lmdanny, those two are my essentials, too. Only I'm a woman.Imdanny|1332105833|3151524 said:A watch and wedding ring. Although I wish we could wear jewelry as much as women or as much as men in Tudor England. For one thing I'd like a long chain.

- 3 diamond erings (RB, pear, 3-stone)
- 2 diamond RHRs (coloured diamond, 5-stone band)
- diamond solitaire studs
- diamond cluster earrings
- diamond pendant
- diamond bracelet
- 3 diamond eternity rings
- SS + Tahitian pearl necklaces and pearl drops
- high-end watch
I would call these satoirs, but I also see the term being used for shorter necklaces as well.Circe|1332017197|3150967 said:- a really long necklace that can double as a belt. I love the ones I've been seeing recently of diamond briolettes pierced on both ends and strung on platinum wire. (BTW, is there a special name for this? Hunting them down is like looking for hen's teeth.)
Darn, I was feeling so smartCirce|1430580806|3871165 said:Lady Disdain, agreed (on all counts, frankly!), but I meant the stones. Being pierced at both ends and more ... almond shaped than tear-drop shaped, for lack of a better term, it's clear that they're not briolettes, but I've yet to hear a specialized term for them. Drives me nuts when that happens!
P.S. - I think my post in this thread was years ago, and I *still* haven't heard anyone cal them anything specific. Grrrr!
