Wow expensive, and judging by the dimensions you wouldn't have very much space on that paper for writing anything too momentous

Too pricey, and I think it needs to be longer. Good that it does come with a piece of paper that will fit in there so no guessing.

I love the neclace and the idea of it. But $120 for a rope neclace? How about a lower price for the rope and the $120 higher price for silver?

Thank you all for your feedback on this precious Prayer Capsule Necklace!To answer your questions about price, this handmade necklace features and actual silk cord and an intricately engraved sterling silver pendant.Not only does the price factor in the cost of materials, but also the cost of providing fair wages to the artisans in Indonesia that skillfully craft these pieces. What prayer, mantra, or words of wisdom would you write on the included blank scroll?

Way too expensive for something like this. You can find the same kind of quality for a quarter of the cost on other websites.

It's a bit overpriced for what it is. It has been my experience when I buy jewlry from here that it rarely lives up to the photos.

Hi, Leslie! Thanks for sharing your perspective with us. Many of our jewelry designs are handmade using unique materials, so they do cost a bit more than mass-produced goods. We strive to provide accurate and detailed photos, and include as much information regarding the materials, size, and origin of the piece in the product story as we can.

Nice. Another material would make it more affordable. The fact that it was not made in the USA would stop me from purchasing even at a lower price point.

Too pricey -- maybe if it was a chain and not a piece of cheap rope I could see charging more. But this looks like it belongs in a gift shop and cost no more then $9.99

Love the concept. I like that it is sterling, it makes the piece more special - but it's very expensive. This is a piece that I would want but ultimately would not buy at that price.

Expensive but I'd love to have this as a little reminder of a certain prayer. Maybe one I can slip in my purse rather than hang on my neck. It would be nice to have a bigger one too (not a necklace) to bury with someone as your last wishes to them. But I do like this! Pretty capsule.
