not been busy! :praise: I just came back from visiting my mom in Florida and needless to say, we where both naughty! Found an amazing jeweler there. Wish I could take him back to Ohio with me. Prices are phenominal. Diamonds/ jewelry are just beautiful! I originally set out for some diamond inside/out hoops but after trying several of his earrings on, I ended up getting jackets, and j-hoops. The jackets are .75ctw and the J -hoops are over 1ctw. Super blingy! I also ended up with a 4 + ctw diamond tennis bracelet............. :twisted:

Re: Just because I have not been posting does not mean I hav

So last year I had a local jeweler custom make a pair of earrings for me using my baroque silver-blue akoyas that I provided. I spent so much $$ on that project that I felt these earrings deserved some South Sea pearls. The jeweler in Florida took the pearls from my South Sea Studs 10-11mm and added them to my custom made leverbacks. (NO CHARGE!!) I just love the way they turned out!!! :appl:

Now for my mom's new bling....
Vintage baguette and diamond buttercup leverback earrings. 1.50ctw. The diamonds are just phenominal. So crisp and clean and they look way more gorgeous on than my "sweaty" pics show........ :rolleyes:

:nono: I'm sorry but your bezel bracelet is horrible. :nono: To be honest, I think that you need to hide it away. I will send you my address and will sufficiently hide it for you! :twisted: :naughty:

Ok, so just joking! :appl: Your collection is DELICIOUS!!! :appl: And I wish I could have such a collection! :D :D Do you have some close up/detail pics of your bracelet? I love the look. Was it custom?

LOL! Thank you! I do not have a "super" close up. I took oodles of pics but it was so hot in the Florida sun that I was sweating all over the jewels......... ACK..... they are all so super blingy IRL. I will try to get some better pics when , and "if" the sun ever comes out in Ohio....... :rolleyes:

Your trip to Florida must have been so much fun! The entire collection is way cool! I think it is so awesome that you and your mother share a passion for diamonds and jewelry, and making many happy memories together.

Boy you sure have been busy!!! you have a fantastic collection there CCN :love:

Can I just say how much I love that leverback buttercup earrings... I've been contemplating resetting my studs as I love the comfort of leverbacks or huggies.
