    Let me start by saying a big Thank You to all who inspired, encouraged and helped me search for my emerald earrings.

    About a year and a half ago I fell in love with these Temple Saint Clair Elena Earrings. I first noticed them in a jewelry case at Off Fifth. The price was $3500. I watched them, hoping the price would drop, for almost a year. After a year of hoping for a price drop, they seemed to have sold.

    Around February 3rd, 6 months after they have vanished, these earring reappeared in Off Fifth's cases. These earrings were vastly discounted, now $1399.00 with an additional 40% off (final price $900), and potentially in my grasp. I just needed to discuss with hubby. After 5 days of talking, he told me I can go buy them. I went to the store, and they were sold. I was very disappointed. I spent the next 2 weeks checking the cases hoping they would return. During this two week period, I read Restricter's thread. She said she had visited 3 different Off 5th locations. Her thread gave me the idea to ask the store to search other locations. On Friday, after 1/2 an hour working with a wonderful sales associate, I was able to purchase the last pair in the company. I received them in the mail today, and I am in love.

    The earrings I purchased are the same as the link below (sorry I am not able to post pictures at the moment). Original retail was $5500. My total, including tax and shipping came to abot $910.00. Thank you for letting me share.
