Advice on pearls? Macys OK?

bigdaikon 325 36 November 17, 2011 at 09:16 PM More Macy's Deals
Hello,

I am looking for advice on getting pearls.

I would like to get something nice.

I saw yesterday that most of Macy's BF jewlery sales were online so I splurged and got a bunch knowing that I could return any or all of it within 30 days for a refund.

Does Macy's have good stuff or is it overpriced junk and I should cancel now?

Anyone have any experience?

Thank you so much!

Not really the forum for this but hey it's not like we have a Pearl Forum. Yet! laugh out loud Umm...

Mikimoto is the best you can buy. Not sure if Macy's carries them but most of Macy's costume jewelry is junk. I experienced this first hand when they were having a large sale and there were a lot of broken pieces/things falling apart. One lady near me picked up a pair of earrings and they broke off in her hand and fell to the floor. When it comes to fine jewelry I stick to fine jewelers and Macy's may sell it but they don't meet the standards IMO. Blue Nile is a popular jeweler among users here. Mikimoto also tells you all about different types of pearls and how to buy them:

If what you bought meets your standards and you feel it's a good value then keep them.

I bought a necklace from them (they keep promoting themselves on Groupon) and was happy with it... They claim it has some overly inflated value (which I don't believe). Was it worth the $79 I paid? I think so... But I also used Shop Discover, so got 15% off my Groupon purchase price SO...

Cancel! Macy's online is horrible in service, if you want to return, make sure to keep ALL documentation -- you need original (attached) tags, invoice, and receipt to return.

When shopping for pearls, a strand's price is based on how well matched and uniform the set is, as well as the uniformity and color of each individual pearl.

have you looked at costco? Smilie
