I purchased this necklace as a gift. The recipient was blown away and loved everything about it. When she learned about where I made the purchase, she was even more pleased that her gift made a difference to someone. Stunningly beautiful!
Just what I wanted
I tend to wear a lot of black. However, I like to add an accessory that is beautifully unusual and colorful. This necklace is perfect for me.
My wife loved it!
I didnt realize it was elastic string which turned out to be a blessing. My wife has difficulty with operating a clasp. She absolutely loved this necklace! Thank you and God bless you.
