I can't wait to see!
by yssie » Jul 20, 2019
@Bron357 If this is the ring I think it is... I confess I was eyeing it! But like the PSer who was regretfully letting it go - I would have hoarded it, terrified to size it. If it's found its finally-final home with you - well, if that isn't birthday kismet - it was meant to find you!!!!
Happy birthday and I can't wait to see your modelling photos!!!
Don't save it - you can't tease us like that, and as @madelise observed JOTW historically hasn't been chosen from only pieces posted that week

I was very surprised that a ring of mine was JOTW--and not when I first posted it. IMHO, The surprise makes it special.

WE NEEEEEEED PICS!!!!!! I am dying of curiosity, and you have such good taste that I'm sure it's gorgeous.

"You're terrible Muriel" Only Aussies will probably get that joke. (Reference - the Movie "Muriel's Wedding")....

And kiwis lol

Hahaha my dh and I say that to each other all the time. So New Yorkers get the joke too.

I LOL’d about waiting for a “quieter week!” As if that exists around here. I saw the other thread and OMG, what a masterpiece!
by Rfisher » Jul 21, 2019
For one to wait for what they think is a “quieter week”, speaks loudly for what one’s thoughts are of the other posters recent acquisitions.
Number of replies
Number of likes
Iconic pieces thread
How long a thread is kept on front page
Is all kinda driven by crowd popular opinion, and quite likely even friendships off board.
I kinda hope JOTW doesn’t evolve to mimic the same.
I agree this thread puts whomever is in ‘charge’ of JOTW in a rough spot.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY BRON!
Off to “Show Me The Bling”.

IMO, The Admin should post 3-4 pieces of jewelry from SMTB then PSers can vote for JOTW.
by ZestfullyBling » Jul 21, 2019
Happy B-Day and congrats on your new to you Treasure!!! Opals are special to me as my birthstone. Looking forward to hand shots!!
by arkieb1 » Jul 21, 2019
I don't think it should be a competition.... there are many beautiful pieces on here lets highlight or show off as many as possible.
by madelise » Jul 21, 2019
I find a flaw in that suggestion. The winners would always be a popular trend at the moment, so it would discount any styles that aren't very popular. People would also tend to vote for larger stones, so it would just be a homogenous bunch of JOTW.

I must admit have been off the boards for many years or very few post in three years until about 8 months ago I saw all these tags TBT and JOTW and didn’t know what it was all about until just recently. However, for me whenever I post it’s only when I was able to sit down and actually have some time and never did it occur to me and besides I don’t know how that was decided upon anyways lol so ignorance is bliss sometimes haha. I don’t have any notices send to my email so I probably would never know unless others would personally reach out.
You have amazing taste and collection and mad bidding skills
Hope you had an enjoyable birthday
by Bron357 » Jul 21, 2019
Dear All, my “hopes” are expressed tongue in cheek!
I mean of course I’d love a JOTW, I think many of us secretly hope that our special piece of jewellery will be “recognized” as being as “extra” special to the broader group.
I think my new (pre loved) opal ring is honestly to die for. It is the bees knees!
As an opal lover, as an admirer or exquisite workmanship and attention to detail, as a mature aged jewellery lover with thousands of purchases under my belt, this ring is MY Jewel of a Lifetime.
And my DH thinks it’s the ugliest ring he’s ever seen. He thinks it’s creepy with the branches and totally ridiculous to look at AND the opal isn’t a patch on my other opal.
So there you go.
by Weeivy73 » Jul 21, 2019
Haha Bron357! I think the dialogue in your house is the same as most pricescoper's houses....
Me: "Oh my look at these gorgeous ruby and diamond earrings!!!"
Hubs: "How many pairs of earrings do you need woman??!! You only have one set of ears!!"
Me: "Awww but....." Try my best puppy dog look while justifying the need to more earrings.
by kayla17 » Jul 22, 2019
No, not at all! I’ve never gotten jewelry of the week either, although to be honest, I’d rather get Employee of the Month bc I would get the best parking spot at work! It’s right by the entrance!
by missy » Jul 22, 2019
And there you have it. That is truly all that matters re your ring. That it is *your* dream ring and *your* jewel of a lifetime. Congrats and wear in health and blingy joy @Bron357.

I love to wake up to a good laugh!!!
by acaw2015 » Jul 22, 2019
I tend to think most of us who post in SMTB feel our own special piece we are posting is worthy of jewel of the week... otherwise we would probably have bought something else.
Enjoy your new piece, it is lovely!
by Ella » Jul 22, 2019
We understand the desire and are happy to hear that people want to get Jewel Of The Week. Letting us know about it will not affect our decision in any way, as others have said it would not be fair to select based on requests or votes.
The best way to be chosen is to take many great quality images and post on the Show me the Bling Forum

Happy birthday @Bron357 Off to SMTB
by Arkteia » Jul 25, 2019
Happy Birthday, Bron! What matters is the happiness you feel each time you view it. Positive emotions are good for our health. I wish you to get the coveted JOTW.
by ForteKitty » Jul 25, 2019
Wahhh how dare he! I laughed but I am offended! My husband agrees with him tho LOL
by kayla17 » Jul 25, 2019
Now that I am thinking about it, who has gotten the most JOTW’s? I want to say @Catmom probably?
