Moonstone beads are a bit more subtle color than shown in the picture, but overall the necklace is very pretty. I did not notice from the picture that all carnelian beads are separated by red thread knots, which do not look as nice as little golden separators between the rest of the beads, but this is not a deal breaker for me. Would have been perfect in appearance, size of beads, and the overall length otherwise.
This is very pretty and I love that it is unique and has both gold and silver detailing. The purple teardrop on the one I got is a little more of a muted purple than in the photo. That's ok though, it blends a bit better with the coloration of the jasper. The chain is nice and heavy, but you can remove it and replace it with a gold one. My only real complaint with the two Michael Valitutti necklaces I've purchased is that the clasps feel a bit cheap and the chains aren't adjustable for length, which is a problem when the pendants are large or long.
