As one of our wonderful pickers commented when his young son asked where he was heading, “Off to see the pirate’s treasure,” what is our bounty this time?

-          Stunning gold snake collar with rubies for eyes….snakes are incredibly rare…a “must see”

-          Breathtaking gold teardrop pendant encrusted with rose cut diamonds and completely overlaid with black onyx, even a compartment in the back for a picture of a loved one or perhaps a lock of hair


-          Not one but three of the chunkiest link, perfect length, gold chains…similar to trombone link

-          Trombone or paperclip link have your eye? Don’t fret..we have a superbly chunky and perfect length one in gold and maybe by show time even one in 15ct as well as several in various chunkiness in sterling

-          Gold fobs of various sizes to adorn your current chain and to create your personal “look” including the chunkiest, most amazing one with a buckle in the bezel

-          If you are starting to feel lost and not sure which way to go after reading about so many “goodies” then a compass might be in order…a silver banjo-shaped one, intricately woven gold bezel set one, or a simple gold or silver to add to your current “neck mess” might be in order

-          Solid bangle with bezel set amethysts or gold bangles with diamonds may add desired sparkle
