I ordered this necklace because it looked lovely in the picture. It arrived today and from the presentation of the piece to the actual trying it on- I was more than pleased. It came in a lovely Mulberry Paper Box. Included was a lovely note about the creation. The color of the pearls and beads are beautiful and do look like a River of Gold. It will be lovely to wear with fall color clothing. The necklace is delicate looking but strong. The length size is adjustable and the clasp is good. The workmanship is lovely. I would not hesitate to buy this as a gift for someone. All the pieces I have bought from Thailand are lovely.
Although I have come to associate the Novica name with quality merchandise, I was overwhelmed with the beauty of this particular necklace. It is delicate enough to be a dressy accessory, yet it's color and composition also makes it perfect for a casual-dressy ensemble. I like this piece enough to purchase another and double it up for use as a matching bracelet!
