I can't say enough about what a beautiful, quality piece of jewelry this is for a man or a woman. I bought this as a gift for my husband, and he absolutely loves wearing it. It is a good size for him, but it could also be a great piece for a woman too. The piece has a nice weight to it, without being uncomfortable or too large around the neck. I really like the fact that it is clasp free. It has a slip knot adjustment to lengthen or shorten the cord. A really nice piece to share your faith.
