"not as pictured"

Could be as pretty as on website if artist had taken more time to match stones in color and size, had not used squares w broken tips, had chosen a better center stone. Realize natural stones differ in color, but attention to detail is needed. Am very very disappointed as my necklace is so different than expected. Considering returning/asking for refund.
