I bought this to wear with a gold pendant. This necklace is gorgeous! I can wear it alone or with the pendant. When I wear it with the pendant, my whole look is just stunning. I get compliments all the time. The necklace sparkles and just makes my pendant "pop." It so complimentary, not overpowering. I'm actually going to purchase another one for another gold pendant I have! My favorite necklace by far and I have a lot of necklaces! Love, love, love this necklace!
