Loose garnet, darn it!


One of the product review offerings from the Vine Program last week was a pair of 18k Yellow Gold Plated Sterling Silver Garnet Twisted Hoop Earrings.

Maria can never get enough earrings and these looked pretty nice. The list price is $104.99, and Amazon’s price is $49.18. But since they’re offered to Vine Program members for review, they were free to me.

Maria loves garnets and other red gemstones so they seemed a perfect choice.

I was excited to hand her the little black box that arrived in today’s mail, but the excitement turned to disappointment when she noticed that the center garnet from one of the earrings was out of its setting and loose in the little zip lock bag in which they were packed.

Fortunately, I was able to superglue it back into place and managed the process without making a superglue mess on or in the setting.

Now that it's repaired, she's eager to wear them for the Holiday Season.garnet02
