I purchased this jewelry armoire as a gift or my wife. We have been looking for quite some time. We were thrilled with the quality of this piece. The color was spot on and the style was a perfect match with our current furniture style. The product came double boxed and assembly took less than ten minutes. My wife is so pleased with this purchase.

I bought this as I have a cleaning service and want my jewelry protected, which in the past has been quite vulnerable and an atractive target. The sides and top do not lock so defeats the purpose so can only be used for less expensive items. I had damage on the first one and it was replaced and the second one had damage too. The damage was clearly from the manufacturer - one place had even been filled where the original wood was missing, filled and stained poorly. At a distance it looks very nice but if it were on the other side of my bedroom with direct light it would be obvious that there were defects.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? True to color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was poor - obviously did not go thru a QC check before being sent to Overstock - clearly manufacturing issues
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The sides and top DO NOT LOCK which needs to be clearly known as the items put in those two locations are still vulnerable if you have concerns
Product arrived in a timely manner, double boxed, well protected, appears to be solid wood (no pressboard laminated) through out, drawers are not on slides so do not extend fully. Very nice piece for the money.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was as expected

The workmanship on this product was shoddy. The finish had cracks around the molding on the top and several scratches on the sides and legs. One of the side doors was out of alignment and did not close properly. One of the drawers was difficult to open. The product description listed it as a locking armoire, but only the front drawers locked, not the top or the side doors (this wasn't specified). I immediately called customer service to describe the problem. The customer service agent was extremely helpful. She offered to replace it, but I was concerned that the next one sent would also be poorly constructed. She checked reviews and noted that most of the reviews on this product were poor, which of course made it easy for me to make the decision to return it for an exchange. I received the instructions for the return immediately via e-mail, and the product was picked up within 3 days for the return. I received an e-mail stating that the product was received and that my account would be credited for the full amount.

I had my reservations about the quality of the product based on the previous reviews. Since I liked the color and style, I decided to take my chances and buy the Marqs 8 drawer Locking Jewelry Armoire. The armoire arrived in perfect condition. It was packaged well, in two boxes (one box in another) with the product itself wrapped sufficiently in packing wrap and styrofoam on the corners. The only assembly required was the screwing in of four or five screws to secure the lid with the mirror. It was very simple to do. There were no noticeable imperfections on the product. No knicks, dents,or rough edges. The stain is consistent and looks nice. The armoire is sturdy; it is steady on its base. One downfall of the armoire is that the drawers are not on glides but at this price point it is not really expected. The drawers have a stop that prevents them from being pulled out all the way. This is both good and bad. While the drawers do not pull out entirely, preventing the drawers from falling out and spilling jewelry everywhere, it does slightly prevent easy access to the very back of the drawers.You can still put things in the back of the drawers and get them back out but not as easily as those in the front or middle. Overall, this is a good product and I would recommend it to others.
I purchased this armoire because of the locking mechanism. The only oversight in this feature is that the locking mechanism DOES NOT LOCK THE RING COMPARTMENT. This was a big disappointment. The other feature that missed the mark was that the velvet lining is NOT TARNISHPROOF.
