    My re-set! 4.9 cttw 3-stone antique cushion ring, by Mark T and CVB

    Awww, thanks so much for the sweet compliments! I admit that I'm constantly distracted by my ring. My kids and husband roll their eyes and say "Oookaaay Mom" whenever they catch me staring at my hand. :lol-2: I'm waiting with bated breath for YOUR Caysie/OWD creation!! The ring will have all...

    A Tale of Two E-Rings

    CONGRATULATIONS!! Your proposal story is so full of love and joy and gratitude. (Is someone chopping onions in here??) Your fiance made a fine choice in that stone - I love the fiery rainbow flashes and the elegantly minimal low-profile setting complements it so well! So happy for you!

    Show me those yellow gold 80's and 90's pieces

    This thread is so much fun! I see pieces like these posted by antique/vintage IG sellers every day. What's old is new again. :-)

    SW OTK boots

    They look awesome on you, Gussie! We're the same height and my 5050s land on the same spot on my leg. I have the leather version but your pics are making me want the suede version, too!

    What is the most adventurous thing you ever did?

    Moving to a new city all the way across the country at age 24 without a job or apartment lined up, and without knowing a single soul. It was a huge gamble but also a valuable crash course in learning how to be independent and self-sufficient. And I had a ton of fun along the way. :mrgreen2:

    Yummy vanilla 1.93ct R AVC

    That is going to be drop-dead gorgeous!! Excellent choice -- it's really going to play up your stone while also giving you a lovely antique aesthetic. And the two-tone metals are a perfect complement!

    Do you filter your selfies?

    OMG. ME. TOO. It isn't just my nose that blushes, it's my face, too! Soooo embarrassing, especially while making presentations at work. I hate public speaking and without fail, I go beet red the entire time...which I can feel as it's happening and it makes me even more nervous, which causes my...

    Do you filter your selfies?

    I don't take selfies cuz I look terrible in them but @missy - love your cute pink nose! I'm a fellow pink-noser, too -- it "blushes" at every little thing, the slightest chill in the air, a sneeze, watery eyes, etc. LOL.

    Best gift your DH/SO ever bought for you

    A pair of super-frumpy Nike slip-on sneakers for Valentine's Day, while we were engaged. I wore them for the next 13 years until they fell apart. They were stunningly ugly but really practical and COMFY. They came in handy while I was raising babies (and didn't have enough hands to lace up my...

    SW OTK boots

    I LOVE my 5050s! I have average-sized fairly muscular calves, and average length legs for my height (5'2"). They do run a tad wide in the toe box, which works great for my troll feet, but they're not so wide that they'd look odd on anyone with slimmer feet.

    Gray Spinel and Diamond Ring + Capsule Jewelry Wardrobe

    Oh man, what a gorgeous spinel! It's so unique and elegant!!! And I love the steeliness-with-a-touch-of-lavender shade of the stone, if I'm reading the color right. You know you'll have a winner no matter what if you're lucky enough to acquire a @mrs-b piece!!! And I love it with your wedding...

    Suggestions for wedding band to pair with solitaire OMC

    Are you referring to the rosie eternity band that I linked? It is gorgeous, isn't it? I do recommend Caysie if you're going for an antique, patinated look. She specializes in that aesthetic 8)

    Show me your right hand!

    How gorgeous! Thanks for the close-up, @luxe !! Looks like it could be a very delicate beaded effect. I can imagine what a versatile band it is since it goes with everything and adds that subtle touch of rich, buttery gold. Love it!

    My re-set! 4.9 cttw 3-stone antique cushion ring, by Mark T and CVB

    Thanks, Sarah! I'm so happy with this ring! Thank you for the kind words! LOL. That's what I said when I opened the box!! Coming from you, the queen of sublimely perfect 3-stones, this means a lot!!! Thank you, @mrs-b !! Aw, thank you so much! Caysie and Mark nailed it!! Thank you for...

    Am I going to regret keeping this eternity band?

    How beautiful is that?!! I have coveted that exact band myself! What I've learned over the last 1-2 years is that weather-related swelling gets worse with age, even if your body weight, knuckle size, and finger size do not change. I have two diamond eternity bands that fit my ring finger...

    Suggestions for wedding band to pair with solitaire OMC

    I'm from the "anything goes" camp! Your preferences may change over time (mine did) so best thing to do is to experiment, try a bunch of different w-bands on, see what you like, and don't fret over it too much because chances are you'll end up collecting more bands in the years to come anyway...

    GORGEOUS! My eye was immediately drawn to your YG band. Is that milgrain I see? So delicate and pretty!
