Re: How to comfort someone who is grieving?

Some thoughts from the perspective of someone who unexpectedly lost a longtime partner: Right now, I would imagine your brother is still completely numb, and doesn't really know what hit him. It's a lot to take in at once, and often, our psyches just won't let that happen. It will take time for the ...

I cannot even imagine how his gf feels. Honestly? Possibly some relief that she never married him. I doubt this was a first time act of craziness or impulsion.

Re: WOW (shocked and not in a good way).

For the sake of being completely honest and real, the poor woman involved in the argument with the deceased will probably be haunted for life. Most survivors are riddled with guilt, wondering what more they could have done to keep their loved ones from killing themselves. The fact that this man kil...

Yssie, that picture is adorable!

Here's a few crappy iphone pics of the dbty. The little charm says "love you always."

And look at the top left corner of the second picture....I had a helper!

Re: OMG - DBTY from BGD!

Katiedid, your necklace is beautiful! I'd love to see a neck shot if you can swing it.

Now that you have it, is there anything you would have done differently? Are you happy with the length of the chain and the spacing of the stones?

Re: I just wanna say -- the random comments thread

Missy- great news! I'm sure you and your husband are both very relieved! Rosetta - so glad your husband is okay. I had to do the Heimlich on a friend once, she was choking on a malted milk ball. It was a scary situation for me, so I can only imagine how scared and shook up you and your husband felt!

Re: bezel earring/dbty necklace questions

Efriede, thanks again for the information! So, your necklace has 5 stones, right? If you spaced them 1.5 to 1.75 inches apart, you'd have some chain towards the back that wouldn't have any stones. Is that correct? I'm assuming since your necklace stays put pretty well, that wouldn't be a point of co...

Re: bezel earring/dbty necklace questions

Hi! :wavey: i think the idea of graduated dbty is wonderful. I absolutely love mine and can say that again: my necklace never migrates so the clasp is in front. The center stone is maybe sometimes 2-3 cm off the center. I also have 16 inches necklace and it is a tad longer for my taste but I am afr...

Hi Okie_girl, I have martini style and bezel style earrings. They are both very comfortable, but I hate sleeping in earrings, as they poke behind my ears.

Re: bezel earring/dbty necklace questions

You might need to try on some other necklaces you have that would be the right length and measure them. 16"would be right for me if I wanted it right at the base of my neck, but it depends on your neck size, I guess! I'd probably discouraged a graduated dby, though, because it would kind of dr...

Hello all- I am looking to reset some earrings, they are currently in yellow gold basket type settings and I would like to bezel them in white gold.
