gold chain and clasp on necklace was so fine it was impossible to fasten and the gems on ring were cloudy and did not match the necklace
The garnets are spectacular being a beautiful magnificent emerald green and the sparkle from them is magnificent. They obviously are not large gems and I wouldn't know if any have been found larger than those inserted in this necklace. The gold chain however is thin, fragile, being a 16 inch with 2 inch extender and a clasp difficult to open and close, at least for me and since it was meant as a gift, the same problem applies for the intended recipient. Why use such a thin chain beats me. Unfortunately, I returned it after much debate. Maybe I should rate it 4 stars but the gems won out. I know fabulous gems when I see them.
