    In honor of Election Day in the U.S. on Tuesday, show your bling alongside US landmarks or regional beauty. What you consider “blah” or mundane views may be unusual and inspiring to others!

    Political posts can be found in Hangout—this thread is for bling only! :whistle:

    My submission—amber waves of grain and an actual white picket fence! :lol: Coming to me from the mountains and valleys of Idaho all the way to the plains of the Midwest—0.80 H VVS2 CBI from High Performance Diamonds!

    Extra credit for sports stadiums—for some reason, those venues are incredible for bling!

    Well, I can't do a sports stadium, but here's my own American icon - the classic 50's diner! I have breakfast here most days of the week; 2 scrambled eggs with sauteed mushrooms and 2 cups of coffee. :))

    And my newest ring - firstly, on another American icon!

    And one last one, so you can see a glimpse of another American icon; New England in the fall! You can see just a hint of the spectacular color palette through the window.

    I can't go outside today, so no landmark, but surely the ring box with engagement ring is an icon! My James Allen red ring box and with white and blue, my Red White & Blue!

    In honor of this thread, taken just a few minutes ago from my office on this rainy election Tuesday!

    A little red, white and blue with the Hancock Building.

    This stadium pic probably doesn’t count since my bling isn’t included, but I took this when TR and I were at the Northwestern / Notre Dame game on Saturday night. (He and I both went to NU, although I was done the year he started.) How those parachuters get the flag perfectly landed on the field ever time is beyond me!

    LOL Mrs. B, I've got some decent views here. The one of the Hancock is the view from my actual office. I had to go into the lobby to get the Sears Tower because it's on the opposite side of the building. To the receptionist's credit, she didn't even bat an eye while I was standing over by the window with my hand up in the air taking pics!

    Lol! Maybe the receptionist plays here. If I saw someone doing that I wouldn't bat an eyelash either because I do the same thing.

    Love all the eye candy in this thread! :love:

    This is my sapphire ring in AT&T Stadium in Dallas, I thought it looked purdy under the bright lights...but it doesn't show the stadium so I added another pic!
