Re: They did it again! Selling masks!

No one knows who is buying these masks. It could be health-care workers themselves as well as their families buying them to donate. At least some people will be getting some kind of protection.

Instead of raising a stink about a product being available, why don't y'all buy some and donate them?

Re: I’ve been busy.l,

I'm on the 'likes' list for the colljoe post. Wanna know why? Because of nonsense like this. First there was the manufactured fit about censoring thrown by your favorite 'scientist' (which anyone could see right through) and then the endless posts about over 'yonder'. Then the gossiping about forum ...

Re: Pink diamonds on Sunday

Unless Santa set up a work shop on the outskirts of Tucson, there is no way this stuff was just bought. That is what is so funny about these 'live at Tucson' shows - whether it is SLC or ShopHQ. Just a bunch of blarney.

Re: Russian Charoite

This was supposed to air 4 months ago. Wound up buying a few pieces from JTV set in rose gold over sterling and it is really stunning. Also have a pendant set in sterling and the rose gold plating wins out. It really enhances the purple of the charoite.

Re: Return and Refund

Well, that's interesting. What if there was a dishonest person working in returns and claimed the package was never received? Then we would have to file a claim with the post office? Many years ago, it was said that another Jewelry channel had a problem in their returns dept with an employee being l...

Re: Tucson Gem Show

It looks like it's the same stuff as last year. The California black jade is nephrite - not the more valuable jadeite.

Return and Refund

On January 22nd, I returned a ring. Hadn't heard anything so checked my tracking # on USPS website Feb 8th. It indicated the item has not been scanned as delivered. On Feb 9th, USPS sent me a notice that there was a 'delivery exception' (?). Later in the day, SLC emailed me that a full price refund ...

Re: Grandidierite and Kat Florence

Because I have no taste, I actually prefer the lighter seafoam color grandidierite. To me it has a velvety appearance rather than a hard luster.

Re: Grandidierite and Kat Florence

@Gem Lover That is the only time I have ordered items from that Don out of Africa and I kept nothing of his. And yes, was either bait and switch, or only other thing I can imagine is if the cold weather affected the opals, idk, but SOMETHING wasn't right. I have a ring from Cirari that comes on the...

Grandidierite and Kat Florence

Was watching GSN yesterday and they had a slew of Kat's pieces. Kat works exclusively with D-flawless diamonds which have become so hard to find that she is now only designing one-of-a-kinds. There was a grandidierite ring in the 4+ ct range set in 18K with her D-flawless diamonds. You know that sto...
