I am loving Kristian Alfonsos jewelry line and have purchased several of her pieces. However two of the long necklaces I bought of hers totally fell apart, one I was able to repair and the other one I had to send back. The designs are beautiful so I'm hoping the quality of some of them will get better because they are a little pricey for costume jewelry and should be made to hold up to regular wear.
I have purchased several pieces and found the quality to be great except on one necklace, the heart pendant. I bought the last 4 necklaces that HSN had in stock on sale as the reviews said they broke. Sure enough they all broke! It was because one or two jump rings were not soldered and pulled open with the slightest tension. I called HSN and they credited me $10 so i could get it repaired which I did because I really like that necklace!! I own two other necklaces of hers and have not had any problems. I have the sparkling kisses and the long necklace of cz's by the yard. I forget her name for it. Knock wood, no other problems yet.
Unfortunately, I haven't had much success with her line. I was so excited when her line premiered on HSN. I had admired her wearing the fleur de lis earrings on Days and couldn't wait to get them. I wore them for about an hour and two stones fell out. Also, ordered a necklace and again, the stones fell out. I gave up. Hoping the quality would improve, however, it seems there are still issues. As mentioned, for costume jewelry, they are not cheap.
I adore this line (I love Kristian and have been a fan for years). So far I have purchased the fleur di lis pendant which I wear virtually everyday, the 'faith' 'hope' and 'miracles' wooden bead bracelets, the classic estate ring, the sterling silver canary ring, the cz and simulated emerald 2-tone ring, and I also own the red fleur tag from Kristian's own website. I've had great luck with all the pieces so far, no broken chains or lost stones. I get lots of compliments on the pieces.
