Hi all! I just wanted to share some fun bling photos from a recent trip to Joe Escobar Diamonds in Campbell CA. Gypsy and I met there and spent over 2 hours going through almost every piece they have. I have wanted to go in and browse for years and it did not disappoint! Gypsy had told me that the staff is wonderful and she was not kidding. Her regular guy wasn't there and she simply told the SA that we wanted to browse and try on A LOT and the SA was so kind, accommodating, enthusiastic and just plain great! She took out way more than we asked which was great because both Gypsy and I tried on things (and liked things) we never would have thought.

Warning: Photo overload!

I had so much fun with you yesterday!!

You are going to die laughing. (Or shoot me). But that band looks SMALL in the photos to me.

I'm a PITA. It looked perfect in real life though, which is how I'll be wearing it. It's probably because it's associating with all the super large bling we tried on in this thread. In comparison it looks so modest.


I ADORE that halo on you. And that oval. OMG. You can totally rock that.

The Sholdt settings are so pretty. And those Simon G's are just WOW.

Thanks so much for taking AND posting the pictures.

I really want that pendant. SO MUCH.

I've got to stop biting my nails.

Me too.....SO much fun yesterday!!

LOL about the band looking small!! It does look "smaller" than in real life, so I don't think you're imagining things. But in real life it was perfect. Not too over the top, look at me, but still very blingy. Perfect for everyday.

Like I said, things I never would've thought....Love the oval and halo!

I really, really, really want you to have that pendant......It is STUNNING in every way and it looked beautiful on you. Wish we would've taken photos of the paraiba halo necklace and some others. There was so much. We definitely need to go back!

You are cracking me up with your nails!

That's the one I want. It's a tsavorite pendant. If you get it I call dibs if you ever sell it. :$$):

Yeah, I'm kicking myself we didn't start taking pictures until we left the colored stones. Those pink and red stones looked so amazing on you!! And that Paraiba. OMG. Who would have thought!

We will go back, definitely.

We didn't get a picture of "your" band either. Next time we'll both take pictures. I'll use the ipad camera. Which I should have remembered to use yesterday.

I agree on the 25 pointers. In person it's perfect. But I LMAO when I saw the pictures and thought "Hmm... I could go bigger."

FYI to anyone interested: our SA's name was Eeva and she was awesome. I usually se Erik but he was on vacation. It was fun having a third female to gush with.

WOW!!!! And I thought I had a fun couple of days with my girlfriends at Nordstroms! Please don't apologize for the large pictures. I wish you had posted more. The pendant and oval ring are to die for. Do either of you remember how large the oval was? I'm glad you both had a very fun day.

I agree - love this necklace. Do you have any details on it? I was wondering the same thing - Tsavorite, emerald or tourmaline?

Love all the photos!! I had the opportunity to visit Joe Escobar last October and it was wonderful. I had the best sales lady who took me all around the store and took out every single thing I wanted to see, even after I told her I didn't have any plans to purchase anything that day.
Now that, is customer service. I loved almost everything they had in the store as it looks like you both did too!

Isn't that just the BEST store! I am truly a fan. I hope one of you scoops up that tsavorite pendant. It is beautiful!
