Rated 3 out of 5Â by GeoInCalifornia Not the Collector's Piece I Expected!
I knew the necklace was a return the second I opened the box and found it in a plastic bag stuffed inside one of those cheap white bags with a paper and wire closure. Not the norm for a piece like this. My first thought was, âI hope no stones are missing.â Unfortunately there were at least two missing, maybe more. I didn't look further when I discovered the second was a center stone.
Even at first cut, this was expensive. I am talking, âVERY NICE DRESS AT FULL PRICE EXPENSIVE.â
This could have been a beautiful, classic piece, that could be worn with anything, for any occasion.
If stones fell out for any reason, then this isn't the collectorâs piece I hoped it was. Back it goes with defect selected as the reason for return.
I hope itâs pulled from the shelf and returned to the designer.
NOTE: Looks exactly like the online photo. A bit heavy as expected for brass. The length lands just below the bust.
Not recommended, even if the necklace arrives with all stones in place. I would expect stones to fall out of every necklace if two were missing from this one.
