I ordered this necklace in black. The beads are not onyx black, but a very dark charcoal grey. They will definitely work with blacks, and the have great luster. But the big surprise was that not only did I get the necklace ordered, I received a second on with much smaller beads, and a lovely pair or matching earrings. I'm sure I'll get a lot of use from the necklaces, since their length makes them very versatile. The earrings, not so much since I don't have pierced ears, but they'll make a great gift fora friend.
i ordered the ring because i wear mostly silver items and wanted to expand my collection. i was take aback just a bit by how the ring looks in person....it has a bit more "rocker-biker" look to it. the black detail under the "B-B" raised area makes the ring look darker, but it is a pretty piece. more for blue jeans and black t-shirt day than black suit day.
I absolutely love this stunning piece! It is much more brilliant in person then it appears in the photo. The stone's colors compliment eachother & my skin tone. The first time I wore it, I received so many compliments. It's a versatile piece that can be worn dressed up or down. You will not be disappointed!!!
