On 7/29/2014 dperry said: Ennui, I pulled the trigger and got the necklace! I checked other places online and it is the best price anywhere--period. Oh, I have to be good for the whole month of August! Butting in here to say that piece has been in and out of my cart too! I adore the tin cup I purchased earlier during the sale...haven't taken it off (well except to sleep and go to the beach)...I love the look of a tin cup. So simple but so complex! The pearls look lovely on that one, so please post a real world shot when you receive it! Continue Reading

On 7/29/2014 dperry said: I was at my library book club last night when I got to talking with a lady who owns a pawn broker store here in town. She saw that I was wearing pearls and she said to me that "I can't sell pearls at the shop for any price--no one wants pearls anymore you can't give them away. They are not stylish." I responded that they are very popular with me. What do you think of her statement? If they were not popular why would the rich and famous and royalty wear them? I want to know where her pawn shop is...because I always love to look for a deal on pearls!! Continue Reading

 

Re: JR quartz and crystal stones...

Then Swarovski Crystal should take the "crystal" out of their name...they are man made as well, and although their mixture of elements is proprietary, I would venture to guess they are of similar components to other diamond simulants. I don't mean to upset folks, but a crystal is a structure that elements can take...water even forms crystals...it's called ice. A crystal can be created or can occur naturally. I think JR is using the term correctly, as is Swarovski. They are selling clear and colored created crystals. I don't think anyone is being deceived by their descriptions...JR is very...

CZ is a crystal, just the same as a lab created sapphire is a crystal. By the way, a diamond is also a crystal. Crystals can either occur naturally or be created in the lab. Continue Reading

Why not? A cz is a crystal that has been grown in a lab. Continue Reading

FYI, when I was at the Fossil Outlet last week, the sales associate told me they are "dropping" their designer lines from the outlet. Not if that was specific to that store or all outlets. Continue Reading

This is true for almost all colored gemstones. A reputable gemstone seller will provide a certificate from the AGL -- in Europe it might be from the GRS or AGIS. The certificate will verify what the buyer is getting. It is not an appraisal -- it talks about whether or not the stone is synthetic or natural, its size, where it came from if it can be determined and the c... Continue Reading

I didn't end up getting this piece, but am curious...from the video the quality seems to be nice, however, you'd really have to see it in person. It doesn't seem to have the overtones of the PP soufflés so I suspect they may have been bleached? For the price of it, under $100 with chain, it certainly is a sweet necklace. Continue Reading
