I recently purchased this cross as bridesmaids gifts for my upcoming wedding in November (Citrine is the birthstone for that month). I wanted to give something beautiful and memorable. The packaging it arrived in was very generic, but the cross itself is absolutely gorgeous! The color is fantastic, it really sparkles, and is much more attractive than the picture shows. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and I know my bridesmaids will love it too! Plus, it will help them remember the month they stood at my side on the most important day of my life!
