I recently purchased this necklace and so far i have only recieved the greatest compliments on it. the only thing I would change is the length of the chain. It is sturdy, but it is just a tad too long for me. I can wear it to work or out to play but most of all I can wear it and not be bothered with the chain working it's way down so the clasp is in the front of me, i hate that....I think it was a great buy for the price and I am buying my mother one for christmas! thanks again overstock, another long time customer that is totally satisfied!
