I bought this as a Christmas present for my daughter. It's difficult to order items online and I depend on the reviews of others to help sway my decisions and did so with this item. I was really undecided but it had good reviews so I thought I'd take a chance. I ordered this in silver and gold and can honestly say when it arrived and I opened the packaged I actually smiled and said "aww". I loved it and very, very few times have I ever bought something online that exceeded my expectations. This necklace certainly did. It's unique and beautifully detailed.
