This beautiful 4 piece is something I purchased for future use. It was to go with my wedding attire, I hoped it would be as nice as the picture. It arrived in a speedy manner and I must say it is very beautiful. My fiance' has now changed the colors from black and gold to white and royal blue, but I might still wear it. I do know it will make more appearances than just a wedding next year. The black color is solid with a little sparkle and everything is nice in size and length. It is not to flashy and cheap looking which is great for costume jewelry. The fact that you get an entire set for the price that you do is amazing and I am more than happy. I would purchase one for mother but she has no piercings. I recommend this for any occassion if you are into costume jewelry.
