This necklace (and the matching earrings) are absolutely stunning. Unfortunately, they are also very fragile. I only wore the necklace a half dozen times when it broke. I received a ton of compliments on this set (I bought both the necklace and earrings). If you decide to buy this, I highly recommend buying the extended warranty. If this was made a little better, I would have given it 5 stars. I adore the set.
