Jewelry Talk…Sparkle and Shine…Take 2!
Our first thread got too BIG!!!!!!! SO…here is Take 2!
With all the different Jewelry Threads, it’s getting confusing for some..so let’s just put it all in one place. You want to talk jewelry? Let’s talk! Any designer, any brand…any time! Have a question? Shoot…some might have an answer. Have a favorite? Share! We might ALL like it! Not sure…tell us, we’ll talk you into it! LOL
So…Let’s talk BLING!
Sean, congratulations on your promotion to Pro 3…you deserve it!!!
I just got the Colleen Lopez 422-136~ For me it is a dud. Setting looks and feels cheap-tanzinite is tiny – the amy deserved better.
Sorry if any of you have and love this, just my opinion.
I’ve never bought her rings before, I also hv the silver kunzite 3 stone coming.
Good afternoon everyone! Been a hectic day. My husband is a little ill today.
First time in forever. Now that he is fine I can get into a little trouble.
STELLA it was good to see you last night! Prayers to your dad and family.
Cindy glad you are alright!!! Snow good stash!!! Everyone else enjoy your
shopping. I hope I look like Christy when I’m 61!:womanlol: Been watching
her show since last night.
Oh no, I spoke too soon. Just received my Rarities sodalite and moonstone earrings. One of the moonstones on one earring is sheer perfection while the other moonstone on the other earring is about 90% clear. Doesn’t anyone try to match stones at all?
New Emma Skye coming in…LOVE these..
Did ya miss me? I SURE missed all of you and it’s going to take me a week to read everything to catch up…But I got my Facets ring Tues…I already had this bracelet..and it works like a charm with it!
Sean…I am sick about that Rarities Prasiolite ring! I cannot believe what I was seeing! GLUE??? I think I migh be done with Rarities for a while. That just completely turned me off.
But I have to catch up with you all…you talk a lot!!! LOLOL
Thank you for the prayers and wonderful thoughts and emails. You all are wonderful!
Been watching the Joan Boyce jewelry show. I just love her and her jewelry. I am behaving and haven’t ordered…..yet. Anyone else hear the caller Angela? She seemed like such a fun person. Any chance Angela is on this thread? She was naming all the jewelry items she owns, quite the collection. Joan Boyce will be back on later today. I am thinking about a couple of her collar necklaces. I would order her earrings, but I am allergic to nickel. I posted the question to customer service during her last earring TS and they said they couldn’t confirm if her earrings are nickel free. I’ll have to contact her company myself because if they are nickel free, look out!!!!
Did you order anything last night Karen???? What did I miss????
Good morning jewelry fans….sorry I didn’t get back to you last night about the condition of my recent Rarities purchases. I had two doctor appointments yesterday, ran errands and spent time with my daughter and grandson until late last evening. I was exhausted.
I’m elated to report that all 4 pieces, the prasiolite ring, the turquoise/jade earrings/ring and the sapphire/ruby earrings all arrived in perfect condition. This is the first time in months and months that nothing is defective and that I don’t have to repair or return anything. So now all I have to worry about is how well they will withstand wearing and the test of time. I refuse to purchase the jewelry protection policies anymore. Anything this expensive shouldn’t need a jewelry protection plan.
Sean, I don’t think I will ever wear the prasiolite ring without thinking about you and your ring…I’m so sorry yours arrived the way it did.
Did anyone order anything from Carol’s show last night? I saw that Vette ordered the pink sapphire tattoo ring that looked gorgeous!
Good morning ladies, hope all is well with all of you:-) Good morning Nettea and Stella ( you two are special 🙂 I am enjoying Joan Boyce, how do you guys like her jewelry? I have purchased a pair of shoes from her that are very comfortable and I have a pair of her PJ’s which I love. I have not purchased jewelry from her yet. Her pieces look lovely on TV.
Seanchai, I would go back and comment but you might not read back that far, so THANK YOU for the information about the gem treatments and loops. It’s really interesting. Also, read your note to Ms. B. Nicely done and I hope you hear back and that the quality and reliability are improved.
Goodnight to the nightowls. I’m going to try to get some rest tonight. Nite.Nite. :womanwink:
ok- Seanchai are you my long lost Irish cousin once removed or……..?
I love your mind and soul. :heart::cathappy:
Okay having said that, I was particularly asking about Carol Brodies "color enhanced" gemstones. Meaning is there any specific process or can it be any thing?? Has she discussed this at all? ….Does she know? Does she care?……very sorry if my question was vague, but I trust the troups have learned some from Sean’s detailed explaination…. I wish it could be ancored at the top of this forum for future reference and discussion. I for one thoroughly enjoyed each and every word.
For me the big question is was it simply heated? (in my mind okay no biggie~ even mama earth cooks things up at times).
Was it Irradiation? Which is a bit harder for me to swallow… yes mama earth does do this too via the sun, but there are actually government regulations on this because the gem becomes radio active in not a healthy way and needs to discharge for a time before humans handle it in any way… and I don’t particularly trust any studies that have been done on this since I have not found any details of the study….my uneducated guess is that is common w/ the neon colors and super bright colors..??Tanzinite is comon here.
I personally do not want any irradiated stones, sometimes simply called "heat treated." (Which is different than simply heating it up to a very high temp)
Long timers here at HSN have you heard Carol discuss this at all?
Hi everyone, before trying to catch up, I wanted to Welcome Stella back! Sorry to hear about you father not doing so well, and sending best wishes your way.
Cindy, hope this is behind you soon, and that you are feeling better!
