So I picked up the Berricle earrings and necklace I ordered for the good lady for Christmas, which were caught by customs and then slowly crawled through the postal system... lol
They are amazing! So much coloured fire and sparkle, I am seriously impressed. Compared to the dull, lifeless lumps of plastic (or what looks like plastic) she wears at the moment, they are night-and-day better.
Not on a par with here-ring, obviously but they are superb for their cost. Clear material, crisp faceting, no sign of any double-refraction or anything like that (but then I think that's only a moissanite thing??), and the settings seem great quality, despite being only silver. The rounds perform well and the asschers also perform well! They are perhaps a bit 'quiet' off-axis, but then I think that is also true of diamond.
The necklace chain does look extremely delicate, though, but that is a simple and inexpensive thing to swap/replace if needed.
I need to get the tape measure out as the earrings and the ring both look a bit smaller than I imagined they might, so I'll measure the stones to confirm, but I think perhaps it's just a male thing of thinking things look bigger than they actually are until you measure them...
Next time I would/will order a mm or so larger!
I think I'm going to tuck them away for Valentine's Day lol
I’m happy you like them! I bought my mom a cushion necklace ..She loves it.
