This is a beautiful set the stainless steel chain(I think) is very interesting and very strong not officially marked. The Sterling pendant is marked 925 and is Rhodonite a beautiful ore that is very hard and has a beautiful color. It has been mounted professionally and is in a tear shape setting of sterling. It is bezel set in a fancy work in sterling. The stainless steel chain is a fancy type of link. The sterling Rhodonite set has a small garnet set in the bale as a point of interest. The chain is 22 inches long and the set is 2 1/4 inch with the bale and has great color and lines in the gem. For you from Kansas, if you don't think you are pleased with this set and you order it you may return it no questions asked.
