This necklace is very stunning. The gold hue and the opal both appeal to me. Because it is so little and delicate, you may wear it alone or layer it with different necklaces. It was well worth the money. Update: I can't say enough good things about this necklace! It hasn't tarnished or rusted in the 1 and a half year I've had it. I put it on three times a week. I receive a lot of compliments on it, and it still looks brand new. Thank you Gelin!
