At first the idea didn't appeal to me at all but then after the funeral I changed my mind and decided I'd have a pendant. When it arrived I found I couldn't wear it comfortably as the chain was short, very close fitting and my thumbs wouldn't work to do up the tiny clasp when I'd got it on and if I did manage to do it up then it was very difficult to undo. So for months it sat in it's little box until I found a suitable longer delicate chain..........from a car boot sale of course! But then I couldn't get the pendant off the original chain to thread on the new one so it sat in the box for another few weeks.
Until finally I remembered to take it to a jewellers and asked if they could swap it over and yes they could. They have the tools and the magnification to open the tiny links and didn't mind that the long chain wasn't gold. ( A long gold chain would have been several hundred pounds)
And even though you can't see the pendant when I have it on, I know it's there.
