Rated 4 out of 5 by mkfallon Festive but a little clunky
1. This necklace looks true to the product shot in colors. A cluster of polished black / silver beads with a blue crushed velvet ribbon.
2. What I like: Instantly elevates an outfit. Unique. It's not all black (which I thought it was originally but the blue and silver contrast give it just enough to be different). Feels like it would be perfect for the holidays - good amount of sparkle. Not flat - has dimension. Seems well-made and sturdy.
3. What I'm not crazy about: The bib is deceptively smaller than it looks. The three upper beads that are on the left and right align vertically with the ribbon when you tie it, so the actual bib is only about 2" across (i.e. all the beads are heavily front-centered and more "squashed" than it looks in the picture). So I wish the cluster was a little more horizontally spread out. As it is, you have to keep the ribbon fairly long to balance otherwise the bib looks "too clunky." The ribbon itself is a little hard to tie - it's thin, feels more papery in texture so it twists and turns a little more than you would want it to.
4. It's not magnificent enough to justify it as a "must have now" purchase for me, but I think the design is lovely/interesting and will keep an eye on it for later.

Rated 1 out of 5 by leighsy worst purchase ever!!!
nobody could seriously wear this necklace for long because it is like wearing a large rock...further the beads seem to be lumped tightly together in a most unattractive way...going back
