The workmanship is better than it could ever be shown in a picture. Am very satisfied and is even a good bit better than i expected from the picture. Ross-Simmons is my number one place to look when i am interested in unique pieces of jewelry. I have been totally satisfied with the many pieces i have purchased on-line and have had only one piece that had to be returned due to a faulty clasp, and without question it was replaced. Thank you for your no hassle return and replacement. I will without doubt do more business with Ross-Simmons !!
