"Beutiful Large Silver and Blue Topaz Butterfly"
This butterfly is do beautiful it took my breath away when I opened the package and saw it inside the clear plastic bag that contained it. I wore it today for the first time and it was immediately noticed. It gets a star rating of 5 because it is so beautiful. However, I do have one concern. The butterfly can twist side to side a little on the silver stick it sits on, and I am not sure whether it was designed to move a little or is a defect in the one I received. I still love it but I am a little concerned the butterfly could break away from the stick and be lost. I will probably take it to a local jeweler to be checked out and fixed if they think it is not attached as intended. Overall I am still happy with it, recommend it highly, and would buy it again.
