I've only had this necklace for about a week and yet I have received so many complements on it! It looks exactly like it does in the pictures, and the gold is not tacky or fake looking as many of the reviews on other necklaces from this brand suggest. Many people have told me that they thought it was not only real, but an antique passed down through my family. It is absolutely worth the price. Only downside is that they do sometimes get tangled together because it is three layered, but it's easy to fix. These can also easily be layered with extra jewelry/necklaces without being too much. Overall, very satisfied with my purchase!
