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!

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

As strange as I might believe, millions and I included a strong belief in the healing powers of jewelry. Specifically, the stones of good luck crystals. These are refined crystals taken from the most precious rocks on Earth, which are often found in deep soil or the cave.

Your stone collection is so beautiful! Stones are nature's work of art. I can see why so many eyeshadow shades and palettes are inspired by pretty stone colors. <333

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

 

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

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!

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

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

I LOVE those roller bottles! @greeneyedgirl107 

I put the KORRES - Wild Rose Brightening Oil in the rose quartz one and  I put SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil in the amethyst one. I love stones so much that I have been considering getting the INC.REDIBLE - Roller Baby Lip Gloss in the adventurine stones just because I don't have a green roller bottle!

 

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@mermadelove I LOVE aventurine!  I remember being crazy about it when my dad got me a small polished stone of it as a child Smiley Happy

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@greeneyedgirl107  my dad is the one who started my stone addiction, too! He came back from a business trip to Brazil with a set of tumbled stones and it was all over! 

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@mermadelove That is so sweet!  i HAVE to mention this to my dad Smiley Happy

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!
