I bought this online. It came a lot sooner than expected. It is a very nice, pretty chain. It is thick enough to wear it with my emerald pendant. I would have liked it maybe just a tad thicker. But it is pretty strong. As long as I am careful with it, the chain shouldn't break. It was a great value for the money. The pendant rests just perfectly. Not too low, and not hanging in the cleavage area. A perfect length - 18 inches. It is very pretty and dainty.
