Stones, I love these stones!

Last summer, I had a craving for huge, chunky, clear crystals (big time) and started making and buying lots of chandelier crystals for my jewelry collection. A month or so later, I read that the “clear” jewelry trend was hitting everyone in the industry full force, and is in fact still trending this spring and summer as well.

So, on even the chance that I hit this trend right before it officially “trends,” I’m sharing this summer’s jewelry obsession: natural stones with lots of color. And, hands down, my favorite seller is Ana Silver Co. I just mentioned this ebay shop to my Bravo Hos, but I wanted to blog about it as well, in case it helps others to start their own love affair with these remarkable stones.

Look close! I get lost inside the wonder of some pieces, their stones are just cut so beautifully. You would swear you are looking at miniature galaxies in their jasper, fossilized shells in their agate. Their settings tend to be on the simpler side, allowing the stone to take center stage. Why gild the lily?

And, I can speak positively from experience. Having already bought a lovely set of orange Botswana agate ring and earrings (similar to what’s pictured here, but different) I was quite pleasantly surprised to see such clean workmanship when the items arrived.

Many of the auctions close at prices that can’t be beat. Be warned, you may find yourself craving some color and drama for your vacation, or your trip to the beach, after browsing just a few of their 9,000+ items currently for sale on ebay.
