Rip-off – Reasons NOT to buy from them:
1. I bought an expensive Spanish designer leather and metal bracelet. Was told it was silver alloy, it turned out to be metal alloy with 12 micron silver plating after I checked the designed website.
2. The price was $194, $214 with tax. The designer website (retail price, not wholesale mind you) has it for $145 plus $23 for shipping - 25% less at least. Margin of 25%?
3. The very next day the leather strap started showing signs of distress - getting white where it goes to the buckle. As I brought it back, they advised me to use SADDLE OIL - wow, I forgot I should always buy it when I buy jewelry! I have a ton a genuine leather things and NEVER had to buy saddle oil.
4. Most important: the store has no refund, just exchange or store credit. And you are supposed to use the EXACT amount. They did me "a favor" by exchanging the bracelet for an item 4 dollars less expensive, promising a store credit for this amount. Ridiculous! This other bracelet, slightly under $200, costs $70 at an international artisans crafts website for the same Indian piece of jewelry. I know that for sure because I have a necklace of the same design. Never again - this is a rip off!
Great Customer Service and the Best silver around – So, while I was driving around in the Rice Village I spotted a silver shop. This silver shop was J. Silver, J. Silver has the best one of a kind pieces and their prices are great! It is a great shop if you like one ot the kind pieces and usually in The Houston Chronicle there is a coupon. I righly recommend it if you are bored with the same old pieces at the department stores... If you go there on the weekend it really is not that crowded you think it is because there is not any parking in the front... But, I will tell you a secret you can park in the Walgreen's parking lot and buy like a drink later and it's all good. The Walgreen's is sort of behind J.Silver you have to turn to the right to get to it if you are coming away from the store. Happy Hunting for the best deal!
