I purchased another opal necklace from the same artist and loved it (the one with the "sun" design". This one didn't compare. Although it looked lovely in the picture, it appears poorly made and cheap. The silver setting for the stone looks like plastic, and the necklace had one large bead on one side of the pendant, but two beads on the other. The necklace also seems small but measured barely 16 inches. I'm sending it back - not worth the money. But if you like opals, check out the one with the sun design! One more thing...I purchase several items through Overstock each month, and this is the first I've been disappointed with. Most others have been great quality and value.
I receive this and I ordered another necklace but I love it and didn't want to return it. It is so cute I wear it a lot even with the earrings I ordered that I thought matched this necklace. They still look nice together.

When I received the opal necklace I was disappointed with the size of the pendant. The opal is very nice. The quality of the necklace was good so overall for the price it was worth it.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes the stone was
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of the product was great. I just thought it was larger than it was
- How accurate was the sizing? Poor
This opal necklace is pretty for a "tween" girl because of the sun motif and the pretty stone. It isn't sophisticated jewelry but it's good quality for the price and the necklace itself, since it isn't a chain is tangle-free for young women and attractive.
I ordered this necklace as a gift before reading the reviews. After seeing some of the reviews, I was a little concerned about the quality and size of the piece. It arrived and I am delighted with it. The craftsmanship is excellent. The length of the chain is perfect and nicely done with the silver cylinder beads. The opal is a nice sparkling white and set perfectly in the center of the silver crafted sun. I could not be more pleased and believe the person I am giving it to will be too!
This is a perfect match for the sun opal earrings. The .25" description is accurate in that it refers to the size of the stone. Not too small if you pay attention to the description. The chain is nicely constructed and the opal is beautiful. I bought this and the matching earrings for my daughter and she loves them.Not sure what one customer was reviewing when she mentioned that she liked the sun design necklace much better. This IS the sun design.Thanks, Overstock for another great purchase experience.
This is a very well crafted necklace but the pendent is much, much smaller than I thought. I must have not read the details on the size of it because the picture portrays it much larger than it really is. Otherwise it's a pretty necklace.
The earrings and matching necklace were purchased as a gift for my daughter. Everyone who has seen them has been delighted. My only negative comment would be in the description - the impression we got was that the overall setting was 1/4" and we were truly thrilled that the 1/4" was the size of the stone only. We were particularly pleased to be able to purchase items made by a local artisan and not mass produced.
The workmanship is excellent! However, I was more than a bit disappointed by its size. I would suggest including a small tape measure across the bottom of items like this. Understand that I am not unhappy with the purchase, merely disappointed by its size.
I bought this necklace for my son's girlfriend and really didn't know anything about her style, but knew opal was her birthstone. She was obviously excited when she opened it. The sun catches the opal quite nicely and is so pretty on the neck. Now I need to get her the other pieces to match.
