Probably not your typical review for this product, but I am a late-30s mom who thinks she "used to be cool." 11 years and three kids down the road, I am coming back into my own, have gotten somewhat back into shape, am fighting the slow and inevitable drift into "mom style," and told my husband that I wanted a thick "gangsta" chain. I found a choker with this chain style at the infamous shop for teens and 20-somethings that old-ladies-who-think-they-used-to-be-cool sometimes still browse through on occasion, but the thing was made to fit a 2-year old's neck. After some web-searching, and a quick decision that paying for a full silver version is just nutso crazy, my husband suggested I try this stainless steel version first to see if I liked the style before shelling out for silver. Turns out that was a great decision. For a MUCH more reasonable price, I was able to get the exact style and size I wanted. I wanted to make sure it was just the right thickness and length, and this listing had plenty of options. I ordered the 9mm 20" and I love it. It's got a heaviness, but not so much that it's irritating. I'm happy to report, and a little surprised, that it doesn't get tangled in my hair or rip my hair out. The only difference between this and the one I initially found is that this is a darker silver shade, so it's not going to be super bright flashy like some of the plated ones, or real silver. But, I actually don't mind the darker shade since I think it matches some of my other jewelry. The chain came in a little pouch, and my husband was able to use a polishing cloth to shine it up a bit. The ONLY thing I don't love about it is that the closing ring on it is kinda weak and thin, so it can be slightly tricky to get hooked and probably isn't the strongest. Other than that, I think it's a solid piece for the price. I kind of want one for my son, so I will probably order a slightly shorter one for him in the future.
