You know the old adage 'if something seems too good to be true - it is'? Well I'm fairly sure that some of us have forgotten that lol. I'm talking about the 'cheap and cheerful' ads that pop up all over social media, based on your web searches - or not in some cases!
After I saw a post in one of my jewellery forums, I thought that I'd do an experiment and spend £12.58 on some jewellery from Wish (other sites are available!). I mean - how bad could they be - the photos are amazing right? Yup - they really are - mainly because most of them are screen scraped (e.g. stolen) from the actual makers sites, and aren't really photos of what you'll receive - ugh.
£12.58 seems like a very specific amount I know - but that's what I paid for all of these pretty things 😍 I mean - a silver hammered ring for free?! Had to snap that up surely?!
So while I'm waiting patiently for them to arrive, I'd love to know if you've had any experiences with buying from these sites? Good or bad - lets hear them!
