I really like this but am wondering if the $383.00 price tag is worth it? I don't know much about the price of pearls. I won't wear it much but will on occasion. I like the length and the gold(although not 14k) mixed in. I'd like opinions please.

Hi, Starpolisher. Only you know if it would be worth it to purchase this item. The pearls are small, but probably very pretty. What makes this necklace special IMHO (and I do not own this one) are its 14K gold clad estate stations. Those stations are lovely designer touches that will work very nicely with all other Ripka estate items in clad, and any other yellow gold clad or yellow gold jewelry you already own.
I think it is a dressy piece that would look wonderful against a solid colored shirt or dress, or even a sweater. If you have the need for such a piece, and you will wear it and enjoy it, then you should consider it. I am drawn to that necklace, too, but I don't have a particular need for it.

It is very beautiful. If it will last and you wear it then it's worth it. Freshwater pearls will last longer than akoya pearls. Diamonique and the clad should be okay with proper care.

It's jewelry, so its intrinsic value is small, but because it's jewelry and you are attracted to it, it's worth it as long as you're honest with yourself than you can afford it and that you'll wear it often.
Once in a while jewelry buyers make money on their purchases, but much more often the value in jewelry is how we feel when we wear it.

While it is pretty, it is indeed very over-priced. The freshwater pearls have very little value, the same goes for Diamonique and 14k plating. I think you could find something very similar for less.
