I bought this for myself. It is a very lovely necklace and earring set. It came in a little plastic bag and the very thin light weight chain was in so many knots it took me almost 2 hours to unknot the it. It looks really nice and I love pearls. The diamond is very very small, but I bought it for the pearl so the size of the diamond is unimportant to me. The Pearls are beautiful.
I bought this earring for myself. I love pearls! For the amount that I paid this pearls are worth it. I actually didn't expect it to come with a chain because it is already cheap as it is. I am using it with a thicker gold chain and had one of my daughter wear the thinner chain. My sister is getting married in December and I had told her to consider this set to give to her bridesmaids.
While the pendant and earrings are pretty and of fairly good quality, the pearls and diamonds are tiny--you can barely see the diamonds. This set would look foolish on an adult. Luckily, I bought these for a niece's Christening--perfect. I usually buy a strand of Akoyas with matching earrings for that type gift, but the Akoyas are getting very pricey for a decent strand, and these are a reasonably-priced, suitable substitute.
I bought a set of these for each of my bridesmaids as part of their gift. They wanted something simple and elegant to wear on my wedding day. This was prefect. The pearls are of great quality. I think they will look perfect for the big day. As others had mentioned, the gold chain is thin. I also agree that it looks like the pearl is floating around your neck, which is a pretty look, however, it might be a good idea to buy a stronger chain. Overall, I am very pleased!
First, I will say that I'm no expert in pearls and that I AM keeping this set. I think the set is worth what I paid and I want to avoid the charges for returning. However, I am disappointed with the quality of the jewelry. The earrings and necklace look a bit off when they're on because the metal is easily bent. (As another review said, the pendant hangs a bit crookedly.) I bent one earring so the position of the (tiny) diamond would match the other. Clearly, the gold is not of high quality, and the pieces look like they were cheaply soldered together. The pearls are pretty, but I think some freshwater pearls I got from Overstock are nicer (and cheaper). I also am afraid an earring could easily fall off, and the chain is VERY thin. (But I like the way this looks, because the pearl looks like it's floating since the chain is almost invisible.) All in all, I don't think this is a BAD value, just not a great one. I am going to think of this set as nice costume jewelry, not something to get really attached to (because something could easily get lost). I wouldn't use this for everyday either, for that reason. I ignored the other negative reviews... and now I wish I hadn't!
I am very impressed with this set which is a gift for a freshman in college who likes small, classic jewelry. I felt it would be just right for dressy events. The pearls are evenly matched and lustrous. The diamond accents add a sparkle. I found a necklace that looked identical at the Nordstroms' website for $300. The only downfall is no presentation box, but the red bag is nice. Overstock.com is amazing.
The necklace and earrings are very nice, and presented well. The pendant from which the pearl hangs is slightly crooked, which, if you are looking closely, makes the pearl hang crooked on the chain. Undoubtedly, no one would notice this ordinarily, but, on inspection I saw it. Otherwise, the quality looks beautiful, and very classy. This would be a great gift.
