This is a real nice combination of colors. The picture is just about true to color. Just a tad deeper in real. I have a charoite pendant on the pendant page that goes well with it & on the Jewelry set page there is a pendant & earrings inlaid with some of the purple spiny oyster in it that also works or it just fine the way it is! It is adjustable from 16" to 19". Looks good twisted. The strands in the close up are about 1/3 larger than the real thing.
