People often think that gold plated jewelry is equivalent to faux gold pieces, but it is assuredly not so. The gold used for plating is real gold of premium quality, the same metal that is used to make jewelry, so the gold plating here is 100% genuine and imparts a long-lasting polish. This necklace has a sterling silver base with gold finishing, and is the epitome of ultra-thin jewelry pieces. The pendant is in the form of a long teardrop, which is studded with white cubic zirconia stones, to heighten its allure. Slim and lightweight, it can be worn on a daily basis with a pair of sleek danglers.
