Just beautiful!!! All your gorgeous rings - that delicate rose gold band looks so pretty with the larger rings and that opal ring is out of this world! Thanks for sharing! And last but not least I love your wide eyed pretty kitty cat in your profile pic :)

I have a question please to all those who live in the States... has anyone bought from Mene jewellers ... I’m really keen to give it a try and get some charms as all their jewelry is 24k with certification their site says and they ship intl by fedex, please share any thoughts or experiences thanks!

OK, I haven't been in here for a while, but I see that I should visit more often.

I've had these for a while now, and I'm sure I posted these elsewhere, but they really belong here, so here they will go for posterity. ;)) This is my set of black opals, all in 22K, again with the granulation I love. :))

Thank you! And yes, they are. And you can't see it in the pic, but the clasp on the pendant is an intricate handmade bit of work with moving parts and lots of wirework, since it opens to become a pearl-enhancer.

Sadly, the woman who actually executes that high-karat work, is retiring. There aren't there many jewelers in the US who can do that sort of work. I only know of a couple, but no more than that. So I feel very fortunate to have some of her work.

My first high carat solid gold piece, a 22k yellow gold pendant with alexandrite cat's eye and a Fijian keshi pearl. I am really happy with how that turned out!
So hard to photograph the green appearance of the gemstone but so much fun to watch. And in diffuse lights where the stone does not look its best, the pearl really shines and shows of all the colours, they really complement each other.

What kind of necklace would you put it on? I still need to get one of the right length - and was thinking rolo/belcher oxidised silver maybe?
I feel delicate modern times gold would look odd with the unearthen-handmade-ancient look of this.

Well, then you should get one! I almost got the satin one I just mentioned from dianafinejewels on EBay, where I could have gotten one for a fraction of the cost of the one I am having made on Etsy. (I believe that my hammered gold ring was from one of the eBay vendors in Turkey.) The only reason I did not was that while I was corresponding with dianafinejewels I was not sure that they understood English well enough to give me the correct size. I probably underestimated them; after all a ring size isn't that hard to understand, but I was worried. (I had never used the relatively new dianafinejewels before.) I might have gotten the hammered ring from Atlantis (Turkish vendor selling on eBay) or maybe it's a Gurhan one I got from minata.

The rings pictured below are from dianafinejewels and are sold on eBay.

Does anyone know what happened to Dianafinejewels on Ebay? Any recommendations for other Ebay vendors that carry high-carat pieces?

HI:

Between errands and appointments, I visited an old haunt for gorgeous art and jewellery. I fell in love (again) with Gurhan and Armenta. I could have bought it ALL! This reminds me, I must get a pair of 22 or 24K gold hoops. I MUST!

cheers--Sharon

Seeing all these lovelies inspired me to look at this 18k yellow gold chain. Not up to the high standards of other posters but had a really lovely bright yellow tone. I normally wear white gold/platinum but something about this caught my eye. Wondering if anyone might have seen a similar design. Would love to find out more about its origin or even the maker. It is stamped 750 and 161 on the clasp. There was another mark but very hard to decipher. Thanks in advance

I'm so glad you shared this post. Beautiful jewelry. I had to Google Si Dian Jin as I became curious to learn more about jewelry customs. That was a fun hour of exploration.

Two fabulous 22k gold chains from a Turkish jeweller; quite chunky and not something I thought I would have selected but I felt different when I wore them, I’ve never seen these kind of chains in 22k as they’re usually Italian made 18k
