Really disappointed with these and the service. Firstly, one earring was in a plastic bag and the other earring was not in a separate bag but within the other bag which was then sealed. Thus, thorough inspection not possible. After opening them, the earring that was effectively in two bags was an orangey red colour, more like mongolian andesine, while the other was a bright red stone, as expected for tarocco red andesine. I rang Gemporia and was told this was the last pair in stock, so a replacement could not he offered. I asked if the orangey red stone could be replaced as really wanted to keep them to go with other items with the same stone bought previously. I was told this was not possible and that they would probably be disposed of. I find this hard to believe since Gemporia offer a repair service, which includes replacement of stones, but also as they can't really sell them to another customer in their current state and it seems poor business sense not to try and sell them, especially when I would gladly buy them.
These earrings are beautiful, great colour and size.
