I was hesitant to purchase from this company. It's always an unknown with a new place and China as it's origin. Well ladies, I bought this necklace and another one. Wow! Am I pleased with my purchase. The necklace is exquisite. I am wearing it to some dressier events and it looks spectacular. The quality is very high in both design and workmanship. It actually looks better in person than in the photo. I am truly impressed!
