New 99 Cents Jewelry Auctions - Save on Long Kidney Wire Earrings and Gemstone Chips


http://stores.ebay.com/jacgems

I just added a new store category, 99 Cents Jewelry Auctions, in addition to Penny Auctions. This category will be used for earrings that have a higher retail value, anywhere from $4.99 and up.  I sell the long kidney wire earrings generally from $7 to $10, depending on the gemstones used, so this can represent a substantial savings, depending on the bidding.

The auction winner (either category) will pay a shipping charge of $2.50. If multiple items are purchased, each additional item ships for just .75 cents when you combine items (do not pay separately; wait and pay at one time).

I just added two long kidney wire earrings, along with a pair of premium gemstone chip earrings. I list mostly silver plated or .925 silver, but decided to start out with gold plated and will be adding more items each week.  If any item does not sell, it will be re-listed until it does.  If there is something you would like to see in this new auction category, just let me know.

Here are some pics of what is available right now, 01/09/2014:

Sri Lanka Moonstone with Blue Bicones, gold plated.



Clear Swarovski Crystal, Blue Mexican Opal, gold plated.


Blue Aquamarine Premium Gemstone Chips, gold plated

 In addition to the above, I also just listed 3 pairs of earrings in the Penny Auction section. Visit the store today to see both and select the category you would like to view: http://stores.ebay.com/jacgems

Gemstone Chip Dangle Earrings in Sterling Silver Plate - New Penny Auctions

Gemstone chip dangle earrings are one of my most popular items and I have just added 3 styles to the Penny Auction category. Normally $3.49 to $4.99, bidding will start on the below dangle earrings at .01 and the buyer pays $2.50 for shipping. I provide a free organza gift bag.

If you have never participated in an auction on eBay, they are really easy, and plenty of fun, too. First you need to have an eBay account, which is free. I always suggest starting your bidding with your best bid and then eBay will bid on your behalf should there be competition. You always have the option to increase your top bid if you like.

I hope you'll give Penny auctions a try. I am just mailing out today a pair of multicolor turquoise earrings that sold for....1 penny. There was no other bidding on the item, so you might be able to get a lovely pair of gemstone chips earrings for a total of $2.51.

Here are the gemstone chips earrings that I just added.  Each is in sterling silver plate, with silver accent beads at the top and bottom of the chips.

Just click on each picture to go directly to that item. These auctions will be ending on the evening of December 19, 2013.

Blue Howlite in Sterling Silver Plate

Clear Quartz Sterling Silver Plated

Blackstone and White Howlite Sterling Silver Plated

That is the roundup of the most current additions. I'll be adding more penny auctions as I want to build up this category as I have quite a number of fixed price items. You can visit the store at http://stores.ebay.com/jacgems and you'll see until year end I have marked down the majority of items 25% as well. Happy Holidays!
