I think we girls know the best presents are the ones we buy for ourselves. I was in love with this pendant in the "C" initial and put it on layaway the month before my birthday. I had every intention of making the payments over three months but when my birthday came, I just had to have it even if it meant I had to eat SpaghettiOs for the rest of the month. I absolutely adore this pendant ! It is the nicest initial pendant I have come across among several retailers. It is not real heavy but the disc is not wafer thin either. The 22 inch chain is fully adjustable and the disc can be removed to wear on other chains or the chain can be used with other pendants. If you initial is available, give it a try. You will not regret it. It quickly became my signature piece !
