I have purchased Arabella previously and have been basically happy with what I selected. This is a new item added to Macy's line, and I was very interested in the look and a great Macy's price. The cubic zirconias are always very beautiful, well done, and have a very diamond like sparkle. From what my vision tells me the gems are set in, not glued. The website picture when zoomed is fuzzy and does not tell you the whole story. The chain is super tiny, thin, and is attached to the center piece by one of it's thin loops. This is going to break very easily and very fast. It is also short, not a true 18 in. suspension. I measured 8 1/2 in.to the centerpiece on both sides. It fit short around my neck, and a bit uncomfortable. If it were a full 18 in. all the way to the center stones, that would have been great. Also had very small closure, which could be a problem for some with their hands and vision. I used a magnifying mirror. For these reasons, I will be returning it.
