Factory embellished rope necklace (C7208, $64.50) comes in crystal (white rope), pale pebble & rose petal. This is a scaled down version of a retail necklace.
Pale pebble – I was very interested in this one because I think it will look good with last year’s embroidered windowpane top in pale aloe (Instapic). The weight and quality feel like a factory item. This isn’t a bad thing. I’m just stated my observation. I do think it will work with the top and other neutrals. I debated getting it, but passed. I have so many costume jewelry items and have been wearing fewer of them as of late. I just haven’t felt like putting them on. As far a this necklace, I think I would’ve been swayed more if the gold parts weren’t so dull.
Rose petal – I wasn’t attracted to this color combo online, but I liked it irl. The black offers more contrast to the gold pieces, making them look brighter and not so dull.
Factory crystal teardrop necklace (C7826, $36.50) comes in kiwi and crystal (pictured). This one is on the dainty side, but didn’t feel cheapie cheap. It’s simple and nice enough on its own. I can see mixing this with other retail or factory pieces.
Factory geometric collage necklace (C7206, $64.50) only comes in white (pictured). This is a scaled down version of a retail necklace. If you like pieces that aren’t as statement-y as others, this is up your alley. You could probably mix it nicely with another necklace. This one also had a factory feel to it. Again, not a bad thing. It just doesn’t have the weight of the retail pieces.
Factory crystal-lined scallop necklace (C7770, $42.50) comes in antique gold. I love the scallops/half moons. The crystal detail is a really nice touch. Another one that felt factory-ish, but not like cheap tin.
