Re: How many times have you upgraded your E-ring..

In the past 10 years, only once.

however, we've been married 15 years this year, and I upgraded once in the first 5 years.

so total 2X

Different settings for each upgrade. So I've had 3 different stones and 3 different settings.

Re: Detail pics of multipurpose Jewelry

Amazing pieces! I love that they can all be worn in multiple ways. I have never seen jewelry pieces like that here in the US. Who is the designer, and were are they based?

Re: who paid for your upgrade?

Technically, the upgrades were paid by our joint account, but I make over double what my husband makes so I called the shots. I just tell him....bonus coming in March, time for an upgrade :) However, I don't usually upgrade jewelry (much), I also upgrade appliances, car, house. This year I have plan...

Re: My Engagement Ring, 1st and Final Upgrade (I promise!)

It's probably just the cut. There's old stones have that cut, I think. In any event, they look beautiful. Congratulations on the anniversary - and the beautiful rings. For me, it was more about the color descriptions. The larger diamonds were lower in color supposedly, yet look whiter in the pictur...

Re: After you kick the bucket...

I asked my kids tonight, and my son (12) and daughter (10) said unanimously that it should go to my daughter. When I asked them why, he said he'll buy his wife diamonds. My daughter just said they're hers because she is my daughter, if I give it to my son, he'll give it away to his wife.

Re: Does your hubby wear a wedding band?

My husband wears 95% of the time, the only time he takes it off is when he's at the gym, and that is where he lost his platinum comfort fit band a few years ago. He now wears a titanium non-comfort fit band that he says is really uncomfortable, but it has save his finger from being crushed by heavy ...

What are you frugal with?

Since most PSers seem to put their money into bling, in what areas would you consider yourself to be frugal with?

For me:
Clothing (love outlets and discount stores)
Make-up (drugstore brands)
Vacations (usually paid company trips become pseudo vacations)
Hair (color myself, cut 2x a year)

Just an observation. I work at a large corporation with a lot of female executives. Surprisingly, none of them wear huge diamonds that reflect their >300K a year salaries.

Re: Do you feel heavier than you weigh?

I found the picture to illustrate how you can be at the ideal weight according to charts, but feel flabby and big...it's all about the composition of your body, is it more fat or muscle? Exercise helps a lot! I'm 140+ of pure muscle (me thinks :cheeky: )

Re: Stuffing:how do you make it?

I buy Mrs. Cubbison's corn bread stuffing, follow box instructions for the most part, except I add breakfast sausage, and I bake in a dish instead of stuffing in a turkey. I like my stuffing to be dryer and crispier on top, and I can't achieve that stuffed inside a turkey.
