I just received this in the mail, and I am thrilled! I know a lot of men have purchased this, but as a woman I thought this bold necklace would look great with many items in my wardrobe. Turns out I was right because it's gorgeous!!! The polished finish makes it look more like white gold, and the seams are between the links so they aren't seen when wearing the necklace. This was packed beautifully with the full length of the necklace having been wrapped in protective plastic so it wouldn't get scratched in shipping. I am very impressed.
