Absolutely gorgeous! Happy Birthday and Anniversary! Those are two iconic pieces to celebrate such significant milestones. Enjoy them!
Thank you For your kind words, Horsegirl76
The horse in your avatar is beautiful!!
50 really is a big change. It feels much older than 40. But I’m homing it feels much healthier. I can’t believe we’ve been married for 25 years. I was 18 when we started dating, and time just flew by.

What a beautiful way to celebrate your birthday and anniversary! Congratulations!! Your ring and bracelet are equally spectacular.

May I ask where you got the bracelet from? I love the 3 prong setting.
Thank you for the compliments, facetgirl
The bracelet is from IDJewelry. It’s the 10 carat 3 prong tennis bracelet, but mine is 8.7 carats because it’s only 6”.

It is so good to "see" you around here again! I have always admired your jewelry, and these new pieces are outstanding additions! The ring is a dream ring, and the bracelet is a gorgeous classic! Wonderful gifts to celebrate two important events! I am sorry to hear of your health issues and certainly hope you'll feel better and get the treatment you need. Did you use local jewelers for these? That ring setting is really beautifully designed!
Hi DS!:wavey:
It’s good to “see” you too! Thanks for the compliments on the jewelry, and for you kindness regarding my health. I hope that you and your family are healthy and well.

Bez Ambar made the ring. I have always been a fan of his work, and follow him on Instagram. I have one other piece of his, which is a heart with his signature blaze diamonds. He does a lot of halos with the blaze, which I would have chosen if I didn’t already have the French cuts for the sides. His work is really beautiful, and they were amazing to work with. I think they did a great job.

These are beautiful!!!! Happy birthday and congratulations on your silver anni

Your story got me in tears. I too suffer from autoimmune disease. Sjögren syndrome. It’s a struggle everyday. Every month I would be sick of something. It could be a cold, flu, sinus infection, bronchitis, etc. Now that we’re in quarantine, I haven’t had any a flare up.

It was the reason why I couldn’t get pregnant naturally. I had to undergo some operation and hormon treatment then mid 2019 my daughter was born. She is the light of my days. It wasn’t easy to be pregnant with her but it was worth it.

Congratulations again and best of luck with your health.
Hi Joelly,
Sjögren’s is one of mine too. It’s a tough one to get a handle on. The hydroxychloroquine made me so sick, and I had to take lots of steroids which lowered my immunity, and then I got shingles. It was awful.

I’m so glad that you were able to get pregnant and now have a beautiful daughter! I wish you continued good health and happiness.
