This bedding is a great price and it really is beautiful. But if you wear a diamond ring or have any pets, then it will get snagged instantly! Even our nails snag it accidentally. I love it, but have a feeling it won't last more than a year or two before it's ruined.
These arrived in no time (2 days maybe). They are more green than the picture makes them look, but the color actually worked well in my room. The quality is not the best, as there were a few loose threads. The top of the comforter is made of tiny fibers, so if you have rough hands, jewelry, or anything it snags up. The tags on the comforter and pillows are obnoxious and impossible to remove without messing up the seems. Overall, the set looks really nice and is comfortable, so I can't really complain. I'd recommend it if you can deal with the quality issues.
PROS: This set is lovely, and very true to the color in the image (a pretty blue that falls somewhere between baby blue, ice blue, and pale slate blue, but it's not at all green). The fabric is very soft, and even though it has a bit of a sheen to the top it's not slippery and actually stays on the bed (which is nice!). It's also surprisingly warm - WAY warmer than the set it's replacing, but definitely too warm for the coming summer. CONS: While I really like the set, it has started showing wear faster than expected, especially on the brown accent pieces that run the length of the comforter. The blue doesn't really show it, but the brown pieces are pilling already after only a month of normal wear - i.e., we sleep under it, not ON it. Probably not ideal for pet owners. We have 2 cats (the dog doesn't get up on the bed) and the blue fabric is starting to pill a bit where one of them usually sleeps near my feet, their fur sticks to the fabric and needs a "sticky roller" to remove it (doesn't just brush off), and they have already snagged it in several places. Also, we purchased this for our cal king mattress which has a thick foam topper (also from this site), so our mattress is a BIT too tall for the bed set to look its best, but the bedding set's size is standard for cal king -- I guess next time I'll look for an oversized set instead. FINAL I don't regret the purchase at all - it was very reasonably priced and I had no way of knowing without trying it that it wouldn't hold up as hoped/expected. But this set would make a gorgeous and luxurious (yet affordable) ensemble for a guest room that doesn't get regular usage (or cats!). In fact... I will begin looking for another cal king set and plan to put this set in to use in the guest room before we cause too much more wear.
I was thrilled when I opened the box and even more thrilled when I got it all on the bed! The quality is not quite what I expected but you get what you pay for. It really is beautiful and definitely worth it for the price. Now it does snags quite easily and wouldn't be a good choice if kids or pets are likely to rough-house on the bed.
A very nice comforter set - especially for the price. A subtle pattern on the comforter ties in nicely with the shams and pillows. Very soft and fluffy - no "plasticy" feeling like you sometimes get in cheaper blankets. Very warm as well.
