Re: Auctions

Good morning, We do actively monitor overbidding, and when users regularly do not pay for won bids. Per our terms of service, users can be suspended if they regularly do not pay for their auction wins, especially in cases of overbidding. I hope this clears things up! [/quote] Yesterday it was Bev.

Re: Auctions

it happens often with the Swarovski items where someone bids on almost every Swarovski item at $39 or $49 per item though the actually selling price is $9.99 or less. Like you said either the bidder isn’t aware of the actually selling price and thinks the estimated retail price is the selling price,...

Re: ESPIRITO SANTO AQUAMARINE Question

Sea Hag, the GIA says the most valuable colors are dark blue, which in their picture resembles Swiss blue topaz, to slightly greenish blue, which could resemble a lighter London blue topaz like you described. The GIA says the more pure and intense the blue color is the more valuable it is.

Re: Sajen silver

I wish I wasn’t on a tight budget right now. I really liked some of the larimar pieces.

Re: People on Auctions. What is something that you won that was/is usually expensive on auctions? How much did you win i

Earlier this year in the wee hours of the morning I won a Tahitian pearl ring that sold for for $59.99 or $69.99 for $2.00. Also a beautiful larimar * ring that sold for $59.99 for $10.

Re: ESPIRITO SANTO AQUAMARINE Question

The statement you typed is from SLC’s education center. I didn’t take it to mean that Queen Elizabeth’s stones came from the Espírito Santo mine but I can see how it could be misleading. I can find nothing on the internet that says specifically which mine in Brazil her stones came from. But I must s...

Re: Super cheesy face masks!

I felt the same way - cheated. These sponge masks are similar to the Japanese “Pitta” masks. The few tests done in these sponge masks show they have 0 - yes, zero - protection against covid sized particles. In Shop LC’s defense, I never heard the hosts say they would protect against covid19. I thoug...

Thank you Kat. If you saw my reply to Tothemoon. I used a plastic ring size adjuster and wrapped it around the bottom of the bangle. It seems to counter balance the heavy top of the bangle. I have another one that I have to try it on.
I’m glad the ring sizers worked for you!

Re: bangle bracelet too big

Wendella, I too have a few metal bangles that are to large. I don’t know if this will work for you but I took a piece of 16 or 18 gauge jewelry making wire that I purchased from a craft store and twisted it on each end of the bangle to create a bar that runs accords the back of the bangle from the i...
