eBay is not always a bargain...Ripka earrings

ok, I'll admit it. I always go to eBay when I'm looking for something in particular, after I've shopped around at retail, to see where I can get the best price. this time, though, I found something on eBay that I really liked and I've been "watching" it for a couple of weeks. finally, I decided to see if it was available on the retail market ( I didn't know whether or not it was a retired piece). the earrings I've been watching were " pre owned" and listed at an opeing bid of $399. I found them at Nordstrom for $124 less . so I decided this would be my Christmas treat for myself. I bought them, honestly, prepared to be dissappointed...I figured they would be much smaller than I expected and not anywhere near as pretty as the photo.

but, wowza was I wrong! they are definitely what I was looking for and I couldn't be happier.
