    Comments about TREE OF LIFE NECKLACE - FOUR SEASONS:

    My boyfriend bought this for me for Valentine's Day and it was the first time he said he loved me. This means a lot, however, I've started to notice a metallic scent coming from it. What are the suggestions for cleaning? I was going to email the vendor, but I can't find an address. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Comments about TREE OF LIFE NECKLACE - FOUR SEASONS:

    I recognized the necklace as "a Tree of Life" and I do love it. My daughter, who is currently in Afghanistan, sent it to me. The first time I wore it, someone stopped me and told me how stunning it was and asked, "where did I get it".

        Comments about TREE OF LIFE NECKLACE - FOUR SEASONS:

        Received this gift as a one year anniversary present. My boyfriend described the seasons of the tree as one full year we have spent together. Literally brought me to tears. It is obviously unique and the craftsmanship put into making it makes it even more special. I always get compliments on it and people ask me where it is from. The only thing I can say I would change is the size of the pendant; it is a bit large and sometimes hinders me from wearing it with more outfits. if the chain was a bit shorter (so the necklace actually laid higher up than it does i think that would work well with the size. Maybe I will get a new chain to make this happen. Otherwise, a great gift that can have many meanings to many people.

                We bought this for our daughter's sixteenth birthday. She loves it! I drove her to school today while she was wearing it. Maybe one of our best purchases for her.

                  I purchased this necklace as a present for my sister who is going to school for forestry. She absolutely loved it. The only con I can think of is that I wish the length of the chain was slightly longer. I have seen similar necklaces before but this is the most beautiful by far and the stone work was perfectly unique.
