This necklace is just perfect. The gold is not too shiny, and it does have a bit of weight to it. It seems that many customers purchase items without reviewing the sizes. Make sure it is the size you'd like. Especially with jewelry, things tend to be much smaller than anticipated. It also seems that people are expecting something extraordinary from a gold plated product ordered online. The bottom line is, this is a beautiful, lovely product that I wear all the time and it has yet to show signs of wear. That said, it is what it is. I wasn't expecting the most detailed hand made item, because it isn't such. If you are looking for something like that, I would commission it from your local goldsmith.
I purchased this as a replacement for my husband when his old one simply broke and could not withstand a repair. He loves it. It looks like real gold, wears just as well, is sturdy, and much more economical than purchasing a solid gold necklace. He wears it every day so after about two years, we took it and had it re-plated. Good as new.
