Product Description

NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, works together with talented artisan designers around the world to produce stunning, keepsake treasures. Our mantra is to spread global happiness, so rest assured - we'll do everything we possibly can to ensure you're a happy customer.

About this item: Cultured freshwater pearls glisten with elegant allure in a design from Thailand's Sasina. The pearls are intermingled dyed pink, dyed brown, and dyed yellow. They are threaded by hand on silk core creating the illusion of a flowing river splashing with red-orange glass beads. Necklace measures 16.25" with a stainless steel clasp and a 2" extender chain.

About our Artist: My name is Sasina Leerasawatdiampon. My hometown is located in the north of Thailand where the air is fresh and the landscapes are beautiful. I really love this place. I have an older sister and my parents work with agricultural products. My parents use to have a big garden filled with fruits and flowers which they started out of personal choice. It grew so much they started to sell their produce and be able to make a living from it. This is the kind of environment I grew up in, one were I could walk and admire the beautiful flowers, which I would pick to decorate my room. One day I was trying to get an outfit together for a party I was invited to, so I decided to use some of the flowers as accessories. I made some lovely jewelry with it, and I also wore some on my hair, to the point where I thought I had overdone it, but didn't have time to change. Everyone at the party admired my creations so much, they made me feel like a princess. I craft jewelry with my good friend Busarin, who is also a Novica-featured artisan. I love jewelry so much that the need to adorn my body with it is mandatory. My favorite is the earring, because it is little yet can subtly decorate the wearer. I believe in the power of stones. Before leaving home, I wear an accessory -...

    This necklace is even more beautiful in person than on this page. The wiring is delicate so it is comfortable to wear. It is a nice necklace that can be dressed up or down easily. Also, it comes in a pretty handmade envelope/box, which would be a very nice touch if you were giving it as a gift. My only criticism is that I would like it to be longer. It is the right length for me when I have it fully extended, so this is not a major issue.

    I wasn't sure of this company when I first purchased the product. They said they were "associated with National Geographic" and I checked out the website and was interested in finding one so I ordered it. I love this necklace! The pearls are real, freshwater pearls and the colors are as pictured. It does not feel like a cheap necklace at all.

    The thing that I was most impressed with was the packaging and delivering. The necklace came in a beautiful bag with the Novica logo on it. It also included a small booklet about the necklace - that the pearls are from Thailand and how the necklace is made. It also includes a quote from the designer of the necklace. If you go to the actual Novica website and search "River of Gold" (the name of this necklace) you can actually read a biography of the artist and see a picture. I think this is awesome that this company is supporting artisans around the world and paying fair wages for the products made. I initially purchased this product at a discounted price for an unbiased review but I am so happy I have stumbled onto this company! Their products are beautiful. Amazon has a lot of the jewelry and the website has additional products for home decor, apparel, bags, and more, I will absolutely order more from them. It would also make a great gift as it arrives beautifully packaged and would be something unique!

    This is just so beautiful. I adore pearls, especially colored pearls. This necklace is all different colored pearls, a yellow, brown, beige and pink color. There are seed pearls and pearls of all sizes. All of the pearls are double tied on, so no worries about them breaking off and getting lost. There are also a few colored crystals mixed in for a good shine and flash of color and texture. The necklace has a lobster clasp and can be adjusted with a good extra two inches to play with. So it can be a shorter necklace or a choker style necklace.

    The colors of this design are just so lovely. They all flow and blend so well together and onto each other. I have a pale colored skin and dark brown hair and the colors and design look so good on me. I think this necklace is so cute it would work for every day or nice enough looking to wear to a very special occasion, or an event. Either dress up or dress down with this lovely piece. It seems to be exceptionally well made and comes with a cute little bag when it arrives. I would store hanging though, so it does not tangle.

    I received this at a discount for my honest and unbiased review.
