Internet Scam

I received a ring as a gift that was ordered from Glencara.com, but it came a week later than anticipated. The I had to send the ring back because of sizing issues. It was sent to them January 4th, 2012 and I still haven't gotten it back and there has been EXTREME lag time between emails. Some people have had great success with them. I, unfortunately, have not. It's a hit or miss. You would be better off flying to Ireland and buying it in person.

Buyer Beware. Get what you pay for? Not!

Buyer Beware! Get what you pay for? Not!

I saw a beautiful ring- advertised as diamond and gold- on the Glencara website. Some of the stones were described as "high quality natural diamonds" with specific color and clarity information, while another was described as a diamond, white in color. It also included an appraisal showing a value higher than the retail price. I sent an email asking for more details. No reply. I called Glencara, and was told that all of the stones "should be of the same quality". Based on that conversation, I ordered the ring. My receipt listed the word "diamond" four times.

The ring arrived loose in a bag, sans fine jewelry box and promised appraisal. They also had not purchased any additional insurance to cover any loss or damage. I thought that was odd. Why would such a valuable ring be shipped like costume jewelry? That was the first clue that the ring was not what it claimed to be.

I brought the ring to a jeweler who used a diamond tester and also examined it under magnification, and he told me that the stones were CZ, not diamonds. The ring was worth about $500 less than what I had paid for it, according to the jeweler.

When I told Glencara that the ring advertised on their website, and described by a sales rep, as "high quality diamonds", was not what I had received, Glencara said that the larger stone was CZ, but that the other stones "should be" diamonds. This was the first time the term "CZ" was used.

I said that I would send the ring back since the ring sent to me was not what I had ordered. They wanted me to send it back without insurance to save on shipping costs. Of course, if it was lost or damaged in transit, I would be out of luck. I was unwilling to take the risk, so I paid for both tracking and proper insurance. Glencara also told me not to list the value of the ring on the customs' form- that was to "save on customs' fees". You can read between the lines to figure out what they meant by that request. Meanwhile, the United States post office requires you to list the value on the form.

I did get a refund on the ring, but only a little over 1/3 of the shipping cost was refunded despite the fact that I was sent the wrong item through no fault of my own. Bait-and-switch, anyone? I guess I should be grateful that I lost less than $50 on this transaction. I am also glad that I used a credit card.

Bottom line, learn from my mistake. DO NOT buy jewelry over the internet, and DO NOT buy anything from this less-than-candid company.

Wrong item sent- getting return shipping refunded was hell

I was sent the wrong item by Glencara (see my earlier review, "Get what you pay for? Not!") and finally got a full refund of my return shipping costs minus the service fees charged by Paypal which was the service used. This only occurred after Glencara read one of my complaints online and contacted me, guess it pays to complain online, because when I wrote a number of emails to their customer service rep, I got only a partial refund.

The small loss I suffered will remind me never to purchase jewelry over the internet again, but rather from my local department store or a trusted online retailer such as Amazon.

Glencara

We ordered a ring on the 24th December for $50.22 AU on the understanding we could return within a 30 day period (60 days if purchased in December which was the case) The ring was late arriving,arrived on the 9th January.It was definitely not what we thought it would be so promptly returned it by air mail recorded on the 11th January to the address on the slip which was the one in Galway.We have received no communication for them at all and despite numerous emails they refuse to respond.This is very poor business,they now have the goods plus our money.The package arrived with an address TRK,Corner House,Lowlands Road,St Sampson,Guernsey,Channel Islands GY2 4NZ which is different from their website which says Galway.
We are pensioners and are keen to purchase something more suitable for a special occassion but cannot get our refund.
Please can someone help?

Order never received

I placed an order for a ring for my daughter for Christmas (over a month ago) The ring never was received and I have made numerous attempts to correspond with the company asking that my order be shipped or that my money be refunded I have gotten nothing but emails that promise to correct this. To date I have not received a refund or my order. I will not recommend Glencara nor will I ever place an order with them again. Please consider placing your order with another company!
