I purchased this as a gift for a friend and it is beautiful. The size is large, if you use the ruler that is supplied on the screen or blow up the picture it is the same size as described. The blue stone and citrine stones are beautiful. Not sure what the person means by you can't see the blue stones. For the price of the item, it is a bargain and it is very pretty. Unless your going to take a jewlers loop to look at the quality of the stones no one knows and if you need to take a loop then don't shop on Overstock.com just go to a jewler to get ripped off! Overstock.com is an incredible place to shop for bargains and the quality of the merchandise is fantastic. I would highly recommend this cross to anyone who want to give a elegant and impressive gift!
Bought this for my daughter's BD. She collects crosses and she was delighted with this one. The price was outstanding for the quality. If you had it in rubies, I'd buy one for myself.

The cross is ok, nothing great, but the chain....so cheap and thin, also came knotted, I wouldnt wear the chain anyways, but if included should be better than this one. I collect crosses, so I am keeping it, not a lot of sparkle, but for the size and price ok.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Cross ok....but chain is very thin and it came knotted
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Cross is ok, not really impressive...chain not worth at all
I Really like the necklace, it is a very nice piece, but I believe the inspector needs glasses because the stones are not the same and if it would have been checked, it should have not been sent. I Thought about sending it back, but didn't want the hassle, so I kept it as is. Was a bit of a disappointment because it is a very nice cross.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Not exactly as shown
- How accurate was the sizing? Size was as shown, nice size.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality could have been better, the stones are not the same on all sides of the cross.
I have a tendency to like gothic and/or unusual jewelry, but the older I have gotten, now 31, I have found myself wanting the edge with more class and quality. This is one of those pieces that has both class and quality, but also hits the creative gothic/unusual criteria as well in my opinion. The only issue is that for the weight of the pendant, you will have to find a thinner box chain and test it in the store to see if it will go through the bail before purchasing or you will get frustrated. The patina behind the citrines and the sapphires add to the brightness of the stones. When you hold the pendant up to the light and look through the back of the piece you can definitely tell that the sapphires are a dark blue and the citrines are a golden yellow. The weight is very nice and not flimsy or bendable like a lot of pieces I've found recently. It has a very comfortable, but not overly heavy feel. This particular pendant is awesome if you like to layer your necklaces for a more dramatic look. I think, that if the other pieces are like mine, you will not be disappointed. I wear this for every day and dress up.

Though the picture is loveley, in actuality the stones are so tiny you cant see them and the are nowhere near the colours pictured. It was Christmas gift for my mother-in-law who I love BTW and it was not a "wow" more of a uh, ok moment. I have asked her to retun it so I can find something nicer for her.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. pretty good, but a little lighter than I expected
I wasn't in love with this cross, but it was such a value price that I didn't want to deal with the hassle of sending it back. I collect cross pendants and this just didn't have any wow factor. It was much larger than expected and the "sapphire" stones were almost black and had no sparkle. The overall effect was that it looked cheap. I would not recommend it.
I sold fine jewelry for four years, including Levian and now have returned to health care. Both professions make me a detail person. I received this piece a couple of days ago and am very disappointed. I looked for the blue of a sapphire in every light and found not a single stone with even a dark blue touch. With only the tips of this piece having color the effect and workmanship of the pendant is very flat. I will return the piece soon.
