I want to thank the moderators for this site, it has been helpful beyond words. I also want to thank anyone who ever took the time to answer a question, as all mine were answered by you as I searched, and researched.

I went through B&M hell to end up with what I have now, purchsed online. While I wouldn''t ever want to do it again, I have no regrets, as I now have these beautiful baubles bought from great vendors at fantastic prices.

I purchased my ring 5 months ago. The reason it''s taken so long to post is because my monitor was going out and I had no idea what all my pics looked like. After I got the new one, I didn''t like a lot of them, so I shot a bunch more.

I wish these were better quality, but I did the best I could with what I had to work with. I really don''t think hubby would have understood the need to replace our camera that''s only a few years old just to take pics of my ring and brand new earrings. I have pretty many, but not near as many as some, so I guess I''m ok, I''ll only be doing this once. I hope you enjoy looking at them.

I''ll post my earrings first.
