I was shopping at Target one day, not looking for anything in particular, when I spotted a pair of earrings. They were really pretty light blue rectangular cut topaz in a delicate 10k gold setting. There was also a tiny diamond chip set just above the topaz. The earrings called out to me as they twinkled in the fluorescent lighting. Can you believe they were in the clearance section?! It was too good to be true...they were only $10!
I ended up wearing them just about everyday for a month until the fateful day. I was sitting at my husband's grandmother's house on mother's day when I noticed something fall into my lap. I reached up to my ear and realized the topaz had fallen out. As I frantically tried to place it back in the setting, the diamond also fell out. The setting was much too flimsy and started to break. Well it was a good 30 day run we had but I guess sometimes you get what you pay for.
