on the neck. That's why I gave it only four stars, because of the lack of foresight in the design.
Since this was a gift for an out-of-state friend I did not see it; however, she called me and absolutely LOVED IT! She could'nt stop raving how beautiful and unusual the design of the necklace was. She was born in August so peridot was perfect. I WAS VERY PLEASED.
I wanted a colorful string of beads for my casual summer outfits and Cool Shower fits perfectly. I was particularly on the lookout for something green to wear with my white and khaki linen outfits. The semi-precious gemstones are sparkly and colorful. They catch the summer sunshine and are so fun to wear, they add the needed color to many of my summer linens and cottons.
