CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

I know a few of us share a passion for crystals and jewelry as well as makeup so thought I would start a thread on this. Share your stash, finds, whatever!

@veronika23 How did I only just now discover this thread? 😂

 

Two recent purchases. Silver rope wrapped Labradorite and an itty bitty moonstone.

Both are pretty, @pixiedust2! I love big rings like your Labradorite.

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@pixiedust2 - These are both so pretty!  💖💖💖

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@pixiedust2  hahahaha who knows. 😂😂😂

 

Nice finds!!! Love the moonstone with the crescent moon! 🖤🖤🖤🌙🌙🌙

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Thanks V! I might post that skull you sent me. Even though it’s not a real gem, it sparkles like one and makes me smile every time I walk past it 🌈🥰😘

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

I thought these would fit here. This person on IG has an online class where she teaches you how to do this. But she’s Russian and I’m not sure I would understand her LOL. I’ve been searching for some press on nails like this. I can’t stop looking at them. If anyone finds a tutorial on this, please tag me!

Saw this in-store and just had to pick it up for a friend: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Crystal Serum Roller

and I paired it with this SEPHORA COLLECTION - Jojoba Protecting Oil

I also thought these were pretty cute: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Crystal Facial Roller Set

and INC.REDIBLE - Crystal Ball Roller Gloss - undefined

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Hi I reposted this in this group which I think is a better fit..

 

This week I have 3 plated necklaces I wear all the time and the gold finish has been completely removed in parts.  The only thing different I've been using is I added Kora Noni glow oil to the Sephora Rose quartz crystal roll on and ordinary mineral sunscreen.  Has anyone else experienced this? Could minerals in rose quartz dissolving in oil or minerals in sunscreen cause this? I've been using Josie's mineral sunscreen for years without a problem

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@melanito Is the base metal 925 silver (or real gold)? If so, you can have them dipped and it will restore the finish. Lots of jewelers do this and it’s fairly inexpensive. There’s a jeweler kiosk at my local mall, and they charge $25 to re-dip my ring. Sorry I don’t have an answer on how it happened, but there’s hope to fix them if you really love them. 

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Oh wow that's inexpensive. Thanks I thought it would be much more than that!

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@melanito - It looks like the oil tarnished the gold plating.  I found this info on a Google search:  Wait to put on your gold plated jewelry until after you have applied perfume, lotion, and makeup. Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, perfume, or chlorine can react with the gold plated jewelry item and the base metal underneath, causing it to tarnish more easily.  It also said you can take the jewelry to a jeweler to have it replated; it's "simple and inexpensive."

thanks!

thanks!

RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

I just bought a few crystals the other day. A new shop opened just around the corner from my house and I’m super excited. I honestly don’t remember what these all are but one is a worry stone (the one with the thumb print in it). And rose quartz is my favourite and supposed to be good for self esteem. I have a lot of mental health struggles and I’m trying to find natural ways of supporting my health.

Re: RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Hi, @KehDee !  I just came across your post!  Love your stones!  A worry stone is a great idea.  I bought one for my dad decades ago.  He carried it around in his pants pocket every day so all he had to do was put his hand in his pocket and rub away and no one would know.  Yours is very pretty!

Re: RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

These are beautiful @KehDee ❤️ Love the rose quartz and jade especially 

Re: RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@KehDee These are so beautiful. I love the idea of a worry stone!

 

Best,

Rebecca

RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

I’m brand new to this stuff. A friend bought me a few crystals when I started my medical leave from work and another friend makes Malas with crystals. Rose quartz is my favourite. But my rose quartz malas both broke so one is currently getting repaired. I really want a geode necklace. Any favourite Etsy shops or places to buy them?

RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Check Amazon they have some pretty ones

RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Thanks! I’ll definitely look

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Found more of my moonstones except for several pair of earrings.
