Gorgeous Sparkle & Color! Perfect for my daughter's Masquerade Dance! 4 Stars for Missing Stones!
The necklace was really lovely and complimented the peacock colors (teal, jade and silver) in my daughter's strapless dress. In fact, the attached photos do not do the necklace justice because they do not capture the way it sparkles in the light. It truly added just the right POP to pull everything together. The necklace has a couple of nice features. It has a strong, adjustable clasp to make it longer or shorter depending on your needs. My daughter is 5'10' and has a long, narrow neck. The necklace is shown in the photos at its longest setting. Also note that the necklace does not have a typical U shape. It curves in along the collar bone and then flares in and out again. It is actually a nice design feature, but is not what I expected from the photo. My daughter is a rower and fairly slim so her collar bone may have contributed to the way it laid on her neck. Still, if you want a long necklace, this is not it. Also, if you have a thicker neck, it might appear even shorter. If you want to wear it shorter and you have a prominent collar bone, it might not lie flat. I also want to point out the reason I gave this beautiful necklace only 4 stars. It was missing two stones when it arrived. We were horrified! However, because this was a dance and my daughter would mostly be in the dark, we decided that it probably would not be noticed (we also did not have time to return it and exchange for one that was not damaged). As you can see from the photo, it was not noticeable. Nevertheless, I would not get this necklace if you are in a formal, daytime setting, where such a flaw could be embarrassing or obvious. For a dance or nightclub setting... it is perfect!
