Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
The threading between the stones is gold-tone while the clasp and extension are silver. I really like the look of the necklace and it nicely fills the neckline of a dress or suit. However, the threads tangle badly and I spent at least 15 minutes trying to untangle it. Be sure to hang this up between uses. The artisan really should re-think the use of this thread - perhaps a heavier weight one.
The necklace also arrived late.
It comes in a nice gift bag.
