Jewelry arrived promptly and was very well made and nicely packaged. I gave 2 as gifts and both people loved them!
The microscopic lettering is a neat idea, I really appreciate the technology of doing that, but the magnifying glass that comes with the pendant isn't strong enough to actually read the words. I have a 15x jeweler's loupe which worked much better. The bail is very small and I couldn't get the chain off without difficulty as it has endcaps; I never wear 18' chains and wanted to put my own 16' snake chain on instead. I managed it, but it was a struggle. I also had to tighten the prongs at the back of the pendant as the onyx was loose. The pendant doesn't flip when I wear it, so the back doesn't show, but it does look a little cheap on the back. I am very pleased with the size of the pendant. I didn't want anything tiny or too bold and this is perfect. I bought the silver framed version. I thought that the gold lettering/pictures on the front would work with a gold chain, but I didn't love that look. A silver chain looks better. Overall, I really like the pendant but I did have to fiddle with it to get it how I wanted it.
I bought this as a 35th birthday gift for my sister who's into horoscopes and astrology. I liked that it looks more adult than a lot of the other horoscope based charms and all the information it contains. My biggest issue is that the writing is so tiny that even with the included magnifying glass none of us could clearly read the words describing cancer's characteristics that border the charm. The words look like gold dashes without the magnifying glass, and with it, certain words I could guess like 'shy' only because I could make out there were 3 letters in the word. Luckily she's a crab sign, but I would be afraid if it was a more complex sign, you wouldn't be able to make it out because it's printed small. The star chart on the bottom is barely visible. They should include a microscope to read this thing. On the plus side, it's very well made. I sprung for the 14k version and both the charm and necklace were stamped 14k and made in Italy. They don't show the back of the charm in the photos, but it's basically a gold frame, so you see the stone in the back with the little triangles of gold holding it in place. She commented that she loved the necklace because it's a thicker chain so she doesn't have to worry about it breaking and can use it with other jewelry. Although I'm disappointed that the charm isn't a little bigger so that you could read it clearer, my sister was very happy with it.
