    • I’m going crazy because I got more than I thought and I have a big birthday coming up so he wrote in my card that it would be a great birthday because it’s a special birthday. My mind is swimming..and I would love to have a larger diamond but I’m not going to trade mine in..I’m looking at cluster rings but I want it to be in good shape..so debated about having one made...Then I’m getting cheapy because I thought I could get a moissy one which is pretty which frees me up to get more diamonds! My birthday is in two weeks and I don’t know how much mad money I’ll get then..My fun is to always buy what I want throughout the year and spread it out so I’m hesitant to spend it all in a lump sum.. :think:

    My husband used to buy me jewelry that was really ugly..and it progressed from me telling him that I would like to go with him to buy the jewelry to now me getting mad money to buy my own which is the best..because I’m a bargain hunter and like to get the most from my mad money..
    This year I got this card..with more than I thought I would get. I guess I was a good girl this year. He signed his name and then crossed it out and it said Santa! This is so sweet!

    Omg, I got a little ultrasonic cleaner as well this year and I am ~obsessed. For the first time in forever, I got all the makeup gunk out from the nosepad of my glasses! (And my jewelry comes out super sparkly like new every time, so that's a bonus too.) :lol:

    AB, I felt compelled to clarify my post to you. I meant it in a kidding but genuine way. I was not meaning to mock you. I really meant, bummer! I maybe should have put one of these with it -----> ;))

    I learned, after many years of not being so sure, that if Hubby thinks you're worth it and deserve to be treated special, YOU ARE WORTH ITAND DESERVE TO BE TREATED SPECIAL! Congratulations on your new tank. Its lovely!

    @Monnyjay I seriously can't! I haven't been this excited about a jewellery purchase for ages...largeish bling purchases are few and far between these day with two little people. It will be totally worth it I'm sure!

    Last year I bought myself diamond studs from IDJ. Still love them.

    This year I bought myself a pretty Mystic Fire Topaz ring at Kohls. ( dont cringe! Lol! ). Supposedly retail is $250 I would not have paid that, but, by the time they threw every Kohls discount on it..I paid $64. Yeah, I realize this is a treated stone and yes, maybe I would have been able to buy it cheaper on Etsy but I dont really care. I liked it..I bought it. I will treat it gingerly. Had they had a $15 one on the costume table in my size I would have bought it. I am still enjoying the studs from last Christmas.


    Love seeing the holiday blings! Keep sharing!

    It sounded like you intended it to sound..There are other things that I get for Christmas that I love that aren’t jewelry related. My best present this year was the card from my husband with the little plastic red hearts on the card. It’s a keeper!

    Yeah, no bling for me. I maxed out way too early in the year. And I ended up with a non-bling item that wasn't planned so bling has been pushed to the back burner for now. It feels good to take a break.

    I am very much enjoying everyone's treasures. Congratulations and keep them coming!

    My husband gave me 1/2 ctw diamond huggies from blue Nile and my daughter regift me the .28 ctw I got for her from loupetroop. Apparently she doesn't like studs of any kind. It took 25 photos to get a somewhat decent ear shot, and I realized I have weird crooked ears:shock:.

    I'm sorry it's huge! How do you resize photos?

    That happened to me at the beginning of this year..I spent my bling fund by April and even went over..but not by much..It was a painful long stretch for me! :razz: Now I have funds again and my birthday is in two weeks so I can finally get bling again..but I have paralysis..I’m afraid of making an expensive mistake.

    No apologies necessary. Many of us are old, with old eyes. Big is better. :lol: ;)) And you can put your picture in an editing program on your computer to resize. i.e. Paint, etc.

    Beautiful earrings!
