Saige's Accessories include a turquoise beaded 'coin' necklace, a quadruple-strand red beaded bracelet, a canvas multi-colored tote bag, and an earring set consisting of two turquoise studs, a set of dangling feathers, and a set of dangling bear claws.
Overall this set is adorable. The tote is small, so I'm not sure it would hold much of anything. I have not attemped to fit any of her art supplies inside. The turquoise necklace is nice, but I am surprised that AG would not have placed any design on the coin as it looks very plain. Both the necklace and bracelet have the added detail of a chain lengthener and ball accent which was a nice touch. I did find the bracelet difficult to get on however. The earrings are easy to use by sliding either the feathers or bear claw cluster over the stud, then inserting the grouping into the ear. The turquoise studs have a very real appearance which I appreciated. Overall this set really brings an elegance to the doll I'm not sure we've seen before, especially when combined with Saige's ring. I do hope we see more ring and earring offerings from AG.

I bought this set for the earrings, I don't think anything else in it is all that special. But it's cute, and goes well with her collection. It does bother me that they mixed gold and silver jewelry terribly, but that's probably a personal thing.
I have been hoping for a long time that AG would release jewelry like this and my prayers have been answered. Love the dangle earrings to death, hoping this set does well so more will be released for the modern girls. The purse looks a little like a Fossil purse I already have. A+ for the set!

I love her accessories except for the bracelet. I cannot get it on her at all. It needs another link which I can do but it annoys me that I have to do so. I would give these accessories a B but since I like everything except that impossible bracelet I am giving it an A-.
I just got this today, and the bracelet is twisted. It appears that everyone else's is 4 distinct strands, while mine is 1 straight strand and 3 twisted (or I can make all 4 twisted). This kinda bugs me, and I am wondering if it's a defect and I should call CS. When I have a chance, I will try to get a picture up.
Got this set yesterday. I love the earrings and the purse. As noted by ag4alison, the gold coin on the necklace is a bit odd. I find it funny that it isn't silver since silver is the main metal color used in SW jewelry (and personally I think it would look better with the blue of the necklace). It is also funny that the coin has no design on it. It ends up looking okay, but they could have done better.
My biggest complaint is with the bracelet. Mine came twisted, but I just untwisted it. I also have trouble getting it on her wrist (I have Lanie with her bracelets and they are hard to get on, but not almost impossible like this one is). Also, the threads (and I do mean threads) that the coral beads are on look like they are going to break at any minute. I would NEVER give this to a child, it would be broken in a couple of days. I imagine that if the thread doesn't break, the rubbing of the thread against the metal clasp will cause it to fray and break. This will not be getting much use in my house and will be put away (or else I'll see about getting a second one via replacement parts).
Overall I'd give the set a B. I love the concept of the jewelry, but the bracelet is a fail and the necklace is only a C due to design issues. A+ on the purse and the earrings.
I opted for the accessory set when my colleague purchased my Saige doll from Chicago. I had no earring sets and with Saige's pierced ears, I figured some earrings would be nice.
Purse Just a standard canvas-like material. Seems somewhat small to me (if we are looking at ratio, it is just bigger than a child's hand, which is a pretty small purse to me). It is cute though and unique. A-
Earring Definitely my favorite part of the set. They are not as childish as some of the other earring sets AG offers, which is perfect for my dolls who are 14 years old. Very easy to use and the dangles provide additional mix and match potential with other AG earring sets. A
Necklace Cute, but the construction is poor. The coin is a light plastic coated gold. I had a darn time with the clasp, and I am an adult collector. I cannot imagine how a child would have any easier of a time. B-
Bracelet As others mentioned, mine came twisted and I had to untwist as I was attempting to put it on Saige's wrist. Like the necklace, the clasp was horrid and very tight. C
Overall, I like the concept of the set. It is not too stuck on a given theme, such as McKenna's gymnastics duffel bag or Kanani's Hawaiian themed items. But the construction of the necklace and Bracelet is questionable, especially for the target age.
