@Stallion reminds me of the first piece of jewelry, a shitty diamond CHIP necklace… that my husband, whom At the time was my boyfriend…(I should have pondered that in hindsight) ever bought me… ughh ahhh ughhhhh gawd…from Walmart…i believe i said, thanks! Did you get the dog food too while you were there? Can’t miss it, it’s right next to the freakin jewelry counter!!! Omg… 15 years later and I’m not sure where it’s at… probably took it back for a microwave
@jdserrano1 Ha Ha I can imagine the pain!!!:) Even when I was young I’d buy girlfriends quality jewelry. My dad always had my mom trimmed out in nice stuff from europe, so I guess that’s where I get it. My wife now doesn’t complain every time we set a $100 Christmas gift limit and I come home with diamonds and sapphires:)
@revloki I think these are a fine purchase for an “okay” relationship. “Real” anything (pearls included) are nice. Better than going to a big box store and buying something that the finish might rub off on in a month… oops. Hope these don’t do that!
@alacrity The exchange rate improves dramatically after drinking the the first 16oz. And you can switch to Matt’s Special Mehrgarita for more savings on the second and third. After that, its four on the floor until …
The problem here is that giving someone a pair of pearl earrings says, “I was thinking of you and picked out something I think you’ll like.” But three pairs says, “I’m giving you these because I got a deal on some pearls.”
Fortunately, there is a solution. Give one pair to each of three special ladies! Er, in private. On different days. Ideally in different cities.
If they are so bad, why did they sell out 3 times last time they were offered? And yet again? Hmmm, think I will set my alarm for 1 PM Pac time. Any advice? This will be my first experience as a VMPer trying to snatch up the precious few holdovers!
@dlcarson maybe look at the old sales and see if you can guesstimate how long they lasted then… other than that, just hope it goes through or that they will be offered yet again… maybe as the offer that showed up on my phone (see screenshot above)
I would wear the rose gold/pink, the yellow gold/white matches the earlier Meh necklace I gave my mom this Christmas (and thus would be an excellent birthday or Mother’s Day present), and hopefully sometime this year I’ll find a cute girl to give the white gold/black pair. So yes, bought the silver one.
