Agree. Just because someone has money doesn’t mean they should over pay. But I guess one’s mileage varies and yada yada yada. Haha sorry I couldn’t resist. @YadaYadaYada I love your screen name but it makes it harder to use in other convo lol. :)


I’d rather spend wisely and use extra discretionary funds to support worthy causes. ❤

yes, this simple charm is quite pricey. im wondering for that price if it is hand forged rather than cast ...

That thing is just punched out of 18k sheet. And it is pretty small, too.
I am an amateur silversmith, and I could make one of those in an hour. I can get 18k sheet at the local supply shop. And mine would be considered hand forged.
Notice that they don't give you gram weight or measurements, either.
At today's gold price, I am guessing this heart contains about $60 worth of 18k.

oh wow, that's good to know. just punched out of 18k sheet huh... now that you mention it, the edges don't appear nicely finished. material at $60 retailing at $770:roll: no dimensions or specifics, otherwise savvy people will be able to "do the math" ...thank you for the insight!

Great find @PeterPan681 !!

That second pic in the product page is just so hideous.... With that kind of margin margin on the necklace they should at least bei able to hire hire a photographer and not rely on Selfies!!
Hahaha, re selfies vs professional photography. I've noticed a ton of companies using selfies now on their sites and campaigns. Not sure if it's just the aesthetic now, influenced by influencer culture, or what.

When I first saw this thread I figured the designer was indeed Irene Neuwirth because that's one Kamala has worn before, but I didn't go so far as to search for it on the IN site. Glad someone else did and confirmed my assumption!

The prices are so crazy. Is the designer well known? I mean, I guess she can command these prices???
she's fairly well known. but probably not in the global sense like the premier jewelry designers. when barneys new york was around she was featured in the fine jewelry department. she is also featured in the precious jewels salon at neiman marcus. i don't know if her jewelry is there anymore as neiman marcus is in bankruptcy.

Well, that’s interesting, maybe she did buy it!
Yes, maybe. From past experience most politicians are/get wealthy on their own. Their political careers are a stepping stone allowing them to make so much money from other deals. Such as book deals, speaking engagements etc. As an example, Barack Obama is quite wealthy. And here you can see how he made his money.

i see your point. and i agree:)

the second image was in their instagram feed. this type of candid aesthetic is how merchants sell on insta instead of a more polished, finished look.

I kind of don’t mind Obama making some cash now, but I do think politicians who are in office should represent the “little people” and at least act a bit modest!
