        This is a beautiful and unique gift that my wife really loved. Unfortunately, UG really needs to work on presentation. I paid the $5 to get it "gift wrapped" and it showed up crammed in a plastic ziplock bag - tangled I might add - encased in a box, inside a felt-like bag with a gift note all prominently displaying "Uncommon Goods" on them. Absolutely tasteless presentation.

        I've given the product 4 stars, but the actual necklace warranted a 5 while the "wrapping" and presentation by UG deserves a solid 0. If you get the product, don't waste your money on UG gift wrapping and be prepared with your own jewelry box and wrapping.

            Why isn't there a card in the box with the necklace that describes the meaning of the different stones in the necklace.

            Service and delivery comments:

            My order was delivered to the wrong address, consequently I didn't get it until after Christmas, which really sucked.

              I bought this pendant as a birthday gift for my fiancee and she was absolutely delighted. The pendant is so beautiful and finely crafted as well. The size of this item is larger than I expected and adds to the overall stunning visual presence of this item. The symbolism contained within the piece is amazing.

                There is always a bit of concern when ordering something online as it might not look exactly as pictured. This was not one of those situations. The necklace was a gift for my girlfriend and she truly adores it. So much so that she has worn it every day since she's received it. That alone has made it worth it as she has a large amount of jewlery that she will wear, and is frequently changing.

                  Love the meaning behind this gift, but didn't like how the meaning didn't come with the necklace. I had to type and print it up to include with my gift.

                            I compared the necklace I received to the one in the catalog. The necklace that I received has noticably fewer crystals and is less colorful than the necklace that I thought I was buying. I feel that my daughter, who chose this item from the catalog, will also be diappointed in her gift. And at [$], I feel a little ripped off.
