What is your favorite site for crystal and stone jewelry? Not just a site that has tumbled stones or rough pieces, but that also has jewelry pieces. Can also be a site that is exclusively jewelry pieces.

Is there a thread on here that I missed that addresses this topic? If so, please send the link, I would appreciate it!

I've been looking for some good chakra jewelry for a couple of years...no joy yet but I'll bump the thread.

There are often marketplace sellers on amazon that sell nice gemstone jewellry. A few of them don't ship internationally which is annoying for me.

I got a lovely labradorite pendant from exotic india, I would recommend ordering from them it arrived quickly and safely with really good packaging.

@ Labhraín: I guess you have checked the sites listed in the first post of the Crystals & Herbs opening page? There are lots of good links there and I think they all still work? (I hope. Please let me know if there are links that do not work..)

Glimmerdream and Gemisphere; beautiful stones and jewels, and many interesting facts about crystals and gemstones.

My current favourite but somewhat expensive is:
http://dollybirddesign.com/
She also does custom work.

I have also bought items from http://www.semiprecious.com/ and was quite happy with the items.

I did look through all those sites, thank you Hemera! Some I wasn't too crazy about but I can see so many of them are wonderful for spheres and other different shaped objects that you would have in the home or at your desk at work, tumbled stones, rough pieces, etc. There was another site, come to think of it, Crystals and Jewelry.com http://crystalsandjewelry.com/, which seems really nice, I'll have to have another lookthrough again.

I have looked at that site before, semiprecious.com. They seem to have good variety and good prices. You liked the quality there?

These sparkly, delicate pieces are so beautiful in person - the camera just doesn't pick up on all the tiny little facets and shine, but they look like the sort of thing a fairy princess would wear! I have yet to purchase for myself, but have bought a few as gifts.
The bracelets and necklaces are my favorites, made with tiny little silver beads and all different crystals and gemstones. So feminine, so graceful, I'd love to get 3 or 4 bracelets to wear together. And the woman who makes them - she's great. Customer service is excellent, and the packaging is to die for...she puts the pieces in those pretty little asian silk purses, then in a beautifully wrapped box...breathtaking!

Yes, I liked the quality but it's been a few years since I bought something there.
I bought this pendant in blue (iolite) and in green (peridot) as peridot is my birthstone in Vedic astrology and is associated with my most favourable planet Mercury:

I don't think I bought anything else but I'm not sure anymore...

They have great jewelry (as well as other stuff). I have quite a few of their pieces and they will also do custom work if you see a previous piece that you like.

The more ornate pieces, such as the one attached, are listed toward the bottom. She will also make a bracelet to match if you ask :D

This remainds me, I need to make a pendy for a certain somebody. I haven't forgotten if you see this. I haven't been making anything. But I did dust off all my bead boxes.

I hope these links works. I guess all these links are loose beads cause I make (or used to make) jewelry.

I'm glad everyone was so helpful in providing their favorite jewelry sites. I can always count on my people here at Aeclectic.

I mentioned the sites below before, but I'll consolidate my favorites here. I haven't actually purchased anything from these sites (I might soon!) but I have visited them many times and they are not only plentiful in the pieces they offer (spheres, pyramids, tumbled stones, jewelry), but they also are a treasure trove of information. So if you are looking for meanings of stones or which ones work for a particular need, check these sites out. They are a lot of fun and really are like metaphysical encyclopedias, so to speak. Enjoy and thank you again for all of your suggestions.
