Beautiful Statement Piece (while minimizing gaudy/chintziness)
I was worried that this necklace would be too much, but it was exactly what my strapless, otherwise fairly plain but classic dress needed!! I also had concern from other reviewers that it *may* look cheap or somewhat gaudy. I will say that the crystals are fairly-to-moderately "cheap sparkly" when carefully scrutinized individually; HOWEVER, the way that light seemed to hit them in conjunction with the muted gold tones made this basically indiscernible during normal wear. I thought that I may not end-up with the opportunity to wear this to my formal event, so I also wore it to work that Friday with a plain business casual dress to many complaints. Very versatile.
My last concern (before renting) was with the length. This is a longer drape, and the V-shape of the drape is pretty sharp/deep. However, as a short torso'ed but full-busted lady, I still felt that this sat very well. It was **just** above being too sharp.
I would be cautious if your outfit has a lace top. This necklace could easily get caught regularly.
OVERALL: Highly recommended -- beautiful and versatile.
