  1. My wife and I couldn’t afford rings when we first got married. Even engaged. However, when I saw these rings I could not pass up the opportunity to get them. Only problem was they sent a size to big for us both. We still love them anyway.

  2. I got this for my daughter for her birthday and she LOVED IT! It was great watching her open the box and see it sparkling right in front of her. She wears it all the time…she thanked me over and over for it. Which is worth the money to me…especially since it was not expensive.

  3. Love this necklace! I was a bit surprised at how small the pendant was for the price, but after trying it on im so happy! Its very comfortable which is important because I prefer a 14" chain. Im planning on wearing this daily so im hoping it wont tarnish. Delivery was very fast & was packaged beautifully!

  4. Because of the price and ordering jewelry online has not always been very successful for me, I did not expect much at all and it was my first time ordering jewelry on amazon. The box I got with this was nothing cheap and very pretty, then saw the ring and its not a huge stone but its very pretty. I love it a lot, I am so excited about it because the price was great. I wanted to upload a picture for visual purposes, but no option too. 🙁 22 commentsWas this review helpful to you?YesNoSending feedback…Thank you for your feedback.Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

I love this ring, i hope to take it in somewhere and get it resized means i how i ordered the wrong size and it is a bit loose but i love it so much i whear it every day, it is my sons birthstone so it makes it more special to me 🙂replica hermes customer service

  5. This necklace has BEAUTIFUL polished stones. It is so much more prettier in person than the picture shows. My son LOVES the colors, looking at it and feels the stones while he nurses. I was looking for a necklace with multiple colors and strong enough if my baby decided to yank or pull the necklace. This necklace was worth it and I don’t think I would have been happier with the others I’ve seen online. I was so happy with this necklace that I ordered another necklace from the seller. It is a longer, multi-colored amber necklace and this one has some cherry amber stones and this is just as BEAUTIFUL and well worth the money spent!!! Thank you Beata for creating such beautiful pieces!Michelle Lynn, MAReplica Van Cleef

  6. These earrings are just the right size, perhaps a bit bigger, for studs. They are a lovely shade of NATURAL (not color treated) light blue. Great for the summer, but fine for the winter. The settings are very sturdy and the gems sparkle. At this price, I would treat myself and think ahead to the holidays and the December birthdays. These would make a magnificent gift, paired with the available ring and pendant, for a special person!replica hermes enamel bracelet

  7. I was really skeptical at first because of some of the reviews, but this turned out to be a really good buy. I picked it up for my sister-in-law as a gift when she goes into labor with her baby girl. She loves pandas, and I thought this would be perfect. It wasn’t missing any stones, the metal is shiny, and the size is pretty perfect. Maybe a little larger than I would wear, but it looks really nice. Because of the great price, who knows how long it will last, but it was a good buy. I’m very happy and I know my sister-in-law will love it.Replica Van Cleef Perfume
