"This is how a piece of art looks like ! "
Trying to remember when exactly I got it ! May be a month or two back but I have been wearing this every day ! I bought several necklaces from Novica & I love all of them but this probably the most expensive piece of all & most simple yet elegant piece of jewelry I have . A simple turn of the pendant from a square to a diamond made all the difference . The color of the stone is so stunningly understated , it just blends with every thing without losing it?s distinctive presence ! People notice & complement .?? The chain is robust & just the right length for me . Thank you Artists for creating these wonderful pieces & thank you Novica for bringing these Artisans to us ??????
- Wearing every day but I know it can be dressy too !
