I just received a pair of earrings I won off eBay... and they''re fantastic!!

These came from Blue Nile, and the quality is amazing. .40ctw, E & F, VS2 diamonds set in screwback 18kt yellow gold. I was only able to find one small crystal in one of the earrings, using a 20x loupe, and the cut is very very nice! I can make out some thin arrows, but who cares... it''s sparkly!!

These are my mom''s Valentine''s Day present. She had a pair of earrings exactly that size, but they were stolen. My sister''s ears were infected a few months back and needed to wear something in 18kt yellow gold, so she borrowed them. Well, she had a school play and had to wear some pirate earrings, so she took them off and put them in her purse which was in her locked locker... and someone went in and jacked them.


Anyway, my mom''s been wearing some diamond huggies since then, but I know she''d prefer some smaller studs that don''t get in the way when she used her phone. She has bigger ones but never wears them because she''s afraid she''d lose them... hope she will wear these!

my camera is somewhere in this madhouse, but here is an image from the auction:



Best of all, I got it for $226!!! (and it comes in a beautiful polished wooden box!) Yay!!

Well, she''s been thru a lot lately. She''s turning 50 this year, and her company just lost a contract... so she was laid off in December, right before Christmas. She''s a single parent, and both of my younger siblings are in college right now. Freshman and Junior @ UCLA... expensive. *sigh* but what can ya do?

I told her not to worry because I make enough to support everyone, and that she should just take the time to relax and collect her 2-month severence pay and unemployment, since she paid into it all these years. But you know how mothers are.. they freak out.

Hopefully these will cheer her up a bit. and hopefully i wont get berated for wasting money!

I agree, you are an EBAY pro. Not sure how you do it!!!

Those are just beautiful, and even more beautiful because of the price :)

Thanks you. You guys are so sweet! :)

i was actually gonna bid on a 1/3ct diamond blue nile platinum pendant today, but decided not to because my mom only likes to wear her jade pendant. now i kinda regret it because it ended at $211! oh well...
