    How could Louis CK be back with 71% of his 2019 shows sold out?

    I saw him live the year before all the news came out and it was hard to square his humor with his behavior other than to realize fame/money/power enable people to think their bad behavior is ok. from what i've read the new show is not a monologue of contrition, more like "get over it already"...

    Platinum Ring has a black mark - Please help me understand what this is

    The jeweler who made the ring should be able to buff that out

    Do you filter your selfies?

    I don't tend to take a lot of selfies or filter my photos but some phone cams do automatically when they detect a selfie..."beauty filter" a la old school hollywood :lol:

    Feeling gloomy - advice about where to get ring made

    If the import duty is a big problem, perhaps you have the stone shipped inset, with the setting as a separate item or in a separate delivery, and have it set locally? Stuller as mentioned above is a good & cost effective option.

    Menu suggestions for brunch menu...Please?

    That sounds yummy. One more idea fwiw.... dollar sized pancakes in a couple of different flavors, they can be healthy (protein pancakes) and it's easy to make a fruit compote to use as topping instead of maple syrup. Have a great time :)

    Am I going to regret keeping this eternity band?

    It looks perfect with your e-ring. Enjoy and if it ever doesn't fit in the future you won't take much of a hit if you sell it since you found it preloved. Win-win :)

    "Inspired by": Antique ring mashed with a Mege basket question

    mine went straight to CAD from my franken-sketches. I think you'll know once you see the CAD if it's working or not and can decide from there if you need a designer. good luck!

    "Inspired by": Antique ring mashed with a Mege basket question

    i think because the diameter varies depending on where you take the measurement. 7.97 x 8.36 x 5.42 would indicate to me a cushion or other elongated shape. i'm not sure though. i think she is referring to the "wonkiness" - it not being perfectly round - as a result of the recut

    +1 for contacting the vendor and seller just in case. Amazon sometimes will hust take care of it if it's a relatively inexpensive item.

    Tiffany & Co. 16 stone Jean Schlumberger ring

    Totally agree. How abut getting a costume replica to wear for a few days? It won't be as heavy but would give an idea...

    Did Hillary Clinton really tweet this to The Donald?

    How many years has it been and I still can't believe the way twitter is used by politicians in general, especially trump. I'd get fired in my job for being so unprofessional... :rolleyes:

    Tiffany & Co. 16 stone Jean Schlumberger ring

    Is there a Tiffany store nearby so you can try one? I found it too bulky/prickly between the fingers but eternities aren't comfy for me in general. That's such a classic design, good luck with the hunt!

    You can only have ONE ring, which one would you keep?

    Thanks @StephanieLynn it was made by a local jeweler but the basket is kind of similar. Those 2 pieces are the ones i'd try to grab in a fire if there was time after securing the people & animals =)

    You can only have ONE ring, which one would you keep?

    the one in my avatar photo b/c it is from my hubby. before that one, my answer would have been the ring from my aunt b/c it was a gift from her....but now it's a pendant so i guess i get to keep both in this scenario? those are my 2 sentimental pieces.

    "Inspired by": Antique ring mashed with a Mege basket question

    Oh no, just being a little cheeky b/c i think adding milgrain instantly gives a puece an antique vibe. :) like, just add water I think you're changing the design enough not to worry btw, good luck with the project!

    "Inspired by": Antique ring mashed with a Mege basket question

    Just add milgrain kidding :) Softening the "w" shape to more of a crescent could help give it a less modern and less "mege" look. Maybe take a look at erika winters' settings, i think there are a couple with swoopy baskets and hers do look a bit antiquey. .
