This necklace is very pretty. The stones look like the diamonds, and have sparkle. The silver is good quality. The piece is not too big or too small. The stone section is about 2 inches wide. You can wear this for day or night. The chain isn't too thin, and has a spring-ring clasp. It would be better with a lobster claw clasp. This is a great piece to add to your jewelry collection, especially if you get it on sale.
