Don't believe any of that for a second (well, it's a 'ring' I suppose!) but the reviews say it is very pretty and it cost me £3 incl postage. For that I figured it was worth a look. We shall see..........
The 'Wish' and 'Home' websites have absolutely no concept of trades descriptions etc! If I was being kind I could perhaps put it down to translation errors but as long as you take all product information with a very large pinch of salt you won't be disappointed!
Taking all that into consideration I have had some really good stuff from them (jewellery, craft stuff, household items, clothes.....) at ridiculous prices. If the 'genuine 925 sterling silver' rubs off things in a few months what the heck, they cost me next to nothing. I can always use them for my crafting when they are no longer good to wear!
I am just starting a canvas using a seahorse brooch passed on to me by mother before she died, hadn’t thought of recycling old jewellery before so we are on the same wave length EarlyBird. Anna from the Craft Box has a new ‘Alice Collection’ - I have had to buy the cats and stars and the rabbit with the clock.
I saw the Alice stuff, FP - I was tempted but resisted!!
That ring arrived a couple of days ago. The person they photographed it on must be tiny as it is not as big as it appears in the photos! The colour is more orangey/yellow too but it is actually really pretty. I keep meaning to take a pic to post. Bear with me......
This is the 'orange diamond'. Not quite as brownish as the website pic but I really like it. I wear a lot of autumnal colours (all year!) so it will go well. It looks like the 'stone' is full of bubbles but I think that is the surrounding stuff reflecting. It is actually very clear and slightly brighter than the pic.
I also bought a '7.36ct Natural Emerald' (yeah, right! ). The band is stamped '925' but that don't make it true! Regardless, it cost me £2 and I like it.
I don't care that these rings are almost certainly base metal and glass, I really like them. They are not everyday rings so will not get too much wear and tear and should do a few outings. The two together ended up costing me less than a fiver so what the heck!
Both are lovely. As you say, it isn't what the stone is or what it's worth it's that you love it.
Last week I took a CZ pendant in to my jeweller to ask if he could make it into a ring. I did have a full set but the barstewards stole the ring. It's similar to your ring but the central stone is like a deep raspberry and it's surrounded by clear stones. His daughter works with him and she must see loads of stunning pieces but she came over and said "oh wow that's so pretty".
To me the first one doesn't look much like the original photo so it's a good job you like it, I love rectangular stones so I prefer the 'emerald' it reminds me of my blue topaz ring, even if they are glass and base metal you've done well for under £5
People who are wrong are just as sure they're right as people who are right, the only difference is they're wrong
