Nicely made, measures 24 inch end to end, chain and lobster clasp are 4 mm wide, its a bit lighter than expected at 12.2 gm or 0.39 troy oz as spot sliver is $** per oz, so a better price would be closer to $** since a troy oz is 31.1 gm. nicely polished. Looks like it should last a while as all links are welded/brazed closed except for the lobster clasp attachment split ring.

This necklace is very cute and perfect for casual attire. The silver is matte and not as polished as I had expected, but it works well with the chain and the etched images.

This chain was bought in conjunction with another purchase, the Crucifix Anchor Necklace, because just by looking at the pendant/necklace's accompanying chain in the picture, I knew that it was too delicate for my husband to wear (Father's Day gift). He liked the style of the link and the length in the picture. When I received it, I too was pleased with the finish, link styling and yes, even the 'heft'. For a chain of this size it does have some weight to it. Why I rated it as 'fair' is due to there being no end ring on this chain for the spring ring clasp to fit into. I did not return it for two reasons: 1) Father's Day was 3 days away when I received this and 2) I have beading supplies and had a silver jump ring so I fixed it myself. Otherwise, I would have returned it for an exchange. Had that been the case, and if the second one came the same way, I would have returned it for a full refund and given this particular item a 'poor' rating and a not too happy review. All in all, this is a very nice chain, but with nothing for the clasp to hold onto, that rates a 'fair' for the manufacturer and a 'poor' for quality control letting it slip through.

Nice for the price, but a little lighter than I expected. Still a pretty good quality piece for the price. I don't think it looks cheap at all and I really think it is a beautiful necklace. I wear it regularly and it shines up beautifully with a polishing cloth.

I know this isn't supposed to be an expensive piece of jewelry, but this isn't worth $10; the pendant looks nice from the one side, but the other side shows the mold (i.e., concave) and is off-color and not polished, i.e., when the necklace is worn, only one side of the pendant is nice/presentable. The chain is also very thin and doesn't look like it will last long. Very disappointed -- I've had good experiences buying similarly-priced stuff from Overstock, but this is junk.

This is actually a quality piece, however the chain is very thin and does not look highly polished, which is how I like to see sterling silver. It does have a lobster claw clasp, which is a plus. I am returning it.

This pendant goes wonderfully with the matching pair of earrings and is just slightly larger. They make a great set. The silver work is beautifully finished to every detail. The look is more polished and refined than some similar artisan made items. The quality of the design is consistent between the pendant and the earrings. A nice thing about Bali-style silver like this is that you can mix and match it with many other Bali pieces and it always looks terrific. A very good purchase at a good price. :)

I got this necklace for my mother for Christmas and she adores it. The chain is a nice length and the pendant really picks up the light. The sterling silver is very highly polished, it so far seems like a really lovely piece of jewelry for the price. Arrived on time in a nice little box ready to wrap. Would recommend.

This pendant is large enough to make a bold statement but not too big to look odd or gaudy. I really like the contrast of the shiny polished silver and the almost oxidized center areas. It does need a better chain but I almost always change the chain on any jewelry I buy no matter where I get it.

Was very pleased when I first got the necklace even though it had a rough edge that kept catching on clothing. It tarnished very quickly but being silver I figured it would eventually. I feel cheated. This must be a silverplated metal although it was advertised as sterling silver. All my stering polishes up nicely with the cleaner I have, this does not. Will never wear again. Waste of money!

I bought this as a gift. The charm tarnished the first day my niece wore it. It will not buff out, will have to get polish and try again. The chain is very thin as well. I feel like I gave a cheap gift!

I have not worn this often enough to comment regarding tarnishing or ease of polishing, but the clasp seems sturdy and the sheen is currently lovely

I am so happy with this chain! It's beautifully made. Its sleek finish, length and un-fussy look all work perfectly with my contemporary-style pendants. It is less effective with antique-looking silver pieces because of its high polish. I wanted a chain that hangs at mid-chest level, well below the neckline, and this is just right. It's a pleasure to own and wear, and I highly recommend it.

I ordered several of these chains in 2 different lengths. They are attractive and work beautifully with a variety of pendant styles. They are strong and I haven't had any curling or kinks. They are brightly polished giving a high quality look.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this necklace when it was received. The modern, simple design of the piece sets it apart from the rest of the sort of overwrought hands available. And they did a lovely job of polishing the piece so that the upper part is sort of matte while the lower, "fingers", are shiny. The chain is very nice as well. Altogether, a good value.

This chain was a gift for my Daughter. Not only did it incorporate different links, it was also textured. '' She Love It" ...and I was thrilled. I'd recommend this chain to anyone. Polished up well, and although lightweight, very sturdy. My only wish is was... it would have had a lobster claw clasp, instead of the spring ring clasp. I believe that the lobsters are just more sturdy. Other than that, beautiful chain, great value.

I gave this to my boyfriend as a gift for Christmas and two weeks later it looked BAD! Since it is STERLING silver I told him that he could wear it all the time w/o worrying that it would tarnish. Well it didn't tarnish, instead it looks like the silver is coming off. I have tried to polish it with my jewlery rag and it would not come off. Now it looks like fake silver, or something that you would get out of a gumball machine. Very disappointing.
