Hi, I'm confused because it said the finalists were the ones with the most green. Earrings posted by Jacie are not on the list.. and the one I was hoping to vote for - the tanzanite ring posted by MikeGroovy. I don't even see 2 of the above posted in the initial thread but I could very well just be blinded

The ring I posted isn't here and I'm sure it was in the top 5.

What does one get by voting here? /rhetorical

aaahh.. randomness, and yes I figured I was being blind The ring posted by MikeGroovy had 4 votes -- plus 1 red which is not supposed to count (can you tell I'd like that ring lol)

I don't know how to link to that specific post but it was on the first page

My posting made it so popular that its almost sold out! I think that deserves an award!

All of them are super pretty but I like the one I picked (ROSE DE FRANCE amethyst necklace) the best! Winning this would take some of the sting out of not getting it from a handsom boyfriend this year =P Happy Holidays everyone!

Haha, I know they didn't sell any through links in this thread (not sure about whether or not anyone got one through the Cash Back page). I did just IM you offering a reward anyway... but unfortunately it isn't that diamond ring

What a load of CR@P regarding the "random" selections.

What do you mean "remaining spots?" Two spots should have been filled by Suezyque and myself.

This is what the original rules read:

Finalist Selection: Finalists will be selected based on the highest number of positive(“green”) votes for each entry. Negative (“red”) votes will not be counted. In the event of a tie, entries with the highest number of positive votes will be selected by randomdrawing until the remaining finalist positions are filled. Initial voting round begins when the first item is nominated, and ends 11/26/2012, 11:59PM CST

Nothing personal to the people that are in the finals either.
I am reminded when things like this happen, how happy I am my mother taught me "life is not fair."

Just checked my earrings and there is no "low inventory warning."

^ I get the randomness of the ones that were tied, but yours should have been in finals.... unless some of the greens were after the fact? who knows?1

( plus its just fun to give the mods a hard time once in a while me waving Hi)

My vote can be bought, JSYK.

How much? Bahahahaha. I really love those earrings! I'm so happy just to be a finalist! Never ever been a finalist before!

I entered this as well, but was disheartened when the rules were not followed, even the finalists that are posted did not follow the rules. The rules stated "Pick out an item with an original price of $299 or less". It did not say a sale price of $299.00 or less. How can you NOT follow the rules, but be a finalist?

There is only one in the top 5 that actually qualifies under the rules posted.

The listed "retail value" isn't actually the price Jewelry.com ever sells at - it's just a reference point. The rules as I interpreted them referred to an original "price" of $299 or less (ignoring whether it had been marked down to a "clearance" price), not the "retail value."

I would like a logical explanation. From the Big Boss.

Huh?

I am so glad that amethyst is such a gorgeous stone and yet so reasonably priced, good job to my parents for conceiving me at the right time so that it is my birthstone ;D

Since someone else mentioned it, it appears that one of the votes came on 11/27 - after the voting had ended; however, 6 would have still been enough votes to make it. My notes indicate that the name of the item was not posted.

Solipsist you must be laughing at us! I just voted since the tanzanite ring isn't going to show up as a finalist... and FYI the amethyst pendant is in the lead

my favorite is the ring and next would be the earrings. no offense, but i don't see the lure of gemstones set in sterling. i like sterling, but i like natural stones set in it.

i like the tanzanite pendant

Jon, what a class act!

Oh WOW! I got this in the mail ALREADY! And I have to say, it is absolutely gorgeous! If you need a gift idea for a woman whose birthday is in February or just happens to like amethyst or purple, this is a great piece! The stone is even larger than I expected since I am used to gemstones being tiny if they cost less than $100. It reflects light and glitters just beautifully. OK, just wanted to let you all know and THANK YOU again!! Sabrina
