There is no sin commmitted when you imagine yourself trying on a pair of $100,000 diamond earrings. This blog is dedicated to women who indulge (or want to indulge) themselves with all things expensive-- jewellery, jewellery, and more jewellery! No sin, ladies. This is a guiltless read-- that much I promise. Ending up with an expensive purchase (astronomical proportions)? Now that's not my fault :)

Interesting eBay find + A Local Joallerie Offering

I'm honestly not one to recommend making a jewellery purchase on the internet, much more on eBay, what with all the con artists waiting to pounce on innocent people with purchasing power. But if these things I am posting are indeed what the items look like in reality, then hey, what's a little gamble (especially if money is no object). Besides, all one has to do is make sure that the seller has plenty good feedback and that there is a "physical" address and phone number with which they can call. Also, email one of their past clients at random and ask about their experience (be sure you email a "buyer" who has plenty feedback as well). Better yet, check with the Better Business Bureau. If they have no pending cases, then you might just have gotten yourself a good seller.

Seller paseoauction has this lovely Bib Style Edwardian necklace with 6 carats total weight of diamonds and a 3 carat emerald pendant drop. I wish though, that the emerald was a polished (but unfaceted) briolette rather than a faceted teardrop. Nevertheless, this is such a stunning piece for
US$ 8,367.00

ATTENTION JEWELLERY AFFICIONADOS IN MANILA: I've just been informed that Jul B. Dizon Jewellery Salon at Edsa Shangrila Hotel (Mandaluyong) is carrying a 5ct ea. Emerald cut diamond stud earrings (total carat weight 10.52!) at the cost of Php 3,200,000 (approx US$62,500) *I'm sure it's still negotiable. Both stones have been identified as having K color.

Jul B. Dizon Jewellery Salon also has a 1.54 ct Cushion shaped old mine brilliant cut diamond with GIA certification-- G color, VS2 clarity. If you know someone who is planning to propose to his girlfriend, let him know of this stone. It's not often that ladies here in Manila get proposed to with a cushion old miner diamond :)
