My necklace came in and I DON'T LIKE IT!

HELP!!! I ordered my necklace online from Etsy and I didn't know it before I bought it but all sales are final from the shop owner I bought it from, urghhh. :( I asked her to make an exception but she said "no."


Anyway...I don't like the necklace. It looks kind of cheap, I hate the 2 big fake diamonds in the middle and the chain that is holding it all together is really cheap looking too. Also, the back of it scratches me and turns my chest red and I can't be red on my wedding day!!! There are just a ton of negatives and barely any positives about the necklace.


UGH! NOOOO!!! But it was $70 with shipping cost and everything. I'm so mad. What do I do?!?! I can't look cheap on my wedding day! I can't let a cheap, fake looking necklace ruin my overall wedding look! But this stupid necklace was so damn expensive!


HELP I ordered my photo 3478373-1


My mom said she would wear it with her MOB dress, she's not as picky as I am plus no one will be looking at her on my wedding day. Lol.


So, I think I'll make my final decision when I have my first dress fitting in the beginning of August and try the necklace on with my dress then. But I already know it won't look good with my dress. :( Ugh.


I'm going to bring the necklace shopping with my mom tomorrow because we're going to look for her MOB dress. So, we can see if it goes with any potential dresses she likes.

Do you know anyone who is crafty and could maybe do something to class it up? What about small felt or silk put on part of back that scratch? I'm so sorry you have to deal with this.


What about selling it on ebay to get some $$ back?

I could probably saw down the prick on the back of the necklace that scratches me with some sand paper.


But as for the cheesy fake diamonds in the middle, I'm afraid to mess with those or let someone else mess with those b/c it might just make it look worse, ya know?! And that necklace was too dang expensive to screw up and make it unwearable!


GRRRR.

Awww! I am so sorry to hear that! I purchased a tiara from Etsy.com and I tried to make myself love it but I just couldn't. I ended up letting my niece Brianna wear it. I am so sorry you had to spend 70.00, but it would be nice if your mom wore it if she likes or gift it to your MOH. You sound like you don't really like the necklace, so I say find you something you like and let someone else wear it!

I agree with MrsCale. Also, 1 tip. When I have a necklace that itches me, I apply nail polish topcoat to the part that itches. Just 2 coats of topcoat, allow it to dry, and voila, no irritation!! You may want to try it.

That totally sucks that it's not what you thought!! I would also be pretty upset at spending money on something I didn't want to wear either. But that's great if your mom can wear it. I repeat: Don't wear it just because you spent money on it. If you don't really love it, you will not be happy looking back at pics of you wearing it! Total bummer that she doesn't accept returns. poop.

It is so hard to shop online sometimes! I think it would be great for your mom to wear, and you can even make it her gift! That way, you don't feel as though you are "out" the money, you've just reorganized the budget to include it as the gift for her. :)

Well, it turns out my mom doesn't like it either. We both just think the 2 big fake diamonds in the middle just look so cheesy and too fake.


And I really tried to get the Etsy shop owner to take it back but she just wouldn't budge and was actually really rude to me about it. Ugh. :(


I'm so over wasting money on my wedding and things turning out badly. I just want to get married already!
