I fell in love with this necklace on the Overstock web site but when I got it I was sadly disappointed. The length is too short and could only wrap it around my neck two times and the rubies are dull and badly cut. My biggest disappointment is that the pearls are not knotted, so I just don't trust this product will last very long. I could just see an embarassing incident in the future of this piece breaking and sending pearls and rubbies all over the place. The pearls were pretty however but the red string holding the whole thing together looks cheesy. Nope, not impressed one bit for the cost vs quality.
