"Like a queen"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

That is how I felt wearing this, so the piece is aptly named. I really thought it was not going to fit me well, but it sits just right. Normally, only shorter length necklaces work for me. This is bold and gorgeous. Ive always lived close to the ocean and the apple green jade reminds me of the sea foam over deep, churning water. I paired it with the Enduring Bloom earrings of the same color by Estuardo Jimenez and the stones match perfectly. I thought the price was a bit inflated until I received it. This is a lot of jade so I would say its justified. My Guatemalan mom loved it (verde manzano is her favorite jade color) and my daughter will grow into it. It looked great on all three of us despite age differences and my skin and hair are a bit darker and my facial features are not as soft. This would look good on anyone, Im sure. If you are on the fence, just buy it. The pictures do not do this justice.

"Delighted"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the first purchase I have received from Novica. The earrings are beautiful and even better quality than expected. There is even a closure hook on the earring so you don t have to mess with a plastic back. They are a nice weight and the jade is a lovely, deep green as pictured. The Jimenez family does not disappoint, highly recommend!
