This was an early Christmas present for a dear friend. She really loved it and said it was very sparkly. The price was just right. It was well-made. With Novica, that seems to be a given. I have purchased a lot of jewelry from Novica artisans since discovering this company two years ago. Everything I have purchased for myself or someone else is beautiful and well-made. The jewelry really can be passed down from one generation to the next.
The picture does not do this pendant necklace justice. I put it on and "BOOM!" it just made me happy with that deep sky blue. I wear it mostly as an everyday piece since I wear blues to match my eyes and wear bluejeans and shirts often. It feels serene yet stately like a princess would wear so it's great for women of all ages. What a great gift is was to myself. The chain is simple so the pendant is what mainly stands out, yet it is sturdy so it won't break if it gets caught on something as we sometimes have happen with our necklaces. I think it is perfect for a feminine girl who loves blues! I wear mine so often, it's kind of a "go to" piece" that I plan to match to another similar colored blue Chalcedony earring set and ring with smooth stones!
I just received this pendant and it's stunning, the size and color of the stone is gorgeous and I love the simplicity of the setting, it sets off the stone and allows it to be featured. I did switch out the chain and put it on a more substantial chain but that is my preference, nothing wrong with the chain it came with. Very pleased with my first purchase from Novica.
