The necklace is pretty. However, the pendant looks smaller than the picture. The stone itself is beautiful, but the metal pendant setting looks kind of cheap (mine was slightly warped, but luckily you can only tell up close). The chain is thin and seems a bit flimsy, so you have to handle it carefully. I don't think it could stand up to everyday wear. It's better for special occasions. I think for the value it's a little overpriced, but then again you are paying for the "handmade" craftsmanship. I would recommend it for an inexpensive gift, but don't expect it to be the same quality you would get from a jewelry store.
