Reviews for Amazon Essentials Plated Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Round Cut Solitaire Pendant Necklace, 18"
People say Amazon Essentials is really similar to Amazon Collection.
Glad I Found the Amazon Collection!
Really rather pretty, cannot wait to give it as a gift! It has great shine and is similar to the boxed jewelry on the open displays in a department store, but I feel the Amazon box is much prettier. I feel good giving it as a gift.
10K Swarvorski 2ct vs Platinum Plated Sterling 2ct Cubic Zirconia
I originally purchased the 10k Swarvorski Crystal 2ct solitaire pendant also by Amazon Curated Collection to replace my real 2ct pendant when I go on water vacation/pools which is not good for any real jewels. I loved that it was Swarvorski crystal BUT the setting was extremely dainty and fragile making it look very cheap. Probably due to the fact that it was a 10k gold setting so they were skimpy in the quality of the item. Also, that item would never lay flat on your neck. The solitaire was drooping downwards. Very bad design. Now onto this actual item which is also 2ct BUT Cubic Zirconia which is no where as nice as Swarvorski Crystal. The upside of this item is that the basket setting of the solitaire looks exactly like my real diamond pendant. Heftier and doesn't droop forward like the other one. And another thing is that if you want to change the chain for this platinum plates sterling, you will need cut the chain off because it does NOT allow you to simply slide the solitaire off. In the end, this will work for the days I'm in the pool or the beach but I doubt the cubic zirconia will hold up without clouding/dulling if worn everyday. Now if Amazon would put a Swarvorski in this setting, it would be IDEAL!
