Thanks again for the welcome! I will get my little collection together on Wed when I am off and post some photos! I feel like I am coming down with the flu tonight ImageImageImage. Its good to see other gold lovers as it seems all I read on the other threads is about rhodium plating and platinum! The is nothing as rich and buttery as GOLD! ImageImageImage BTW, I love to read also and I thoroughly enjoyed the NINETEEN pages of information! Am I right to assume most of us here are about 50?

I won't speak for the others (I know Harriet is a mere babe), but I shall never see 50 again!  Even my baby cousin is now, I believe, 52 ;-). I am wrong.  She is about to turn 52 at the end of this month!  She is the youngest amongst us, a group of five.

Hi folks!  I haven''t been able to get through the entire thread here, but I thought I would contribute my favorite Alex Sepkus pieces.  I''m starting to get a ''thing'' for yellow gold again; and my favorite pieces are artisan in look rather than ''expected'' pieces. 

Let''s see if I''ve got the right sizes on these photos:

coati was looking for a 24K band for her mother's 60th birthday.  I came across this site on Etsy.  The owner makes custom wedding bands in 24K gold and they are very lovely indeed! (There are other gold pieces on the site including some gorgeous, yellow, handmade, 18K wedding bands!  There are also pieces in white gold, platinum, and sterling silver.  It is very eclectic.)  I thought that some of you might want to take a peak!

Well...I almost said that we took a vote and decided to make an exception for you, packrat, but sometimes my jokes get me into trouble on Pricescope ;-).  Of course we want you!  I liked yellow gold all my life, even as a young girl and a teenager.  I suspect that many girls growing up now, will, too since it is going to be so fashionable.  So there is no reason why very young women shouldn't/wouldn't be attracted to this thread if they have the time.  They often have more pressing matters on their minds, however, like engagment rings; weddings; etcetera.  The true Pricescopers hang around here after they are married and some discuss houses and babies and some may find threads about other pieces of jewelry that they like.  It is among those that I would expect to find young women interested in this thread.

BTW, I really should say that some of our current active posters are women in their 20's or 30's.

Definitely Buccellati!!! The prices may go up.  The styles may change.  There will always be spinels!!!  I am going to die of envy if you get a Buccellati piece!

No! I''d rather have you alive! Mind you, the Honolulu is pretty much Buccellati''s entry-level collection. You''re right about gold going up, but those Mahenges won''t last forever. Alright, high class problem.

Oh happy problem!  "Finite" might always be an issue, but is there a compromise?  Small "piece" of both?Image

I went looking for a picture of a piece of jewelry from the Honolulu Collection by Buccellati to post so that people could see the jewelry with which Harriet is in love.  As is not ununusual for me when I enter the name, "Buccellati" into a search engine, I found something which distracted me, however.  This ring is for sale on eBay for $8,500.00 (which I cannot afford).  It would fit me, too!  I would like to know if anyone knows the seller and if he is reputable.  The eBay feedback certainly looks good!

Now if this was in Bill Pearlman''s store, I would be able to find a creative way ti finance it!  How come Bill doesn''t have this one?

These are the long pendant earrings from the Buccellati Honolulu Collection.  They should give you an idea of the jewelry at which Harriet has been looking, although I think we can certainly scare up pictures of more pieces from the collection if we try!

I bought myself some long (very short in relation to these) 14K yellow gold earrings inexpensively last week as a birthday present for myself.  I will try to photograph them and get a picture of them into this thread!

This is a very bad picture-but at least an ear shot-of my birthday earrings (well, one of them).  My daughter had said she would take a picture, but she wasn''t feeling well, so I had to take this in the bathroom mirror.  That black circle in my face is the lens from the video camera :-).  I do not think I ever wore earrings as "flighty" as this before.  I am not sure my husband approved.  He made what seemed to be a somewhat negative comment over lunch today, while looking at me askance.  I am 58.  Maybe they are inappropriate ;-). On the other hand, maybe my family just isn''t used to anything but tiny, conservative jewelry-and usually not even that-on me!
