Bought these over the last week or so, firstly just to say about the delivery, first ones I had were with the standard service. Can't say I was overwhelmed with the service, hated not knowing when it would arrive, so my last order I paid the extra 1 and boy was it worth it. As KB has already posted, they text you when it is coming and even give you a chance to change the date, so I was quite happy with DPD and also the prompt delivery. I also want to say a big thank you to Tim in CS for sorting a problem out for me last week, excellent service, many thanks.
Right these are my new purchases:

Finally got some MJO earrings, very pleased with them, opals are a good size and there are lots of neons greens, purples and blues dancing around.

This was on as part of a set, but the pendant was quite big so decided just to go for the bracelet The lavender jade is really pretty and a lovely colour.

I've seen rutile quartz on air many times but not golden rutile. Its a very pale yellow and the 'needles' make this a very different gemstone.

Now I hadn't seen this before and am really pleased with the pendant and the earrings. Lovely clear stones and I just love the colour, the green sapphires seem to be an added bonus.

I may give these pendants as pressies, haven't quite decided yet. Lovely colour to the stones and the diamonds give these pieces a bit of bling too. I think they're quirky.

Just love this ring, the diamonds are small but lots of them and very twinkly and fiery. The rubies are a good colour and in white gold this piece looks very classy.
I would like to say I am now going on the wagon......fat chance!! (I think I need help!!)

Well done Jo on a great and very interesting selection of goodies.

I saw a couple of your pieces on earlier this pm and now I'm kicking myself that I didn't go for the ruby/diamond eternity type ring! Your description makes it sound lush irl.

Am delighted you got some excellent MJO's in your earrings. I've had a few goes at getting the right one but was rewarded very recently for my efforts with a small MJO ring......and the mixed colours are lovely. :)

PS Love the Olive Quartz matching pendant and earrings, don't they look dainty and elegant?

Great haul Jo and really glad the delivery service was good for you. I think it's definitely worth the extra 1.

I saw the Olive Quartz pendant and it's really big isn't it? It looks fab especially with the matching earrings. The handbag pendants are great - so different. I heard them saying you could put them on your handbag as charms instead of wearing them as pendants but I'd be too scared they fell off of or got half inched!! I've never seen Rutile Quartz IRL but it sounds nice. The earrings and ring are just fab.

Well done.

Hi Jo, lovely pieces as always. Nice to see some mintabie earrings, glad they're full of colour for you. I like the olive quartz too, I'm a big fan of dangly briolettes. I think the pendants will make perfect pressies, even my daughter at six, would love that sort of thing. http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f75/westhammers/Smilies/dancing.gif

Nice to have positive feedback about the delivery, I'm having my first trial of it so fingers crossed. http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x37/mimiforsix/Smilies/Xfingers.gif

Thanks Peeps for your comments, KB I did think the handbag pendants would make a good addition to a charm bracelet. The Olive Quartz pieces are so crystal clear and I love the colour, they're not like any colour I have in my collection, and they're a good size too.
Sammi 'fess up what were you wearing? I might just wanna rob you instead!!;)

When I've seen the jade they have been selling the earrings, bracelet & pendant as three games in a row.

I have the same earrings but in pink jade that I bought last year, I think. They were 6, so was quite surprised to see them selling for about 4 times the price!

Well the games I saw were just the earrings and the bracelet.....looks like I should be watching more often. I bet they are sold out now.

Plus.......don't tell me there were pink ones!!! :mad::mad::mad:

I saw all 3 as games a couple of time last weekend....can imagine they were popular because they're really pretty.

When I bought the earings in pink I never saw matching items.
