This is a necklace for my mom that has yet to be given to her, so I'm not sure what her reaction will be but I do think this is a nice piece for the price. But the last part is the key: for the price. My mom is a collector of pieces similar to these and I must say this looks more like a cheaper version - one for every day use that you wouldn't be to upset if something happened to it. Still it is a nice piece, very colorful and fun and would recommend it. Just know if you are buying it as a nice statement piece it may not make the statement you were hoping for.
I bought several of these necklaces as Christmas presents and they were received with much appreciation. I felt good about buying them, to help the Kenyan artisans, and great about giving them, since they're lovely! The beads are intricate and varied in design, and the multi-string design looks great with lots of different necklines.
The necklace is pretty and has great colors but is way less elegant than it looked in the photo. The shells are lovely, but to my taste, don't work well with the beads and add an amateur touch. This necklace would be cute for a teenager but not substantial enough for someone like me (over 40!) so I'm returning it.
I think that every color in the universe is represented here! The necklace is actually three separate strands of varying length, with one hook-and-eye closure in the back. It (of course!) matches any clothing in a solid color, and it is very flattering. I love it!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Beautiful beads strung into a beautiful necklace. High quality.
These beads are beautifully hand-crafted, comfortable to wear and to simply touch. My only "complaint" is that it is collectively much darker than I had expected and therefore isn't as useful for the purpose I had had in mind.
The necklace is delicate yet quite a conversation piece and addition to anyone's jewelry wardrobe. Very unique and not just the "run of the Mill' costume jewelry. It's classy and easily worn with whatever a person has chosen to wear.
