I have been searching for a necklace I might wear with any color of clothing, for quite some time. I received it promptly. The opal is pale and luminous, and teams to create a feminine yet not overstated embellishment to anything I wear. It is very well made, and has a fairy tale quality to it's appearance which I find endearing. I'm so glad I took a chance on it because it is exactly what I was looking for. The stone sits past the bottom of the throat. And also I can wear a round or v-line collared shirt with it, just as I wanted. This piece really exceeded my expectations and I am so happy.
