This pendant/necklace is just what I was looking for...beautiful silver 'chain' and bright opal. Love the workmanship on the 'chain'. It's not a chain per se...it is silver cylinders separated by tiny silver balls. It hangs just below neck so it can be seen in any outfit. Really nice pendant/necklace! I wear it just about everyday. Can't go wrong with this purchase. I highly recommend it...so bright and beautiful.
