Bigger than announced and very shiny – Snakeskin Style Silver Plated Necklace (58CM) Reviews

Pros:
It has very good build quality, very nice necklace.
Cons:
* It sais 58cm but actually it has 63cm.
* It is really too shiny. Might look great on a woman's neck but on guys it looks strange.
Other:
I dipped my necklace into Ferric Cloride (FeCl3, used as etchant for electronics PCB circuit) and the "too shiny" problem was solved.
I left it in the acid for about 7 seconds and the chrome darkened a lot. I think i could have left it less time in the acid.
Maybe just a quick dip would be fine.
But it looks much more manlike now, much more rustic.
Bottomline:
I had to buy another one (48cm) because this one is too big to use without a pendant.
