Re: TOO MUCH? Diamond studs for 1yr anni. w/ girlfriend

My now husband gifted me with diamond studs for our first Christmas together-which was about 3-4 months after we started dating. We got engaged a year later and eloped two months after that. I was blown away by the gift but I didn't feel any sort of obligation after it or develop any expectations fr...

Re: Do you hide your love, er, obsession for fine jewelry?

I don't see a love of jewelry and the various activities that go with it differently than any other expensive hobby. It's something you're interested in and it's something you enjoy. Besides, if they don't know you love jewelry how are they going to know to buy it for you? :Up_to_something: :naughty...

Did you get a new wedding set? I loved your VC/BN step cut! Although this new set is gorgeous as well! :love:


Oh no, my VC is still on my left hand. This is a RHR that I had Caysie make out of two old pairs of diamond studs and a loose stone I had kicking around.

Reuse - Recycle My New CvB 5-stone "Stephanie" RHR

For the past several months I've been working with Caysie at CvB Inspired Designs, to re-purpose a few old pairs of earrings and a small RHR. The process was pretty easy, though we did have some communication hiccups along the way. After several iterations and frustrations on both sides, I now have ...

Re: Anyone ever do a post nup?

Re: Ever lose a diamond? Where do you think it is?

I find a pantyhose leg works really well on a vacuum with the attachment the other poster posted. I lost one of the diamond studs my husband gifted me when we were dating. I suspect it's either in the filter trap in my washing machine (can't figure out how to access it), or in the trap of my shower ...

Re: A $35K ring or a $35K car?

RING! Qualifying my post with my justification. A $35k car isn't just $35k. You have the cost of maintenance and taxes as well over the life of the vehicle. Rings on the other hand aren't taxed after the initial sales tax, only need repairs on occasion, and the only ongoing cost is for insurance. A...

Re: Costco vs. Sam's Club?

We shop at BJs, but typically only before a party. I don't find that buying in bulk reduces our grocery expenditures. ...*giggles at the name of the store* Girl you don't even understand!

I didn't take any, but I'm sure others will chime in. Prizes off the top of my head...I got $250 from Dave Atlas to spend at any PS vendor, and so did Hudson Hawk. Athenaworth got the JBEG earrings.

Re: Value of chipped OEC? (pics)

If he's "guaranteed" that there isn't a chip and that's not correct per your appraisal then I'd either consider returning it or asking for some money back.

Just say it's a gift. Don't say it's jewelry or gems. Though they should only be asking if it contains prohibited things.

Re: Opinions on Setting & Buying from Etsy Store BeautifulPe

Etsy transactions usually go through PayPal, which does have decent protection. If you use a credit card linked to your paypal account then you'll also have your credit card protection in place.

I've never purchased from this vendor,what's the return policy like?
