I have over 20 pieces at this point. The prices are correct and were lower than in-store for the pieces that were also sold outside the boat. Many similar ones at Macy's were lesser stones. I think maybe my pearls were the same as in-store but it still saved me sales tax so still not concerned. They are a fun brand.
All my jewelry was repaired when the one piece had a clasp get a bit loose. No problems or issues.
If you don’t like pressure in sales and will buy something you don’t want don’t play the charm bracelet collecting. Yes they are salespeople and they are good at what they do, the upgrade policy is real, so if you don’t like what you got they will help you. And if you don’t know what you're buying use your own digression. This part is mostly after reading the other reviews. If you are on your first cruise, ask questions and understand your purchase and if you're playing price club, it’s probably the best price but yes, there are many factors in jewelry. Anyone can buy a jeweler’s loop and learn to look at the pieces. 10 bucks on Amazon.
Sorry I can’t empathize with persons upset over $300 on a piece but on the ones I thought I had been overcharged on, mine had color sapphires not cheaper stones and that made a similar look but a big difference. The prices are online, so it’s difficult.
If you're on a boat and can’t spare the cash and can’t say no the boutique, it may be the wrong place for you, but if you have some spending funds and want to start a collection of fun pieces it’s a great place to spend the cruise.
I wear Effy every day. My ruby sea turtle is probably my favorite piece.
