Hmm, well....it's not really what I was expecting to be honest. I bought it in the recent lightning deal as a Christmas gift to go with the earrings, which I had already purchased. I really like the earrings, they are just the right size and came in a classy looking hinged black and gold presentation box.
The pendant however, arrived jumbled inside a little plastic bag, which had been placed in a somewhat inferior looking black cardboard lidded box, with the Ornami label loose inside, as if it had been chucked in as an afterthought. Ok, you can take it out of the bag, put the label on and arrange it in the box before you give it, but then you shouldn't really have to...not what I was expecting when the earrings were so nicely presented.
Also...the size. Now, I KNOW it says 2cm in the description, but it looks larger than that to me on the woman's neck in the photo, it is actually the same size as the earrings, and was smaller than I was expecting. I measured it (see photos) and it is just about 2cm if you count the bale. The actual owl is not 2cm. I feel it looks rather insignificant at the end of a long chain. It's pretty, and well made, but all in all I don't think the intended recipient would like it much. I will stick with just the earrings, which I know she will like and return this.
