I am sad to say I ordered three of these necklaces for my three daughters for a Valentine's Day gift. The crosses are beautiful but do not all (one fits) fit into the fragile silver frame. They are either too big and do not fit, or they are too small and jiggle around in the casing. We are all disappointed.
This is a wonderful piece. The glass pieces all are very intricate, the light shines through them, and it's just beautiful. I am giving them a Christmas Gift and I am sure that she will love them. I'm debating on getting one for myself as well. Well worth the price!
The first necklace arrived with one glass cross broken. The wonderful people at Overstock customer service (online chat) got me a replacement set of crosses. The only problem is the glass doesn't fit into the little silver cage (that's how you change out the crosses to different colors). Otherwise it's a beautiful idea, very delicate, just a problem because the extra crosses won't fit.

I bought four of these for my daughter and nieces. They are very pretty and perfect for girls and young ladies. Opening the silver 'frame/cage' to change the glass cross was tricky and we only discovered the 'secret' by dropping on the floor. To open: remove the chain and push back on the middle of the chain's loop...the back of the silver/frame cage will fold down.

The crosses and silver frame are quite stunning. A perfect confirmation gift. I think I may by more to keep on hand for gifts. The chain isn't very attractive but it looks like it's strong and can easily be swapped out with a nicer one.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? even nicer in person
silver chain and setting are really nice, the different colors in the glass make it great for matching with almost all my clothes. The back of the cross closure is very sturdy, so you don't have to worry about breakage. I love this necklace! And highly recommend it!

There were no instructions included in the product to show how to remove the glass insert crosses and I couldn't figure it out. Since this was bought for a child, I knew she would not be able to change the glass pieces. The chain was also of poor quality.
I bought this last year for one of my nieces and she loved it. she changes the colors to match her outfits and enjoys watching it. I just bought 4 more - for my other two nieces receiving first communion this year and for my daughters so that I will have them for them when they receive first communion!
After my 7 year old had an emotional meltdown because she didnt have a cross necklace from her baptism like her little sister I was determined to find her a special one just her style. This one is artsy and fun yet its not overly crazy with color. I am always skeptical when finding things online...photography has come a long way and many times i have been extremely unhappy with online purchases. This necklace is absolutely awesome. I was so pleased when it arrived that I could hardly contain myself, I wanted to give it to her that moment. She doesnt have it yet, but I can say with certainty she will jump up and down and most likely have a tear in her eye when she tells me how beautiful it is.... I like the fact that the chain acts as a security feature to keep the silver frame from opening and releasing the glass
Given the low price that I paid for this item, I was worried that it might look cheap. I was pleasantly surprised.It looks very nice. Casual or a bit dressier. Adds a little flash of color. The glass crosses are easily changed out, and it's a neat concept to have five different looks with one necklace.I purchased this item as a gift for my wife. She later mentioned ordering two more as gifts for our mothers, so that's a good indication.
