Organic by design, this gemstone necklace features a carnelian bezel-set in gold vermeil with a matching rolo chain.
The carnelian pendant necklace is pretty, however, the stone can- and did, in my case- include inclusions or darker spots.This may be what you can expect in a natural semi precious stone, however, the stone that is in the picture online does not have any dark spots!! Also, the necklace ( chain) is very thin, and, like many Blue Nile necklaces, the closure is very hard to use, it hurts my fingers to fasten the necklace. I decided to keep it, since it goes very well with carnelian earrings that I already owned, and that have darker as well as lighter orange stones in it. All in all, I can recommend the necklace if you like carnelian, but do not expect a perfect necklace. And maybe you cannot expect one at this price!

I had bought the earrings previously and this matches perfectly. I like being able to adjust the size of the chain. The chain itself is something I would not buy on its own, because its quality detracts a little from the unique carnelian.
