I thought I was on a winner, a web site with lots of jewellery on auction. The pictures and the quality looked good. The postage seemed expensive for such small items. Well I thought it does have to come to Australia and if the goods are as great as the pictures its worth it.
Gifts for friends and family I thought great, no driving around looking. Sit in the comfort of my home bidding, punching in numbers, winner, yeah, goods on the way.
Waited with anticipation for delivery to arrive, had ordered what I thought would be a fantastic ring for my partner, gold band with diamonds and a precious stone valued around the $700 mark, got it for $55. Things have been tough financially and wanted something nice for him.
Well what a dissapointment it was to get the package, rip it open to find what looked like nothing more than cheap costume jewellery, thin band and so called diamonds so small I could'nt see them and no sparkle in any light. The box I ordered for it cost $15 and turned out to be the nicest thing we recieved.
I had ordered other items and after reading what other consumers had said about rings on this site(which I stumbled onto) I tugged lightly on the pearl on top of the gold ring also with non existent diamonds and it came off all too easy, I could have cried, I ordered it for my mother who's birthday is coming up. The pearl necklace is laughable, unfortunately I have since bid on other items which I am praying that when they arrive are of much better quality than what I have already recieved. I have done nothing about sending anything back as I can not afford to be more out of pocket than I already am. I feel like a fool and will only stick with reputable Australian on line companies in future. I wish I had stumbled on this site sooner.
