Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

I think after buying your diamond e-ring, you maybe read for a while, form some friendships, maybe buy one or two more pieces, but then eventually move on. People get married, buy houses, have kids, etc. There is not a lot of time for reading on a diamond site anymore, and I suspect a lot of people ...

CrimsonQueen, I have also told the customers of DanielM that they need to stop being nice and get tough with him.

Re: Options for my 9 stone band, please help out.

Oh you sound so much like me! I got engaged/married in 2008 and have gone through countless resets, diamonds, rings, bands, etc. It is insane how crazy (and what a waste of money) it all was looking back. Now I am content with just a plain band, and it feels so freeing!! Maybe that would be best for...

MP, mine was really high at 11 weeks, and I still got AF 29 days later. You might be one of the 'lucky' ones who has AF return relatively quickly.

Re: Setting an antique cushion: Sholdt's 14k VS 18K RG?

Gold is naturally yellow and 18k rose is still 75% pure gold, so that is why it will be less coppery than 14k. 14k is only 58% pure gold; the other 42% is comprised of alloys. 18k rose is pretty subtle; some people say they can't tell it's rose until it's put next to a yellow gold piece.

Re: Setting an antique cushion: Sholdt's 14k VS 18K RG?

14k is pinker but also more coppery since the copper content is generally higher in 14k than 18k. 18k will be more of a blush/apricot hue.

Not only do these fans not care, they openly defend "their" players and give them standing ovations when they come on the field. So disgusting.

Aww, MP, I'm so sorry. It's hard enough to go through infertility, but to have a loss of a much-wanted baby hurts beyond belief. I was so hoping you were wrong. I am proud of you for being your own advocate and for insisting on getting seen sooner.

Re: KUDOS to the NFL for firing player for domestic violence

How about Ray Lewis? It's disgusting that all those fans idolized him too after what he did. He was definitely involved in some way with a murder.

Re: Reset ideas for 1 ct round diamond?

I personally think the Anne Marie would be beautiful. I can't imagine why it wouldn't suit a one carat; that is a nice sized stone! I am not a fan of wearing two rings together either, and I think the Anne Marie would be very sophisticated and have a lot of presence on its own.

Are they also monitoring your progesterone? If it's going up or staying steady, that's at least a good sign. That was one of my red flags, that mine had gotten so low.

MP, I know exactly how you're feeling. I saw a heartbeat, they assured me everything was fine even though I was measuring behind and I had a bad feeling, and sure enough I did end up miscarrying.

Just size it and wear it IMO. I don't get what switching to a 7 or a 5 stone band would do. I think the finger coverage would be less, plus it would be a hassle.
