Excellent craftsmanship, lovely bear pendant infused with culture and mythology, the chain itself is well-wrought, substantial without being thick and has a nice large clasp, additional length/safety chain (not very long tho) and a special feature that keeps the pendant from sliding off the chain so as to never lose it. Very lovely as a gift or present for yourself :)
ProsSolid, well-made, beautifully crafted, large clasp, safety/xtra length, pendant secured to chain but not fixed.
ConsChain length is ridiculously short. I am average height and weight, I couldn?t wear this as a choker if I even wanted to. This is my fault for being so charmed by the bear I neglected to read the specs more carefully. I am usually good about reading but I looked at several of pieces of jewelry at once and somehow missed this.. most of the other minimum chain lengths were the same and it got jumbled in my head. Regardless, I definitely would have ordered it anyway for the pendant and repurposed the chain. ..
The chain length is disappointing but the problem is that the bear pendant cannot be simply removed from the chain. Until I can take it to a jeweler, I am wearing it as a bracelet (which is nice because I can see the bear :) but this is definitely something one should know before buying this necklace, which is still worthy of being added to any jewelry collection. Ideal for a child, small teen, or extremely petite and ultra slim adult or as a bracelet for average to large adults.
