I purchased this necklace recently and was excited to receive it based on the positive reviews found here. When I received it, I was very impressed with the high quality look and sparkle of the marcasite. Unfortunately, upon further inspection, one tiny stone was missing. I decided to exchange it for a new one. As a precaution, I kept the original necklace on hand just to compare the two. I'm glad that I did, b/c surprisingly, I actually decided to keep the original necklace. The second necklace that was sent had virtually no sparkle to it whatsoever (esp. in comparison to the first). Although there were no stones missing from the second necklace, the stones were set so deeply into the pendant that they didn't capture the light and sparkle. This might explain the drastic difference between some of the reviews. Overall, it's a very pretty pendant that is worth purchasing, esp. at this price. Just keep in mind that if it doesn't have much of a sparkle to it, it might be from a bad batch.
This locket is a good size and holds two pictures nicely. The case seems sturdy and is shiny. The hinge bends somewhat, but it bends back into shape OK too. The chain is a little utilitarian, but it works fine. You will need a metal nail file to pry off the interior metal frames on each side to put in your pictures, and those interior frames are a little flimsy, so you might want to be sure about the pictures you use to avoid prying the frames open more than necessary. We gave this locket with pictures to our beloved babysitter so she could "carry our little ones with her," and she was really touched and liked the gift. As always, I love Overstock's prices and speedy shipping -- great business, easy to recommend to others.
I would recommend it to a friend, but for an adult or someone who is easy on their jewelry. It's made well, the hinge is done very well, and the little lock thinger works great, the only thing is, the metal is a little thin for my taste. I like a good weighty necklace and this is a little light to me. But I will still wear it and enjoy it and keep my beloved's picture in it. It polished wonderfully, and still kept it's patina.
