This is one of the more higher end pieces James Avery offers. I tend to lean toward the hammered or more rustic pieces as we ranch and it fits more into my lifestyle. From the moment I held this, and tried it on I knew that it was going to go home with me. It has a nice reflective look to it in the oval links are heavy and Wadie and they lay nicely on the neck. Another plus, is if you had the bracelet before retired, you can add it to the necklace to make it a longer chain, or you can wrap it around twice and where at layered or as intended you can wear it separately. I like to layer my necklace with other James Avery pieces that I purchased in the past . (please see photos, the second shows itcwithbthe necklace being used as an extender) This is a great every day items, or a signature statement piece . I absolutely love it and would recommend it to any friend or family member.
Had JA add 2 additional links to make necklace 19-22 length which I feel is more versatile. It sits beautifully and not heavy at all. I love this necklace which my family bought for me for Mother's Day.
My husband got me this for my birthday last week. I love it! I can wear it over a collared shirt or adjust it to wear with a scoop neck shirt. My neck is small but it adjusts and looks nice both ways. This looks great with everything. The weight of the necklace is perfect also. The hammered look is so nice. Now I need the earrings!!
I bought this necklace as a treat to myself right before Christmas and it quickly became one of my very favorite pieces of jewelry. I find that I wear it several times a week because it goes with everything. I have received so many compliments on it and have been pleased to share about James Avery jewelry with my friends here in northern California. I just wish that it came in gold!
My boyfriend surprised me with this for our 2 yr anniversary and I absolutely love it. The moment I put it around my neck, I knew this was something I would be wearing A LOT. The craftsmanship is beautiful, as I've come to expect from all JA jewelry, but this piece by far is the most beautifully created piece I've seen. I also love the edgy factor this necklace has too. It's very beautiful, but a little bit cool at the same time. I'm a lucky girl!
Almost Didn't Buy
I almost didn't buy this piece because it has a higher price point than I normally buy. I was really drawn to it, though, so I thought I should, at least, give it a try. And, boy oh boy, am I glad I did!! I LOVE THIS NECKLACE, and I can't believe how often I wear it! It is a PERFECT PIECE that goes perfectly with so many things in my closet! (BTW, I usually wear my hammered Valle earrings with it, and I always feel great--and get wonderful compliments--whenever I am wearing the two.)
