    Comments about UncommonGoods Dopamine Necklace:

    The charm is amazing. Unfortunately, the chain broke the first day worn. The o-rings holding the clasp to the chain separated and the necklace fell off. Ended up purchasing a new chain that would hold the weight of the charm after fixing it and having it start to separate again.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was great!
