Hi I have just discovered this forum and am thrilled to bits because you all seem so lovely and your posts are funny and knowledgeable..and you love gems like me!!!
I have been watching R&C, TJC etc for about a year now and have bought a lot of pieces but have to admit have sent a lot back too because ive had to learn as I go along and its a big learning curve.
I've loved jewels since I was tiny..all that sparkles etc, I was given a piece of amber and some paste dangly earrings when I was 7 and that was it!
Find some of the information on the telly misleading or just plain confusing sometimes and am learning more from these pages thanks to you guys.
yesterday the presenter on TJC called some sapphires 'marquee cut' and said another diamond ring would make the wearer feel like a domestic goddess..hope not thats the last thing i'd want after forking out a couple of grand!!
Hi briolette and a very warm welcome to the forum :)

I am sure you will enjoy your time here,you are correct in saying that everyone is lovely,very helpful too when it comes to gems etc,I too have learnt an awful lot from the wonderful peeps here,and made a few friends also.

I look forward to seeing your goodies as time goes on,we do like a drool!!:D
:welcome: to blingsters anonymous Briolette!!! Hope you enjoy being here, as Sweetpea says, we like a good nose, so don't forgot to post piccies or links to the goodies you buy, so we can all have a good gawp!!!
Hi, Briolette! Good to have you here. Or should I say, as so many presenters have irritated me with in the past.... hello, Briolay!!

So many happy gemlovers here, you will enjoy it here, I'm sure!!
Hi, briolette! what a nice name.... welcome to the ST forum!
Since you make the "marquee" comment, I gues that you would be called, by some presenters ( who have driven me crazy with this!!) briolay !! Aaargh!!
A warm welcome, briolette!

Edit: oops! thought first post had somehow got lost , so reposted.... apologies!

to the forum Briolette. I can only echo what's already been said. I have made lots of lovely friends on here and it's a great place to get advice, information, show off your purchases and even sound off if something or somebody annoys you - not that I'd ever do that of course!

I look forward to reading your posts in the future.
Well! what can i say...thank you folks for such a warm welcome..i am so happy to be with you.
Must say first of all that there is nothing i would like more than to show you my prizes, the good ones that is! if i get brave enough i have a pathetic looking tanzanite wannabee i am ashamed to say i bought..I suspect it came out of a christmas cracker once>>oh did they see me coming! Problem is I am not at all computer savvy and i don't know how to make links or post pictures but I photograph all my jewellery when it arrives and keep a record of price etc
love my new name of Bree-olay!! Still smiling though about the very funny post about the price of a sleeve! Anyway must put the telly on and in the words of Jerilee look at all the gasp! lovely jooolery! bye
Hi Briolette! It's great to 'meet' you - I'm fairly new here too and have found everyone very friendly and fun and great with advice!
Hi Briolette, welcome to the forum, im not too computer savvy either but if you have the codes i'm sure somebody here would do the links for you, Take Care, happy blingbuying xx
thank you for your kind and welcoming messages..im so pleased to have found a place to talk about jewels..Its all I think about much of the time..would love to make my own!
Look forward to getting to know everyone..thanks to Kosblue, Sweetpea, Mad4gems,Mathilda, Argeybargey, Supercoolwillow, Pandabear, Rubyrose, Rebeccab and Toadette..all great names.
Hi Briolette, just adding my tuppence worth of welcome! I havn't been here that long either and you are so right in saying that everybody is lovely, welcoming and very knowledgeble, they are a fab bunch - I learn something new about my favourite subject almost every day and have a good hoot at the comments along the way. :wave2:
And welcome from me, too, Briolette!

If you post the item numbers of pieces you bought from any of the channels, someone will come along in a jiffy and post the links.
to the bling mad club briolette!

Hope you'll have a lot of fun here. I noticed you posted on the Rocks & Co forum. Have you bought anything from them lately?
:hi: Hello to Flossie, Tia and Miss Magpie and thank you for your lovely welcomes! Thanks for advice about item numbers..i will put them in this message and see if anyone has the time to do the links.
My daughter is always trying to teach me computer tricks but I am a hopeless case..I grew up with typewriters and library books!!!

Amethyst ring from Rocks 381 528 still hasnt arrived its a consignment stuck somewhere apparently!
Paraiba ring from TJC 603 083 took a chance with this as i didnt see it for long and don't know the gold weight..but it made my day to order it!

Thanks from Briolette
