This chain is gorgeous even if worn as is. When I was in the store trying them on, I was told to try it with a heart charm to make it look like a Tiffany. I thought, well if I wanted a Tiffany then I would just go buy one. So I went and purchased from Tiffany online and returned it. The Tiffany quality just was not there in either the chain or the charm. I then came back on here and made yet another James Avery purchase. Since finding this company I have purchased many things and have never returned a single piece. I've also never been disappointed in the customer service online or in the store.
No Kidding, It Sparkles!
This necklace is a striking stand alone piece as well as a beautiful backdrop for a pendant; I have worn it both ways. Because of the way the links are put together, it catches the light and creates a sparkly or glittery effect. The links are rather substantial, so not all pendants or charms will have a large enough bale to accommodate the chain slipping through them. The JA "Charm Holder Pendant" solves this dilemma. Its bale does accept the chain and then you can slip whatever pendant or charm you wish onto the holder. I have also worn the JA Sunburst Pendant directly on the chain as that particular piece has a bale that is very generous. I personally have the 24" length, but I have no doubt that the other lengths would be just as versatile - in fact, I imagine they would be lovely worn together. This is definitely a "keeper."
