MissGotRocks: My boss has my back, and we have tried having her lay down the law and having me as the enforcer when she is away. that didn't work. I think it reiterated the fact that she is "THE" boss, and I'm just her watchdog with no bark or bite! I also feel that my delivery when I fin...

How do you manage people who are your friends too?

I'm in a tough situation, and would appreciate any kind of advice. In the past 5 years, my company has grown significantly and I have been promoted a couple times, where I'm now considered senior management. A lot of my peers now report to me, but they are people I go to lunch with daily, and invite...

Re: New to PS with 2 gorgeous OEC rings from JbG and CvB!

Welcome! Both your rings are beautiful. I have been bitten by the Old Cut bug as well....still shopping though.

Do you alternate and wear each by itself, or is one of these a "e-ring" the other a Right-hand ring?

Re: What do you miss most about being "young"?

What do I miss most about being "young"? Not much. I was a late bloomer and didn't have much confidence, and was just geeky and awkward. I also was not in the best shape because I ate like crap. Regarding the age I am now what do I love most? I love the life I have built with my husband, ...

Re: S.O.'s supportive of Jewelry/diamond passion?

I thought about this poll because just this week, I sent my dh at least 2 emails of OECs that I'm eyeing, and instead of shooting me down, he told me to go ahead if it makes me happy.

S.O.'s supportive of Jewelry/diamond passion?

There seem to be a lot of threads about significant others not being on board with upgrades, etc, so I'm wondering if PSers have more supportive other halves, or non-supportive other halves?

Re: Women who have unrealistic expectations

When I was in my early 20s I had a friend who only wanted to date a doctor or a lawyer, and said she would only get engaged to someone who proposed with a 3+ carat diamond. She was a classic gold digger. Fast forward 20 years, all of the gals in that particular group are married with kids in their t...
