In any order you want.

1. BGD K SI with flourscence bezeled (18K) studs approximately .60 ctw
2. 3-5 carat total weight bezeled rounds tennis bracelet.
3. Mint or Peach Garnet, for a RHR. Or a medium blue spinel for the same.
4. New setting for my 7 stone diamond band.
5. Bark texture stacking rings with diamonds in yellow, white, and rose gold (I have Leslie pricing some right now). I'm thinking of wearing these instead of my wedding set some days.

Great thread indeed.

Mine are:

1) a Franck Muller watch, this one (or if not, then a Cartier - but I forget the name of the model nor can I find a pic on the internet
):

[ok, i'm really having trouble either linking or posting pic, it's the FM King Conquistador Cortez Centre Second Diamond or 10000 SC D King]

2) a 5ct-ish RB diamond ring in F-G-H colour, VS clarity

3) a 6-7ct EC, E or F colour, VS1 or VVS clarity, preferably Cartier or HW (this is really wishful thinking, prob will never happen
)

4) a 14-18mm white SS pearl graduating necklace

5) either a Riveriera (sp?) diamond necklace; or a 3-4ct diamond pendant (either OMC or antique cushion, if not then a RB), probably bezelled

6) an 8-10ct FY or Intense FY diamond ring, cushion or radiant, set by Leon

I know you only asked for five items, but those are on my wishlist!!


ETA: OOOOOHHHH, I left out one very important item, no 7 on my wishlist:

7) an Asscher bracelet of 1ct each (he he, I'm not greedy, not at all,
). LOVE the one for sale on Leon's website.

Not a terribly original thread, but just wanted some drama free bling celebrating posts. There's economic upheavals, revolutions, death, disease, disaster, or just silly drama everywhere and well... I need a reality break. So I figured others would too.


Whitby... I can't wait to see your re-set opal. I would do 5 .30 each in that band you are considering, personally. And... um Sasha Primak has a couple of jaw droppers.
As for your 50th. I think South Sea enhancers for your studs (you have studs right)? And earring jackets. Or a .50 diamond pendant. One point for each year (and you can upgrade till you reach a full carat every ten years...lol).

Pheonix, you list is like... reading a list by Liz Taylor. I can't wait to see what you get next, because you have excellent taste.

Ooooh, fun! My buy list keeps evolving, but here it is now:

1) A natural colored diamond (I have a fakey, but I want the real thing!)
2) A D/E/F color diamond with strong or very strong blue fluor
3) A Heart of Water Jewels Lotus Ring (like MakingTheGrade''s) - actually, working on this now!

4) Diamond stud earrings
5) An interesting or unusual square cut diamond, like the Princess of Hearts or Lucida/Lucere (maybe combine this with #2?)

I''ll play:

1. DD''s b-day is coming up in two weeks. (high school age)
I like the new Paloma Picasso small 16" ''Crown of Hearts'' necklace for her. I''m usually not a T&Co. fan, but this particular design just looks fresh for a teen.
2. Jackets in either tsavorite or ruby for my studs.
3. Getting my cushion ruby ring from the jewelers by August.
4. Going to Chicago for the first time next month. I''d like to bring back something simple, maybe a charm.

1. WF or BGD bezeled studs. Probably between .25 and .33 ctw. I don''t wear earrings very often, and I''d like a small pair of studs for every day.

2. Rose gold setting for my amethyst. Something kind of David Yurman inspired, probably with a split shank.

3. Bezeled OEC pendant from Erica Grace

4. WF scattered diamond hoops. LOVE them.

5. WF DBTY bracelet, maybe. Or a rolling ring. I love tri-colour pieces.

None of these will happen in the next year, but hopefully a couple will happen in the next few years:

1. 1.5 - 2 carat transitional (or OEC) in a lower color for a RHR--in its original setting would be ideal (aiming for 5 year anniversary)
2. Asscher cut eternity band around 3 tcw (possible push present?)
3. Very thin (2mm) antique platinum band or french cut diamond band to use as alternate spacer (no rush on these--if a good deal were to pop up, I''d get them anytime)
4. Diamond Studs
5. Diamond pendant

I completely applaud these motivations. Also, there is grading to be avoided! So ....

1) A bezeled pear diamond pendent. I want a bezeled pear diamond pendant. I need a bezeled pear diamond pendant.

2) Martini earrings, maybe 1 ctw.

3) A pretty, flirty, shiny diamond bangle. Charles Kyprell makes some lovely ones ....

4) Baroque black pearl drops, 12-14 mm, to match the necklace that my folks gave me when I graduated from college (um - I hope we are allowed to mention these in this forum - if not, mods, feel free to cut this line!)

5) A long and sturdy platinum chain - 24 inches, cable in style

Of course, that''s the jewelry buy list. The jewelry wish list is a little more, uh, fanciful ....

I want Phoenix''s 7ct EC!!

I don''t have a list of 5 things, but what I''d really like is a small dangling diamond earring as a stud-alternative. I already have bezeled round studs and larger asscher studs, but I''ve been thinking about some small pave earrings that I could wear almost daily.

An OEC stone (small - less than .50 ct)
A diamond eternity band
Plain gold thin bands that I can stack
I''d also like a rose gold band with small diamonds.
Also, there is a pair of earrings at Nordstrom that I''m buying next week!

Overall, I really do not have any significant purchases planned, however, will buy a little something within the next few months!

Good thread!


1. A new setting for the five stone OEC band I bought (yes no one has seen this yet if you are wondering
)

2. A diamond bangle

3. A rose gold baby fingerprint necklace (a double one) from here: https://www.cosafinajewelry.com/gallery.asp?galleryID=3&productID=140


That is my ''doable'' list for now...I think otherwise I''d rather spend money on our house!

OK, now, we need to see this 5 stone!!!

And I love that necklace! How sweet!

I may add KTIce''s mom''s 5 stone (in rose gold) to my list...NF that would be awesome with OECs!!!

1. Graduation ring (3 years down the road). I'm thinking of doing something similar to the cartier rolling trinity ring, but with small bezel sapphires. Or maybe getting Sally's new rose gold spinner ring with sapphries. Haven't really decided yet...but it is definitely going to be a project in the works!
2. Bezel pendant with miligrain (diamond or sapphire)
3. Translucent star sapphire (white or very pale blue)set in a ring
4. An antique/art deco style ring setting
5. A gemstone key pendant from Julia Kay Taylor

Mine''s pretty much the "doable list" as well. Right now I have a ton of other priorities. Actually, it''s been over a year since I''ve purchased anything (except smaller items like gold earrings), especially between moving twice, I''m finding decorating is higher up on my list. There''s a big empty wall that needs jazzing up. Plus I want a rug for my bedroom!

Okkk I can give you a sneak pic! (And I have something very similar to KT's ring in mind!)

This is with the current setting. I bought it mainly for the stones as I don't love the side profile of the setting (it makes the stones jut out awkwardly when worn) but the price was totally fair even for just the stones IMO. They are .25-.30 each. The stones are incredibly well cut and perfect matches which as you know is REALLY hard to find in OEC's.

(sorry for the mini-threadjack Gypsy!)
