    Congrats on being in the top design picks for the month. I love this design. I think you deserved the honor. This is a beautiful necklace. I am a Sept. baby so I have been collecting saphires for a while now. Sorry don’t feel I can spell worth a hoot tonight. but must hurry go to bed before 12am. I have a very pretty pradpradash saphire, I’ve yet to have mounted it is such a pretty color. This necklace is just gorgeous. Love it.
