My cousin was in town this week and one of the places we like to go is the Brass Armadillo. She found a case containing a lot of silver jewelry and she bought about 10 or so rings and pendants. All .925 sterling which is almost 100% pure. They were priced to clear that's for sure. So I wandered over when she told me and bought a sterling and pearl (real) ring and went back and bought a bracelet. Anywhere else, I bet the bracelet would cost at least $100 and the ring would probably be between $75 and $100. I paid $17 for the bracelet and $7 for the ring. Talk about a deal. Smokin'!!!
