I purchased this necklace for my labour day weekend wedding, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
I would say, however, that the quality isn't exactly what you would expect for the price. One of the "leaves" had broken off during shipment since it seems to have rattled around in the box a bit, but the customer service was very helpful, and since I didn't have time to exchange it before my wedding, they gave me a discount on the piece right away to make up for he damage. the necklace was still wearable, and was absolutely beautiful. Since it is woven, you can shape it to sit exactly how you want. The pearls are genuine, and the whole piece is just so unique. I recieved so so so many compliments, and it was my favourite piece from my wedding day.
There is nothing else qute like this out there!

Gorgeous & unique
I recently purchased this gorgeous necklace, and complementary hair pin, when BHLDN had a pop-up in the Philly Anthro store. This necklace looks much better in person, the large freshwater pearls are irregular in shape, size, and tone adding to the beauty of this piece.
I also love the flexibility of this design. With a few gentle bends you can mold this necklace to your body, creating an even tighter look than is pictured. The construction of this necklace is so lightweight, it's really comfortable to wear.
In person, you can see the variety of colors in the Swarovski crystals & glass beads - there are some with an amber hue, others more pink, iridescent, clear, or milky. At first I was worried about the brassy yellow-gold look, but I have a medium complexion and it almost disappears on my skin tone.
Both pieces I purchased came in beautiful Justin and Taylor boxes with latching closures. I think the price is excellent, a real value for the quality of the product.

Even more beautiful in person
This necklace is just so gorgeous--even more so in person. Everyone asked me where I got my jewelry from and complimented me on this necklace. I is just the right amount of delicate, romantic, and vintage all in one. Only thing I wish is that the pearls were real (especially at this price)! But I have no regrets about buying this piece.

beautiful and unique
I totally disagree with the other review posted about his necklace. I purchased this for my September wedding and it is organic, dynamic and beautiful. There is some slight adjusting required the get it to sit properly, but once you get things where you want them, they stay in place. It is a collar necklace so it sits high on the neck but the use of wire allows for tons of detail with the beads and stones without the weight that you might expect from such a statement piece. It feels durable yet still flexible and comfortable and the beads and stones are securely in place. I think it is going to look so elegant without being boring and I CANNOT WAIT to wear it on my wedding day!!
