Rated 4 out of 5 by JGroupie Beautiful but...
I really do enjoy this piece, but it catches my hair and pulls it out, leaving stray strands stuck in the necklace. This piece is beautiful though. It catches the light, making it pretty sparkly, and looks fantastic under a button down shirt. I have to wear my hair up when I wear this piece to avoid it snagging and pulling out my hair.

Very disappointed with this piece. I have a lot of Jcrew jewelry that I really love and get many compliments on but this piece is going back. It is very lightweight and inexpensive looking. It looks like I have picked it up in a popular jr's store. It is an expensive piece but does not convey that in anyway. I also bought the earrings and I will be returning those as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by StraightandNarrow Looks pretty, buuuuut...
Looks can be deceiving. While the size, shape, and style are nice and flattering, the materials are lightweight and cheapen this necklace. Staring at it in the case, I was intrigued. When I picked it up to try it on, I was instantly disappointed. And since there is no weight to it, this piece is prone to rolling, flipping, etc., which ruins the look. I own 2 other J Crew necklaces, which are much better quality, so I'm surprised that this made it to retail. Based on some of the other reviews, this necklace may have been made differently when it was first released. However, J Crew did not "stick the landing" on the latest version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TKJ1 Different from last year's version
This is a great necklace however it's different than the version available a year ago. This version's crystals are encased in gold plate vs last year's version which was a darker metal and also a heavier weight resulting in a better piece. It's still nice though and I kept this second piece to wear stacked with the one I already have.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MOMom Was better in the past
I bought the matching earrings to this necklace last year. They are a nice weight and have a attractive vintage gold backing. I am pretty sure J. Crew has changed the make of the Venus Flytrap jewelry. I recently purchased this matching necklace and the gold was shiny and brassy looking, and there was not much weight to it. The gold metal is not at all like the vintage gold on my earrings. The necklace looked cheap and not worth the asking price so I sent it back.
