Wait a minute, no, no, not these two (though who doesn't love these two)?

Some of you might not know who they are (if you're interested check out Gilligan's Island).
Ginger was the movie star...cast as a Marilyn Monroe type.
Mary Ann was the quintessential girl next door.

Passion plus wholesomeness - the complete package.

Speaking of complete package here are the Mary Ann and Ginger I am speaking about.
But first, a poem.

Oooh UPS just arrived with some holiday cheer.
Wrapped within a box and a box and a box so dear.
I ask my hubby to do the honors since this is his forte.
Making me happy is his wish each and every day.
He always succeeds beyond my wildest dreams.

He is my most cherished gift, we are a great team.

Darn, another sparkly thing for mommy! Daddy spoils her. Maybe there's food in this bag for me, let me look.

In front of our tree which is still up.
They have soft pastel colors and are very glowy.

I am having trouble capturing their beauty in photos. I have been spoiled by Bubbalah who is as easy as pie to photograph. She doesn't take a bad photo.


Mary Ann in the car.

Getting a left ear selfie is the most challenging of selfies lol.

As with all things old cut they are little chameleons changing in each environment. I am getting to know their personalities.

A couple of more photos.

But first I want to thank @LLJsmom @MamaBee and @Slick1 for all your generous support and time and help. You girls make choosing bling so much fun. And a big thank you to all the other PSers who helped me in my beautiful piece thread and of course, it goes without saying the NIRDI thread. You girls are the best. I appreciate every single one of you who took the time and energy to comment or just acknowledge you were sharing my journey with me. Thank you!

I must confess to your choice of studs and not drops, as I thought you are not too keen on large studs.

However they do look very nice on you!

Well, I expanded upon this in the beautiful piece thread. For now I am keeping them as studs. Greg loves diamond studs on me and feels it is a classic choice. I am going to wear them and give them a chance. The plan is, in the future, to reset into a Thelma and Louise style drop earring. But I will preserve these original antique settings for sure and not reset into Thelma and Louise settings because frankly, these settings are more beautiful IMO and even Grace confirmed if I was to make these into drop earrings I should keep these original settings. Thanks for your compliment @dk168.

Oh my goodness. Those are divine. So gorgeous and love their names. It also is harder to take a good photo of both Ginger and Mary Ann - double the trouble lol. What a wonderful sparkly start to the new year!

What gorgeous earrings! They look stunning on you - just the perfect size for your lobes! I would probably keep them as studs and not dangles because of the perfection of those proportions, tbh. I think you absolutely made a stellar choice with these :kiss2:

So so so beautiful!!! Where did you get them? On a side notes, isn’t it funny how good bling usually comes tn at least two ups or FedEx boxes, then an envelope, then another box? :lol-2: Like they want to build the suspense!!!

Missy, they are magnificent!! I'm glad you went for exactly what you wanted, because they are perfect on you!!

Aww thank you @ForteKitty ! I kept telling myself I wanted G/H OECs (and yours are the purrrfect high color OECs) but I guess when I saw these I fell in love.


Wow! Just wow! They look like they were made for your earlobes! They perfect size and the setting is stunning! So glad they found their way to you....they couldn’t have found a nicer home with a lovely lady!

Yes it is. Double purpose. Security so no one guessed it’s bling and it also helps build the suspense:)

I purchased them from Grace of Jewels by Grace. She has the most yummy inventory and she’s super nice too.


Beyond words. They are absolutely spectacular and look wonderful on you. Wishing both of you the best in 2021.

Thank you so much. Wishing you all the best too.


They are massive, how wide are they please @missy ?

TIA!

DK :kiss2:

Haha they are large. Not next to Bubbalah and when I take more photos (and I will) I’ll show a comparison pic. The diamonds measure
8.61 - 8.64 x 4.87 mm,
8.56 - 8.58 x 4.85 mm
