Browsing around eBay in recent months, I've started following a few sellers in India who sell some really beautiful ethnic jewelry-- very inexpensive, not solid gold of course but in many cases with natural stones. I'm particularly interested in some of the choker & earring sets. Now, I know you get what you pay for, but anybody else have any experience with any of those who sell this type of jewelry and have anyone in particular that they'd recommend? I know the quality of the natural stones won't be that good of course given the very low prices, but more interested in the quality of the workmanship... I've seen a few pics of sets with missing stones.

On another topic, one thing I collect and absolutely love are lockets, both antique and new. I get nice ones on eBay from time to time, and have found that I can get really pretty ones from a designer called "Princess Pride" on buyz.com for next to nothing (some are exact replicas of Black Hills gold lockets which I love). Any other good sources anybody knows about? Honestly just looking for pretty and inexpensive, I admit. :lol:

hi paka,

one great place to look at is on the forum in the jeweler's bench section, and in the antique jewelry section- most of the forum members have their website listed in their profile on the forum and have posted pictures of their beautiful jewelry creations.
