I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this online. It's hard to judge from photos how the quality of a necklace will be in "person". I have to say, it is absolutely worth every dime! Georgeous detail on the turtle, decent weight for a small pennant. The turtle is about 1/2" long from tip to bottom.
The chain is the perfect weight for the necklace. It is not a rough-n-tough chain but is nice, so expect it to last a lifetime if you are not hard on jewelry. The back of the turtle is concave, and open. In other words it is not a flat, solid turtle. But, it is very nice, and of the same quality you would expect from a nice jewelry store.
