I received one recently and it is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I love that charms can be added for each birthday, anniversary, Christmas, different special events, etc. Lots of women change out charms depending on their outfits-I might go from all silver to only purple and gold for a game, or only pink for valentines day, etc.
it is a fabulous gift!!!!
I know that the hallmarks sell a collection of beads that will fit on their also. They are very inexpensive...maybe 6$ a piece? I don't know what the difference is between those and the 30$ ones at the jewelry store.
My daughter has one also (she's 8) and it is a great present for her b. we can buy her charms to add on her different special days. A cross for first Eucharist, ballet slipper for a recital, etc.
Eta. 2/3 with 2 stoppers is perfect. I recommend a local jeweler before a chain. They have jewelers in house so they can fix it there and don't have to mail it off. I bought my mom one..she needed an adjustment...they had it sautered and fixed right in 10 min.
