This is a new version of my most popular necklace. I've recreated the front and added a few diamonds here and there for interest. The back half is one of my handmade chains. This makes the necklace less likely to twist, has a lobster clasp for extra security, and has less gold...therefore less cost. This necklace is 15" long and is supposed to hug the neck. I think of it exactly the same way as my other twig chain. It's perfect for layering or wearing alone. I've been wearing the original for over ten years now. It never comes off!
