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.
This necklace is gorgeous. I bought it for myself about a week and a half ago and it came in the mail today. It says it's a sapphire stone, but it's so dark it almost looks black. It's still beautiful thought. The diamonds on the arms, legs, and head of the cross aren't very sparkly, but they reflect light to look like they are. Overall I'm very pleased, only I just wish the chain was two inches longer.
