Good Picture online; in person Disappointment
on November 24, 2012
We purchased this as a gift, having to send it directly to the recipient. We did not receive the same ecstatic phone call as we have before with other items, so knew that something wasn't right. As it turns out, other family members who did get to see it (and agreed that other brooches we had sent as gifts were beautiful) noted that this one was a huge disappointment.
Bottom Line: The jewel in the center looks like a craft jewel.
You know it's bad when your Grandmother finds every way to say "thank you" for a gift without actually having to say anything specific about it! Moreover, when finally with her in person, we showed her the picture online and she said, "Oh, it does look beautiful in the picture... Now I see why you thought I'd like it... It's too bad it didn't look as nice in person!"
Ouch. Skip this brooch, there are other beautiful brooches available.
