.  Solids were supposed to be a collectible and therefore gain in value, not be like a car and lose money as soon as you walk out of the showroom. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

I like solids but now view them in “real” terms to use an economist's jargon.  One solid is equal to a mortgage repayment, a new pair of shoes etc.  Can I justify spending that amount of money on an ornament?  In the end EL are just ignoring the basics of marketing.  Who is king?  The customer, the customer, the customer!!  How do you focus your business: on what the customer wants, on what the customer wants!! Well this customer wants solids to be cheaper (much), better quality, prettier, and come with a limited edition signed certificate giving a number out of the total  <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> – otherwise they are just a pretty perfume, not a collectible <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> .

Hi I'm Kasi and haven't been here in a while

I agree with you totally Lyndell. I agreed with you a couple of years ago and stopped purchasing the entire line from Neimans, Lord and Taylor and Harrods. Now I only buy what I really like
Also I think the poduction has gotten worse and the flaws worse and not better. magnetic clasps ala china…give me a break…. Not at these ridiculous prices.

Why can't they number them like they did the mothers day necklace? Then we would really know how many were made….
