This is a nice sized pendant, and the colors are beautiful! It has a rough edge at the bottom, which I really like. Also comes with a cord so you won't need to repurpose any chains you already have!
I love this jewelry that is under $20 at this time. It is welcome to get these pieces to review because this is my style (BOHO/Hippie/New Age). The crystals vary, and this one is an Amethyst of some sort and has lovely and peaceful colors with gold-plated and irregular settings for this irregular or random geode. These crystals have connections to Chakras which makes me feel great. Chakras relate to different zones in the body/aura/spirit, or whatever you believe in your being. I might be slightly off, but that is how I understand it. Spiritually I am happier with a kind, gentle heart and spirit are kind, even if it is difficult for me to find these people in those I meet. Some people do rituals with these and similar items though it doesn't matter what discipline/belief system/practice/religion; I see these peaceful actions in a positive light.
The gold-plated metals are distinctive/uncommon/uneven, and lend to the charm. Some items are rings that have adjustable bands. These are irregular, as I say, and I am lucky enough to have found a suitable pendant to match for the same price.
Great value and lovely items that are small but pop when wearing a contrasting or even matching outfit/color. Great deal! Some from AYANA are even more affordable and a bit more, but all around the same.
My pendant came in looking completely different than the one they have pictured, but I actually like it better than theirs shown, so it works for me. Just keep in mind no two of these will look alike, so it may not look as pictured. Mine actually has less of the amethyst look at the bottom and more of the geode at the top, but it looks unique. The top has 3 bands of different colored geode sections. I like that it has gold plating around it to make it sturdier. It comes with a rope type of adjustable chain, which is the kind I prefer. It would make a nice gift item. It comes with a bag to store it in or to use as a gift bag.
My youngest daughter is a licensed massage therapist, and she believes in the power of crystals, stones, holistic medicine, etc. She's been facing some very serious health issues so when I saw this I KNEW this was the PERFECT necklace for her! I thought it was pretty on the web page, and when it came in, it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! It's a little on the large side for necklaces, but the size dimensions are listed in the ad, and they are accurately depicted. I only mention this, because I know sometimes people are guilty of not really reading the size details then want to complain once they recieve the item if they think it looks "too big" or "too gaudy". So if you only like smaller sized items, this probably wouldn't be the necklace for you. It isn't HUGE though, just a little on the larger size lol. The way it's cut, and the markings on it are just beautiful though. It comes with a vegan cord for a "chain". My daughter was so thrilled that tears literally sprang to her eyes. I most definitely recommend this!
The gold trim around the amethyst is quite thin, but has a very high gloss that sets the stone off nicely. The amethyst, itself, looks very much like the picture on Amazon product pages, but with slight variation. The tightly woven black leather necklace has a solid closure and looks good with the pendant. This would make a great gift for a friend -- or maybe just to treat yourself.
