please note that this chain does tarnish and requires regular polishing to look its best. i still would purchase, particularly when on sale, since the value for this large chain is excellent; even 14k gold-filled would be cost prohibitive. might try applying a protective coating by spraying lightly with a very good quality clear top coat, which has worked very well for me in the past. note that this is an update to my previous review, "STUNNING!!!"
This chain is STUNNING!!! Thick with a great weight, but VERY easy to work with; i was quite pleasantly surprised. Lovely gold color, very close to 14k. Such a classic look to dress up a winter sweater at such a low price; everyone wants my necklace. I have a 14k bracelet bought years & years ago and looks great with this chain.Thank you artbeads for offering this wonderful chain at an affordable price!
