"Beautiful and well made!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased this as a gift for a friend and it was a hit! She loved it! The necklace is very well made. I know that when I purchase things with lots of beads strung together, I often worry about the craftsmanship because Ive had more than one come apart. That was not the case with this item. It felt very sturdy and it was absolutely beautiful. I loved the color, the length was just right, and it was easy to clasp.
