Quality Control ?
I love Rarities - absolutely fabulous designs BUT this line has serious quality control issues -- many times it is necessary to order multiples of an item in order to "find" one that is not defective. Why? These earrings, which I purchased to go with other Rarities Larimar & Amethyst pieces I already own, ARRIVED with one of the Amethyst gems missing from it's prong setting -- how does that happen? And how many other gemstones will fall out of their prong settings? This item, priced at gold levels, is simply too expensive to hope the gemstones will not fall out and too expensive to spend more money having my jeweler inspect and repair the settings. Also, the butterfly backs do not "click into place" on their posts - and they should (a seemingly common problem with Rarities' earrings). Carol Brodie talks about her jewelry with great enthusiasm but someone really needs to step up the quality control.Dymo, CAWas this review helpful? 13 out of 13 found this review helpful
