I looked extensively for, and found this particular necklace online, and ordered it to be sent directly to my dearest friend as a birthday gift, so I never saw it in person. She has just received it and told me she loves it! I selected it primarily because it was hand made in Texas, specifically San Antonio; my friend was born in Austin, but came to SA as an infant, so she calls San Antonio home. I also chose the Gigi for the blue of the stone that was the closest I could find to a sapphire, my friend's birth stone. I also chose it for the toggle clasp which is a key determining factor in necklaces, for both my friend & me. I mainly chose it because I wanted a classy, locally made, hand-made and well made, attractive and beautiful gift for my best friend. Thank you!
