Raising awareness of women’s lives. No one woman needs to have a fifteen-carat diamond necklace all the time. Creating its own history. But -and here she paused for the clincher- wouldn’t it be delightful to have one every now and then? I can’t spend twenty-two thousand dollars on myself, but I can spend one thousand. Jewelry stores can have large markups-that’s a reason so many chain jewelry stores offer discounts of 70 percent. Being in the jewelry business meant being a negotiator, and in this store Tom usually handled negotiations himself.

I also found that necklace gave the women something to talk about with other people and a reason for people to take an interest in them.

Book by Women of Jewelia, Jarvis, Cheryl
I'm always looking for something original to read. There are a million similar books and finding one that stands out is what interests me. I enjoyed reading about the different women and the travels of the diamond necklace they shared. A fun and sometimes thought provoking book. If you are a woman who enjoys beautiful jewelry this is a must read. If you are a woman who enjoys other women and community service this is a viable read that may inspire you to create your own ideas for a service minded group. I love being with other women. Being with them offers a net of love and safety and it always inspires and gives more than I ever imagined it would. To the women of Jewelia thank you for your story.
I just Finished reading The Necklace by Cheryl Jarvis. This book is an absolutely amazing TRUE story about 13 women who buy and share a diamond necklace worth $37,000 dollars. What starts out an economic experiment, turns into a life long friendship and bond between many women of all ages as the necklace becomes a powerful item that raises thousands of dollars for charity, and a binding talisman to the meaning of sharing, friendship, and creativity! FIVE STARS, love this incredible story! Just ordered many copies for Christmas gifts.
I only bought this book for book club because I couldn't get a copy at the library. I found the writing confusing (who was the narrator? how did the narrator fit in with the characters? Was I reading a newspaper story or a novel?) The characters felt shallow and stereotyped. I put that on the author and not on the actual women who were the focus of this book. The author needed a better editor who could've helped her figure out what she was trying to do with the story and why should the reader even want to read it. I found myself sighing 'not again' with every woman's story and wished I hadn't bought the book. I'm extremely grateful I didn't buy the audio version.
The writing is remarkable,however, the storyline at times was a combination of a burden and boring. I have no doubt many readers will find insight into their own self awareness.
The Necklace is a quick easy read about a group of women who come together and buy and share a necklace and how it effects them when they wear it and how it changes their life perceptions.
I loved this book and was sorry to finish. I loved how a luxury item changed these women for the day, for the month and for a year. A necklace that was shared by women in many different economical situations or levels of life.
Good book that is a great lesson in human nature and especially the interrelationships among women of all backgrounds. it was more about the changes brought about in self discovery than anything else.....but nice to see how those changes made such impacts on the communities where the women lived and how they brought about so much good. I would hope that all the charities that were affected by the women are still ongoing today.
Good true story.

I liked the author's final chapter much better than all of the others. It's worth reading if you already have it on hand. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

I read it for a book group. We all liked the storyline a bit but questioned how feasible this would be in small town America.

If nothing else, this led to a good discussion about luxury, self indulgence, self esteem, gender choices, group dynamics and relationships. As most people in the book group I attended are frequent volunteers with other organizations we wondered about the true effect of "Jewelia" on nonprofit endeavors. If the group truly wanted to change lives or make a difference in the greater community additional efforts could have been shown in the book.

The Necklace was a good study in group dynamics and shifts from personal to group agendas. Although nonfiction it reads like light summer reading. It was a tough story to tell from so many different people's perspectives. A bit more editing would have helped. Even so, I enjoyed it.
