The set is undoubtedly beautiful, but the quality was a less than I was expecting. The chain is downright cheap, and the metal is of mediocre quality. From a distance it's fine, but I wouldn't want anyone examining it up close. My first step is going to be to replace the chain with something more delicate, and eventually I might use the pearls and have the piece copied with higher quality materials. The design is fantastic, the execution is worth the $30 I paid for it. *Definitely* not worth the original listed price of $130.
