Rated 3 out of 5 by InaG Great idea ... but a disappointing product
After months of lusting, I finally decided to splurge. Alas, it was a disappointment. The necklace is actually a 28-inch string of pearls, with two 16-inch ribbons - the pearl portion is only 50% of its length. It works as one long strand, but it does not allow for many combinations - the pearl section is too short for a 2-strand necklace and the ribbon is too long for some other combinations. The grosgrain is relatively inflexible, it un-laces easily and makes the bow look bulky. It doesn't look elegant, especially when I put the bow on the side, mostly due to the excess ribbon. Black satin would have been a way better choice for the ribbon and would have made the necklace more stylish - right now it looks a bit cheap. On the positive side, the pearls are nice, they are the same size, but they are not large which also contributes to the overall impression of a cheap accessory. Alas, this would have been one of my all-time favorites, but it will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Belgianfashionlover Perfecting casual chique
Love love love this string of pearl with black ribbon! I wear it day and night, on linen shirts in the weekend and on suits or office dresses at work. I like to make it seem an afterthought, and it does the trick in making whatever you wear look polished. With or without make-up! The extra length is great, and I wrap it several times around my wrist on occasion as well.

This is beautiful and elegant. I am not an expert in gems. But these pearls look so nice and they are not all exactly alike, that is what makes it look even more special. You know like raw silk or khadi cloth having an odd thread here and there which gives it so much texture, this piece is like that! I look forward to wearing these as casual chic or dressy. Love, love,love this!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Poodle Not Great
I purchased 2 of these, one as a gift and one for myself and the quality on both were not great. The grosgrain tie was really light weight and so wrinkled that I would have had to iron the tie to make it look presentable. The pearls were also poorly strung with gaps in some of the knots and very tight on others. It looked so sweet and I wanted to love them, but I was really disappointed. Unfortunately I'll be returning. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoloresRed BEST PEARL NECKLACE...EVER
I have owned this set of pearls for several years and they are my mainstay. The ribbon helps adjust the length but also lends a very sexy or preppy or modern or fancy flair to the necklace. I get compliments every time I wear it. Great quality. I iron the ribbon if it gets wrinkled. The pearls are lovely. This is one of the best jewelry purchases I have ever made.
