This necklace is beautiful and excellent quality. I bought this piece a year ago, and I have worn it almost every day since. And when I say “worn it every day“, I mean: day, night, sleep, shower, swim, exercising, ocean, EVERYTHING, and it looks just as beautiful as it did when it arrived. I have been worried that creams and sunscreens might affect it, but so far they have not. I have cleaned it as instructed a few times, and I find that this helps keep the crystal clear and sparkly, but in general it needs very little care. In fact, I actually think wearing it in the shower helps to keep the necklace shiny and bright. I was nervous about buying jewellery online, but I am so impressed with the quality and durability. I have a similar chain in solid 9ct gold and it is so thin and fragile in comparison and cost me twice as much. I never worry about the floating bijou chain breaking; it is not too fine and it is very strong. Definitely worth investing in! I’d love to see a bracelet version of this!
