I said no that I wouldn't recommend this to a friend only because of the extreme light weight of the product. The beads almost feel like plastic. I know that they are not, but if I want heavy gold beads, then I guess I better prepare for the price.
The only thing I can say I can say is "Please Don't Buy This!" This necklace - and I am using the term necklace lightly - is a joke of the worst kind, because the joke will be on you. I was looking for something comparable to the Tiffany's graduated gold necklace, because a couple of years ago I purchased a sterling silver graduated necklace and bracelet from Overstock and they are still going strong. So I thought I would do the same with the gold set. I returned both as soon I got them. The necklace was so light weight and cheap it looked and felt like something out of a toy vending machine. What a waster of time. Overstocked should make the make description read: This toy necklace can be harmful to children if swallowed. Not suitable for children under the age of ten.
Well, I remembered the a-a-bead necklace from the 1980's that I never got, and went in search for one. These are very hard to find in the vintage genre. I also remember that the beads on these necklaces would dent very easily. So I considered that the gold over silver would provide more strength, and was correct in this assumption. This necklace was all I envisioned it would be, and I'm loving wearing such a classic. Am in high profile public arena, and always get compliments. So my inner teenager is tickled, and my adult self is satisfied! Now I can pass it along to my daughters as "vintage"

- How accurate was the sizing? Nice that you can adjust according to your clothing neckline
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Leaves a little tarnish on skin
This necklace feels as great as it looks. Before I even put it on, I knew it was just what I wanted. Very rich looking, and made with great craftsmanship. The clasp was easy to use if some one has difficult with their fingers. I think woman of any age would love to show this fine piece of jewelry off.
This necklace is abolutely georgous. I have been wanting one for a long time - but i wasn't about to pay $500.00 or more for this particuar item. Thanks to overstock.com I didn't have too. thank you p.s. i get compliments on this necklace all the time.
