I purchased a (supposed) "Elsa Peretti" Madonna Pendant off of eBay the other day. The listing looked alright, but not great.I figured it was just the seller hurrying along or something. The bidding was only up to about $70, so I figured I could get a good deal on a not-so-popular-and-unlikely-faked necklace. When I received the pendant today, it was completely fake. This just makes me so mad! I have been a Tiffany customer all my life, and have only purchased two other Tiffany items on eBay (both of which were authentic). I am pretty much an expert at figuring out whether it's fake or not (I can even identify it on stupid chicks in passing). Well, I was surely surprised when I opened the envelope today. The box was a cheap, crappy paper that said "JEWELRY CASE MADE IN THAILAND". Now, if that doesn't scream "FAKE", I don't know what does. Why the hell would they even stamp that on???? The paper was un-textured, unlike the authentic Tiffany boxes. The necklace came in a Tiffany RING bag, not a necklace one. I think the bag was actually real. The necklace itself was quite a piece of work. The pendant had all the right lines, but this could have been easily accomplished by creating a mold. There was no marking at all on the reverse of the pendant. NO "PERETTI" or anything. The chain looked pretty good but the two little bars that attach the chain to the clasp were rounded (authentic is always squared) and the Peretti signature was crappy. The link connecting the bars to the clasp itself was soldered crooked and the clasp was seriously corroding. I am so mad at this person, but even more mad at myself for being so dumb. I have already filed a complaint with Paypal, but eBay won't let you file one for 10 days. I am seriously thinking of turning this idiot in to the police. Oh, and get this: In the listing, she states "If you aren't satisfied, you have 7 days to return it and get a refund". Good way to get out of being turned in. Sorry, just needed to vent. Has this happened to anyone else, and if it has, how did you deal? DUMB!!!!
