I thought this cross was even nicer than pictured on the web, and I was extremely pleased with the purchase. I intended it as a gift, and the recipient was very pleased--until she tried to put it on. I don't remember whether the chain length was included in the product description, but I assumed it was 18 inches. It was so short that the recipient could not put it on, so I guess it was a 16-inch chain. That's entirely too short for this cross. Even 18 inches would be short because this is a large, rather hefty piece of jewelry. Fortunately, I have a 24-inch silver chain that I can give the recipient, but I wish I had checked the chain before I presented it. Overall, I am very pleased with this item, but just a warning about the very short chain.
I was looking for a sterling silver rosary necklace. I have visited a few sites and noticed not only the high prices but, with a few, poor customer reviews denouncing the silver quality. I have been an overstock customer for years. So, on a hunch, I did a search and was happy at the results. Regarding this particular piece there were no reviews to follow so I followed my instinct. I must tell you....when it arrived I was beyond impressed. It comes in a a hard pressed cardboard box (high end jewlery store quality) 3"x3". The company name , Platifina, is silver embossed and above that is a die cast cut "P" as the company's logo also silver. You must lift the box's open end edge up and right outward (like a book) and the exposed inner flap up and left outward. You will see a swatch sized piece of jewlery polishing cloth with the company's name and logo printed on it in black and behind it the sterling silver rosary and cross mounted on a velveteen cushion. Upon first look, you see quality for the necklace is bright and polished . There are 55 silver caged cut beads on the strand. There are no clasps as it is long enough to simply drop around your neck. This piece is classic and classy without being "bling bling" gawdy. I did google the company Platifina. The company meets market demand for exquisite and affordable white metal jewlery. This item as most of their products has a unique combination of 3.5% platinum, 92.5% sterling silver and 4% of a patented metal alloy. This allows Platina products to possess the rich white luster and affordability of Sterling Silver while enjoying the durability of Platinum. The blended benefit is that it will stay white for the polishing cloth is to help remove any residue buildup due to wearing. It is guranteed to be tarnish resistant so no chemical cleaning is required. I am so happy with this purchase and honored to be the first customer to offer a full review. If this item is still available and you are just thinking about making this purchase-Don't think. Do. Excellent quality at an excellent price.
I bought the rosary necklace for my granddaughter's first holy communion. It was definitely a hit with her as well as others. It was beautiful, and although a little long for her 8 year old neck, she wouldn't let us have it shortened. She loved it.
After reading a few reviews on this site I was a bit weary about purchasing this product, but I am glad I went through with it. I absolutely LOVE this rosary! With the little dot cutout designs on this rosary, this neckalace is it given a shine when wearing it. I have received so many compliments on this rosary since the first day I put it on. I will say if you are looking for something with a little bit a weight to it, this may not be for you. While the rosary does not feel very light it is also not very heavy. I also would not recommend this rosary to a man because in my opinion it has more of a feminine touch with the beads being more on a smaller scale. The chain does not appear masculine at all, but would make a great gift for a wife.
