This 14K Gold Toscano Bead 18" Necklace marks the Canadian launch of an Italian-made piece that you won't find at retail anywhere else. Exclusive to The Shopping Channel, the look of this necklace is very stylish and part of the enduring high polished bead trend that goes back to the glamourous 1960s. The golden beads are elegant, chic, rich and opulent without being over the top; marking a Euro-chic trend that exudes Florence, Rome and the "Bella Vita" of the Italian people.

This necklace was made with the breakthrough process of Dolce Vita Technology. The resin is metalized with copper and other materials which bind to the resin completely and by means of electrolysis, 24K gold is deposited on to the entire surface of the piece. The combination of the two processes allows for the 14K gold to remain firmly attached to the piece, adding to its durability while the ten beads are completely inserted into the chain by hand.

A must for every jewellery wardrobe – the positioning of the links on the chain allows for maximum sparkle, making this necklace completely breathtaking!

• 14K gold (average gold gram weight is 3.00)
• (10) 7mm round shaped, gold beads
• The necklace measures approximately 18" in length
• The necklace has a lobster clasp
• Nickel free
• Country of Origin: Italy

Do not buy this item

By Extremely disappointed

from Sask.

Very poor quality, suggested that it be removed from web site, broke the second time I wore it,
Wish I would have read the reviews before I purchased it.

Very flimsy

By Love Jewellery

Silver Reviewer

I ordered the yellow gold necklace when it was a showstopper. The entire piece was so light that I felt that I did not get my moneys worth out of this purchase. It was immediately sent it back.

Gold Wears Off in Few Months of Wear

By VB

from Coquitlam, B.C.

Silver Reviewer

Don't buy this because you think it is gold, therefore you will have it for many years. Very pretty when you first get this item. Clasp is small but I had no problem with fastening it. My problem is that the Pink gold colour has worn off on two of the balls. Feels rough to the touch and is noticeable. One is quite bad. I will probably take it to the jewelers to remove the two pieces and see how well the rest stay shiny. The company representative claimed that it was not a thin plating over the silicone. I strongly disagree with that statement. I've had costume jewellery last much longer without signs of wear.

This is a re-Review and not a good one!

By Luvs Jewelry

from Brampton, Ontario

Silver Reviewer

This is a re-review of my original - wore it for the second time today; could barely get it done up as one of my nails broke and I had a hard time getting the chain opened and threaded. Then when I went to remove it the chain broke. For the sake of saving a little money, mfrs need to realize that some clasps are soo small that they simply cannot be done up by one person AND SOME OF US ARE ALONE!! Too late to send back - now I have to pay to get a larger clasp put on it. Solution - little larger chain or larger lobster clasp. We would pay a little more if we loved the piece.

Beautiful

By CAROLYN

from Sussex, NB

Gold Reviewer

I bought this some time ago when it was the showstopper for my daughter's birthday in August. After reading the reviews I was somewhat worried. However, my daughter loved it, has no problem with the clasp or chain and it looks beautiful on her.

Wonderful piece

By Jennifer

from Petrolia

Silver Reviewer

I purchased one in white gold and one in yellow gold. I love them. Yes they are delicate and should be treated as such. I agree that maybe you should have a large 0 ring put on it. The value per gram was very significant as I purchased them when they were showstoppers. The necklace glistens in the sun and I have had wonderful compliments especially when wearing matching ball earrings.

Waste of money !

By B

from Toronto

The clasp is so tiny it is very difficult to fasten on. Then the O ring broke off the second time I wore it and all the beads came off - impossible to restring and not worth the expense to try to repair. This was a waste of money!

Too flimsy

By Mare from Barrie

from Barrie, ON

I was a bit leary when I first handled the necklace because it looked so thin and flimsy. I didn't start wearing it right away, as I was deciding whether or not to return it. However, the style was very pretty so I wore it...three times and then the o-ring broke! Even though I was very careful with it, the design is such that it was bound to break. Of course, this happened after 30 days so I'm stuck with a useless piece of jewellery unless I pay someone a ridiculous amount of money to put a spot of solder on it to fix it. In retrospect, I should have gone with my gut instinct and returned it.

Tangles Easily

By Sara

from Toronto

Silver Reviewer

I really like this necklace, and bought one in pink and the other in silver as the Showstopper. I noticed some reviewers felt the chain was too thin - I haven't found that but I have found that it tangles really easily and is very difficult to untangle. Also, the beads are much lighter than I expected.
