I FIXED IT MYSELF!
on March 4, 2013
I just wanted a nice pair of everyday gold hoop earrings. These are a little pricey but this was actually the best price I found for the size that I wanted and even though on average the reviews were so so, I took a chance on them in hopes that I'd land among the lucky ones in the 4 and 5 star review category.
Well.... 3 stars is the best that I can do. They arrived promptly BEFORE the estimated delivery time which is great! The packaging was nice and I'd say almost elegant and that's cool, but the problem was the craftsmanship on the clasp of one of the earrings. The prong that holds that rod so that it is secure on your ear was way too loose and would not close. Instead of going through the trouble of sending it back I just took out my handy dandy pliers and squeezed the prongs together ever so gently as not to squeeze them too closely together or break the darn thing so it took some patience and a gentle steady hand but I did it! I fixed it myself! And for good measure I tightened the other one as well although it didn't really need it per say but I did it anyway just to be sure.
However, for the price of these earrings THAT should not have been something that I had to do upon their arrival. Why aren't these sort of things checked before sending them out people?!
Other than that, I CAN say that they are really cute, just the right size and I'll be keeping them now that I know that they are nice and secure on my ears.
