so on monday night my husband and i are going to *this*...

http://www.zagat.com/promo.aspx?pn=146

...which we''re really looking forward to, being our first Zagat dinner in the US etc. we also thought it might be a cool way to meet some new yorkers, so we thought we''d better put our best foot forward! and this inspired me to finally get one of my pairs of diamond earrings repaired to wear for the occasion. and i''ve attached 2 shots taken this evening...

(NB this is in no way a promotion - this dinner filled up long ago and i am in no way affiliated with Zagat. or the restaurant. or the chef. or anything!)

skippy, brown.eyed.girl, MissGotRocks, Bliss, geckodani, ambergretchen, daisi, diamondseeker, SanDiegoLady, dannyandterry, just julia -

thank you for all your kind comments! and diamndseeker - thanks for praising my very marginal photo-taking skills! i tried!

from the time my husband and i came here 6 years ago, we''ve been touched by how thoughtful, kind and warm hearted in particular, that americans are. this site is another example of that. :) i''ll wear my earrings on monday night and think of you all :)

They are beautiful! So you are coming to my part of the country! I''m in Manhattan! Have a fabulous time and remember New Yorkers are very friendly (don''t listen to those rumors that say we aren''t
)

i love new yorkers, annette! we live in westchester county, and tim, my husband, works on wall street. and we''ve found americans in general, including new yorkers, to be warm and friendly and interested and helpful. there''s always exceptions, of course, but, as two displaced australians, we''ll always be grateful that we live here.

Whitby..My best friend lives up in Westchester country (Scarsdale). I''ve seen so many great places in West. County to live. Yes I agree for the most part NYers are friendly and helpful but YES we find those who are exceptions. There are a handful of Australian families in my daughters school. I have to tell you (and I''m not just saying this) every Australian that I''ve met over the years have all been so very nice. The sad thing is 4 out of the 5 families that I was friends with, all moved back to Australia
. I''m just glad I was able to get to know them while they were here. Enjoy your dinner in the city. Looks like it''s going to be a fabulous meal and evening! Maybe one day while you''re walking down the streets of the city, we will bump into each other!

atroop, princessplease, lorelei, ellen, icekid and gemgirl -

thank you so much for your kind comments! and annette - especially thank you for your comments about Australians. the love affair is mutual :)

having had these made from scratch, i was lucky in being able to choose the stones myself, so they''re a very nice quality. i have a good quality pair of 1.5ctw studs, too, which are ideal cut, ex/ex pol/symm, G SI1. they''re very nice stones, and i can tell you, the little guys in *these* ones above are nicer. they have a great deal of sparkle and are quite eye catching.

i''m planning on 6 more pieces between now and the end of next year - and then i''m done. i started with a list a few years ago of what i wanted and didnt have, and have been working my way through since. but when i turn 50 next year, it''s time to say ''enough''! i''ll look forward to showing pics of each new piece as i get it done; luckily it''s my 25th wedding anniversary this year as well as my 50th birthday next year - so i figure that warrants a few special pieces, surely...??! :D

annette, i put my picture up in the ''pricescope cafe'' - Hangout; i''m on page 33, sandwiched in between a lot of gorgeous looking women; i mention this so you''ll know what to look out for on the streets of Manhattan should we ever run into each other outside one of 49th street''s famous jewelry haunts! (and yes, scarsdale is lovely! i often go to the flower shop there as i''m often in scarsdale seeing my dentist
)

i hope you''re all enjoying your weekend :)

Blasphemous!!

You better watch it, they'll take your PS membership card for saying such things.



p.s. I just adore that mirror shot.
