I have bought this necklace from overstock three times. I LOVED the pink one and wore it very frequently. It matched a number of outfits I have and I have always been very careful with it. I reviewed it upon the first purchase (one of the older reviews, anonymous from Northern VA) and that one broke on day one. I actually ended up buying it in white for my wedding and made sure not to wear it until the day of. It was exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately, during the honeymoon that one broke as well (strand pulled out of attachment). A year and a half later I found that the pink necklace was available again and since I have never found one I liked as much, I repurchased it. I wore it for a while, got lots of compliments, and, of course, the strands pulled out. I have both the white and the pink waiting to go to a jeweler for a more permanent attachment method as I simply cannot keep buying it, but like it so much that I refuse to give it up!!!
