I treasure this birthday gift. I believe it's a stamped design, or at least has that effect. My girlfriend had a long chain put on it. I prefer to place necklaces over my head for their ease of use. I can't be bothered fumbling with a clasp behind my neck. Its two-hole attachment also does away with a single fastener, the kind that eventually works it way around to the front. So, thank you dearest friend. You know me so well.
