Loren Hope is supposed to be classy stuff for costume jewelry. I felt let down to receive this necklace in "crystal" and discover the stones are not glass (as stated) but plastic. The feel is plastic (light and warm, not cold and heavy), and worse, the sound is plastic. The stones are not well-set, they are slightly uneven in some of the facets, and with movement there is an slight "tink" sound. There is also some rattling of the chain I cannot figure out and the clasp is cheap and awkward.
At a quick, undiscerning glance it looks nice, and the design is pretty, but it does not look like a quality piece of statement jewelry. It boasts being made in the USA, but is just like the stuff that comes over from you-know-what distant land.
Would return if I paid full price, but I saved up points for it and got very cheaply. Still, I paid more than I believe it's worth. Not sure I will trust Birchbox jewelry in the future, maybe stick to cosmetics.
