The next Jenna's Pick up for discussion is J.Crew's Silk-Ribbon Chain-Link Necklace (item #14489). It retails for $98, and the Tropical Aqua color is on sale for $69.99. J.Crew describes the necklace as such:
It'll turn even the simplest ensemble into spectacular. 16 lightly distressed brass chains (tropical aqua chain is specially hand-dyed to match color of ribbon)—they're perfectly placed to create a most flattering drape—with an exquisite silk charmeuse ribbon that can be styled several different ways. Even our designer owns one. Silk charmeuse ribbon is delicate by nature and will fray over time creating a lovely vintage look that we love. Ribbon-tie closure (60"L x 4"W). Import. Length: 36".I love this necklace. The Shell and aforementioned Tropical Aqua colors are on my wishlist. It also comes in Black.
This necklace is very delicate and feminine looking, and I love the touch of the floppy silk ribbon. The thing about the necklace that concerns me is that the ribbon is supposed to fray over time. If I were going to pay $98, or even $69.99 for a chain-link necklace, I wouldn't want it to purposely fray, but maybe that is just me!
The website also has a picture of the necklace on a mannequin, and while the many chains look delicate enough, it also looks a bit overwhelming - it seems like there are less chains in the individual color pictures.
What do you think? Do you like this necklace? Do you own it? Which colors do you like?
