Oval Aquamarine and Diamond Accent Pendant and Earrings Set in Sterling Silver
Pretty but colorless
I ordered this set for my fiancee for her birthday. Aquamarine is her birthstone and she is also very partial to light blues and blue-greens.
Looking at the online picture, I was pleased with the size(she doesn't like gaudy items) but the color didn't look right compared to other aquamarines I have seen, there was little to no blue in the pendant or the earrings. After much debate I decided to order it hoping it was possibly a poorly taken picture and didn't really depict the item properly.
I received the item within a couple days and my concerns were realized. The online picture did turn out to be an accurate depiction of the jewelry. I must say I was disappointed, but I suppose it was my own fault. I decided to keep it at least to let her determine if she liked it or not. She echoed my thoughts that it was very pretty but if you are looking for an blue or even blue green aquamarine then do not order this item. It was rather colorless with only a hint of green, so we decided to take it back.
Also if you like big pendants or earrings do not order this item for it is rather dainty.
I would consider it a good value and a well made item, the chain was thin but nicer than you would find at a department store, but it simply lacked the color we were looking for.
