I absolutely love this chain! I was struggling to wear my two boys silhouettes separate because my chains would tangle and I haven’t taken this one off since having both charms put on it! I love it so much!
I was a bit disappointed in the size of the links. The necklace above appears to have larger links. Also the necklace seems to be tarnishing which surprised me because it’s 14k white gold. Maybe I ordered the wrong necklace. I will have to go out to the website to look further. Victoria M
Dear Victoria, This is Vana, the owner of VCS. I am sorry to hear you aren't completely happy with the chain. The chain you received it what was ordered and what our photos show. We don't make the dainty paper clip chain any smaller. Also, make sure you didn't mean to order the medium weight which has larger links. Regarding the chain tarnishing, 14K gold doesn't tarnish. I checked and you did order the 14K white gold. All our white gold chains are also rhodium plated. Over time rhodium wears off and we can happily replate it for you. This is completely normal and not an issue with the chain but rather depends on how the piece is worn. Just like our wedding rings, white gold will look doll if not replated over time. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me personally if you have other issues. Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org
