    No way to tell without something to give it perspective.  The rock doesn’t do it b/c we don’t know how big the rock is.  How big are the stones?  Personally I don’t care for anything big in my ears, but on a necklace, no problem.

    The earrings look a little large, since theyre the same size as the necklace, but it looks really pretty overall.

    To be honest, it doesn’t look expensive. 🙁

    meowbee :  honestly, anything Swarovski is going to be costume jewelry. High end costume jewelry, but costume jewelry nonetheless. But there is nothing wrong with costume jewelry! Remember that Coco Chanel said,” Costume jewelry is not made to give women an aura of wealth, but to make them beautiful”.  She was a big fan of inexpensive jewelry and made the concept popular. So, if you like the piece, go with it 🙂  it doesn’t look like something from Forever 21, though I’ve definitely gotten some jewelry items there that looked high end and I got a million compliments on from stylish ladies.

    I think it looks well made, which is what matters (to me at least). It doesn’t scream MONEY to me, but really why would you need it to? 

    Fwiw, I think the set is lovely and wouldn’t look out of place at a wedding.

    I would never wear it all at once. Way too matchy matchy. That said, I like the pieces on their own. The earrings in particular. And I would wear them.

    Yes it does – because it is costume jewellery!  So what?

    Does it look beautiful- OMG yes!!  I love Swarovski – had some beautiful wedding earrings from them!

    It looks like good quality costume jewellery – definitely not cheap!

    I feel like any jewellery bought to be worn for just one occasion SHOULD be costume anyhow……but I don’t see anything “cheap” looking about that set. However of you are concerned about that maybe look at jewellery with synthetic stones instead of Swarovski crystal, those crystals are more sparkely than most stones and that’s what gives them away for what they are ND what can cause a “costumey” look
