Is this a choker as would be suggested by your "16.1 in long" listed under "Details" or is it "27in" which it is described under specs? The short extention in the photo doesn't look like it would get it up to 27 in. I would prefer the choker that it looks like in the photo.
The colors of this necklace are much brighter than the subtle, understated tones shown in the website photo. Also, (unfortunately), the wire used to string the beads together is not a subtle silver, but rather a lavender-colored metallic strand. The effect is to turn what could be a very classy piece into something I'd expect a little girl to wear to a birthday party. Not unattractive - just not "Tropical Elite." I'll keep the necklace, but will likely not wear it frequently. May give it to a daughter or niece....

Thailand's Sasina began by crafting her own jewelry: 'I love jewelry so much that the need to adorn my body with it is mandatory. It was while studying at the university that I began creating accessories. Initially I made what I liked and sold some to friends. But I started to receive orders and ended up spending more time filling orders than creating new designs or doing anything else in fact.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

The necklace didn't look like the one in the photo. It had chartreuse and magenta pearls mixed with the amethyst and peridot which distracted from the simple elegance I was going for. I wanted a (mainly) purple amethyst necklace. Otherwise the necklace was fine and it came in a nice box which would make a nice gift.Read More

The necklace besides being pretty is extremely fragile and tangles easily. The stones are threaded by these very fragile violet and silver threads. I wish I had read the description more closely and had the time to return it.Read More
Well I like the necklace, its exactly what it says. It's not fine jewelry but a nice handcrafted necklace for a good cause. Overstock on the other hand is the worst online website I ha e ever dealt with, they blatently lied the item won't ship for over a week. It took almost a month to get it. Their customer service person told me it was because they had to make it to order in their warehouse. Even though it clearly states its hand made in Thailand. The absolute worst customer service in the industry don't buy from overstock ever.Read More
My wife is happy with the necklace! I was unhappy with the mailing time, but in the end overstock did well!Read More
I ordered the necklace as a February birthday gift along with the "Silver Garnet/ Amethyst 'Bright Bouquet' Earrings " which matched perfectly. It is absolutely beautiful, good length and weight, the colors are vibrant. Looks delicate but I can tell how sturdy it is. I know my cousin will love it. The wrapping was also great. As advirtised - took a week to be mailed but received quick once turned over to FedEx.Read More

This is quite pretty, and something you won't find at your local department store. I wear it with a purple silk blouse and black suit and it adds just enough of a pop to make the outfit stand out. It is delicate, so if you're looking for a bold statement, this is not the necklace for you.Read More
This is a lovely piece that a person seeking a purple/violet necklace is sure to love. In the photos, the stones appeared to have a fair amount of navy blue shading, which is what I was looking for, and the green accent stones appeared very subtle. In person, the stones range in tone from lavender to violet, with some royal purple in the mix. The green accents are very green. While this is still a nice combination, it was not quite what I was looking for. Still, for the price, it's a nice piece - delicate and unusual. I will keep it and pick up a purple shirt to wear with it.Read More
