Rated 4 out of 5 by NoraJeanne A lovely, well-designed pearl pendant
I purchased this necklace online several months ago and overall, I am quite happy with it. The braided design is unique, the white sapphires are very bright, and I am pleased to say that the sterling silver setting has not shown any signs of tarnishing yet. I was concerned about this initially, since pearl jewelry can be difficult to clean. I can only assume that this piece has been rhodium plated, since mine still looks like new months later.
The only fault I can find with this necklace is in the quality of the pearl. I ordered this necklace more than once, and the peal always arrived in less than ideal condition. I had one necklace that mysteriously arrived without a pearl, and another that arrived with the pearl drilled off center and covered in scratches. I was very disappointed by this, however, my last necklace finally arrived in acceptable condition. The pearl on my current necklace is in good condition, with the exception of a large scuff on the back of the pearl drop (thankfully it isn't noticeable). I was tired of ordering and returning this piece over and over again, and so I settled for it.
This necklace is exactly as shown in the photos above, so I don't feel a need to upload additional photos. I would recommend this pendant if you're looking for an elegant, inexpensive gift. It looks far more expensive than it really is. It's a beautiful piece for weddings and special occasions, but it's also a versatile necklace and isn't too bold or too showy for everyday wear.
