I've bought several rings from this company and this was the first time to buy a necklace and pendant. Just as expected, this necklace (and pendant) is thick, strong, heavy (which I like) and an eye catcher. The only problem I had was the end ring was too large to pass my new pendant over, so I had to remove it. But the link at the end (like the rest) is large enough to capture the spring-loaded clip on the opposite end once I put it on my neck. I definitely recommend this necklace!
