Made in China Less Than Expected
on November 29, 2011
Not being a frequent Amazon shopper, but willing to do the occasionaly purchase, I purchased this product for my wife for Christmas. The product was packaged well for shipping from Amazon and that's the best feedback. The necklace was in a small plastic bag with the chain twisted and stuck to the "Made In China" sticker in the plastic bag. While it wasn't that difficult to unravel, when you manipulate any small necklace chain, it can be a challange not to break or bend it. Obviously i'm glad i inspected the package because the Made In China sticker was a real put off in terms of presentation. I don't mind it being made there, but i would rather it be on the box not attached to the product with a sticky wrap around lable. Be aware that the picture presentation on the Amazon web site makes the product "appear" much bolder, larger and brighter than it does in hand. While not quite requiring a magnifying glass to see, the diamond accents are not impressively visible as they are made to appear on the web site. While the product states "Tahitian Pearl", i suspect it's actually a metal ball although this was my impression based on the "ping" sound it made when i was manipulating it on a dresser to ready it for presentation in the box. I believe the product is very overpriced for the value received but others may have differing opinions. The bottom line is this is not a piece of jewelry that you will want to purchase to impress that special someone, but it can serve as an ensemble piece or small gift.
