      Comments about RAW GEMSTONE NECKLACE:

      I love this pendant. I chose the citrine because I thought it would look the best of the three choices but also because by coincidence it's my husband's birthstone (and I still like him, etc.). I changed the chain to something a little sturdier to match the stone. Now, it's just right. I was concerned upon making the purchase especially because of the uncut, unpolished nature of the stone and the fact that I wouldn't be able to return it if I didn't like it after all. That was a little risky. I'm glad I took the risk because what I have now is even better than I imagined. There are many ways it could have sucked, and none of them manifested. If you are wondering whether this pendant is worth the risk, at least now you have my case to take into consideration.
