I am sorry to be posting this, but I feel obliged to warn my fellow
Orchidians, since I ran into problems with a company I originally
heard about on this forum.
I ordered several strands of beads from Asian Beads a few monthe
ago. Some of them were great, but one (fairly expensive) strand
arrived with several of the largest beads broken, and some
rhodocrosite beads were so pale they were hardly pink, quite unlike
I returned these, but have been unable to get my money back. There
is a credit waiting for me to order more possibly defective beads,
but it does not include the shipping cost both ways that I paid in
the defective strands.
I was hoping thaty knowing that I would post the results of the
interaction to Orchid would convince Asian Beads to do the right
thing. My emails are not being returned. This has been an expensive
exercise. So be cautious about ordering from these folks.
