Rated 4 out of 5 by danadog05 Not disappointed, but surprised...
The photo of this necklace makes it appear larger and more dimensional than it actually is. It is very thin and smaller than I expected. Having said that, I do like delicate pieces and have worn it and received many compliments. I think it is a good value for the price.

Not at all what I expected. I guess I made the mistake of ordering without viewing it first but unfortunately no video was available. I did read the description but my mind still pictured it bigger. So....sad about the size. Was the size of a nickle around my neck. I'm a girl that loves big and bold jewelry. So, it will go back. However, if you like delicate pieces, you will love it. It is very pretty.

I think the main thing that disappointed me about this piece was the bail. Although it is nicely embellished with marcasite, it is TINY and I cannot wear even my smallest Bali sterling necklace with it. The chain included is very delicate and frail. Also I was hoping that the shell carving was going to have more 3D detail to it- it is rather flat but the color is quite beautiful and soft pastel. I think if this piece would have been a tad bit bigger, maybe 1 1/2 inches across, and had a bigger bail and a little more thickness to it, it would have been perfect. Even if the bail were bigger I think I would have kept it because it would have looked really pretty with my Bali chain, but alas, I had to return it. We do need more organic jewelry though in PINK.

Too bad there's no video for this item as I write this because this has such an iridescence to the carved pink shell that's just lovely that the still photo doesn't capture. It's a true pink mother of pearl color so if you have other pink MOP pieces it should coordinate nicely.
It's a nice size because it will be noticed but isn't huge or overwhelming for petite people, or so small as to look silly on larger people. The back is well finished in a starburst pattern so if it happens to turn over it looks great on the back, although mine has behaved nicely by not turning over once on my neck so far, which is really saying something for most pendants and me. :)
It's a great alternative to a traditional cameo and I'm super happy with it; well worth the price to me.
