My necklaces arrived today and they are exactly as pictured. I am thrilled with both of them: one rose quartz and one amethyst. In the past, I have lost many crystals when my beads broke and scattered everywhere. No problem with these pieces! My only issue was with the shipping time. I waited several weeks, for my order, but it was certainly worth the wait. I shall definitely order again from this company and recommend it to my friends. Thanks so much!
