I have to stipulate up front that this bet was all hubby''s idea! It was a sucker bet for me.....I couldn''t lose either way. If I won I got something I wanted and if I lost I got something else that I wanted. No brainer for me! I made the bet and ...................................................

Hubby lost the bet. I really hoped that he would win but that''s another story. This wasn''t a bad consolation prize. It''s the sapphire and diamond bracelet I have been eyeing for over a year. 1.97 ctw of G VS2 diamonds and 7.20 cts of round sapphires. I''m really sad though because hubby is now stating to everyone that will hear that he will never make a bet with me again.

Wow, you guys are quick!! I love it too. SS, here's a wrist shot.

ETA: This shows the clasp too. It's really hard to find and has 2 small saftey catches that fit underneath that stone.

geko, the bet was if we got the house we submitted an offer on down in FL he could get a 52" LCD TV for it and if we didn''t get the house I could get this bracelet. I couldn''t lose. I would have been very happy had he won the bet. I really wanted that house.....sigh but this ain''t a bad consolation prize. We''ll be back on the house hunt in the fall. We only put an offer in now on this one because it was such a great house and location.

Oh Michelle I love it
. In fact, I love your whole sapphire set. I want to come and play in your jewelry box.


I am so sorry you lost the house, I know how much you wanted it, but another and better one will be right around the corner.

Your bracelet looks so beautiful on your wrist. I just adore it and the color of the sapphires are fantastic.

Love, Linda
