This will be a gift for my adult daughter this Christmas. It's hard to find her birthstone in a contemporary, but not overdone setting in jewelry. Would have liked the clasp to match the the stringing material. A few pieces of the peridot were in the bottom of the box, but didn't seem to affect the look of the necklace. The gift box is beautiful, but the necklace is very poorly packaged inside, which may be how the peridot pieces ended up in the bottom of the box. Overall, I'm pleased with the necklace and think my daughter will be, as well.
