Hi everyone,

has anyone bought from Gemstones & Gold Treasures (Leslie)? Any reviews of the interactions and prices?

She has pretty eternities, but I’m a little hesitant to buy $$ goods on Instagram. I’ve only had small value purchases from Instagram so far!

Oops maybe this would be more appropriate for antique and vintage sub forum. Flagging it to have it moved!

@Elise_k Yes, that's her. She's very easy to work with and her stuff is beautiful and her prices are better than most! I'm sure if you bought and needed to return she would work with you. (Always good to check on return policies before purchase though). Two items I picked up in person, some earrings I bought she over nighted via Fed Ex- well packaged. I would definetly recommend her as trustworthy. Mention Christy sent you :)

I just purchased three bands from her but don't have them yet. She offers a return policy (it's a pretty quick one; 3 business days from receipt to return, no questions asked) and has been super responsive. But I don't have the goods in my hand yet to give you a full report. :)

I have bought a ring from her and currently making payments on a pair of earrings! I have nothing but good things to say. She shipped via fedex, insured, with tracking number. The ring looked exactly as it did in pictures and videos! She is so sweet and was helpful when I was trying to decide what to purchase. I definitely recommend!

Is it pretty standard that instagram sellers don't post prices? I clicked through some of her posts and only saw pricing on one. I don't use instagram much but it always makes me hesitant because I don't want to waste anyone's time if it's more than what I'm looking to spend at the moment.

I've noticed that with Instagram, too. It's just too much pressure for me to try and figure out pricing, what's been sold already, which posts are just to "show off the bling," etc. I need time to marinate on things!

I actually asked Leslie about this (our first meeting turned in to a 2 hour lunch, lol). She said she prefers to be contacted to establish rapport. She made a good point: that just listing a price does nothing to start communication. She said she can get to know her customer and find out what they are looking for. And that she may have other items of interest available.
But I too sometimes get frustrated, especially if I have never bought from someone before. I'm much more willing now to DM with questions then I used to. I figure if they didn't want to be bothered with DMs they'd just list a price.

That's a good point. I hadn't considered that perspective. Ah well. It's probably a good thing that there's a few more steps involved before I buy something :lol:

I have bought from her too. She is justly lovely. @CHRISTY-DANIELLE turned me on to her and her prices are quite good. I got a marquis band for much less than I had seen elsewhere. The engraving is lovely and she shipped it super fast. She does zelle and venmo and let me split payments over two days so I wouldn't run into minimums. I have my eye on another band already.

She also looks out for you, I inquired about a pair of earrings that were out of my range and she showed me the next time she had something for a bit less. They got snapped up but I really appreciate that in a vendor. She is also super responsive which is wonderful.

I'm looking to get my own sapphire band. May I ask what mm are the bands in your stack?

The middle emerald band is 4mm and the one with diamonds and emeralds on top is 3mm. I never got the size of the smallest one but would guess 2.5 or 2.75 based on the others?

I love sapphires too and if emeralds weren't my birthstone, they'd be my second pick. Can't wait to see what you find!

Thanks for the info! I'll definitely be back with pics if and when I find my stack.
