I love... LOVE this necklace. The quality is out of this world. The chain alone is worth what I paid for the necklace. I just read a review that someone said the chain was all dirty. ITS SUPPOSE TO LOOK LIKE THAT, the designs in the silver are accented by the tarnish so you can see the craftmanship in the silver. Now, I will say that the stone does not look as bright as the picture displays. Its a pale green, but that's ok... its still unique. The weight of this is solid, its not a cheap piece and it falls exactly where it should on the nape of your neck. I'm actually contemplating getting the ring, that's how happy I am with this necklace. Thank You Effy, keep the new designs coming!
