I bought this necklace about a year ago. I was hoping it would be long like the original catalog image, but it was a little shorter, but not quite a choker. I only wore this necklace a couple times very briefly. Recently, the shells just started falling out and there were loose strings coming out. I tied the strings in knots and was hoping it would stop falling apart. I wore it the other day and it just completely fell off and all the shells scattered across the ground. I can't believe how much money this was for such low quality.

I read the previous reviews. Was not sure if I should order it since several mentioned the shells were falling off or cracking etc. The choker went on sale so I decided to order it. The choker arrived in perfect condition. It is not quite choker length, a little longer but I am petite., so it may just lay a bit longer on me. 5'4" 98 lbs. That being said it is not overwhelming on me either. It's a unique & fun piece. It looks exactly as pictured.Have fun with it.

This may be a fun necklace but its made with cheap sliced cowie shells & base metal ,way over priced as is most current jewelry FP sells, used to have better made jewery at fair prices. My Grandma has items from the 70's & wow their great. Its sad as many necklaces I have bought have rusted or fell apart. Plus many clothes don't last long yet cost a lot,, Sorry FP don't like write bad reviews but had to tell the truth and wish you would go back to good valves like when you started. This necklace fell apart before I could get out the door. A real puka would be worth $98. this is $20. piece.

I love this necklace and have gotten many compliments on it. It fits like a choker and is quite heavy. I have worn mine 4 times and all the shells are still intact. It's strange the other reviewers' fell apart so easily.

I was so excited to receive this choker. Upon removing it from it's packaging I noticed something was off. The Kuchi tassel had a missing dangle, but also it was MUCH smaller and less full than the one in the pic. I realize craftsmanship will vary from piece to piece, especially with handmade items, but this is ridiculous! $105 (price + shipping)? I really expect more from Free People. I am willing to pay, but not if I can't receive what I paid for! Really let down. Definitely returning.

I really like /liked this necklace, but as the previous reviewer pointed out , shells fell out of the box when I pulled the necklace out. Two days later half of the shells on the right side of the necklace fell off. You can see in the picture how unbalanced it looks. I think now it is unwearable. I am beyond disspointed that an expensive piece like this could fall apart so easily. This might be my last purchase, I expect better from free people....

I opened the package and 6 shells fell to the counter. I tried it on and another 4 shells fell off. The bad part about it is that the necklace is really cute!! You'll just have puka shells falling everywhere. It is actually longer than the description states. It does not fit like a choker like in the photo (unless you have a massive neck). Really wished the quality was better.
