Re: Poor packaging

I've never had an issue with packaging. Sure, some packages are not perfect but I don't mind. My problem is that I have too many of these little and bigger boxes, and pouches so I don't know what to do with them. They are too pretty to throw them away. If I order 2 pairs of earrings, 3 rings and a m...

Re: Velvet look pouches

The blue bags were nice and the black are nice as well. I am glad that I have a few of them.

Re: Auto Bidding Or lack of

Just by accident, I saw my name biding on items I even wasn't interested in. So, something is wrong.

Re: Stainless steel jewelry

.. I'm a fan of stainless steel jewelry too. I do, however, get out my jewelry tools out and tighten the prongs and or file them down a bit so they don't catch and I lose the stone(s). I do the same. But I've lost probably $100 because no tightening was enough. Now, I inspect very carefully every p...

Re: Rhodium Or Platinum Over Sterling

I really don't have preferences. If silver is plated with rhodium or with platinum it is okey with me. I don't like silver plated with gold, because the colors are different and plating won't last for a long time. By the way, rhodium is the most expensive precious metal. Much, much, much more expens...

Yes, any of the overlay tarnishes. I have several anti-tarnish jewelry boxes and everything I buy goes in them now. I had some really ugly pieces of jewelry that were a pain to clean until I bought those boxes.
Do you mean Prestige boxes from HSN?

Re: Rhodium Or Platinum Over Sterling

:? Is it just me or has any one else noticed that some of the jewelry that is Rhodium or Platinum over sterling tarnishes fast? [...] Maybe, the problem is the "tarnish free" box, because you think it is tarnish free, but it is not. I bought a jewelry box from SLC. They didn't claim that it was tar...

Re: FYI Coronavirus Info

Derby I just saw those statistics. Wonder why our death rate per cases is so much higher than most? Death rate per cases in China is 3.7% (total cases 80,430, deaths 3,013), in USA is 7% (total cases 159, deaths 11) and in Philippines 33% (total cases 3, deaths 1). If we would have a country with 1...

Re: Karis jewelry quality

Karis has a nice designed and well made pieces of jewelry...but eventually the brass will show. So, I buy Karis pendant enhancers for my own use but I will never ever give them as gifts or sell them to someone else. There is no way that sooner or latter yellow brass plated with silvery platinum will...
