I bought this on the 25% flash sale, but I am not rich so this was still a huge amount of money for me. However it is a stunning and unique piece of jewellery. The metals are a little darker than pictured and the 2-tone effect is not my personal favorite, so I am hoping the brass rings will tarnish a little over time to blend in more with the bronze chains. I also wasn't sure if it would stay in place - I was afraid that every time I leaned over the whole thing would fall forward, but it doesn't. It is a beautiful neckpiece that was well designed by a very talented artist. Also it can be worn with almost anything, even over top of clothing and not just on a bare neckline. Based on cost-per-use considering how often I will wear it, it was worth it.
