Got this item in a 16” and I absolutely love it. It’s a gorgeous piece to display a charm as a focal point. I have not had any issues of it moving too much. But love that I can also wear it alone. It’s a wonderful addition to my other pieces.
If they would figure out a way so that the charms did not slide this would be an amazing necklace. When I wear it with a charm, it slides off the bar and the necklace is totally skewed. Not attractive. First and only thing I’ve purchased from James Avery that I did not love!!

Okay after I bent it
I got the bar necklace during the free charm event. It is too straight to stay in place. I pitched the ends to make it curve more. I also added spacers from another jewelry company so all my charms are viewable. Please add spacers. I dont own any * stuff but someone said they spacers. I think this would be awesome to have to be used on all necklaces. I know many people like myself wear more than 1 charm on a chain. These get lost and not viewable. Spacers would make them all viewable. Thanks!

sideways sliding charm
This necklace does best with NO charm. If you have one charm or more, the charm(s) NEVER stay on the bar. They slide to one side and your necklace is crooked at all times. I love it without charms, but I have charms that I want to hang, not have permanently attached to bracelet.

I tried to love it
I wanted to love this. It's beautiful and looks great with my charms, when they stay on the bar. Unfortunately, the charms spend more time off the bar than on. I have larger/heavier charms on this necklace but it still moves. I also don't like that the charms fall behind one another. I've been asking for a spacer for months. I've finally just given up on this necklace. I tried to love it...

Received as a gift from my hubby. He also gave me the Heart of My Heart pendant which hangs beautifully. Those that complain should try a heavier charm. Mine is also the 16” necklace. Plan to add the Blessed and Family charms.
I bought this earlier with a Dachshund charm for my daughter for a Christmas present. I didn’t think that the charm would move around so much. It does look a little silly, cock-eyed with the charm lodged between the chain and the slide. Is there a solution? I considered other charms for balance, but I’m not sure that it would help.

I recently purchased this necklace. I wear it on its own as well as with one or two charms and have had no problem with it. It is actually quite sturdy. I love the bar as it's quite shiny, textured and sturdy at the same time. Will quickly become a favorite, I have no doubt.
I love this necklace on its own - is there a chance you would make it in gold??
- Hi Nancy! We're so happy to hear you love this design! We will pass along that there is interest in a gold version! - James Avery Team
Bad charm necklace
Terrible for charms. The charms do not stay on the bar and it looks bad. Don’t buy for charms

Not JA quality!!!
Love the idea of this necklace but it’s a VERY POOR QUALITY AND…it does NOT stay centered on your neck! Mine and ALL others I’ve seen being worn get cock-eyed / wonky leaving your charms to hang on the chain! MOST DISAPPOINTED in the poor quality though!

This necklace was given as a freebie with charm purchase during May. Mine turned black within two weeks. I took it in to be cleaned twice and the same thing happened again within a week. I can’t believe James Avery considers this representative of their jewelry
- Hi Peggy, we're sorry to hear that and understand your frustration. Sterling silver can oxidize when exposed to certain chemicals in the air, as well as lotions, soaps, and other substances. We suggest storing it so it is protected from these elements when it's not being worn to help prevent it from happening. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! - James Avery Team
Modern and clean
I got this to wear without charms and it is great! So comfortable, doesn’t move around or catch in your hair. The 14” is a choker but the 16” is a great very short necklace. Looks good layered with other stuff, but wouldn’t recommend with charms. Thinking about getting the 18” and layering two together!
Won’t stay centered
Charms & crescent slide to the left and right - they don’t stay centered

This piece is versatile. It can be worn with or without pendants and looks lovely both ways. The only thing that bugs me is that the trinkets don't stay in place, but that is common with most necklaces anyway. Would not recommend for many trinkets at a time.
Love this necklace.I wanted something I can wear with charms or alone.Its beautiful!I get so many compliments on it.I mostly wear with 2 charms.
My new favorite piece!
This necklace is gorgeous! I love that there is a 14" option. This necklace is stunning on its own- the hammered texture is so shiny, and it looks great with a dainty charm.
This necklace is beautiful but the charms don’t stay on the crescent. The crescent would be on the side of my neck and the charms just hanging on the chain. I’m giving it 2 stars because it is so pretty. I would suggest wearing it without charms. I returned it because what I wanted was a charm holder necklace.
