New Rarities are coming in
I just saw few that have me interested #388 878 Diamond/Sterling ” X ” bracelet there’s 5 choices of diamonds to choose from. I also love the Hand palm rose vermeil bracelet with white zircon # 412-517. The star earcuffs are also different with a mix of champagne/white diamond # 412-492. I usually like to see presentations of items that I purchase. I’m guessing that there be more pieces coming in soon so I’m excited to see what’s to come.:smileyvery-happy:
Maybe i should post this on a jewelry clearance thread? The Millie snakeskin ring arrived this afternoon. It is a unique piece and I am happy with except….that darn sizing thing. The size 7 fits tight, almost like a 6 and 1/2. It’s a keeper since it is sold out. I have nothing like it. It is weighty.
Does anyone have the locket?
Well gang, I have received two of my items so far and am really on the fence about both of them.
1 – the champagne diamond X ring (373-337) – ugh. Still love the design, and I don’t really notice (or haven’t worn long enough to notice) the dreaded rubbing issue. My problem (yes, I *am* a broken record) is the stones. The majority of them are a nice – if unspectacular – true champagne color, but there are several “off” stones scattered about that look simply awful. Very noticeably darker and detracting. I *know* you can’t expect unrealistic quality at the price point but still…is it too much to ask that the stones at least *match*??? Overall, the diamonds are nowhere near as sparkly (and well-matched) as the champagne stones in my ear cuffs (412-492.)
2 – the rose vermeil moonstone ring (410-983) – sigh. First, let me say that this ring is STUNNING! It screams summer to me, has a gorgeous undergallery which makes the fit pure perfection, the moonstones have beautiful color play, and it seems to be a substantial, well-made piece. The problem? I’m am about 95% certain that one of my moonstones is broken/severly cracked. (Drat those tricky feldspars! LOL.) I have louped it and louped it, rubbed it and rubbed it – and I really do think it is a structural issue, not just the usual striations/banding you get with moonstones. I cannot emphasize enough how much I. Love. This. Ring. However…with moonstones already on the soft side (6 on Mohs) I know that if I keep it, I will be scared to death to wear it; as I am certain that one wrong little bump will be the end of that iffy stone – and thus, the entire ring, as I’d never get a replacement stone to match.
So…I am on the fence about both of these. (I can hear Cindy screaming in my head, “If you don’t absolutely love it the second you see it, send it back!” LOL.) And, I probably will. At least the X ring. If they weren’t all on waitlist it would be easier. Ideally, I’d just swap the champagne one for a black one (no matching worries there, surely!) and call it good. And I’d simply exchange my moonstone for another one and hope for more stable stones. But…since everything is on waitlist, I really don’t know what to do about either of them!
My black spinel eternity band, item #412-491 arrived yesterday and it’s definitely a keeper…very sparkly! I’m going to wear it with some of the eternity bands from Joan Boyce’s recent TS. It’s going to be a great wedding ring set until I can fit back into my originals. So glad I ordered this one!
i received my x ring it is lovely and i am proud to wear it .Will there be more to come i hope so NETTIE 10:59am 3/23. 2015
i’ve had the white diamond x since it first arrived. i seem to recall it feeling different. meaning i was conscious of it on, unlike normal rings which i put on and forget. it was not long that it became normal and that different feeling went away. and yes i do wear them bigger because i hate the flesh bump out. all this may or may not be applicable to all.
also, had a similar reaction when i started wearing small bands on my upper fingers. now i barely know they are there.
my yellow TS has yet to ship.
I received the X ring in black but it’s a little big. But I may keep because in summer my fingers swell. I’m still waiting on the champagne X ring. But my real excitement is in waiting for the Ganesh pyrite necklace and other items I ordered which should be delivered in the next few days. :smileyvery-happy:
My canary X necklace has a very different colored stone right in the middle that detracts from everything…your eyes go straight to that dull, darker stone so it’s going back. The X canary earrings are beautiful but one earring color is absolutely stunning and the other is lifeless and more champagney. Don’t they check this stuff??????????
Yellow diamond X ring GORGEOUS! :smileyhappy:
White diamond X ring…GORGEOUS!!!! :smileyhappy:
White Zirc Eternity ring…TOO BIG!! HUGE! Going back :smileysad:
That’s all I got today…
And the Heidi White Rose ring in the right size. Gorgeous!
But didnt’ get the rest… tomorrow.
I checked the tracking on all mine and got a messege I never saw before from UPS:
"we will be in your area and will be delivering and not SurePost"…and it says OUT FOR DELIVERY!!!!
So I am pacing the floor…waiting!!! Yippee!!
Was so excited to receive my 44′ tourmaline and pearl necklace! It’s already boxed to return to HSN because it arrived broken in a spot that I can’t easily fix. This is really a lovely necklace but it’s sold out and I can’t replace it. Be aware that it’s flimsy for an expensive piece. There’s a difference between delicate and flimsy.
Surprisingly, my other Rarities boxes arrived last night but I was not able to open them….I almost got up in the middle of the night to look but decided to wait until sunlight was available. So I will be back with some initial observations in a few minutes!
all but the ts tracks as to be delivered tomorrow! i’m gonna be sittin down when i open the box!
Snow, I’ll keep what you said in mind when the rings get here. The yellow has shipped but the white hasn’t…go figure?
