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.
