I received this necklace for Christmas from my son and daughter-in-law. I love it so much and have not taken it off since then. The chain is long enough . There is an oak tree (which I love as it is the symbol of family and strength) and a circular disc with an initial for each of my family members including my husband and myself. That is my email address - a letter from oldest (dad) to the youngest. I love it so very much and might even say it is one of my favorite gifts because it is thoughtful and about my family. I cried when I saw it. I highly recommend this necklace.
