This is the first gold chain I’ve purchased. I like the 24” length as it slips easily over my head without un-clasping, and the 1.5mm width seems strong but not too blingy. The 14k has a bright yellow shine. It was advertised as Italian online, but has a stamp that says “Turkey”. No one could really tell me why, but I got a good sale price so I’m keeping it. Btw it went on sale even more the day after I bought it and the rep in the online chat adjusted it to give me the new discount, so I was impressed by their awesome customer service!
