Re: Favorite winter gear?!

Where (approximately) are you in the 'mid-Atlantic' area? I'm in central NC, and rarely need more than a decent winter coat & gloves for the cold months (Jan-Feb), and I only wear "snow" boots if we head to the mountains. We don't usually get much snow here, and when we do, it's usual...

Re: Will you get a flu shot this fall?

I meant to add that my sister has cancer and is immuno-compromised so those of us around her want to keep her as healthy as possible. Also, a couple of years ago, both of my elderly parents got the flu. My mom was ok, but my dad got a secondary infection and we were worried he was going to die. It w...

Re: Will you get a flu shot this fall?

Yes. I get one and so do my kids. My husband chooses not to. So far, no one has gotten the flu since we've been married and had kids.

Re: Show me your pregnancy/baby jewelry!

My husband surprised me with a Cartier Tank Solo watch that I'd had my eye on, but never dreamed I'd own. One of my kids was adopted and one is bio, so it's more like a present to commemorate our children rather than a push/pregnancy present. Their names and birthdates are engraved on the back. One ...

Re: Help with unpleasant side effects of chemo

Please check with the doctor before using any OTC drug to stop the diarrhea. The diarrhea is a side effect of the chemo and is maybe the body's way of flushing it out of the system-so you may not want to stop it suddenly with Lomotil and have the chemo stay in the body longer than necessary-pretty ...

Sorry- I should've been clearer and less delicate- she's having terrible, terrible diarrhea, not nausea. Her appetite is still quite good, but not matter what she eats, it comes out the other end almost immediately.

I work in Chinatown and would avoid it too. There's nothing uniquely DC about it, although if you like ramen, they have a terrific ramen restaurant there.

Re: Cathedral setting vs... not cathedral setting.

I have a cathedral Emilya- my husband really preferred it with the shoulders so that was what I went with. Stability never entered my mind, but I assume VC knows what he's doing since the non-cathedral Emilya is the classic standard.

David Klass amethyst solitaire

I've recently received my David Klass 18kt rose gold 4.19ct amethyst solitaire, and I love it. I know this is a familiar setting to many here on PS; I modified it slightly to make the profile scrolls smaller with no surprise diamond. This is a large stone (to me!) at 10mm and I wanted it to sit as l...

Yes, David Klass did the setting. My first piece by him! The stone is from Gemart Services and is 4.19ct and 10mm.

Re: Have people experienced stones falling out of their ring

I have a VC Emilya and haven't lost any stones, though I've only had mine since 2014.

I did have a three-sided pave colored stone halo that lost a few stones; it was made by a local jeweler.

The stone would darken too much with the gallery as-is?

I do want to get rid of the scrolls on the gallery- if I did that, would that open up things to better complement the stone?

Re: Help with gold color for prongs for 18kt RG amethyst rin

Amethyst can be a tricky stone (in a good way) as it can be complimented by each metal color. It really depends on the mood/tone of your piece and skin color. I think that rose gold suits your skin tone and the stone's colors very well. It would be a safe route and very gorgeous in a timeless way. ...

Re: Help with gold color for prongs for 18kt RG amethyst rin

You cannot go wrong with rose gold but I loooove the 22k yellow gold. However... whatever your heart tells you will be the right choice. I have chosen rose gold myself and have not regretted it. But I love your pics with high kt yellow gold. The Ammy seems to get extra oomph. I love 22kt gold too.....

Gorgeous stone and ring design! I would indeed keep the prongs on the shank and make a different choice for the profile/head.
