I have the large version of it on a long, black silk cord. I wear it often.

If it was my money personally I'd grab an Alexis Bittar design before either of those. Tiffany low-end jewelry is lame and not respected that much these days in the fashion world, it's basically a played out stereotype. You could get her a ring or modest Bittar necklace and it would be like 1000 times more stylish IMO. This is just the first example that came to mind. I own several pieces and it's on sale on their site right now. If I could afford to buy more, I would. The quality is excellent.

I could seriously go for the neo-Bohemian dragonfly necklace.

That said, I suspect the OP is going for something classic instead of something that's currently fashionable.

Out of the 2 I like the circles but it really seems expensive for what it is. I understand it is Tiffany's but still. I looked at some other necklaces for the price. I like the Paloma's Venezia Goldoni medallion pendant and also the key pendant.

I love the second one better. The one with interlocking circles.

My niece has the interlocking circles necklace, though she's twelve, and while the chain is a bit longer on her than most adult women, the pendant is not terribly oversized. If your sister wears jewelry that has a larger pendant, the interlocking circles may not be large enough.

I know some of the charms are larger, such as the keys mentioned up thread, and I think there's a Paloma Picasso flower that is to the larger size, in sterling, so it's closer to the same price point as the horseshoe. I seem to recall seeing one that was an open flower charm on a silver necklace when I was looking for a Christmas gift.
