Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
These earrings are truly beautiful, I actually wonder if they are real moonstone or synthetic because they are that nice. The silver wire workmanship is done uniquely and very nice. The actual silver wire that goes through your ear however, is thin and arrived a little bent. Obviously I can unbend them but worry a bit on their longevity. They also could be replaced if need be. Overall, I am really happy even if they turned out to not be natural moonstone. The story on the women in China is sad at it's very least, tragic really. Except for the grace of God, there go I.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good
I am not sure if I didn't read the product information but these earrings look great online and beautiful in person, however the stones are plastic not real! They were cheap so I kept them. The wire catches on my clothes sometimes because it wasn't tucked in.
Earrings were much larger than I thought they would be but not too large that they'd pull on the earlobe. Silver hook was of sufficient weight, not too thin, wires attached well to the stone and also the moonstones are genuine moonstone. I've had moonstone jewelry in the past and these briolette cut stones have the heft and weight of the real thing and also, when held up to the light, has the rainbow effect. I don't know why anyone would think these were not real moonstones. Must not know their gemology. Kudos also to Overstock for having these organizations to help women in dangerous situations, to raise self esteem, educate and also promote fair trade goods around the world with Worldstock goods. Bravo!
Returned the earrings, the wire rapping is NOT sterling but poorly plated brass. I also questioned the genuineness of these stones, too clear and identical, texture etc. O.CO seems to be lacking on good descriptions and possibly authenticating sellers claim of authenticity. They did accept my return after the silver plating wore off in just 2 weeks. They were good about that!rndiadem on Mar 17, 2013
Honestly, I doubt it. I left positive feedback initially and wish I could ammend my review as they are not as described.rndiadem on Mar 17, 2013
