As I posted in another thread, I've been searching eBay recently for Gems items.

On the whole I preferred the earlier, quirkier Gems designs, and they are now filtering through on to the second hand market.

This beauty arrived today woo

I'm a rubbish photographer but you can see the size and colour of the stone - it's yummy. It's also clearer than I was expecting for the cost, which was about a third of the original Gems selling price.

It's really worth checking eBay for Gems items. The sellers don't always declare (or know) that the jewellery is from Gems, but it's quite easy to pick out because the detailed descriptions including stone weight and gems weight are a giveaway. You can also find the rings by doing a search for 'size n'

Ouch! £1,140

I guess it was considerably cheaper than that on Ebay then!
It starts off at £0, but when you put it in your basket the price shoots up to £1,140 SCW.

I was excited when I saw £0 ...
I'm wondering if it's just a quirk of the website - surely it's not still available, and if it is, that CAN'T be the current selling price? can it?

Well anyway I'm going to tell Mr Jantac that I got a £1140 emerald ring for £84 - that should soften the blow when he sees the bank statementclapping
Oh yes, it could be, couldn't it? It just didn't seem like a high enough price (under the old system where the starting prices were so stupidly high)

Or it could be the current 'shop price' - they seem very high
