I fell in love w/these b/c of the picture. I own many Miadora pieces from Overstock, & they have always been an exact match to the details & pics. Not these earrings. The color in this picture is a rich, royal purple. The delivered earrings lived up to the quality & workmanship that I've come to expect from Miadora, & the size & shape were exactly as described. However, the color of the earrings was an extraordinary disappointment. Instead of the lush, vibrant purple, the gems in my earrings were so very pale as to barely be lavender. They were so pale that they were nearly translucent. I was very disappointed. That said, when worn w/a good purple, the earrings have a bit more color, & every other detail is exquisite, so I decided to keep them. I'd planned on buying the matching necklace, but am reconsidering. I don't know what shade the pendant will be, & it's expensive enough that I would like some guarantee that it's the color shown in its picture. Other reviews here lead me to believe that this might be a natural gem stone variation rather than every single pair being as pale as mine, but I'll take my time deciding on the pendant.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Poorly. The size and shape were spot on, but the color of the amethyst is nearly the exact opposite of the real earrings.
- How accurate was the sizing? Exact,
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality, workmanship and the delicate craftsmanship were all exquisite.
This is an example of buyer beware. The quality of the product was no where close to the assertions made by the seller. There was almost no coloring in the gemstones. They were almost clear despite the deep color of the gemstones depicted in the ad.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Not at all. The gemstones received were almost clear with very little coloring.
- How accurate was the sizing? good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I am informed that quality is related to the deepness in color of the stones. The stones received were almost clear.
I love these earrings! They are not too small or too big, so appropriate enough for me to wear everyday, which I do. They're also comfortable for all day wear (not heavy, pinching, rash-enducing as with sensitive skin..)
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Image shows product well
- How accurate was the sizing? Size was correct
