Re: Do you have a jewelry budget each year?

Nope, my budget is usually whatever amount I can get away with before DH starts pulling out his hair. Haha. This year I did pretty well-2.21 OEC ring, .70 ctw OEC bezel bangle, .96 ctw OEC studs, and a few small OECs set aside for future projects. I think DH had just about reached his limit, it is ...

Re: Do you own nicer jewelry than your boss?

Well my boss is a 2 1/2 year old toddler so I would hope so! Although occasionally I catch her trying on my rings.... I was just going to say the same thing! My 3 year old and 1 year old are my bosses. I think my jewelry is better quality than my 3 year old's plastic princess jewelry, though some d...

Re: I have found THE ONE! 2.21ct OEC in an antique setting!

The 5 stone was AMAZING, it was hands down the most amazing suite of OECs I had ever seen. Grace did an amazing job putting that suite together. The finger coverage was amazing too! I loved that ring, but at the end of the day, I was a solitaire girl. In a perfect world I would have gotten the 2.21...
Re: Show me your jewelry boxes

I'm so excited to show off my jewelry box! It is a Korean lacquerware box with mother of pearl inlay depicting cranes - a very common theme. I purchased it in the Insadong district in Seoul.

Re: 2.5ct blue sapphire, 1.2ctw diamond sides in WF Butterfl

Wow!!! The color of your sapphire is amazing! I love the setting too, it is such a graceful design.
Re: Not your typical CvB Design contemporary semi bezel milg

It is such a beautiful diamond and the setting shows it off perfectly! I love how the point where the semi bezel ends, lines up perfectly with the channel set side stones. It gives the ring a very fluid, cohesive look and feel.
Re: Singlestone five stone french cut ring

Absolutely stunning!!!! :appl:

I especially love the details in the profile of the ring. Single Stone always seems to go above and being in making sure their rings are exquisite at every angle of viewing, it definitely shows in this beautiful ring! :love: :love: :love:

Re: I have found THE ONE! 2.21ct OEC in an antique setting!

It looks so divine armywife! The faceting is really awesome. I can see arrows in there, but with less precise symmetry, which creates that loveky "random" look in the patterning. But the optics are still there, I can totally see why you are in love! Now... "the one"... that's a ...

Re: Advice: which hand for wearing my five stone ring?

Another vote for your e-ring on the left hand and 5 stone on the right hand. That way you can enjoy both of the beautiful pieces all at once!

Re: I have found THE ONE! 2.21ct OEC in an antique setting!

I wasn't able to take many pictures the last few days, it turned into a very busy weekend! I did get a nice picture this morning during the sunrise - a perk of my 1 year old getting up at the crack of dawn. ;-) There are also a few pictures while I did homework, or rather, while I was distracting my...
