    So, I had posted before saying I was in need of a necklace for a shower gift to my Mom and FMIL. Yari suggested etsy and I did find a necklace that has the simplicity and a pearl...both things im looking for. Anyhow, the problem is its only gold filled, FI thinks thats not good for the price...It was 75- and since im ordering two she dropped it to 65-...I dont want to spend any more than 100, she offers real gold but it would be 135 each.
    What do you girls think? Is it worth it, or a rip off or is it going to look cheap that im giving only a gold filled necklace?

        Thanks Lauren.....Im basically looking for a peral pendant because its simple and timeless but I would like it to have a lil something more to it...if that makes sense. I would like it to be gold but silver would work too! I appreciate your help.

                  I also think it is pretty but not $65 pretty. A, a custom jeweler can give you a better price and B, I am allergic to nickel so gold filled anything causes a breakout. Do your girls have any sensitivities? Do you have time to continue looking? what about ebay?

                    I own a jewelry shop and I agree that $65 is too much for that necklace if it's GF. It doesn't say how big the pearl is...but it a cultured one and should make that much difference.
                    You could easily make something yourself for allot cheaper. If you want guidance on design, contruction, or where to get supplies...just let me know. A necklace just like that would take 10 min max.
