I was expecting it to have more weight. It looks nice from a distance, but up close looks a bit cheap. I didn't feel comfortable giving it to the person I wanted it for. I decided to keep it instead for myself.
I wanted to get my son a cross for his 1st Communion, something he could display for years to come. This worked out GREAT! He loved it and it was very unique. He will be able to display this even after he's a grown man and living on his own. It does have a fake resin look to it up close but I still think its COOL! I would buy it again.
I received this as a confirmation gift and I love it! It is unique and stays securely on the wall with a thumbtack. My grandma (being the lady she is), dropped it when it came through the mail, panicked, she called the company and they replaced it for free.
