This was very pricey and, if it hadn't been so gorgeous, I would have returned it right away but, it is STUNNING. I ordered the labradorite and I probably would have paid double for this. It is beautiful. Mine does move along the necklace, I need to move it gently but it does move.PETERSMOM, MOWas this review helpful? 2 out of 3 found this review helpful
Exquisite Buddha Necklace
I think the labradorite Buddha is exquisite. Mine has a lot of fire and is well-made. I can also move my Buddha pendant around the necklace to double it. Just moving the Buddha over the flat disc labradorite beads slowly. I will be wearing this mainly in the fall and winter though, because I like small and lighter jewelry in the summer, and feel it will look better with my turtlenecks and Cashmere sweaters when it is much cooler weather than now! This piece is a bit higher priced, but I did get the sale price and feel it was a fair for this piece. Just like Carol said, I am leaving mine out on my jewelry box when I'm not wearing it because it is so beautiful and catches the light. I have many Rarities pieces now and this is one great necklace. I love it!Dingo3, GAWas this review helpful? 4 out of 4 found this review helpful
Excellent carving of the Buddha. The quality of the labradorite is amazing. The color play in my piece is beautiful. Thanks Carol for another piece which I feel is well worth the price. My request is to make the pendant bales all enhancers to be more versatile but this would not prevent me from keeping an exceptional piece.joca, CAWas this review helpful? 3 out of 3 found this review helpful
I splurged and bought this for my 65th birthday. It is beautifully made and a very special piece.vermillionmar, SDWas this review helpful? 0 out of 1 found this review helpful
So, so beautiful!
I am delighted with this purchase. The carved labradorite buddha is exquisite--it glows and flashes in whatever light i'm in. The necklace is made up of fully carved disks, not chips, as i sort of feared. the gold rim around the base of the buddha is lovely. One caveat: The diamonds are so minute as to be totally dispensable. Bump up the point size a bit and perhaps use fewer? or skip. not worth whatever they added to the price.1Candy62, FLWas this review helpful? 6 out of 6 found this review helpful
