I was surprised to see this necklace available on Ebay for just $45. It was $10 more than the original retail price, but still affordable for me.
The necklace is beautiful and very sparkly.
It is somewhat heavy and very much a statement piece. Some people feel that the necklace looked cheap on Kate when she wore it to the premiere of Mandela, but I think it is a very good example of how well made costume jewelry can be.
I am happy with my necklace and I think I will wear it to many events and parties.
