I bought this item as part of a gift to my mother and as soon as I opened it, I knew she would be thrilled.
When I first placed the order, I was a little bit worried when I saw the estimated date of arrival (as it was cutting it a bit fine!) but it arrived at least 3 weeks earlier than originally anticipated - which was a relief.
The brooch was very well packaged and as soon as it was unwrapped, my mum was wearing it! It is a very pretty piece which is neither too big nor small.
I would say that if you are thinking "should I, shouldn't I", go for it, I doubt you'll be disappointed.
