*shuns* haha

I had discovered it prior to even meeting my DH because I was engaged before and learned a lot from the site before I ever joined.

Before I discovered PS, I had my ring cleaned at a jewelery store two or three times a year and in between cleaned it with a toothbrush and toothpaste. And, I wouldn't have dreamed of inquiring about cut.

(you know like pocket money type of cash, not saying I dig into my savings or anything before anyone says anything :razz:)

I thought I was along in my obsession about jewelry--settings, cuts, stones, etc. Everyone's eyes would glaze over when I would try to explain my passion. And I sqee'd with pleasure whenI was in the Royal Jewelry forum and found Elizabeth I's ring which had a secret compartment that stored a minature of her mother. I've become obsessed about finding a duplicate.

...I didn't care much about diamonds
...I thought a 3/4 carat was the perfect size for me :wink2:
...I knew nothing about cut, tables, crown angles, pavilion angles, and lower girdle facets
...I had more spare cash :))

- I scoffed at the saying, 'diamonds are a girls best friend' (only to now realize it's quite true..)
- I didn't know what a hearts and arrow diamond was, I figured it was a brand name.
- I had no clue what cut and clarity meant.
- I didn't even know GIA and AGS certs existed.
- We almost bought our engagement ring from Overstock.com! :sick:

Before I discovered PS, I spent a lot of money buying rings from home shopping channels. :oops:
