My necklace is much darker than it appeared on-line and on the show. The blues are much darker due to more dark matrix, and there is a lot of dark brown and dark purple. The bead ...

Got the hematite and wow it is beautiful. 3 pieces for one price and one shipping. Good deal. Wore one necklace today with a tee shirt and it was a good look. I may have to buy ... (see full review) one more. Santa is good to me.

I purchased two of these during a special, one for myself and one for my daughter.. Couldn't wait for them to come. I am hoping my daughter will like it as she is a jewelry ... (see full review)minimalist. But for me, it was far too fragile as I like to leave my jewelry on (for no reason). I knew it simply wasn't sturdy enough for me. BUT I LOVE THE CONCEPT and wish HSN could manufacture a more sturdy version in TECHNIBOND or ABSOLUTE. I would buy a couple of them in a minute. I do regret I had to send one back, but it just did not have the durability that I need. Thank you Carol for this unique concept. I think it will look beautiful on my daughter, but I'm simply guessing that she will like it, and I'm basing my opinion on it's appearance not wearability. She has a Jan. 2 birthday, so plenty of time to return if needed. Thanks for your policy HSN !.
All three pieces in this set is truly beguiling. They are a beautiful modern-day homage to the spirit and style of Baroque architecture. This necklace is a lovely choice for someon ...

For those that want JK's big beads, this isn't going to impress. The beads are 5-6mm so not large but they do pop with vibrant blues. Mine are medium to darker (not black) blues ... (see full review)with a good amount of sparkle from the copper matrix. The micro opal beads have good color and fire. I love the arrow head pendant. The micro-opal inlay is well done and has a nice play of color and fire as well. The lapis inlay is also well done and color matched nicely. The piece overall is pretty and mid weight, it is not heavy at all.
I love the shape of the turquoise central stone and its encircling silver mount. The stone is a nice bright blue similar to the pine mountain necklace, with copper matrix. The b ... (see full review)ail/enchancer does snap clip nicely and can be used on other necklaces and I had some reservations at first because when holding the piece looking at it, it tries to rotate to a face down 45 degree angle, but it does lay properly when worn. The smoky quartz beaded necklace is great. A few of the beads are paler but most are that wonderful medium to darkish smoky quartz I love.
the pendant is outstanding. Sleek, clean, modern ss setting flanks the long campitos faceted cab very nicely. There is some matrix visible in the beads but the blue is the domina ... (see full review)nt color. Very nice.

(see full review)nice heft to them so that you really felt you were wearing the real deal. Occasionally, that still happens but not very often. And I sent this back -- along with the bracelet -- because i cannot justify $100 for something that really shouldn't cost more than $15.
These beads are a striking blue-green color. Some variation in hue and inclusion mix is visible in the round beads and along the edges of some of the flat rondels. I like that th ... (see full review)is piece's beads are smaller than many of JK's other pieces. It adds versatility to when it can be worn. The hook/enhancer on mine seems a bit lighter than any of the other JK pieces I've purchased recently and for that reason I bumped it to a 4 star rating.

(see full review)though does lean more to the softer muted hue than the pic shows. The shape is a nice size and the amethysts highly and enhance the green hues very well.

The beads are clayey reds, russet browns, gray greens and some rusty grays; with banding apparent on a few (mine has few of the paler grays as reflected on the website picture). Unique.

(see full review)ed forest green is the best description I can come up with for the dominant colors of the pendant I received; there's some brown, darker color matrix mottling at the base near the peridot enhancer cab but it does not detract from the pendants calm beauty. The beads on my necklace also carry the muted greens, creamy browns and some tans and white swirling. Many of the beads have a translucent glow to them that sort of calls to mind the glow that some of the milky-semi-precious varieties of other stones have.
The picture here is very reflective of what I received. The pendant is cut in such a way to show the banding of the malachite extremely well. Simple, sturdy, clean SS mount and b ... (see full review)ail slides nicely over the very colorful beads. This piece has a comfortable weight to it when in hand but it doesn't make it uncomfortable to wear. I did purchase two of these, one for me, one to gift, but the receiver to be has now changed their mind about it so one is coming back (though that pendant isn't as eye-catching as the one I'm keeping).
The color of the pendant sort of reminds me of some of the old pale green jade pieces that folks used to have around. Regardless, this stone is still very eye catching. The marbl ... (see full review)ing within the stone adds to its beauty and character. The SS mounting for this piece is well done; the scroll work design enhances the piece nicely. I also like the size of the beads in this strand. Smaller, yes, but no reduction in color.

The piece is still very pretty but I'm still going to have to be careful which colors I wear it with so to not to have it appear washed out. I was surprised to like the beads though after I got it out and examined it. They are not as overly long as they appear on tv and the pendant is nicely finished as well.
I have to agree with Alice. WOW!. This is a breathtaking piece. Every bead on my strand has shine and opalescence and fire galore. Simple. Elegant. Classic. I know some folks ... (see full review) are slamming it because these are not Jay's normally large beads but I think the smaller size is more fitting for the character of the Ethiopian opals.

I also wear the pendant on smokey quartz necklaces and chains with pieces of smokey on them. The necklace I wear with the pemdant it comes with but also with a large SB pemdant and complete set of have that have a combination of smokey and turquoise with the bronze.
