@yakkoTDI One time when I was very young and definitely naive, I had given my mother a last minute Mom’s day gift that seemed to be below her meager expectations and I asked her when Children’s Day was. She answered, “Every day is Children’s Day”.
Now that I understand the dynamic a lot better, I wish I could go back and give my parents more fitting appreciation for Mother’s or Father’s Day, but it is now too late for that.
And @mike808, it appears you have called it, what looks like the same item is on StellaCarmina for thirty bucks more. I shall disdain it in both places; diamonds are not my thing. (And I inherited more jewelry than I will ever wear anyway.)
@hchavers Unfortunately for me, I am the closest thing to a Bond Girl that has ever been in my life, sporty/artsy or otherwise. And I’m underwhelmed by diamonds except as abrasive grit and specialty cutting tools; they can be pretty rad there.
@werehatrack@whomeyesu wow, what a ride. People were pissed, and rightfully so. Even the ones that were “right” didn’t look like the picture.
It seems that, while meh used to buy a bunch of overstocked crap and then sell it, they are now just selling stuff from other sources and never actually taking possession of it. Probably just getting a commission for the sale. That’s really disappointing. Expect many more issues just like that bracelet if that’s the case.
Having lost all 3 mother’s (birth-, step-, and in-law), I considered this for my spouse. We exchanged thought messages about it, and hers read: “If you buy this for me, you’re an idiot.” The woman wears street-market shell earrings and $6 watches…
@Felton10 Particularly when the same item has already made a run through overstock dot com, where they had the lack of comprehension to price it at more than four times this sale’s level. I understand the theory of “Always Pitch And Price For A Retail Home Run”, but sometimes you just gotta understand that your middle-school knuckler high and outside is going to get ignored in the big leagues every time.
Around 50 stones with a total weight of one carat; that’s about .02 carats per each. And for a claimed round cut, that equates to a diameter of about 1.75mm, or just over 1/16". Looks like the plating doesn’t extend to the bezel around each stone, because there’s no way that the face of each link could be fully covered by a 1.75mm round-cut diamond.
@werehatrack Assuming that this bracelet is 7 inches long (at the low end of the range for a typical women’s bracelet), then each link’s total size is just a tiny bit under .14", or a bit over 1/8". And the stone would cover about half that diameter. Yeah, these photos are from the manufacturer. I’d rather see a pic of one of the staffers wearing it, including their expression of “joy” at the prospect.
@Pufferfishy I thought about leaving one, but then I figured that there’s no point in educating a seller about mistakes when it’s more likely that they’ll simply get better at lying than be more honest. (The folks here at Meh have shown at least some willingness to own up to what they know they’re peddling, which is why I stick around.)
