There are a few issues here. First, while the links are the size described, the look of the necklace is quite different from the photo. The links are very delicate and it arrived with two kinks that I'm unable to untangle. Additionally, it measures short of 16" which, as another reviewer noted, is a big deal on a short necklace. I wish I'd read the reviews before buying: this necklace is very disappointing and going back.
