OMEGA: A notably shiny chain formed by flat plates crimped together over a mesh interior. The semi-rigid structure gives it a unique look, perfect to wear as is or pair with a slide pendant.
LOBSTER CLASP: named after the pinching style of the hook, this clasp is often shaped like a lobster's claw. Use your finger to work the lever to open the clasp.
This is a beautiful omega necklace. I expected to put a pendant on it, but at 6mm, the necklace actually looks more stunning on its own. AND it's reversible, one side is silver, the other gold. Super value for the price. Excellent quality. Outstanding quality, in fact. This is an outstanding quality omega necklace, not a flimsy, cheap one. Very sturdy.

Bottom Line: I would recommend this to a friend!
3.0 out of 5.0
It's a lovely piece, but....
there is no room between the necklace and the clasp, which makes putting it on hard and getting it off harder.
