Like a few of you, I received an ultrasonic/Magnasonic machine. This is my first, and so far, I’m super pleased with the results!!!
I also finally received the Gemology Starter Kit I’ve wanted for the past 3 years!!

I’m looking forward to unlocking what this kit has to offer!!!
I’ve been off of work for the holiday, spending real quality time with my family.
That has been my most precious gift, this holiday season.
Tonight, we celebrate a new year & my birthday (01/01/2019). I’m thrilled to be cozy, at home, with those closest to me to ring in the New Year & Celebrate my birthday!!!
Blessings to everyone for a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous & Blingy New Year!!
*I’m hoping to set the wheels in motion on my blingy project, in 2019! Fingers crossed!!!* :kiss2:
Happy birthday to one of the nicest and most positive people on this forum! Why does it not surprise me that you're a New Year's baby?! :P2

You are such a sweetheart!! I guess there are pros & cons to being born on NYD: my folks weren’t too keen on the fact that they missed a tax break in 1974, since I was born 1/1/1975....lol!!!
This community is so amazing!!!
Happy New Year, @KristyDarling!!! :kiss2:

@Matthews1127 I'm secretly stalking you to see how your 7 stone Asscher cut band comes out. I have read your threads, and think this would make a great wedding band.. I'm remembering Yoram for sure! I think I might have a sight problem though, I want one of everything!

I’m a little late to the Christmas bling party, but wanted to share mine too. My husband and I met on Christmas, and later married on Christmas, so it’s an extra special time of year for us. When we married, it was a second go for both of us and we literally became the Brady Bunch over night as we had six between us (and custody of everyone). At the time, we chose to skip rings, buy a house, and find an “Alice”. Well, this year we celebrated our 7th anniversary and my sweet husband decided it was time to put a ring on it. My Christmas/anniversary/E-ring bling is below...a 2.074ct J VS1 Canera antique cushion in the vintage French cut halo setting and it’s perfection!

This needs its own thread. Seriously. Actually everything on here needs its own thread. Please.

My replacement box is here! I may have hinted lightly at this (by loading it onto my his computer and saying "order this one") but I think my husband did a great job!
When it comes to jewelry, that's absolutely the right way to train a husband! :mrgreen2:

Very nice box too!
