I'm not sure right away what to think of this necklace so I guess I'm a bit disappointed. It does resemble the one in the photograph but not very closely. The emerald in the middle of the cross is not as big and green as in the picture. Also the detail in the silver is not as elegant. The chain is very delicate; the spring in the claw of mine is seized so I will be switching chains in order to not loose the pendant. I would not buy this again but I will not return it, either. It's just not as nice as the picture or as nice as I expected.
