    Comments about CHINESE ZODIAC DIAMOND NECKLACES:

    this necklace is an itty bitty little treasure. as others have noted yes, the chain is a throw away but the charm itself is completely adorable!! the charm alone on the artist website is 90 by the way (why i'm still giving 5 stars). this would make an excellent gift because the uncommon goods packaging is amazing. it's really impressive the box and the little 'sweater' they put the box in are darling. i did not have it gift wrapped by the way, this is just their packaging.

    Comments about CHINESE ZODIAC DIAMOND NECKLACES:

    I love all things chicken, so I had to buy this for myself in the Rooster. It is indeed very small and delicate, but I like that as it keeps it from looking tacky or overwhelming. The rooster is adorable and I like the chain length. (I don't like very long necklaces.) It does tangle a bit easily when in its box, so I just make sure to store it carefully. Otherwise, absolutely no complaints. It is a beautiful, fun, and unusual piece. I love it!

    I gave this rabbit pendant for my second grand-daughter's first birthday and chose the dog for her sister who is 7.
    It is exquisite and small, perfect for a special occasion as a child and every day wear as an adult.

      I chose this gift for my grand-daughter's birthday who will be 7 years old. A diamond is always special. The petite size is perfect and very feminine.

        Comments about CHINESE ZODIAC DIAMOND NECKLACES:

        Gave this neclace to my girlfriend. First thing I said when I saw it was "huh. It's smaller than I thought". After looking a bit more closely, I noticed the finish on the chain was chipped off in a few places. Then, we tried it on, and the neclace rides way too high with the chain it came with. The charm, itself is cute (got the tiger), and appears to be well made, but it cant be worn until I find a new chain for it. The one it comes with is just junk.

            This was a great purchase! It is small and elegant, and is very light! It has just the right amount of sparkle, and isn't flashy in the least! I can wear it on any occasion, with any outfit, and on any day of the week (although I am going to wear it everyday anyway). I would definitely recommend this to a friend! It is cute and meaningful!
