I purchased this necklace as a gift for my daughter-in-law and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Even after reading the previous reviews, I was still blown away by the beauty of this piece. It is gorgeous!! The stones are a beautiful, clear green and the silver work is excellent. If you are thinking of getting this, do it; you will be glad you did. Very high quality.
If you look at O.'s product description of this cross on your computer screen, the size is identical. ( I laid this cross on the screen and they're exactly the same size.) Sometimes you read a jewelry review how the buyer thought it would be larger (or smaller). In the case of this cross----what you see is what you get. While the chain is very sturdy and well made, my own personal preference would be that it'd be about 5-10" longer and thicker in width to better compliment this gorgeous cross. I plan on switching the chain out with a chain I already own and wear this one on a smaller pendant of mine. In the past, I've purchased two bracelets and four pairs of earrings from O.'s NOVICA Worldstock collection and have been very pleased with everything. If you love jewelry, you can't go wrong adding NOVICA items to your collection----or giving them as memorable gifts. An added bonus is that your purchase benefits others from around the world----a Win-Win situation for everyone. Thanks Overstock!
I've purchased quite a few pieces of jewelry from "O" and this cross is one of my favorite. I'm wearing it today as a matter of fact. The silver work is detailed and intricate. The workmanship shows up nicely due to the antiquing of the silver. The piece is a nice size, not too large to over power, but large enough to be noticed. I receive compliments every time I wear it. The peridot stones are clear and a beautiful shade of green....not light colored like you sometimes see with lower quality pieces. I would definitely buy this piece again.
This is not just a necklace, this is art!!! it was absolutely beautiful and the price was awesome. I wanted something special for my cousins 4oth birthday,and when I saw this cross it had her name written all over it .When it got here and I saw the real thing it was breath taking to think that it is "handmade" the detail is awesome..I can't say enough about this cross. There are two more pieces , a bracelet and earrings (not a cross) but the same "theme" that are gorgeous.
Nice size, beautiful color, even came with a very decent quality chain. My only complaint would be the ring at the top holding the cross to the chain. It seems to move too easily and I worry it might break which would render the cross completely unwearable.
Just beautiful artisan cross pendant! the peridot gemstones are clear and sparkly The cross is a perfect size-not overwhelmingly large, but it shows up beautifully on the neckline. I changed out the chain for another, Balinese one to give the pendant more presence. It looks FANTASTIC! I couldn't be more delighted. Best,. most amazing cross I have (and I collect crosses!)
This is a gift, therefore I did not take the wrapping off of it. It looks very nice but since it does not belong to me I have not even tried it on.

We liked the cross itself, while its not the highest of quality its oveall asthetically great and has a great design. The chain however was horrible, very poor quality, it broke the first time out. Bought a cheap stainless steel chain at the mall that was twice the quality...

The silver work on this cross is well-done. I considered returning it, though, because it was the most expensive of three I purchased. I didn't like the chain so much & thought the stones were too large. Then my adult daughter tried it on and it is beautiful! I couldn't take my eyes off it. Sometimes it pays to try an item on.
