I tried to copy the photo, but it didn't work. I think everybody can look at C&C's recent email and see the photo captioned "Antique charm and a modern sensibility".
Why are the jewels and jewelry always (or often) out of focus in photos from C&C ? The ring is especially bad, looks like a mushy blob of white. And none of the jewels and jewelry look attractive. Aren't we supposed to be marketing jewels/jewelry ? And doesn't C&C realize consumers, who mostly are unaware about M, need to be made aware that our jewel is beautiful, more beautiful than D ? How do we communicate that message about our jewel, with photos that don't display the jewel in a good way ?
