I went in looking for a leather "chain" for a pendant I have. I was given a price of $40 because "the metal is sterling". The following weekend I had one made for me at the swapmeet for $6 with sterling. I then went in to check prices for a sterling ball chain (I shop next door at Mother's often, may as well pop in to see if they've gotten a clue). The price for an 18" sterling ball chain was $74. Bought again at the OC marketplace the following weekend for $12. More recently, my neighbor took her engagement ring in to have a baguette replaced (she had the baguette, just needed it secured back into the ring). This process took a week and oddly, she maintains the @ 1/3 carat center stone "looks different" than it did before she took it to this place. I wouldn't trust them with fixing even a cheap earring, muchless buy anything from them. Insanely inflated prices and everyone in there appears to be a BS artist. No, sir; your fittings marked 925 are no better than the ones at the marketplace. And at least there they don't give a hard sell or insult my intelligence, saying "real leather" for a necklace is expensive.
