I was surprised to see another member write about this gorgeous Swarovski Swan Pendant because I have never seen another living soul wearing 'my' necklace. My beautiful swan pendant was given to me as a Christmas present by a very dear friend and I think is it one of the nicest pieces of jewellery I own.
The necklace and pendant are Rhodium plated and look beautifully shiny whenever I wear it, I use a silver cleaner to buff up the swan occasionally because it is such a shiny piece of jewellery that it really does show all the finger marks up - and believe me, this necklace is so pretty that there will be plenty of finger marks from people picking it up at look closer at the swan.
The chain is around 17 inches long and this means the swan pendant sits nicely just underneath the hollow of my throat, which I think is the perfect length for a necklace of this type and size. The chain itself is rather delicate because the individual links are thin and fine, Swarovski have however joined the links together in an unusual angled manner which adds a little bit of bulk to the chain. I would compare the chain to the thinness of the average necklace you would buy from the Elizabeth Duke counter in Argos.
The swan itself is gorgeous. I have loved swans since I was a child and this is why my friend bought me this particular piece, and I really do love it. It's a very elegant looking swan in a classical pose with curved neck and wings tucked into the body, you cannot actually see any wings but the way the swans body is angled with his tail in the air puts me in mind of wings that have been carefully folded and tucked away.
The crystal detail is very striking I think and when buffed up the round individual crystals sparkle beautifully, especially when I go out at night and the light catches my pendant. The way the crystals are arranged makes the swan look larger and bulkier which helps it to catch the light, I also like the ridged effect they give to the swan which I think is true of most Swarovski items I own. I love the way this swan has an almost antique appearance, putting me in mind of my mother in laws jewellery which she had obtained in the 1930's and 1940's.
Swarovski have engraved their rather prestigious name into the base of the swan and I think it looks good because their name is well known amongst people who know about jewellery, but it does not make the necklace look label grabbing in any way.
Some people may not like how thin this chain is, and I agree one tug from an angry toddler would very possibly break it but this is exactly why I keep this pendant for special occasions. It looks fabulous with my evening clothes and gives a particularly nice effect when I am wearing a sequinned top because it makes me feel so sparkly and feminine.
One thing worth mentioning is the fact that you can adjust the length of the chain on this pendant, although I keep it at its longer length because it seems to sit better on me like this. When my daughter borrowed it she shortened it to almost choker length and it looked stunning on her (much younger and much less wrinkled!) throat. The clasp is simple but secure, it is a lobster claw type which is much easier to open and fasten than the traditional necklace clasps which I cannot use because of the arthritis in my hands.
As I have said this was a gift, but I have just looked online and this Swarovski Swan Pendant will cost between £50 and £55 which I think is excellent value for such a well crafted and beautiful piece of jewellery.
i have always been a big fan of swans, i think they are a beautiful and elegant bird so when i saw this neclace on the swarowski web site i just had to have it.
The neclace this swan pendant is on is rodium plated and made of tiny oval links joined together in opposite directions to give a depth to the neclace which in reality is very thin.I love the way the pendant doesnt just hang at the bottom of the neclace from a loop but is actually attached to the chain and has the chain running through it.
The pendant itself is not thin like you would expect it to be but actually quite thick and has the swarowski name engraved on the bottom of it, the swan is a silver metal rhodium plated which looks very elegant, the crystals are circular clear crystals set beautifully into the metal with just enough sticking out of the top to give the swan depth and allow the light to reflect in different directions giving a beautiful sparkle.The eye of the swan is made of metal but also raised to give depth.
This neclace looks beautiful and looks just as elegant as a real swan does although i would have prefered it on a thicker chain.
