Hi-

I am new to this forum (I am usually on MUA). I am just getting interested in jewelry. I like silver jewelry best on me. This weekend I went to Tiffany's and bought the beaded bracelet with the teeny lock pendant and I love it. Now I am plotting to get the key necklace and a charm bracelet at the very least.

Who else sells nice silver jewelry that is good quality? I esp. am interested in finding some nice hoop earrings - maybe less expensive than Tiffanys but a few steps up in quality from the mall kiosk?

Any recs are appreciated, thanks!

Hi
Welcome to the forum : )

How about Georg Jenson - who does nice but fairly expensive silver jewellery
http://www.georgjensen.com/English/Collections/Jewellery/Woman/Necklaces_Pendants.aspx

Or Links of London who do a lot of nice silver jewellery and charm bracelets etc
http://www.linksoflondon.com/

How about Pandora? (lots of threads on here about Pandora) - I have a silver charm bracelet and the charms can also be worn on leather necklaces, earrings, rings etc
http://www.pandora-jewelry.com/UK.aspx

And not sure where you are located, but this is a nice silver jewellery shop which is low-mid priced - would be good for nice hoop earrings, I think.
http://www.azendi.com/

Alex Monroe is nice (they sell gold and silver)
http://www.alexmonroe.com/m4/Earrings/index.html

And how about www.etsy.com - if you do a search for silver hoop earrings, you could be on this website for days!!! Lots of jewellery makers who sell their own jewellery

Hope these help.

Judith Ripka for QVC

Judith Jack for QVC

Judith Jack mainline (has a lot of marcasite in the jewelry)

Independent designers on Etsy

Same! I think Tiffany is so overpriced for what it is. QVC has some really nice sterling pieces not from those lines too and they have a great return policy. Check out the customer reviews and you can see which items are favorites.

Also, Novica.com has some really wonderful things and are more of a "feel good" purchase for me b/c of how the business is set up.

Oh, elizat, how could I forget Novica.com? I highly recommend Novica. There are so many great Artisans on that site. Beautiful filigree pieces. Also, elizat is correct about other great pieces from QVC besides those lines I recommended. I love QVC. Watch out...it can be addicting. LOL!

Hermes has beautiful silver jewelry. It is solid and smooth and feels wonderful. And there are lots of styles of rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc.

QVC is having a designer silver day, Saturday I think and they carry some excellent silver designers, ann king (wife of Lagos), Barbara Bixby (combo silver/gold), Robert Lee Morris (modern), Anthony Nak, Judith Ripka, et al. Try searching on their website if you can't watch Saturday.

Whoa there, I looked on QVC.com and there are indeed some nice items there. I would have never in a million years thought to look there!
