Pros: 1. The jewelry set is very beautiful. The pearls give a nice, graceful look. Once you wear it, it totally changes your look. 😉 2. The chains and hooks look sturdy and durable. Long chain can be adjust the length of the necklace, but it's best when it's worn like a choker, in the shortest length. But this leaves a long length of chain hanging, which was a bit of a problem for me.
I am not sure about the gold plating information though 😛
Cons: 1. The earrings are not symmetrical,they both face the same direction. It's not a huge issue, but I would have liked it better if the earrings were symmetrically opposite facing. 2. It's a tiny bit expensive I feel.
