This is a beautiful necklace that has a very naturalistic feel to it. The cording is matte which makes the shine of the pearls stand out even more. The knots and alternating pearl design are elegant. Easy to put on by slipping it over your head you have two ways to wear it. Wear it with the knot and strands at the front or wear them at the back with a nice clean look at the front. This is a truly versatile piece that can be worn with a number of looks.
