This real dandelion seed necklace is a glass oval on a strong chain. It is gorgeous! The necklace come beautifully packaged in a nice gift ready box that will be a hit for sure! I love the symbolism and the beauty of this necklace. I took it out of the box, made a wish and wore it! It might not make my wish come true but it helps me to kee a positive outlook towards it! The oval is glass with a full blown dandelion seed encased in it. It is wrapped in wire with a wish placard hanging from it on the chain. I smile every time I wear it!
