Regarding the Czech Christmas trees: Please know that the source I acquired these trees from is a trusted Czech business. If there is a missing stone, it was missed by him, and in turn by me, and was not intentional. Unwrap carefully and check the packaging for any missing stones, and most likely, it can be finagled back into it’s place. Please understand, these are vintage pieces with hundreds of mini stones. The trees are final sale, but do contact me if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, and I will try to accommodate.
