    Did anyone watch the gem segment from 6-10 with Dawn and Jay last night? Did you drool over Dawn’s $77,000 aquamarine and diamond 18kt white gold necklace? It was a stunner! :drool: Someone did buy it later in the show, I noticed.

    The had soem gogeous aquamarine and blue zircons. I have a fondness for white zircons, as it’s sometimes used in jewelry from India (as a diamond substitute), and I have some of that jewelry. I also like the word “zircon”. It sounds like some evil sci-fi villain, or a planet!

    I always enjoy watching Dawn, and have just “discovered” Jay. He’s so much fun to listen to–I love his stories about buying gems. I ‘ve learned a bit from him.

    Me me! :wave: Ok, not really… not me! :rotflmao: :hahaha:

    I tried searching on the JTV site but could not find this $77k necklace! $77k, wow! I’m curious what the necklace looks like!

    :heart: Dawn! She’s a hoot!

    I love white zircon too! A lot of us on the forum do, in fact! I think white topaz does not bling enough and diamond accents are usually sub-par (14ktgirl Lori, I borrowed your description again :lol2:) quality that sadly diminishes the wow factor of what otherwise might be an awesome piece of jewelry :ladywink:

    Darn I missed it! Otherwise I would have snapped it right up! :mousegirl-giggle:

    I’ve missed a lot of shopping tv recently–it’s nice to be catching some now!

    They do tend to put those one only hugely delicious pieces–with prices to match–on the gemstone shows, usually on Dawn or Mandy. Lovely sparklies!

    I have a vision of a necklace dripping with huge aquamarine stones! Something fit for a Queen! :rofl:

    It’s really really nice to have you back, Lorrie!

    I can just see me wearing something like that to Aldi’s. :laugh1:

    The sad thing is pretties like that don’t usually see the light of day after purchase. They’re put in a vault and left there.

    Or they buy it for investment purposes.

    This reminds me of a co-worker, not that she had anything that expensive, but, in the mid-1970’s, her son lived in Japan, and he brought back a very-good quality pearl set. She was telling me about it, saying: “Of course, I’ll never wear it.” That’s so very sad. Yes, wear it carefully or on special occasions, but don’t stash it away for decades. Also, with pearls, that can be fatal for them. Pearls need hydration and occasional wearing (they crave some of your skin oil). And many vaults in banks are on the opposite wall of the HVAC system, which is not good for many stones, including pearls.

    When I think of this, I always remember that famous Life Magazine cover from the pre-Castro days in Cuba. Upper-class ladies would don all of their pearls, and take a dip in the ocean once or twice a year. This hydrated the pearls!

    I did not know that about pearls! Thanks Chrome Queen!

    I think, and hope, most of our girls here — posters and readers alike — do not “save” our jewelry! They are to be worn everyday and make us bling & smile!!! :clap: :kiss: Enjoy them, ladies!!!
