This was a special order necklace that shipped off today. It is 40 inches long and wraps around only twice, but is designed to have all of the connectors in the front of the necklace for maximum impact. The best thing is that these are double sided connectors, so even if they flipped over while you were wearing it, it would be just as pretty. I am always doing customer designs for clients, and it is not as expensive as one would think. Of course if this necklace were in sterling silver and real pearls, then the cost would be at least 5 figures. This one was only 3.
