I bought this item for my 7 yr old daughter so I was not exactly looking for Chanel quality. But for the price tag I paid I thought I would get a better than average necklace. I was wrong and if you are thinking of buying this for a special occasion, think again. The minuscule "diamonds" are actually microscopic, mishaped, different sizes, and they look like they have been "stuffed" in the letter shape. The pendant is round indeed, curved to look like solid gold but is actually thin and very obviously "empty" when the pendant is on its back. The chain is hair thin, it looks like the free chain you get in department stores when you buy a nice pendant. But this neckalce is not even close. Overstock, this necklace is Overpriced!
