Re: how engagement rings have changed over the last 100 year

Some things have changed but classic designs never go out of style.

My wedding ring is a late Victorian- early Edwardian 5 stone ring that I wear every day and still looks modern.

Re: Jewelry Etiquette from 1922

My husband wears french cuff shirts every day, therefore cufflinks.

He has quite a wardrobe of them, from monogrammed silver Tiffany cufflinks, to some novelty pairs like bikes and Volkswagon Kombis.

Re: What is your darkest thought and/or biggest fear?

My biggest fear is that my cancer will return. I don't want to die of cancer - I want to live to a ripe old age to see my children marry and have children of their own. This. I feel in my heart it will come back, I just hope it's much later rather than sooner. I have so much more yet to do. Other t...

Re: Wrinkles: Do beauty salon facials work?

I vote visit to the dermatologist. I have monthly microderm facials, occasionally combined with a Jessner peel. But that is for improving the texture of my skin rather than fighting wrinkles. Very few treatments will minimise or soften wrinkles. I'd say a combo of botox and fillers, and retinol and ...

Re: Bowie and rape culture

Also Sable Starr's version of that night is very different to Lori Mattix's - Sable Starr was conveniently dead when Lori Mattix...

Re: Etiquette visitors and pets?

My girl is the life of the party, but my boy is super shy so if we are having a gathering we put him in our bedroom with his food/water etc, he's much happier and less stressed that way.

I've had a few people with 'cat' allergies come to our house.. yeah, well - here's a Telfast for you.

Re: What to do about bitter sister

I have no helpful advice, but I do feel for you. My sister and I were always (to me) very close, I thought we were best friends. But in the last 5-10 years she has changed, becoming also bitter and hard. Almost a year ago we had a massive fight over an issue that made me realise she did not value me...

Re: How far would you go for a pet?

Financially, we would go a long way.

However I would never consider treatment to prolong an animal's life if it meant pain, suffering and fear to them.

Re: Would you get your hair color done at someone's home?

I had a mixed result. The cut was great, and I love the way she blow dried my hair, and I usually hate the way hairdressers dry my hair, pin flat against my head. I really like the foils, no tiger stripes. And it's quite soft, and very shiny. However, the all over colour is not what I wanted, the en...

Re: Wine for guests ... price?

Re: Experience with knee injury - torn meniscus and/or ACL?

I severed my ACL skiing 4 years ago, I had surgery - an artificial LARS graft.

And it's still never been the same, it's fine to walk, and ski on, ...

Re: Skin Troubles at 40

Re: Is this Tiffany Gold Infinity Ring Real?

I'm voting fake actually. To me, the print on the bag is slightly wonky, authentic Tiffany packaging is as perfect as their jewellery.
