I love this necklace but I changed the chain. To me the chain takes away from the simple beauty of the pearl. The chain just seemed bulky and cheap. The links of the chain are bigger than pictured. I love the way the pearl hangs and looks so good with everything I wear it with from dress down jeans to dresses and a night out on the town. The pearl is white and oval shaped. The delivery of this item was SO quick too. Order this and you will not be disappointed...just beware that you might want to use a different chain. But don't let that deter you from ordering it. The price is great too.
