The flower was a bit larger than I'd expected and I wish the necklace was a either a little shorter (like 16") since it tends to creep under round necked shirts & blouses (it would be beautiful as a choker) or more like 20" so it came down farther. That being said, however, it is a very beautiful piece of work and unusual.and I am not disappointed that I bought it.
I AM BEYOND THRILLED WITH THIS PENDANT! THE BASKET SETTING HAS THE SAME VINTAGE LOOK AS THE MATCHING RING. THIS PENDANT IS VERY WELL MADE,YOU CAN SEE THE CARE THAT WENT INTO THIS HANDMADE PIECE,IT'S QUALITY THAT YOU CAN'T FIND IN MASS PRODUCED JEWELRY. THE COLOR OF THE STONE IS A GORGEOUS DEEP VIBRANT PURPLE,THE BASKET SETTING IS OPEN ON ALL SIDES & UNDERNEATH SO IT ALLOWS THE SUN TO SHINE THROUGH BRILLANTLY,THIS PENDANT HAS THE SAME "CHECKER BOARD CUT" AS THE RING SO IT CATCHES THE EYE WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SPARKLY PURPLE COLOR,IT'S JUST BREATH TAKIING. IT IS THE SAME SIZE AS THE RING (BETWEEN A DIME & A PENNY IN CIRCUMFRENCE) WHICH IS PERFECT FOR A PENDANT. THE PENDANT DOES NOT COME WITH A CHAIN AND THE THING YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF IS THE BAIL IS *VERY* LARGE & THE PENDANT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD WITH YOUR AVERAGE PENDANT CHAIN,I TRIED SEVERAL SIZES FOR THE PERFECT LOOK & FIT & I FOUND THAT THE BEST FIT WAS A 3.3mm ROUND CHAIN,I PURCHASED A ROUND ROPE CHAIN THAT WAS 16 INCHES,I PERSONALLY THINK THIS LOOKS BEST CLOSEST TO THE NECKLINE INSTEAD OF SAY A LONGER CHAIN OF 20 INCHES+ (I'm not sure what size to get if you wanted to wear it on a flat chain such as an omega,but I think that would look great). Also since this is a true handmade high quality .925 sterling silver is has more of a deep grey "steely appearance",I purchased a stainless steel chain instead of a silver chain,since the color match was identical to the high quality silver used in the pendant,I tried to match it with a silver chain,but most silver pendant chains now add "nickel" to the silver & it gives the metal a strange "white" appearance,since I needed a very thick chain to fit the bail & size of the pendant to purchase a quality chain equal to the quality of this pendant would have been very expensive,so I opted for the stainless steel which can be purchased between $!@#$%$W,mine has a lobster claw clasp & looks amazing..although it's completely up to you... YOU WILL LOVE THIS! AND IT IS STURDY ENOUGH FOR EVERYDAY WEAR GOES WITH JEANS & A T SHIRT TO MY BEST WORK CLOTHES,I HAVE RECEIVED COUNTLESS COMPLIMENTS,I ONLY WISH IT CAME IN OTHER COLORS,I WAS LUCKY BECAUSE PURPLE IS MY FAVORITE COLOR. THANK YOU OVERSTOCK!
This necklace goes with almost everything. I liked this necklace so much I ordered five more for Christmas gifts and I am sure that they will be a big hit...
Not only is this artistically unique, it is well made. And it's a good size -- not too large or too small. I wear it on a long heavier-weight chain (30-36 inch). It's a great layering necklace or by itself.
