Customer Rating: 4 out of 5 Beautiful stone

I looked at this necklace for months and finally decided to order when a sale came up - enough to pay for shipping which is a pet peeve of mine. It arrived quickly and the stone is of excellent quality and the size makes it a real statement piece. My one concern is the size of the chain which looks very delicate in contrast to the size of the pipe. It worries me with the weight of the stone. I'll definitely replace it for a larger mm chain as the pictured one appears to be.
