It clearly is a beautiful piece. Our problem is the chain is too short for my wife to wear it. We anticipated this, so we also ordered a longer, and somewhat stronger chain. Unfortunately, the opening on the necklace is too small to either remove the old chain, or to replace it with our longer chain without damaging the hummingbird. Update: The seller provided the option to either return the piece and get our money back, or to adjust its connection so that it could take our chain. We chose to return it for adjustment to accommodate our larger chain and they fixed it at no additional cost.
