Its layered with many chains and every chain is having links beautifully connected to each other. The way gemstones are strung to the necklace in a way I just wonder how it's been made. Everything is so beautiful about this necklace. Its an unusual piece of beauty which is more of an art than just jewellery. The packaging box it came in. The thank you card from Dinari. I am just a fan! What an experience. Will definitely order more designs from them. Thank you!
