One of the places my sister and I frequent whenever it's gift giving time for the women in the family. That's right, we have 4 women who are all born in September and that's pretty much the month we all go broke :)
Because all are very much into jewelry, and one of which is a Gemologist (no less), we can't make mistakes.
We head to this place for a bulk deal, shall we say. Something like if we buy 4 sets of earrings, broch - can we get the matching rings for free?
A lot of times, the answer is yes and we end up getting some fabulous stuff!
I think the stuff comes sourced from all over, something like the stones direct from mine owners (which is the only way to go), and then the mounting is produced and all done in Asia (China maybe).
Nevertheless, the result is the very best looking stuff, at a fraction of the price you can find at regular retail!
