    PSers, in contrast to my thread about Your First "Big"/"Real" Jewelry Purchase, I thought I'd start one about Your Latest Jewelry Purchases/Things You're Considering.

    I have a bit of a dilemma right now on what I'm considering next.... I'm considering a bracelet, but don't wear them often. But there is a particular type I would really like to add to my collection...

    I just purchased this parcel of Burma spinel 1.5mm stones. Maybe I can make a floral band? :confused: I can also halo an existing stone. :think:

    Not only are these beautiful with so many options for blingy creations, but I love how neat and orderly they are in this pic. :geek2:

    They are just so yummy. I’m thinking a full eternity ring perhaps...... Oh my! They just look so happy and fun!

    I caved this week and bought this art deco shield pendant with little oecs and sapphire in 20k wg. ( But, as always, I'll have to spend more money to replace the bale so it fits on the chain I want to wear it on. ...:roll)

    I am looking to buy a multigem item and have been eyeing this one from jane taylor jewelry...it's so pretty, but so pricey for semi-precious. I need someone to talk me out of it! (but it's so pretty :shifty:)

    Er, um..I'm guilty. I have like 6 rings on their way from JBG (to see what looks good on my fat fingers). Stay tuned.

    I keep looking at these, but they are more than I want to spend. But antique dormeuse earrings are not the easiest to find. I even looked on eBay. Not many. This pair is really pretty.

    I just got a Love bracelet. I haven’t had anything to wear on my arms in a while, so It filled a space in my jewelry needs.

    What a coincidence, I have this same pair saved to my favorites! Did you see the video posted to the dealer’s IG? They’re quite beautiful. I would’ve pulled the trigger, but like you I also didn’t want to spend that much.

    I just hit "buy it now" on this pre-owned 18k YG and diamond bracelet from eBay:

    Having a bracelet (bangle) made as we speak! Should arrive before Mothers Day. Purchased a beautiful opal from @jordybass and taking my time to determine just how I want to have it set. That's all for now folks!

    Yes! They are really pretty! It's getting harder to find this style for me at least.

    I wish they were about $600 to $800 less. It would still feel like a bit too much, but I could rationalize it due to the original box and hallmarks.

    She had another pair recently that were larger center stones and I don't know if they sold or if they just aren't posted yet for sale, but those were really lovely too. No doubt more expensive though. :lol:

    Hah, thanks. You know it's bad when Amex profusely thanks you for calling ahead to warn them that, no, my 2 Amexes weren't stolen...and that, in fact, several very big charges were about to come thru :loopy:

    Good thing I'm not buying a small sedan or a boat this week :lol:

    Jane Taylor stuff is pricey.

    The brand the Last Line has some rainbow rings that are smaller, so more stackers, but more budget friendly.

    Do you like this at all? I found it on Etsy. It's a similar feel and half the price of the Jane Taylor.

    FBE48F92-7717-4B54-BDBE-D4CC08D31826.jpeg I’m trying to buy a diamond brooch that I can use to make a bracelet.
    I didn’t read the length of a diamond bracelet I bought (pre loved, no return) and it’s too small for my wrist. So I’m wanting to add length by putting a diamond brooch or similar into the centre BUT I don’t want to spend more than $500!
    Still looking.

    847292F7-55A8-4086-8A67-42927AA54B11.jpeg And I have to get this conversion done too. It’s a rose gold watch band I bought years ago for a watch that I decided not to “marry” it too. I sold the watch and kept the bracelet because solid gold watch bracelets in rose gold are rare. 8 years later and still no rose gold watch head has grabbed my attention.
    Enter a Victorian rose gold brooch from my mothers safe and I want to do a bracelet.
    Gawd, me and bracelets, I need an intervention!

    Hrm. @Nikki1415 is selling a similar pair. I thought those were hers for a second.

    I also got this from her recently. :whistle: I am waiting happily for it.

    Thank you! Yeah I saw that one on Etsy as well. I kind of wanted it to be different stones and this one is all sapphires with Heat and BE treatment.

    Jane Taylor is always pricey even though their stuff is super nice.

    Another (much) more affordable alternative I am eyeing..
