@CHRISTY-DANIELLE Darn you! I bought it. :oops2: I'm not very pleased with my behavior, but I'm sure I'll get over it when I see it. :lol-2:
Yesterday I tried to buy this Jedi cabochon but heard back it had already sold -- so very glad a PSer is the purchaser! MrsKMB, I am so looking forward to your in-hand photos and comments on this beautiful Spinel!


[And, MrsKMB, hopefully not an inappropriate request but if by chance the stone doesn't work out for you, I'd love to have 1st dibs on it]

You guys do know that ebayers typically have other accounts and bid on their own items to drive the price up, or to make sure it doesn’t sell too low a price. Not all do that, but just saying. The stone is also very included, almost translucent.
I feel like such a noob. I didn't know that either!

This is what’s known as Shill Bidding. eBay is rife with it, as are most other auction sites, however they do have a system in place that catches and rejects bids that come from the same IP address. My understanding is that other sites don’t catch them.

I must say, it feels good to have purchased something everyone loves! I've never bought anything from Joe before, so I'm rather excited!

Nice try, @CHRISTY-DANIELLE We're just a bunch of enablers! :lol-2:
And yes, @marymm I'll keep you in mind.

Well since we are on an enabling roll here, I see you are also a fan of Cecile Raley.... imagine that baby as the glorious center in this design:
