This necklace was an inspiration as a military wife, as well as my appreciation for all whom serve in the military, whether we are wives, husbands, sons, daughters, ect we can all agree our appreciation for those whom serve our country is important, and all whom serve have our gratitude. God bless! Great piece for any event, wedding, cosplay, costume, or renaissance play. Necklace length measures appropriately between 14-16 inches with extender. Hypo allergenic. Made for those with metal allergies. Safe for giving when you don't really know if they have a metal allergy. I hope you'll like these as much as I love them. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Thanks for looking!
