This is a delicate necklace. I purchased it for my daughter's birthday. She loves the infinity design along with the cross. She wore it to high school and she received many compliments on the necklace.
What you see is what you get. I failed to check the measurements/size and it ended up being to small for me to wear so I will gift it to a child as the size is to small for an adult.
The marking on the back of the cross reads: "DBJ925CHINA"
DBJ = The designer's marking which is Jasco Designs Inc.
925 =By definition and international agreement sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% some other material usually copper. The 92.5% is why jewelry is often stamped with the numbers 925 or .925.
Why Mix Copper with Pure Silver?
Silver tends to oxidize (tarnish) quickly, leaving it a yucky brown color. The 7.5% copper or other metals used to make sterling silver slow down the tarnishing process.
Secondly, pure silver is a very soft metal. It can bend or break easily. Adding another, more durable, metal to the mix ensures that your silver jewelry will last a lot longer, and look a lot nicer down the road.
CHINA = you guessed it..made in China.
The horn is beautiful and what I had hoped for. The horn was a gift for my daughter; she was delighted with it. The size was good (not too small nor too large). I was pleased with the gold over silver option since gold is so expensive. Time will tell if the gold wears off, but for now we are happy with this purchase.
