What''d you get to hold you over before you got upgrade?

I''m guessing some folks got the itch real bad and got something while waiting for upgrade?
What was it?

LOL I got a bunch of crap, most of which I had to take back before I sold my diamond. Dual wedding bands, u-prong with princess cuts, a couple necklaces, and an asscher-cut rapsberry pink spinel, which I thankfully still have!

I'm in that boat now, but not for an "upgrade". I just wanna buy something SO SO bad and I don't have any money at the moment. (Arrrggh!!
) I make silly little purchases like a 4 mm rose gold plain band to wear on my middle finger, or other things along those lines. I'm currently debating a new setting for an ugly ring I had made a while back too, but I've been debating that for a while.

A halo.


But I'm not getting an upgrade (unless hubby completely changes his mind, not likely, and honestly since my reset, I'm very content).

If you get a prong set halo, you can always put a colored stone in it when you do upgrade.

Don't do it!! Better to save up and wait for the real upgrade.

I bought a bunch of smaller items, like earrings, bracelets, pendants, rings with smaller diamonds etc. The money I wasted!

Thritto! I wasted so much money on mini upgrading, new settings etc. If I had kept that money I would have been able to get the diamond size I really wanted.

You''re a smart cookie, Gypsy. Never thought about the halo being used for a color stone. Man, too bad I didn''t think of that when I had a solitaire!

I had my solitaire stone reset into a 3 stone setting. That held me over for a couple of years until the upgrade.

For what it''s worth, I always find that wearing just my plain gold band or my rolling ring for a couple of weeks puts the ''oomph'' back into my bling when I trot it out again - and no $$$ spent in the meantime

Hmmmm . . . since I got my e-ring, I have gotten a three-stone necklace, a tennis bracelet, a pair of princess-cut studs, and a Beverley K eternity band. And I still don''t have my upgrade! LOL!

I know. You''re so right. It could mean a difference in 1-2 months if I get something in between. Oh but how I love lots of pretty things. blech

I think a 5 stone should be on every ladies list of must get jewelery pieces. I swear once I started wearing it, even my upgrade couldn''t compete.
