Sold: Blue Topaz and Garnet Earrings

I have no idea why these pictures are so small, LOL! Anyway I had two sales to the same customer, Yay! She bought the red garnet earrings, and then requested a blue topaz pair as well. I must tell you the Swiss Blue Topaz is the most beautiful and affordable blue gemstone you could every buy. It is just stunning. I have actually sold several pairs of the Swiss Blue Topaz earrings, and this was the last matched pair of gems I had. I definitely need to get more. I love them! Visit my Etsy store, and see if I don't have something you will love.

Attention Etsy Sellers

Have you ever participated in a BNR? Me neither, LOL! But tomorrow will be my first. I am giving you all a heads up in case you wish to participate. I will post the link to the BNR at 8 AM tomorrow, when it begins. It is being hosted by Team FEST, of which I am a proud member.

This is how it works. 16 shops begin the BNR, I will be one, and am offering 50% off all my items, others will have other sales that should be listed in the comments. If you see something you would like to purchase, in the comment section you request permission to purchase from shop, so and so. The curator will then give you permission to do so. After you have purchased you come back with the transaction ID. Then your shop replaces the shop in the treasury for others to hopefully buy from you. It is my understanding that this is a great way to increase sales. Once your shop has had an item bought from it, and you want to get back in, you need to make a purchase. The minimum purchase is 5 dollars, and you can buy any item in that persons shop not just the treasury item. You do have to have a Etsy shop to obviously get in the BNR, however your regular shoppers can still purchase from your store if they choose to. So keep your eyes open for the Team FEST BNR, begins at 8 AM tomorrow, until 8 PM. Easter is coming, you will get some great deals.

Ammonite and Ammolite

I am fascinated with Ammolite, which actually is a trade name for the company that took prehistoric Ammonite fossils, and made them into gemstones they named Ammolite. If you are a collector of gemstones that are truly natural, or organic this gemstone is for you. I do not own any, but I will sometime in the near future. Watch the video it is an amazing creation made by Mother Nature.

Tanzanite and White Topaz Band Ring

This style of ring has been a popular one for my shop. I have sold three with pink tourmaline, and white topaz. This is the only one I have that is Tanzanite and White Topaz. Each stone measures 3mm round, for a total carat weight of 30 points, or 1/3 of a carat. It is a size 6 sterling silver. This would make an awesome wedding band for those who like the non traditional look. It would also make a wonderful bridesmaid, graduation, first communion, or sweet 16 gift, or a pinky ring if so desired. The price is right, and it is petite, sweet, and just lovely. Very comfortable to wear. I wear this same ring as my wedding band, with a pink sapphire and blue diamonds. I wear it every single day, with no problems. This ring can be purchased in my Etsy store. Be sure to check out all my items. I offer combined shipping, and a free layaway service.
