I want to absolutely love this piece because the craftsmanship is superb... however the shape of the piece is off for me. It's a bit too "east/west" oval shaped and it puts a weird pressure on my throat. If it were a bit more round as opposed to oval I'd give it ten stars. I'm trying to reshape it a bit, but is such a sturdy piece, it's not moving much. It does make me want to order the bracelet.
Despite it being beautifully crafted, it is sized for a relatively small neck. I assume it’s shaped with a smaller neck in mind, making it inadequate for most people, men especially. Also, since it is made of bronze, it loses is shine very quickly, mine became dull within 24 hours. Finally, it leaves, as most bronze jewelry do, a blue-green smudge on your neck when you wear it for a few hours. Some of these concerns cannot be fixed seen as the material it is made with, but it could be more clearly stated.
I’ve not seen the necklace in real life yet, but mailed it to a dear friend as a gift. She said it is beautiful! I also emailed Studebaker to ask them to include a note in the box which they printed beautifully. Ordering and shipping was easy, and I love supporting a local Pittsburgh business!
My girlfriend LOVES this choker. Super well made, high-quality, very unique, and beautiful. I would highly recommend!
This was my first necklace purchase I’ve ever made for myself, and I wasn’t disappointed. it’s a simple piece that really stands out, and it feels good to wear it. I will say, the size is more likely a 12” circumference, not diameter. While unboxing I was afraid it would be too small, but it fits like a glove. Highly recommend this for men who want a new piece for their neck.
