A mixed bag today, some of which have gone straight back lol.

Firstly this stunning pink pearl necklace. It was really lovely but unfortunately not for me. It's a very classy, sophisticated piece and that's an image I can't manage.

I knew instantly this was going back. I've heard so many people saying how lovely the flower cut is but I didn't like it at all. Maybe it was because the stone itself was clear (it would probably look nicer with a coloured gem) but to me it looked like something a 6 year old would get in a lucky bag. Sorry if anyone has this and loves it, we all have different tastes :)

and know the keepers

This is gorgeous, much more suited to my taste. The pearls are a lovely deep colour.

I love these earrings. They are a good size without being heavy. I didn't realise that the upper circles have topaz set into them. They give the earrings a bit of sparkle. The description says champagne pearls but they are more golden in colour.

I also ordered a few ribbons from the CR website. They give a more contemporary look to some of my larger pendants and a steal at only two pounds each.

I got the 7 strand pearl necklace today Siren and I love it, but then I'm a classy old bag:rolleyes: so it's my cup of tea!!

I've got the 5 pearl necklace, similar to your 3 pearl, and if I'd seen yours I'd have bought it too.

I think the flower cut probably does look better in a coloured stone, I don't know, but I'm just imagining.

Still 2 out of 4's not bad, and you know it'll be no hassle getting a refund.

Hello Siren
I'm feeling the same way about this too :cry: I have flower cut earrings in smokey quartz & amethyst & am happy with them, but I just don't like this ring I think something is lost with the clear gem...maybe earrings would work better....but I don't think its my bag

I got the clear flower pendant today Siren and I thought it just wasn't quite right but couldn't put my finger on the reason why....... but I think you're absolutely right, it would look much better in a coloured stone.

Might keep it anyway because most of my order is going back and I want to keep something

lovely the pearly bits - all so pretty. shame about the show-stopper necklace but if it's not right, it's not right.
I have had that clear topaz flower design in a pendant today as I wanted an example of it. it was only 9 but I've decided not to keep it.

looks like you'll be spending your refund again soon!

Lovely haul Siren. I have 2 flower cut rings and I wear them together and have had lots of compliments. I think this would work well if you had some of the coloured ones......

I agree with your choices on the ones to keep and the ones to return. Love the earrings with the gold pearl attached.
I was never really been a pearl person but bought myself a necklace recently and have worn it several times.

Enjoy your new treasures. xxx Angie

Lovely pieces Siren, Rocks do seem to do some lovely pearls, can't wait for them to get hold of some Tahitians. I haven't seen a flower cut yet, it looks unusual, I think a dark stone like smoky quartz or mozambique garnet would suit it best.
