I was given this necklace two years ago from my boyfriend and recently it was stolen from me. But before that it was a beautiful necklace, I received compliments frequently on how beautiful it was, and how great it looked. Many people thought he spent at least $100 on it, but he's a smart shopper, he bought this from me the day we became official. It's beautiful and strong piece of jewelry, he has bought me two bracelets in the past 6 months and they're both broken, and so I can speak about quality jewelry. Buy this! You won't regret it.
