Question about item: 395-201
Okay – I am not trying to be snarky, this is a genuine question that I hope someone can answer for me. Can I *please* have an explanation as to why these teensy little 5 x 7 MM garnet earrings – in vermeil, not gold – with zircons, not diamonds – warrant a price tag of $400? (395-201) I assume that a “Camrosette Garnet” must be something special, but I have searched high and low for information about them and have drawn a complete blank from all of my usual sources. Tanzanian garnets, even color change ones, are not all that rare or expensive. (Although nothing in the item description says anything about these being a color change stone.) And from the item image, the cut is nothing special, so…what is so exceptional about these? Anyone know? Is the Camrosette a specific mine of some repute which has somehow escaped my knowledge? I’m stumped.
some stones have crazy values. this may or maynot be the case. but, IF i wanted a stone of that value, i would only want it in solid gold.
I agree..I think it’s because they are Carol’s earrings..mined in Tanzania…Tanzanite can be found cheaper than these little earrings and in vermeil? I don’t think so.
G.B. Gems LLC bases out of NY, 1-4 employees and an annual revenue of less than half a million. Small potatoes in the gem world?
Maybe just because they’re Carol Brodie earrings. It looks like Camrosette was trademarked by a gem company, and these are the only Camrosette anything that exists, at least for now. An excuse to charge more for these “rarities.”
If I needed an inexpensive garnet stud, I’d consider 361-019 for only $16.90. Technibond, and somewhat similar in style and size.?
