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.
I am familiar with Michael Valitutti's Company's jewelry. The mixture of the sterling silver with the palladium makes the pieces stronger than with just sterling silver alone. The gold vermeil applied to the pieces is very attractive. The designs are unique and different and very good looking. I bought this pendant in the green color, and it is very vibrant and striking. This is a beautiful piece of jewelry. Love it!!
I have seen this cross pendant for men listed by a shopping channel at a much higher price! This cross also came in citrine but only the garnet is offered here. These garnets have tons of fire and look great on the onyx bead necklace. This is also an Etruscan looking cross pendant but can be worn by men or women. The price at Overstock is amazing and definitely worth every cent!
