I love this necklace for a couple of reasons ..... it's unusal and I love birds. I don't know if you can notice it in this pic but there is a pretty little pearl in the nest. What do you think of it? I only wish it were in silver or white gold. I'm really not a yellow gold fan. Alex Monroe - $175 Actually, this is 22k gold-plated sterlling silver. Why didn't they just leave it silver.
