Friends and close family have long know that I am fond of butterflies and as I was moving out of town and wanted to give my 13 year old daughter some jewelry with a butterfly that was pretty and neither too small or too big. This butterfly necklace fit the bill nicely . The butterfly is a good size and the black leather cord is nice and sturdy without looking overly durable. I was particularly wanting a piece of jewelry for my daughter which would be not "too delicate", as a young lady learns how to handle jewelry so that it lasts a long time.
In the bright sunlight this piece looks fantastic. The Swarovski crystals sparkles like a prism. I am very happy with my purchase and if your making this purchase I think you will be too.
