I have always wanted a gold chain that was substantial, and that would be visible wearing out at night. I looked all over the internet for something cheaper that I could get instead of this. Nope, it had to be this one, and it had to be 20". I self-gifted it for my 40th birthday with no regrets! It's absolutely beautiful, and I wear it constantly. The clasp is so small that it blends in with the chain links, which is a nice touch (but I never have trouble finding it when I need to).
