Hahaha yes I know and I am a Klutz as well. Very dangerous with me handling a knife. But my dh wasn't home and I couldn't wait. I am so impatient I know.Those are gorgeous!! Cute kitties too! But we need to get you a box opener so you don't have to use a kitchen knife to open bling packages!!
ok, A++ on presentation of the unwrapping process LOL, I got to experience it vicariously! ; )I saw these earrings over a month ago and fell in love with them but decided against getting them because one I have so many earrings and two they were more than I wanted to spend. Went home and tried to forget about them. Unsuccessfully I might add. Fast forward to the present and these beauties are mine. Thanks to my DH who is always so generous and loving. Who never believed me when I said (after I got Bubbalah this August) and I quote “ I’m never buying any more bling now. I’m totally satiated with my collection” Bwahaha thank you dear darling husband for never even thinking for a moment that would hold true. You do know me better than I know myself at times.
I took these photos in a hurry just to get some as I have a lot to accomplish today and it’s already 1pm here. Darn doctor appointments really suck up the day.
Without further ado may I present my newest earrings in all their antique Victorian glory. .89 and .88 H VS 14k yellow gold
Thank you sweet @yennyfire.
Thank you @kgizo! They are very white. And you're right lol. They are my unicorn earrings. I didn't even think of that til you just mentioned it. I guess it goes along with the rest of the "unicorns" in my life.Wow, H is pretty white but those look even whiter than that. You found a pair of unicorn earrings!
Thank you @Dancing Fire. Loved hearing about your trip and your lucky girls who got some beautiful things. Nicely done.Beautiful pair of earrings! . Congrats Missy.
Aww thank you sweet @Sandeek and thank you for being with me every step of the way. And if you want to borrow them (or any of my earrings) for any upcoming celebrations (I think you know what I am referring too!) it would be my pleasure. If that is something that would interest you. (((Hugs))).Seriously beautilicious. No wonder they haunted you like an old lover. I am so happy you got them. They look gorgeous on you. Nice find! Wear them in much love and happiness!
Thank you @Rfisher! Loving all the "new" bling that has been posted on PS recently. Including your gorgeous pieces. TDF gorgeous.Gorgeous - they look fantastic on you!
Thank you so much @stracci2000! Love your description.The are delightful!
I remember that somewhat recently you posted a different pair of earrings that you ultimately decided against. I asked in that thread what you were looking for, and you said that you’d know when you see it... Your eyes’ patience sure paid off - in spades!!
Your new darlings are gorgeous, so very very you, and they’re just lovely on... and I love your unboxing photos!! So much cat, so much suspense
Thank you so much @bling_dream19! I appreciate your lovely comments!They are gorgeous Missy! Perfect size and length, blingy and Victorian! So happy you got your earrings
Aww @sarahb thank you so much! You're a dear. And yes, Tommy gets me with those eyes every single time. He has me eating out of his hand so to speak. (Is that the right saying lol). He meows and I jump to his attention. Who could resist him? Thank you for chiming in here and commenting. Miss seeing you around here as often as I used to and miss you in NIRDI. Hope life is going smoothly and all is well. (((HUGS))).Missy, those earrings are the bomb---love the length & sparkle!! But those green kitty eyes...oh my goodness--love them!!!
Hahaha thank you @MissGotRocks! Glad I am not the only one who uses a big knife to rip open packages. LOL if my dh was home he would have scolded me but since I didn't hurt myself all is good. And to be honest Greg loves sharpening the knives so the more I use them the more he gets to enjoy sharpening them. Win win.They are beautiful Missy and they look fabulous on you - so nice when something turns out perfectly!
I had to chuckle when I saw the kitchen knife - best box opener out there - always my tool of choice - lol!!
Thank you @kathley, you are so right. The movement makes them even more special. I love earrings that articulate as I am sure most PSers who have seen any of my Show Me The Bling posts know by now. LOL.Such beautiful earrings! I love dangle earrings and I bet the earring movement really shows off the liveliness of your gorgeous OMCs!
Thank you so much @Daisys and Diamonds. I love that they do have a rich long history. I get a very good feeling from these earrings. I know I sound crazy but yes I often get vibes from pieces. Wonderful warm loving vibes from Bubbalah and these earrings have a similar aura so to speak. And so right. The kitties are enjoying the boxes as much as I am enjoying the new bling. Win win. Haha.OMG they are gorgouse
i wounder what their history is ?
im glad the kitties approves plus they got a box to play with !
Yes @arkieb1 the kitties are enjoying the box as much as I am loving the earrings. No one loses here. Thank you for the lovely comments about the earrings. One day I would love Bubbalah and my black opal to meet Lola and your other beautiful treasures. So far away yet so wonderful that the internet brings all of us so passionate about bling together.Gorgeous, the cats appear to like them and the box too!!!
Aww thank you dear @Alex T. I am still hoping one day we can meet in person and sad that this summer isn't working out. But holding out hope one day in the near future we can get together. Hope all is well with your wonderful family.They are absolutely beautiful! Every time is see a gorgeous pair of antique earrings over here, I always think of you!
Thank you @foxinsox and my kitties send their purrs and love and thank you too.Utter gorgeousness! The kitties are pretty fab too
Dear @CHRISTY-DANIELLE thank you so much for those lovely words. You are so sweet. Thank you!
I owe you guys better photos. Off in a little while to work out and then see my allergist but here's a couple of pics from when I first tried them on. I will attempt getting some clearer photos of the faceting (@Sandeek see I am not forgetting ) later.
Can you see the black enamel detail on the sides of the setting?
Thank you!So incredibly stunning. These are perfect on you.
I love the delicate details and the diamonds are just so beautiful and twinkly and delightful.
So happy for you!!! Enjoy!!!
Thanks so much!
Thank you Sharon!HI:
