I got this to use as a single charm on a multi-strand bracelet of moonstones & Swarovski crystals. It's hanging with the translucent side on the bottom & as I wear the bracelet I'm looking at the chessboard crystal from the top down. It sparkles like I expected it to, but I was charmed & enchanted by the AB colors. Seem from the top down, they are amazing, almost as if the crystal is glowing with its own light. Amazing.

I was reluctant due to the cut in this crystal. To my amazement it is one georgeous crystal. I will make it for single pendant necklace.
