Tali Nay first discovered gemstones while standing with her parents in a grocery store check-out line. The cheap display of birthstone keychains in front of her, each embedded with a single synthetic stone, was captivating. And the best part? Her own birthstone-the diamond-was the most beautiful of all. Since this childhood discovery, Tali's fondness for all things gem has ...more

While I’ve only met this author a few times, I can picture her speaking as I read her books and that makes them so delightful for me. Also, I have a serious secret obsession with all things jewelry and could pretty much see myself having many of the same thoughts. I grew up with the idea that jewelry didn’t matter, and while that’s true in one sense (a small, un relevant sense) I love all things that sparkle and there is nothing that sparkles like diamonds. This was a truly enjoyable book for me ...more

I have said this before and the same is true for this book, I love Tali Nay's writing style. She writes like I would talk to a friend. It isn't formal or always grammatically correct, but just how I would picture someone talking. And that makes it fun to read and keeps me moving through the book wanting to read more. Reading her books makes me want to get into reading and writing more myself.

As someone who has never been a jewelry person myself, I was a little worried that there wouldn't be much

The second in Tali Nay's book series, Jeweled is all about gems and jewelry. Instead of following a linear path, these stories bounced around chronologically based on a theme. It's interesting to hear about the role jewelry has played in her life, then reflect on what it has played in mine. While I don't consider myself a gem enthusiast, I did enjoy the book. This is a light and fun read that is perfect to read after something heavy or depressing.

I really enjoyed this book! A well written memoir about those special pieces of jewelry in the author's life, and how jewelry in general has impacted her life. Funny, smart, and sweet. I wanted to go to Tiffany's ASAP by the end of the first chapter. Highly recommend!!

I loved this book as much as Tali's first book, Schooled. She has a wonderful, authentic voice. I laughed out loud, and I learned a lot about things that sparkle!

Tali Nay always wanted to be a fiction writer and was thus surprised when "real life" is what came out when she actually sat down to write something substantial. Tali studied writing in college, and then—entirely by accident—found herself working in business. She went on to earn an MBA, although recently left Corporate America in order to pursue her dream of becoming a gemologist. After a stint in ...more
