To follow TassieDevil/Judy's post about reproductions of antique jewellery made in India.
This was bought nearly 10 years ago from an Indian seller who used a pic of an antique beautiful bee brooch, rosecut diamonds, sapphires, silver on gold.
I wasn't aware then of this awful commercial practice...
Price was low, something about 200$, and of course, I asked for more pics and if it really was silver on gold!
Seller then said he hadn't it on hand at the moment, the piece being at the workshop for polishing...
This is what I got!
For the price, it may seem correct, but the deceiving was HUGE!
It is obvious I'd NEVER bought it from the pics showed here ;-)
Of course I contacted the seller, who told it WAS the actual item photographied!!!
He proposed to refund it MINUS THE SHIPPING COSTS. But the return shipping tracked from France was prohibitive cost, and I preferred to leave a big bad feedback to this scammer seller!
5.5cm or 2.1/8" wide. Unmarked rhodium plated silver...
