    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!!

    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!!

    Beautiful @missy :kiss2:

    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!! :cool2::geek2::kiss2:

    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 :mrgreen2:

    Thank you sweet @yennyfire. :kiss2:

    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. :halo:

    Thank you @Dancing Fire. Loved hearing about your trip and your lucky girls who got some beautiful things. Nicely done.

    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))).


    Thank you @Rfisher! Loving all the "new" bling that has been posted on PS recently. Including your gorgeous pieces. TDF gorgeous.

    Thank you so much @stracci2000! Love your description.:love:


    Thank you @yssie but believe it or not these are that pair. LOL my photos just suck. I couldn't get them out of my mind and the more I looked the more I realized to borrow @kgizo's word they are the unicorn of old cut earrings for me. Thanks for your lovely compliments. And the kitties say meoowwww and purrrr to you and your furry crew.

    Thank you so much @bling_dream19! I appreciate your lovely comments!

    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))).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Thank you @foxinsox and my kitties send their purrs and love and thank you too.:love:

    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 :sun:) later.

    Can you see the black enamel detail on the sides of the setting?

    Thank you!

    Thanks so much!

    Thank you Sharon!

    I managed to get a few pics showing the faceting a little better. Mind you not great pics but I am trying lol. We went to the allergist's office and I was snapping away haha.

    First up 2 photos in my purple blue velvet box.

    and when I got back home just a little while ago.
    Focusing on the facets while taking a selfie is not easy. All I am getting is one big blur.

    omcdrops.jpg.png



    And I asked Greg to get a photo of the earrings while I was wearing them as we were leaving this AM and this is what he snaps.
    Men. :rolleyes: :lol:

    missywaiting.png

    Earrings? What earrings? :oops2:

    And that's all folks. I am definitely better enjoying the bling than photographing the bling.:ugeek:
