This is an outstanding necklace. A V shape in the front and let me give you a measurement from the Chevron to the point is 3 and a quarter the length of the necklace from the drop point to the clasp is 9 and 3/4 inches. There are a few stones that have change color. Or have had some sort of liquid perfume whatever hit them and there is some discoloration it does not change the value or the workmanship of this necklace. It is clearly marked at the clasp. The Centerstone in the front measures roughly half an inch. I have often called this my X and O necklace. Wonderful for the bride.
