I have had this necklace since I was confirmed into my church five years ago. It held up very well, but the clasp broke recently. I felt it slip off during culinary class and it fell into one of the water grates in the floor :(. For what it’s worth, I definitely got five years of use out of it.
My daughter received this as a gift from me for her baptism. She's had it less than three months. The chain broke and now the necklace is gone because she didn't feel it. She's been in tears all day because she says I work too hard for her to lose her nice things. Normally, I would agree. However, I blame craftsmanship this time. (Something I've never said about another JA piece.)
I’ve replaced this necklace twice since the first original purchase. The chain has broken without any pull or force. Love the simplicity, but because of the lack of quality I will not purchase this item again.
Love this cross necklace.
I love this cross necklace, I have worn it daily for 3 years. It's beautiful. Several reviews stated the chain broke, I haven't had this happen. I sleep and swim with it on. My only complaint is the style of chain seems to have a darker color than the cross.
Poor quality chain
I rarely wear this necklace and it has broke right in the middle of the chain while walking into church. Thankfully the cross fell and I noticed the sound, but for the price I paid I expect much higher quality-especially since there was no pull on the chain.

This necklace is almost great. The size of the cross is perfect, and the length of the chain is perfect. HOWEVER the quality of the chain is terrible! It has now broken twice, both times it broke I didn't even tug hard on the necklace, all I did was move it on my neck and it broke. both. times. Not happy.

Perfect cross necklace
I bought this cross for my daughters in the silver. They love the simplistic design and the petite size. They wear it quite often. It was a great gift for a special occasion : eighteen year old Birthday, as they make their way out into the world and can be reminded of their faith.
Petite and Simple
My husband bought me this cross after he saw me admiring it. I have another James Avery cross that I don't wear as often due to it being a little more decorative. I am wearing the petite latin cross all of the time even when I sleep. I can also wear it with other jewelry. It is so beautiful and simple! I absolutely love it.
Too petite. Not as pictured. Sent it back
This cross could be good for a 6 year old or ethereally thin 20 year old.
But not for me (5' average build 60 yr old). It is very tiny and very shiny (like chrome instead of silver) and not sent on the chain pictured. I was very disappointed and returned it immediately. I have purchased from James Avery many times in the past for my self as well as gifts and have always been thrilled with what I got. My prior good experiences made me especially sad at this one.
Simple and lovely
I bought this delicate little necklace for myself recently and have worn it nearly everyday. It is unadorned and simple; small but noticeable. I wear it as my "everyday" cross. I have several of JA's crosses and each is very special and treasured. You can count on JA for quality.
I received this necklace for Christmas and I just Love it!
