I own so many Saskia pieces at this point and I love them all but I've been eyeing this one for awhile now. All her pieces get compliments when worn or given as gifts but I knew I could wear this particular piece with so many different outfits. Sometimes I can't wear a particular necklace because of a collar or neckline that doesn't work with the length so I like the fact that you can wear the Black Nile long...or double or triple it. (or use as a bracelet) The black and brass goes with everything and the fact that you can wear it at different lengths makes it that much more versatile. I actually bought the Sphinx necklace with this to further give myself options since they look great together or separately.
