This is really pretty in person
This is really pretty in person, and a decent size. it isn't one of those tiny, easily mistaken for something else, type of pendants once it's worn. the black is a sort of resin and shiny, like pvc. the cross itself is thin, and since pewter is a soft metal, i paid to have it gift-wrapped to be sure it stayed straight in shipping. i got the cord with it, but i'm allergic to nickel and just threw it away like i do all cords, chains, etc. this cross looks gorgeous hanging from black ribbon. it's beautiful.
