Re: Vent/Rage of the day thread

I am going to lose my marbles. Our new windows are in, and set to be installed on Thursday. I had a whole "schedule" for this weekend of us taking the blinds down and putting trash bags up to keep peeping nosy neighbors from looking in, and any wandering snoops from coming up and checking ...

Re: Show us your Mrs. Box with your rings!

Their size was the draw for me. But I also value the quality, the really lovely antique velvets and the colors.

Re: My ruby project is in motion---DBTY style necklace

Good point. Ill test this out with the string and make sure before I give them the go-ahead. My goal was really to make sure it just looks like floating rubies, and I like uniformity.

I only have 4 rubies. I supplied those. So if I do that, I'd only be using 3 of the rubies, 4 diamonds and be making the spread wider. Which isn't a problem though it would just leave one unused.

I work in this industry and I despise when event sites pull this stuff--so much so that I steer couples away from sites that do it and make a point to negatively review the ones that do it.

My ruby project is in motion---DBTY style necklace

My rubies have been checked out and we are back and forth discussing layout. I THINK it's been decided on, but I'd like to make sure that my gut isn't deceiving me... 18" necklace. Starting the stones at 1" and moving in 2" increments alternating rubies with diamonds. All stones are 3...

Consider getting rid of your hands, they clutter up the arms

This link is hilarious. It's basically mocking the Mario Kondo sensation, but I was laughing out loud at a few of these.

Re: In dire need of tried and true opinion on price of resiz

Your budget might not be realistic for what you want. But you're going to pay more in the end to get a stock ring resized than it will cost to just get it custom made to size because the upkeep when you resize a ring that much is going to me monumental with stones coming loose.
