This pendant is sleek and modern-looking - I wear it for casual and work. It makes a good "statement" piece if you don't like overwhelming, large, flashy pieces as it is very understated and clean-lined. A petite woman like me would find it very flattering. I get lots of compliments when I wear it. It's also super light weight. The clasp is a little amber button, which shows the attention to detail in this piece. One caveat - the necklace will tangle and the amber get scratched/dull if you store it carelessly. I have hanging jewelry pouches w/individual pockets for storage and that works fine; I think a tray would be ideal. But I can see it getting hopelessly tangled if you wad it up and throw it in a box or drawer.
