    I’ll start - lovely white gold filigree floral diamond eternity band to stack with my e-ring! It’s not BK but it looks very similar. I love it!

    I got my cognac diamond! Specs still forthcoming, my husband displaced the paperwork. I paired it with my current favorite whiskey (Bob Dylan does just as well in alcohol as he does in music!) and it’s a perfect match! <3 I carry cocktail hour with me regularly now, and for those PSers who have southern family, they know how important that can be. Great job, DH! 5F1F28F8-E763-4698-8F6D-8A4CCF51B065.jpeg 1BF184FB-314C-48FC-A57A-B5A9F1F1D3E8.jpeg 87492C06-14D7-4B95-8C04-712239691E49.jpeg d

    Great presents. I got some small but great color EC emerald studs. I have a small EC emerald RHR and wanted earrings to match.

    I didn't get anything bling-related this year for Christmas, but have enjoyed seeing all of the great gifts you all received - thanks for posting your photos and sharing your treasures!

    I have specifically asked that my husband not do any jewel shopping for a while, as I cannot wear all the lovelies he has given me. I did wear some past gifts, however, and received a very special gift that I had hoped would be waiting for me. IMG_0177.JPG I had mentioned months ago that this was something special that I wanted. It is jewelry for a true bibliophile! IMG_0180.JPG

    My baby AVR - .64 ct E VS2 in custom DKJ platinum setting with tiny diamond at the back of the band and another one in the donut. One day it will go with a matching stone either side of my Jeff White 7.4mm yellow sapphire. But for now - it's sitting where it is. :)

    Well I got this...and if anyone knows me this is perfect. Plus a little something extra that I'll do a separate thread on when I get the paperwork.

    I got this pretty thing. Not sure what bands to pair it with but for now I like it with the two I have in the picture. I’ll probably try to find an engraved yellow gold band.

    I got a sweet little oval in a three stone platinum Ritani setting. Oval is .61 carats, G color, SI1- nothing much compared to a lot of the bling on the board, but I think it’s perfect for “less is more” days ❤️

    54BBC7A9-BF50-4D7B-8837-D64324EC503D.png I didn’t get bling. I didn’t ask for any and hubby knows I would return it like I did the last piece he gave me. Sometimes, like this year, I feel like I have hit my limit of expensive gifts already. However, I did as for one thing, and it is so amazing, I have to share it with you.

    It is a new ultrasonic cleaner. I have had them before, and haven’t been very impressed. In fact, I have two older ones sitting in my closet. (Time to throw them out!) I am not sure why I wanted to try another. But I saw this one online at Costco and asked for it. It seems to have sold out, but I found it on another site so you could see the brand.I will post the photo.

    I clean my jewelry regularly, in fact, every night. This machine uses plain water and when I was done the water was dirty! I couldn’t believe it. Afterwards, I used the steamer and all of my pieces haven’t looked this good since brand new. Holy cow,I am amazed.

    It also cleaned my silver. It rocks. So if anyone is looking for a new ultrasonic with a steamer, keep an eye out on Costco.com for a great price.
    It is a little larger than most but I am ok with that after using it.

    I also got a lovely jewelry case by Lily & Drew (from amazon) from one of my boys. It is so well padded, it will be perfect to take a little more bling on the road when we travel in our RV.

    I got attempted bling. I think that counts. My husband got me a jewelry box, because I wanted a bigger one, but he got me exactly the same one I already have, so it went back to the mall this morning.

    IMG_0044.jpg

    I also got this strand of golden south seas, but I have seriously no occasion to wear something like this. I hate to return it, but I think it's destined to be someone else's.

    Funny story: after thanksgiving, I purchased two Cartier tank watches to see if I liked them- a python solo and a tank solo, both gently used from fashionphile. I sent the python back nearly immediately— I didn’t like that it had no numbers on it. It bothered me much more than I thought it would.

    I liked the tank solo but didn’t even look at it much— it sat in my closet because I have received/purchased a ridiculous amount of things this year.

    I had decided that while I loved the tank solo, 1) it was too much money on top of too much money spent on me this year and 2) we are paying for an involved decade plus probate case my MIL is a defendant in and it is finally going to trial in January (she will win, but we have to pay for a trial now) and 3) I probably would rather cushion shape earring jackets a la BG.

    So I sent it back and fashionphile received it back on the 24th. DH never knew about this lol.

    Then DH gives me this :mrgreen2:
    39B30D88-0275-4698-A807-592024D046F3.jpeg

    :whistle::lol::appl: Brand new :appl:

    I objected as soon as I saw the shape of the box. Too much money I said.

    He insisted. So now I have a Cartier tank solo :dance:
