The individual round bead on the necklace are larger than I expected (almost the size of a small marble), and there are minor scratches on the beads where the gold paint comes off. Still, the necklace shines nicely, and is a nice replacement for pure gold bead necklaces that can cost up to thousands of dollars.
At first glance this necklace seemed to have larger beads than I anticipated. However I quickly ordered matching size bead earrings and have been really impressed with the look. It is a bit different from the general run of silver beads worn, both in yellow gold color and larger beads. This set demands attention, bracelets not necessary. Have had many compliments...including "Where did you find them?"

The beads of this necklace were much bigger than I thought they would be. I felt that that was my mistake, though, since Overstock states the dimensions. I did wear the necklace once so far. My colleagues commented on how dressed up I looked without attributing it to the necklace. I think I would be wearing the necklace more if the beads were smaller. I am surprised to read of the flimsiness. The beads are strung on three strands of gold chain that seem pretty sturdy to me. I don't have much gold, so I don't know if this is typical, but after a few months, the necklace has to be buffed to wear. The beads look like they have a film over them, but they do polish up nicely. I'm trying to whittle my jewelry wardrobe down to just relatively classic, useful pieces. I can't see myself getting much gold. I hope this piece can fill the spot.
