It is a lovely piece, and I'll wear it with pride. It is not individually knotted, and I still think it's a bargain. I purchased the extended warranty. However, if you want the variety of color of the turquoise shown in the picture as I did, you will be disappointed. The turquoise is of uniform color, and the lighter shade.It gives the piece a little more formality than I was looking for. The picture should be changed to match what the piece really looks like. Luckily I have earrings that will go nicely, but I had hoped to wear a variety of my earrings because of the variety that the picture shows. It still has great quality and a great price.
