My other review stated that the necklace was too bright, making it look not real. I did a search on how to oxidize silver and found that if you hard boil an egg and crush it into a ziplock bag with the necklace, in about 30-60 minutes, it will be oxidized. This worked great (also confirming that this is indeed silver). My necklace now matches the pendant that I have and it looks great.
I had read the reviews before purchasing this necklace. Many of them used the word "shiny" in the description. This is a beautiful necklace, but I think the word "shiny" could be better explained. Maybe it's just me, but I thought I would receive a necklace that had a high polish gleaming metal appearance. Instead, it being diamond cut, it had a very sparky , shimmering look. The necklace looks more like white silver, as opposed to gray metal silver. Nonetheless, it was so pretty to be worn by itself that I kept the necklace. I had bought it to go with a pendant. However, I am going to buy another chain with the gray metal to go with the pendant, as this necklace radiates sparkle on its own, and everybody does notice.
This chain is exactly what I was looking for. I needed a longer chain for a pendant and this one fit the bill. I wear it daily and so far no snags, the clasp is holding up nicely, and overall I have no complaints.

I love the chain....it is just what I had imagined it to be, and very sparkly. When I tried it on, however, with a pendant, I was shocked that it was so tight around my neck. It was a 15 inch chain, not a 16 inch one. If ordering for a teenage daughter, it might be fine, but it is too short for an adult.

I purchased this little chain for a Swarovski crystal heart from Valentine's Day and it proved to be an absolute perfect size!! I liked the shorter length and the lobster claw clasp which is easier to use with my nails. It looks elegant, shiny, and substantial enough even though being petite. Don't be fooled that it is a thin little rope chain, it will definitely hold up for a bigger pendant than what I'm using it for. I also liked that it was made in Italy! I am thrilled I made this purchase and it is a definite keeper, thank you Overstock for having what I was looking for!!!
The necklace was extremely shiny and was actually more luminescent than another 925 sterling silver object. However, the chain is thicker than it lets on to be making it difficult for some charms to hang on it. It just barely fit with the one that I purchased it for, but now looks great on the old lady.
I just received the necklace yesterday and it was delivered in 4-5 days, as usual. The diamond cut really shines. It makes the pendant stand out as well. It is choker length so is perfect for those open necked blouses. I was concerned about it being strong enough to hold my heavy pendants but I've tried it and it seems to work fine. I like it so well, I'm ordering the 18 inch necklace. I can be hard to please so take my word for it, it's nice and you will be pleased. The lobster clasp is not as good of quality as the necklace but for the price, it's fine. My jeweler said he could replace the lobster clasp for very little money. This is a thumbs up!
I always love the quality of the products I find on Overstock. this chain is lovely. I personally needed an 18 inch chain and got this one by accident. Of course I will keep it. I wanted one that is a lot thinner, however. I have a lovely diamond pendent that I thought this would be perfect for. It is thicker than I thought so I ordered a different style. I willkeep this one though. I have ordered from Overstock for many years..couldn't live without them..LOL. I am an exclusive online shopper and never have to worry about quality from Overstock. I sound like an ad, but I am not. I am a real person.
Originally I purchased this to wear with a pendant that my husband gave me for Valentine's Day (to replace a chain that was too long). However, the clasp was too thick to pass through the opening on the pendant which isn't bad because the necklace looks great on it's own! It has a strong clasp and sparkles nicely.
