Beautiful jewelry and fast shipment.
The necklace arrived and was beautifully done. The most unusual and outstanding part of the process was when I forgot to add a promo code and before I could send a message I received an email that they had noticed I forgot the promo code and had already applied it to my order. I have never seen such assistance before. I will be looking at other pieces from this site due to this outstanding service. Patty
