Re: Jewelry shopping in Seoul?

I haven't been there in a very long time. But I do remember that there were some decent deals to be had 15 years ago. At the time a lot of the shops were carrying very delicate, feminine, pretty pieces. Not sure what the trends are there now.

Re: Do you eat like you should?

I feel I'm somewhere in the middle. I'm pretty good but could do better. I aim for organic and low fat but I also love chocolate and chips.

Thanks everyone!
I posted the info about her lost dog on a local community board called Nextdoor.com. My husband printed a few signs that can be put up in the neighborhood.

Re: Thought I would share

I like your new enhancers. The blue South sea pearl looks very nice with the baroque necklace and I love the mandala type enhancer. Is the center an amethyst or something else?

Re: San Francisco gem show this weekend!

I'm not sure this is where I would look for an engagement ring stone. There are a lot of booths with interesting stones, and I'm sure you can find some sapphires at this show. But I think if it's for an engagement ring you really want to be able to have a more to look at, come back to and compare to...

Re: San Francisco gem show this weekend!

Hi OTL. There are all types of vendors. I would say this show is on the smaller side. One of the highlights for me is the Himalayan tourmaline booth. That booth also has Oregon sunstone ( they own both mines ). They have been there the last three years, so I hope they will be there again this year. ...

Re: What are you wearing today?!

I found some pretty GSSP studs on Etsy (at least that us what the vendor says they are) but the price was pretty terrific so even if they are dyed freshwaters they are still pretty. they are 10mm http://www.pricescope.com/files/images/fullsizerender-94.jpg I like those. Makes me want a pair.
