chunky and silver ( ladies, I need your help )

ok, I presume the answers ( if any ) will come from the ladies of the forum...
.
.
.
Mrs. G has taken a fashion turn toward chunky and silver jewelry, and as her birthday is coming up ( 29 again !! ) I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for stores, or on line sites perhaps , fav. designers?

Re: chunky and silver ( ladies, I need your help )

I just did a search on eBay.com for "chunky silver jewelry" and a lot of results came through. (A lot of brand new items are sold on eBay, so not all of it's used).

Another site I like for jewelry is overstock.com. They have a great selection of jewelry from all over the world and have pretty reasonable shipping rates.

Good luck!

Re: chunky and silver ( ladies, I need your help )

Have a look at the silver jewellery my daughter Charlotte makes.
Her website is charliehigh.com
She has won many awards and I can certainly guarantee the quality.
If you ordered something I could bring it back from the UK for you and exchange it too if Mrs.G doesn't like it.

Re: chunky and silver ( ladies, I need your help )

thanks ceppy.. some interesting pieces, but I am going to need to take a better look tonight.

Re: chunky and silver ( ladies, I need your help )

You know, I was just going to post the same (ish) question myself, though looking around Basel.

Rather than create another thread though mister, and possibly reduce your replies, I'll wait and see what turns up here first and then maybe later.

The lasses, they love the shiny stuff don't they?

I've just sent you a personal message with Charlotte's mobile number so that you would be able to discuss with her what Mrs. G might like.
She's in Brighton and would I'm sure be happy to meet you and show you some samples.
She sells in a good few shops in Brighton and Hove, but you'd get a much better deal buying from her personally.
I'm such a duffer that I don't know how to send a link to her website, but I know that it is charliehigh.com

I really love Pandora charm bracelets. This is their website in French..

You can find them in Christ jewellers, also Globus and Jelmoli.

Ha ha...

Just be glad it's SILVER that she's into and not gold!

I'm a bit of a jewelry junkie myself, though nothing expensive. My thing lately is anything with labradorite or moonstone.

Re: chunky and silver ( ladies, I need your help )

Well, almost any woman would love a little blue box from Tiffany's and their silver stuff isn't crazy expensive.

Back in the US I liked some of the Silpada stuff, but it is like the Tupperware of jewelry where women have home parties and order stuff, not sure that you could order it for Europe...(aren't I helpful). Looking at their prices, though, I think it is really overpriced!

You could always get something in white gold, just to make it more special (and it will never go black)
