I would like to ask those of you who offer sterling omega chains
with your jewelry if you have had the same problems I have. I have
been frustrated with the surface quality of the chains I have gotten
in the past. There have been areas of uneven coloration and because
they are electroplated with a layer of fine silver, they cannot be
polished to remedy that.
I was frustrated with winding up with chains that I could offer for
sale because they looked bad so I decided to change sources. I
ordered from a different company on the recommendation of a fellow
Orchidian. I order I just received contains chains that have a
surface that, though it is supposed to be high shine, looks semi-mat
under slight magnification. The surfaces appear to have friction-type
abrasions on them. One of the chains has spots that are definitely
lighter than the rest of the surface–even visible to the naked eye.
I don’t know whether this is as good as it gets or whether I should
send these back and ask for a refund. I am not thrilled with the way
they look but don’t know where else to order from for a better
quality at a reasonable price.
