    Beautiful set! It would make a great all year go to set when you wouldn’t want something too heavy around your neck.

    This is a lovely set. The carnelian looks yummy! And I really appreciate gold-filled anything. The price of gold is so high even gold-filled is a real treat.
    Would you like me to post right side up pics for you?!

    Moogie, that’s so nice of you! If you could set the photos upright, I’d so appreciate it! I’m tech-challenged and can’t seem to correct the photos. They look perfect in the tiny thumbnails BEFORE I click “submit” then…uh-oh…But thank you both for the encouraging comments!

    You got it!
    I work on an IPad. I have found, for some reason, even if the pics appear upright, they “transfer” wonky. So I discovered that if I edit in IPad, turning the pic all the way around (360 degrees), they come out right side up (even though they appear right side up to begin with). No idea why!

    Waaaat!? Ha! Moogie that’s crazy! I do this on my IPad too. So, I’ll take your wise advice and try that! Thanks SO much!
