Beautiful Items. Fantastic seller. unbelievably excellent communication. Lovely lady. Thank you Merry.

Just as described, and promptly shipped. Thank you very much!

Perfect! Arrived in a timely matter. Beautiful!

Update to prior review 8-30-2021: I am pleased to update my earlier review now that the necklace just arrived. I am happy to report that it's perfect! I just wish I ordered the Medium size too but since I don't want a repeat of the customs issues, I need more time to think about that. Mery was very patient and as helpful as she could be in light of the fact the issue was out of her control. Thanks, Mery! Prior review: If you live in an area that requires this item to run through customs, buyer beware. I ordered the necklace on 7/25 - a month ago, and still have no delivery date in sight as it's stalled in Customs. I've been patiently working with Mery who has been proactive with communicating the reasons for the delay but still no date:(. Next time, I'll buy from local suppliers, even if the cost is slightly more.
