Why you should steer clear of Banana Republic’s jewelry
A reviewer for Whit and Whimsy wrote about a Banana Republic saleswoman who admitted a popular gold ring design would turn your finger green. Heather, a customer who purchased Banana Republic jewelry commented, “I was really disappointed with BR ‘gold’ jewelry. Paid a regular price for two necklaces and wore them only a few times each, and boom, they are turning greenish on the underside. No jewelry from BR again.”
If this happened to you, perhaps your first reaction would be to return the offending piece of jewelry, but this could be problematic. Lifestyle blogger Catherine O’Connell recently told Business Insider about Banana Republic’s return policy, “Take a close look at the jewelry before purchasing, as their return policy is very strict.”
We know now that green doesn’t always reflect envy. The next time we’re browsing through Banana Republic and are tempted by the sparkly accessories, it is with good assumption they might best be left in the store.
