I purchased another opal necklace from the same artist and loved it (the one with the "sun" design". This one didn't compare. Although it looked lovely in the picture, it appears poorly made and cheap. The silver setting for the stone looks like plastic, and the necklace had one large bead on one side of the pendant, but two beads on the other. The necklace also seems small but measured barely 16 inches. I'm sending it back - not worth the money. But if you like opals, check out the one with the sun design! One more thing...I purchase several items through Overstock each month, and this is the first I've been disappointed with. Most others have been great quality and value.
