Two months and no earrings

So we all know the worst bad service can happen on ebay. I've had pretty good luck with ebay so far. So I was searching for diamonds and I found a very pretty, very cheap pair of fake diamond earrings. They were from a company who sells a crapload of them, so they can afford to sell them for low low prices (plus 10 dollars for shipping, yeah it's a rip off but the earring were only 1.25).
First, there was a mix up that was my fault. I paid via paypal. In a moment of true stupidity, I accidently used an address I no longer live at. Instead of emailing them the mistake, I hit the back button during payment and changed my address. No suprise, I was charged twice. I emailed them immediately and recieved an immediate response, saying the incorrect one would be refunded. Thus ends the good service.
From here on out, I recieve at least once a day telling me I need to pay for the item, and if I recieved this notice in error, to email them. Which I did, everytime I recieved the email. Finally I recieve a confirmation that included my correct address. Problem solved, right?
Nope. A month goes by and no earrings. So I email once. No response. Email 3 days later. no response. After the third email, I recieve a stock "your email has been recieved and will be answered in blah days" response. fast forward to today, about a week and a half later.

I send this email, i'm getting testy here.

This is the FOURTH e-mail I have sent. I won an auction almost two months
ago and have not received my earrings.nor
have I heard back from your company after four emails. If I do not receive
any correspondence by the end of the week, I will
be forced to file a complaint with my bank and paypal for a refund, as well as
leave negative feedback. Really, I just want the earrings I paid for.  Please
