Perfect accessory to my wedding dress - class & bling all in one!
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
To show how great RTR's service is: as promised, this necklace was delivered with the rest of my order on Thursday night. However, when I opened it up, one of the three pearl strands was broken and the pearls were strewn all over the box. I called RTR Friday morning, after their phone lines opened, and explained the situation. They were able to get a rush delivery of the same necklace to my wedding venue (where I was staying Friday night) and I received it Saturday at 8am in perfect condition!
Now, to the necklace itself. I wanted a statement piece of jewelry on my wedding day and this was perfect (after a little finagling). It was the expected length, as described in the post, but still a little bit long on me (because the top of my strapless dress was a little higher). So, my bridesmaids used a safety pin to make the necklace just a teensy bit shorter and voila - it was perfect. I love the way the flower piece falls slightly off-center. As you may notice in my pictures, the three strands don't exactly fall flat (like they do in RTR's pictures) but overlap a little, giving the classy piece a pop of fun. After reading a couple other reviews, I realized this was probably not the original design of the necklace, but it's a small change that I thought made it better.
It goes perfectly with the same designer's earrings - which are think are a delicate compliment to such a in-your-face necklace.
