Bottom Line: I would recommend this to a friend!
5.0 out of 5.0
I've always been a "gold girl", but have recently switched over to wearing more silver jewelry. I was looking for a classy, stylish, "go to" silver necklace that I could wear with casual and dressy outfits. I saw this online and really liked the silver/gold combination which allows me to wear silver or gold earrings with it. I ordered both an 18" and 20" length to see which I liked better (I kept the 20"). I have to say, this is an exquisite necklace. Heavy weight, beautiful, quality craftsmanship - a truly classy necklace that I will wear proudly for years to come. It's a little pricey, but well worth it. I would highly recommend this piece to anyone who likes silver and gold jewlelry.
