Got my wife a bracelet for Valentine's made of silver (one of them pandora numbers). Had a look at it today and it's already got marks of tarnish.

Hope they aren't too much trouble when I change it tomorrow. I only bought it on Monday!
Um...if its 925 Silver it aint their problem if it tarnishes - it is what it is, I wouldn't take it back if I were them. Happy Valentines

Na it was wrapped up in a box. Which I had hidden in my man bag (it's ted baker so really no homo k?) which my wife decided to look inside today and found said box and wouldn't talk to me unless I let her open it. ...
Ted Baker man bag. Nice one . Tut, tut to your wife for taking a peek before the day. However, as it's tarnished, perhaps it's just as well. I hope you are able to change it without any hassle. I am sure you are always nice to shop assistants. It's amazing how helpful many can be when approached in the right way. Cheers Bro .

Re: Present - Valentine's Day (13th Feb)

I am more than slightly amused by the deterioration of this point. When I started at the first few posts I was seriously considering adding a gift idea.

But in reading to here, I have been laughing so much that I forgot all the ideas I had!

You just have to clean it with toothpaste and a toothbrush! It will get back to his shiny state!

Any thread involving LiB and Porschy is guaranteed to degenerate - fast!

Well duh! It's his wife...and she is slim, therefore if Porsch (her husband) buys her a gift, he's supposed to know what size she wears I would assume. *sigh* people nowadays
