When this package arrived, my hands were kneading bread and I asked my husband to open it. He was very impressed!.. He said will $500 help you pay for it? I said sure! *chuckle* Then I showed him the enclosed bill... He said, is that what you pay every month? I said, no, that's the price of the necklace...it's 18k over bronze. He loved it. Now, my husband doesn't usually comment on my jewelry...this time he did without being asked. It's beautiful.. It's lightweight...it won't wear you out wearing it. You'll love it!
