Diamond Necklaces to suite your Nautical side …
Need a timeless gift? This gift-boxed Gem Stone King has a focal piece of a 1/2 inch Bermuda Blue Swarovski crystal on an 18-inch chain. The look is modern but it has decidedly classic overtones, channeling your inner Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn while still being versatile enough a piece to suit an “Au Courant” wardrobe ranging from casual to formal outfits.
If you’re looking for a signature necklace for yourself or a tasteful gift, this piece is an excellent choice because it made of quality materials and superior construction. As a New York City-based diamond wholesaler, Gem Stone King oversees local production to keep costs low while employing old world methods with modern technology. They sell jewelry online directly to consumers. Because of this, they offer a much higher quality item that is typically seen for the price point.
This particular piece uses a Swarovski Crystal Gemstone with a precision-cut as often seen on diamonds to enhances the sparkle and clarity. It is classic and elegant, yet sleek enough to feel modern.
The gem stone is a rounded square with a cut to maximize the sparkle in the light. The stone itself is transparent without blemishes. The Bermuda Blue color is very versatile, vibrant and even.
The center stone is surrounded by a double row of small white crystals that have a great deal of sparkle.
It works with icy pastels, white, deep vibrant blues such as royal and cobalt, as well as neutrals, creams, and linens and even contrasting brights like orange. The clean lines of the necklace look particularly nice with an open neckline.
The Swarovski brand is renowned for creating crystals that have astounding light and sparkle due to their precise cutting methods. Swarovski uses a patented machine to perfect the look of a hand-cut to make crystals of high brilliance like a diamond available for the price of a crystal. Because Swarovski crystals have such a glamorous sparkle, they are frequently used in costumes, bridal wear, and designer gowns.
The spring-ring clasp is sturdy and the stone setting is secure. The cable necklace chain does not catch on delicate fabrics such as silk or satin.
The clasp is marked and the chain is of particular high-brilliance. The focal piece, clasp, and chain are Rhodium plated for high luster and durability.
The pendant comes gift boxed. It makes an ideal gift item for a milestone event or just because for someone special, such as for a bridesmaid gift, a girlfriend, mother or a friend who has a sleek yet elegant style.

This is a piece that looks more expensive when it is worn than it does in the photos. Not a dupe for a Harry Winston diamond necklace by any means, but it does resemble a nice vintage piece as the stones are faceted to reflect a very nice sparkle and it is a vintage style pattern. I got the JM014 style because I thought it had a nice art deco type look and would really give a simple line dress some sparkle.
This is a collar style choker necklace and I like that the pieces are chunked as seen in the advertising photo so that it has better movement and is more comfortable to move around while wearing it than many collar necklaces that don’t have much give to them. When the necklace is actually worn, though, these pieces lay flat on the neck. The brass clasp is secure and snaps shut with a click. The widest part of the necklace is about 1.34″ inches. The size of the rhinestones varies within the pattern which is attractive. I have not had any skin reactions to the base metal used on the back of the necklace.
Upon arrival, one stone had become loose but it was in the box and it easily glued back into place with a tiny dot of crazy glue. So I would recommend checking the necklace before wearing it to make sure that all the stones are secure. The stones were otherwise secure and the back of the necklace is well made, but I did take a star off for this issue because I would be reluctant to give this as a gift without fully inspecting the piece first, and I intend on inspecting the necklace to check for loose stones before each future wearing. I do intend on using and enjoying it, though.
Of note, these are not actual rhinestones, they are faceted acrylic fashioned to look like rhinestones, and they fooled me. That surprises me since I have several modern and vintage rhinestone jewelry pieces, and I REALLY didn’t know they were acrylic until I re-read the item description. I didn’t even realize it wasn’t real rhinestones when I held that rhinestone to glue it back in. But this is a good idea because the necklace is much lighter with the acrylic which does make it easier to wear.
The gift box is attractive and holds the necklace well. With the proviso to inspect for loose stones before giving it as a gift, this would indeed make a nice gift for prom or bridesmaids or a vintage jewelry lover. It really does appear to be a more expensive piece, this is a nice deal.
The artists who work with NOVICA always hit it out of the park when it comes to stunning, unique pieces, but this necklace is a particular favorite of mine.
Dazzling Flower Bloom combines two tonal loves of mine: a Spring-like yellow-green quartz and Autumnal colors that blend together beautifully. When trying to find the perfect outfit to highlight this stunning necklace, I ended up pulling out stacks and stacks of clothes as it matches perfectly with so many colors. The necklace looks like it was custom made for each and every outfit.
The pictures speak for themselves, but there are some features that are particularly outstanding. The quartz centerpiece flower is absolutely breathtaking. While the yellow-green color of the quartz doesnt seem like it would necessarily match with some of the autumnal colors in the necklace, they complement each other so beautifully. I also absolutely adore the clasp: two green orbs that hold the substantial necklace in place securely.
The packaging is worthy of its own praise. The beautiful fabric pouch (with a hand-numbered sticker) comes in a heavy plastic bag, and within the fabric pouch is a plastic bag holding the length of the beaded necklace. Now here is my favorite part: The centerpiece flower is held in a smaller bag so as to not get tangled or damaged by the other pieces. NOVICA takes so much time and care into making sure their pieces arrive in perfect condition.
As you know, NOVICA works with artists throughout the world to produce the stunning pieces they offer. Each piece comes with a small, beautiful mini-book that tells the story, first hand, of the artist. This artist, Nareerat Tansuwansophon, tells one of the most compelling stories I have read of NOVICA artists. She likes to create unique, unusual pieces that really stand out. Unlike many NOVICA artists, she didnt learn her craft from her parents, in fact, her mother died shortly after she was born. When she developed an interest in the jewelry craft, she bought several books and studied hard. She spent a great deal of time honing her craft and individual style until she perfected her trade.
She now offers work to over 30 local women, many of which have children. She allows them to take work home so they can be with their children and make money while making jewelry. She also offers less taxing tasks to older women so that they can make money. Isnt Nareerat a kind-hearted individual?
I absolutely adore this necklace and plan on wearing it frequently Spring through Fall. It is breathtaking!

I received this item in exchange for my unbiased review.
I was drawn to the Blue Muse necklace because I like to wear blues such as cobalt and royal, but these deeply saturated shades can sometimes be difficult to accessorize, so I like the idea of a mixed gemstone piece. And I really like the saturated color of a gemstone because it adds nice color to an outfit and some interest and can be dressed up or down. This particular necklace pairs nicely with this Italian dress I am wearing in the photo with a bare scoop neckline. Iâ€™ve been trying to find just the right accessories for several months and I really like the look of this choker because not only do the colors match, but also there is texture to the necklace, which seems right with the dress fabric. And in looking in my closet at my general wardrobe, there are several other items that could match these colors amongst both my dressy clothes and my more casual going to brunch or museum type outfits that just need a little character.
About the Necklace
The gemstone pattern is about ½ inch wide, which is not large enough to be clunky yet it is also not too thin, so it is dainty and ladylike but still enough to make a statement and be noticed without being overpowering. I like the combination of the blues, the two colors play the saturation of the hues of the other stone nicely, and there is generous use of the gemstones.
It is basically choker length. There is an optional 2 inch extra extender “drop” for the length to accommodate neck size or make the necklace a bit longer if needed. You can wear this hanging down the back of the neck for interest, you can extend the length of the necklace, or leave it off entirely.
It is a silver plate base, hand tied stonework.
The necklace has lapis lazuli (the darker blue color) and calcite (the lighter blue color) gemstones. The lapis lazuli stones are two shapes of gemstone. The calcite, as seen in the photos, are clustered.
There is a lobster claw clasp, so I am not afraid of the clasp coming undone. But, and this is the one and only thing I sort of dislike, it is a difficult clasp to secure on oneself because the eye of the loop is small. Since this is a handmade item, perhaps that is just mine. If you find this to be the case with yours as well, just give it a little check just to make sure the clasp is closed after you put on the necklace.
The irregularity of stones adds interest and texture, but they are not damaged, chipped or scratched gemstones. The irregularity does not seem uneven, the stones are of the same size but appear crafted.
The thread is dyed silver, which I like on the clusters to have a hint of metallic and not bare white or clear thread. It looks richer and does not distract from the beadwork itself.
The lapis lazuli gemstones appear to be lightly buffed but not a fake or shellac type of shiny
This particular necklace comes in an attractive patterned and thick jewelry pouch that will keep the necklace safe from scratches while stored away and is also an attractive bag that makes for nice packaging if giving this necklace as a gift, and inner plastic bags.
This is a versatile piece that would match the style of women of various ages, useful as a gift.
I received the Novica print catalog for years and always like seeing the unique, handmade items on their website. I enjoy owning items that are distinctive, use quality materials, are well-crafted, and not the exact same thing that everyone else is wearing.
I own a few Novica jewelry pieces and artisan glassware, the handcrafted quality is always evident and Novica makes it a company mission to treat their artists well. Each piece has a small autobiography of the artist, which is interesting to read their stories of how they came to hone their artisan skills and often some details about customs from the region they live, as well as some information about the materials used in the making of the artisans item, such as if those gemstones hold special meaning, or if they are indigenous to the region. Many of the artists are women.
