"The first thing I noticed was just how sparkly and shiny it was.…"
My mother in law is a jewelry lover. She's also very sentimental. I ordered this as a Christmas gift for her. It arrived in a padded envelope. The neccklace was in a nice, black gift box. There is a inventory sticker on the box but it peeled off very easily and didn't leave anything behind. Perfect for gift giving. The first thing I noticed was just how sparkly and shiny it was. It is very beautiful, that's for sure! I checked out the chain and how well it was made. I have opened and closed the clasp several times to check for any stickyness. The chain is a 16'' chain so keep that in mind. Although it is an easy swap to make if that doesn't suit you. The pendant is still worth it, I promise! The pendant is made of brass according to the listing but you can't tell that it's not silver. It doesn't look like cheap fake jewelry. This piece looks like something you'd find in one of the big name mall chains. It really is much prettier in person. I'm really pleased with it and I know my mother in law will just love it! I love being able to gift her nice, quality pieces that she can treasure and think of us each time she wears it!
