@Pufferfishy yep, and equally ugly, too! This is beyond Meh, all the way to Ick. (Just thinking what I’d say to anyone over the age of, say 6 y.o. who gave this to me for any reason, and can’t avoid an obscenity. Heh.)
@Pufferfishy That’s a 16" strand (which also happens to look like really crappy quality) while the one here is 45". I’ll keep repeating myself - No, they’re not. At least until you find me a comparable 45" strand for your suggested $3.
I have the ivory and blue versions; they work well with casual v- or scoop-neck tops.
Would I pay anywhere near ‘sticker’ price for them? Heck no. They are great as summer-beachy accessories, not fine jewelry.
…Does that really say “rull noys” or is something wrong with my phone? Because google says that’s Catalan–but only after I forced it to actually search for “rull noys” instead of what it thinks I meant (“full boys”).
…and now I’m now wondering if this was all just a clever ploy to get me put on some sort of list.
@Kidsandiz. I am aware that they are dyed mother of pearl (although I have the “natural” color). I still layer them with my real, undyed, just like they came from the oyster shell pearls and they blend nicely. Lots of different gauges of sizes, shapes & strand lengths but all the same color. Quite lovely.
I guess I could choose bright & facetted chunks of plastic or glass entombed in gold/silver-like metal and be much fancier but I like this look.
