Quality: Very Good! I have the white factory version but this retail version is very heavy and higher quality (though I am no fantasy jewelry expert)  The color is stunning, a very bright coral red.

Fit: There is an adjustable clasp so you can play with the length of the necklace

Pros: The color – simply stunning – the quality, the look

Cons: A little heavy and may be too much for some but I love it!

OI: White and Florals

This week has seen lots of white at eBelandi. If you recall, one of my goals this spring is to wear lots of white with lace and pastel hues, per this inspiration.  I have  along way to go on the pastel hues, and could do better on the white combination.  Some outfit ideas below, let me know which you like best! I will be updating the links later today.

A side note: I was able to get the factory version of the rose necklace from the crew.  I am not much of a jewelry girl, I tend to wear the same pieces.  But the white roses were pretty (or have I just been assimilated from seeing so many rose necklaces on other bloggers…:( 😦 ) Regardless, it seems to be available online, though on another color. A close up below. And the usual poll below!
