Bradford Exchangejunk jewelry - not like the picture

I ordered a 49er ring for my wife's birthday in ocotber, when it said 4-6 weeks for delivery. When I didn't hear from them, they said that due to the high quality specialty item, it wouldn't ship until after christmas.

So I early november, a ring showed up. Covered in "made in china" stickers, this "handcrafted beauty" had a stone that looked like a broken piece of pink plastic. Nothing like the red, clear ruby in the advertisement.

I sent it back, with specific complaint and instructions that I wanted on that looked like the picture, with a ruby stone. I got back the same low quality piece that I had returned. I have sent several letters in to get this cleared up, but no response.

Latest news. Here is the letter from bradford exchange saying they will attempt to fix this in the future, but unfortunately the crappy pink color is all that they have.

Truth in advertising? I think not. Read an beware.
