I bought this necklace for my daughter for xmas and I'm sure she'll love it as much as I do. I was concerned about whether I had purchased the correct chain link for her and Janet was over-the-top helpful and helping with that decision!
I ordered this because it's my birthstone and I love the design! It's even cuter in person than the picture. I'm a little tough on necklaces, so I would recommend the ball chain (which is still delicate and feminine).
I have been wearing this necklace constantly for over 5+ years. It is great with a pair of jeans or a simple black dress. It's so sweet and elegant. I love love love this necklace!!!
