IS JAI THE ONLY JEWELER LEFT?

Other than a few appearances from Danny and Carolyn Pollack, is Jai the only designer jewelry left on Q? Many of the ones I remember have left. Even PTR has gone back to just skincare.

I don't know but I don't particularly like the jewelry or Scott Grimes.  I find him to be kind of silly.

@Kachina624   I don't mind him, but am tiring of what seems to be slim pickins' in the jewelry department. His designs are getting repetitious. You can really only wear one piece at a time without looking like a magazine ad.

I like the jewelry, but prices have sure gone up.  I looked at a few things today, that would have been over $300 with tax and shipping

@Shanus: No, Jai is not the only one. Type: JEWELRY in search box. There are still some of the same vendors with the Q.

I bought a couple JAI pieces today.  My sister gave me a beatiful piece after our beloved crossed introducing me to the line.  I love it.

Not a fan of oxidation.  I love very white silver (Ultra Fine)  Yes his jewelry does tend to be repetitious.  I didn't buy anything today.  I need my money for food, toilet paper and sanitizers.  Tomorrow I'll tackle the supermarket. 

 

Incidently, he does look familiar.  I think I mght have seen him on Gem Shopping Network.  Dallas Prince shows up there armed to the teeth in 18K, diamonds and platinum, with some gems thrown in.  I think he does too.  He must have a gold and diamond/gem line. No silver anywhere when he's on that show.

I own several pieces of Jai, but am not much of a fan of the line, overall. It's possible I could add another piece or two down the road, but there's nothing I can't live without. I do think the line is overpriced for silver, am sure he's a nice guy, but am not fond of the vendor, and to tell the truth vastly preferred the predecessor line, Angela by John Hardy, to anything I've seen offered by Jai.

@stevieb   I purchased one cuff during his first show. To me one is enough. I can stack with my others of different styles. I like when jewelry looks collected over time...not purchased from one designer. I found that out many years ago with Yurman. Purchased and was gifted many pieces, but could only wear one at a time. I've since given them to DD, DIL and saved the rest for the 2 granddaughters.

Not a fan of the Jai line or the vendor at all.  My favorite was Hagit Gorali, and she's never on any more.
