I bought this necklace on sale, and I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it. It's very comfy - there is no clasp, and the back of the necklace is simply cord. It's a good length to wear with any neckline, and I like the number of strands. That said, the material used to make this necklace is cheap! It's not genuine turquoise - there are several chips of whatever material it is that have white edges (looks like plastic). Since there are so many strands, I simply turn those pieces to the back where they're hidden. I would have returned this necklace had I paid full price for it, as I was disappointed in the quality of the "turquoise." For the price I paid, I will wear it until the white spots are too noticeable, and then donate it to goodwill. Cheap and easy summer costume jewelry for when you want a pop of color. If you want a statement piece of quality turquoise, pick a different necklace.
