I bought this necklace for my six year old niece. Unfortunately, she ended up getting ill, and I had just about forgotten that I had purchased this for her. She is now seven, and just loves Disney princesses, dressing up, makeup, and of course jewelry. The chain was a good length for a girl her age, if it was for me, it would have to be a bit longer. The Swarovski crystals catch the light beautifully, and it is in the light, or outside, that you get even more appreciation for this pendant. It has not irritated her skin, nor has it tarnished. I would recommend this necklace to anyone purchasing a gift for a young girl, I'm sure it could work for teens, and adults too, it is just personal preference.
