I’m not completely sure if I like this necklace as a necklace but I definitely think it’s impressive. It’s also definitely enjoyable to look at just as an object.
You see my point? It looks sort of like a scrunchie with little plastic beads, or a necklace that a very fancy My Little Pony would wear. But it’s made of real, faceted aquamarine and morganite beads, with a large, cushion-shaped morganite clasp.
The colors are certainly beautiful. I can’t help but wonder if it’s heavy to wear. It sort of says nutty old lady to me…but I do look forward to being a nutty old lady and I think this could be styled fabulously by someone who knew what they were doing. What do you think?
