HSN’s Honking Larimar Ring Is A Temptation We Can’t Refuse

August 5, 2012

We should have, but we couldn’t, resist ordering HSN’s TS, a huge larimar ring, and the matching pendant, Saturday.

It came from the husband-wife team of Sajen Silver, Marianna and Richard Jacobs, who defected from ShopNBC to HSN several years ago.

As host-with-the-most Colleen Lopez explained, along with the Jabobs, creamy blue and white larimar (it reminds of us a cloud-ribboned sky) is a one-source stone, coming from the Dominican Republic.

In fact, here is the dope on larimar from HSN.com:

Can’t make it to the Islands? Then bring a piece of paradise home with this serene larimar ring. This rare stone, reminiscent of the Caribbean’s sun-dappled waters, comes from only one place on earth — the southwest mountains of the Dominican Republic.

Ancient volcanic eruptions there infused this stone with the beautiful blue-green color patterns that make it so unique. Swathed in a curving, contemporary, sterling silver setting, it exudes a graceful charm that’s the perfect complement to your casual yet elegant style.

Colleen actually did a great blog on “the dolphin stone” (hey, Colleen blogging is our turf!)

By the way, we got THE warning from QVC about returning too many items. We’ll be blogging on that little gem in the next couple of days,
