Review of Product: I love socially responsible gifts like this necklace. The Women’s Bean Project is such a good cause and I love supporting such good efforts! This necklace is a beautiful deep purple color that coordinates really well with a lot of my clothing. It’s a unique piece of jewelry that I feel great about wearing and always receive a lot of compliments on.
