Helooowwwww remember the 2 different size pearls that im planning to make a missmatch earrings??? Well changed my mind and have them made into 2 small bangles. Big silverish pearl with citrine and smaller green pearl with peridot. The bangles are made of 18 ct solid yellow gold. The stones are set in claws. Trillion cut citrine with 3 claws n diamond cut peridot with 4 claws. The pearls are drilled halfway. I really loooveee how it turned out n might make the blue akoya paired with purple garnet as well.

I am reflecting from myself right? Im just a regular working girl but I want to have actual fine jewelleries. Made of real pearls, real gemstones n real high carat gold. But I dont want it to cost an arm n a leg because I simply can't afford it. So hopefully in the future I can share the things to other women as well. An affordable fine jewelleries. I like cheap things that actually have value n looking expensive.
Anyway..its mine now but I might have it made sum more with colorful stones n pearls. I loooveee these 2 bangels! Good for stacking!

Oh I think moderators will have a word with you now)) but in the mean time, I do like what you (your jeweller or you? I didn't quite get it) made with these pearls)) can you show in the closeup the facets on the bands? Are they laser cut on the piece or casted? Looks pre-casted by the way it's polished, but who knows from the photos)))

Just one remark)) sorry, but:
The bangles are made of 18 ct solid yellow gold.

don't really make sense to me. That bangle, being even just 2mm in diameter (what is it in diameter btw?) would be at least 11 grams of gold.. and in 18K gold it sums up to at least 350 dollars :) plus the pearl, the stones aaaaand (the most expensive) jeweller's work.. well, 18K gold bangle hardly can ever work out to be cheap) but nice work, I really like these)

How would the mod will be having a word with me?? What did I do? Ofcourse this is made by the jeweller. Im not a jeweller. And you think it will be expensive right? But its not hahah. I think its cheap in the sense of you still get the quality with a modest price. Ive seen gold filled items or silver bangles or thinner lower carat gold more expensive than mine.
Sharing is telling my friends because they often asks me where I get my things done. Im a jewelleries freak according to them n they think Ive spent a fortune but I didnt. I mean im a woman..i like cheap
The bangles are made whole, you just have to pick which one you want n then they will modify it. Added the claws n set the pearls. This one made in Australia like my previous big dangley earrings. Most of my other stuff completey hand made in Indonesia with 22 ct solid gold but thats even cheaper...

These are amazing and you can see them without finding a mirror! Love the colors and love them worn nested together.

I think you misunderstood me)) my only point was that you still cannot go away from the prices of precious metals, wherever you order your goods and however cheaply your jeweller charges. I.e. your choice of 18K gold seemed a bit controversial to your other point of having it made economically. You could use 14K or even 10K gold that would have more or less same appearance but would cut the price on gold itself by 30-50% (which is quite a lot of money, if we speak in bangles world :) ).

That was my only structural point :) sorry if it came across wrong)) your bracelets are very beautiful and I hope you will enjoy them))

PS about moderators - I thought your phrase of "possibly making them for other women" would contradict with the new rules of the forum, but it seems to have passed just fine) I over panicked :D

Thanks Bweaves n Gemgeek. Will have the blue akoya n purple garnet made next week (waiting for pay day haha).
Here are more pics of its. Hopes the patterns n prongs shown better. 1 bangle worn and 2 bangels worn together.
I like the trilion citrine. Kinda look like the demons tail wrapped around my wrist.

Hi Lugana! It didnt came up wrong. I just think that gold arent expensive. 40$ already can get 1 gr. Pearls are expensive. With one really niceee big pearl you can have 10 or 20 gr of gold. Which I think pearls deserve to be expensive anyway. I think gold is pretty economical. What I mean is you can get real pearl, real gold n real stones without paying batpoop crazy prices. The price closer to what the actual items worth, not being blown like my blow up doll boyfriend. Does that makes sense? I saw gold filled jewelleries or silver or 9 kt gold with half decent pearls being sold more expensive at shops in Sydney than the actual pearl gold jewelleries being made for me.

These nice jewels are worthy of the work of a very good designer, bravo!

Hi Eric! These models is common. I saw at shops or ar pinterest both ends using pearls or only one end have pearl n the other end is nothing or just like a closed bangle with one pearl. I just have some colored stones I bought the other day for the earrings. So I just ask them to put the stone in one end n the pearl on the other end n it turned out great!

Great bracelets and look to be fun to wear. Your stone and pearl combinations are very complementary. Well done!

Can you still work with those bangles on your wrist? Frankly I'd stare at them all day long and get nothing done.

I really like this design and it does seem to be very popular now, for a reason! I prefer the bangles over the earrings too!
