I've never bought any jewellery on the web, can anyone recommend a good site? I'm looking in the £50-100 range, so not exactly amazing but not £5 tat either.

Thanks for any tips.

Oh god - what type?

Gold?
Silver?
Gemstone? - Diamond or semi-precious?
Pearls?

Need more detail than you've given, Dear...

£50-£100 sounds like cheap tat to me and hardly worth researching. You get what you pay for etc..

You'll get more bangs for your buck with semi-precious set in silver, btw...

Sorry for lack of detail. I'm specifically looking for a silver necklace (simple elegant silver chain) with a single stone. Ideally it would be diamond but that would be more like £500 for a decent stone, so zirconia or similar would be OK.

And yes I guess £50 might be a bit low, let me revise to £100-200.

Except I don't want it plated, and it needs to be a square-cut or similar. But that's the right kind of thing, all these other sites have more complex designs - I'm looking quite minimalist here, essentially a stone on a chain.

Are you in London, d000hg? If so, pop along to Hatton Garden, if not try this (http://www.hatton-garden.net/).
