There's no doubt that this is a beautiful necklace. It drapes in perfect layers (and stays that way) when worn. The embellished ribbon is a nice touch and makes it unique. The color is a soft, muted gold which gives it an expensive, classy look. The only problem with this necklace (and why I only gave it 4 stars for fit) is that I have to slip it over my head to wear it. There's no clasp or snap! I'm not sure why it was designed this way, but I do think twice about achieving the perfect hairstyle before I put it on.
