I purchased this little chain for a Swarovski crystal heart from Valentine's Day and it proved to be an absolute perfect size!! I liked the shorter length and the lobster claw clasp which is easier to use with my nails. It looks elegant, shiny, and substantial enough even though being petite. Don't be fooled that it is a thin little rope chain, it will definitely hold up for a bigger pendant than what I'm using it for. I also liked that it was made in Italy! I am thrilled I made this purchase and it is a definite keeper, thank you Overstock for having what I was looking for!!!
