I have indifferent feelings about this piece. I was disappointed when it arrived. It has a "cheap" feel to it. The moon face looks like plastic, is supposed to be bone, (cow bone to be exact) which has either been overly bleached or truly is plastic.
I have considered returning this item and have only worn it once.
