bad luck with Audrey Hepburn’s sodalite
So I got my ring and my necklace… Bummer. The ring would have been AMAZING. I’s got these concentric pattern that makes it look like a bedeviled evil eye emerging from the depth, so very cool. BUT it’s got a defect on top, very very visible, have no clue what it is but looks almost like as if it was covered with some varnish which cracked and a bit peeled – the exact way it looks is like thereis a bit of transparent tape peeling off. It is very visible. I will try to wear it around tomorrow for a little bit and convince myself that it is not there. If I succeed I keep it. I am afraid though that that silly defect will drive me mad. I wouldn’t be quite as upset if the ring wasn’t one-in-who-knows-how-many pattern! Why did the defect need to land of top of THAT! They sure did not show anything amazing like that pattern on TV when presenting these! The necklace sure does not have cabochons like that. Did YOU ever see a natural sodalite with a large evil eye in it?!
Necklace would be all right, but it too is defective: one of the little chains already broke and hangs loosely. So they are not linked up well…
I also got what I thought would be fantastic earrings – the enameled hoops and those somehow look super silly on me. Or rather, I look super silly in them.
I watched most of the show and thought for mistery metal the pieces were very high priced
Massha, If this was up to me- i would return it. If you have "perfectionist" personality you probably will not wear it. And/if you do wear it it will bug you inside. Others may never notice the defect but you will know its there.
Sorry your items didn’t arrive as expected. As I mentioned on a different blog here at HSN ; we pay shipping and handling for…..? That was because of how I received a recent purchase of earrings.
I was looking at these and thought they were gorgeous. I appreciate you posting about your experience. Thank you.
Sorry that happened. Every once and while it happens. I’m sure HSN will take care of whatever
you decide to do. Stay warm:smileyhappy:
massha if it is defective call c.s see if they have one in your size and exchange i have done this and they are good about it i didnt see they t he evil eye i loved jay kings muility coloured braclete
massha, sure wouldn’t want to return your ring with that spectacular cab…can you remove the varnishy coat and recoat it? Can jeweler do it? There must be something you can do.
Massha…I am so sorry to hear all this. The pattern in that sodalite ring sounds amazing but maybe it was sealed with something? Chances of getting another piece with that pattern are slim and none. But with that defect…that would make me send it back immediately.
We were talking about concern for the necklace and the "mystery" metal. What a shame.
But thanks for the head’s up on it. I think I’m glad I didn’t order them now.
