Re: Need Help Figuring Out What Hundreds of Items Are!

MinaLoves2shop. For the most part Jewelry Queen says she agrees with Mpompadour. The following is her input. The top bracelet is peridot. Peridot is currently very popular and has seen a rise in price. Retail the bracelet is worth about $375. She suggests asking $189.99 for it. The second one also d...

Re: Help Moderator

Dragonfly. You guys are keeping my sister quite busy. I guess it is good she has interests. She says AAA or AA DOES have to do with how many inclusions are in the stone and NOT whether it is fissure filled. AAA accounts for about one third of all rubies used in jewelry and covers the range from mode...

Re: Cleaning jewelry marked 14K with copper cleaner

Sea Hag. I posed this question to Jewelry Queen and she says that anything less than 24kt gold can tarnish. 18kt 14kt and 10kt gold can tarnish because the alloys they use to strengthen it makes also makes it vulnerable to tarnishing. In yellow gold the most frequently used alloy is copper as it als...

Re: Fragrances

My sister makes her own scented lotions. She makes almost all of the essential oils she uses in them. I was shocked when she told me once it takes six pounds of lavender flowers to make once ounce of good lavender oil. Not the weak stuff sold many places but the good stuff. A friend of hers owns a l...

Re: LuLu--Where are you at?

LuLu. Not a problem at all. I got chewed a little bit by my sis for misspelling Turkizite. Sorry. I know zip about gemstones. And I mean zip. I don't shop here and don't watch the channel on TV so I rarely have much to contribute. It is fun reading though and if I can be of any help I am more than h...

LuLu--Where are you at?

LuLu. RS and Jewelry Queen have been in contact and RS just remembered you asked about her turizite ring. I'm supposed to tell you she probably will not get until September. When she does she will give me a review to pass on. Maybe even a picture if I can get my computer to cooperate. I shall try my...

Re: JQ's Picks

Gypsy. This race was the Belmont Stakes. The previous was the Preakness and of course before that the Kentucky Derby. I know this because my sister recorded all three races and watched them live and then watched them again multiple times. And I mean multiple times. And she screamed and danced around...

Re: JQ's Picks

AD. 40 minutes ago. Essential Quality came in first as predicted. Hot Rod Charlie came in second instead of third. Known Agenda was fourth I think.

JQ's Picks

JQ says she is not near as sure on this races as the other two legs of the Triple Crown but here goes. Essential Quality, Rock Your World, Hot Rod Charlie and Known Agenda. Known would have been higher up her pick if his jockey had not been hurt last week. Burbonic is worth $5 on the nose. Good luck...
