@AnastasiaBeaverhausen I also may or may not have purchased this gorgeous ring last night bc it's exactly the look I love. So I'll have 3 wedding bands to consider *sighs at own inability to control love for bling* Screenshot_20210131-105046_Etsy.jpg

What do you mean by "consider"?? 3 bands is the perfect # for stacking, right?

Also @OdetteOdile I thought you might appreciate this ring i tried on at VC. This was the one I didnt want to take off. But the setting ALONE is $6400, which is painful *faints, cries*. 20210103_110105.jpg

Welp, guess now I have to save up $6400. How much does a kidney go for nowadays?

The vendor deserves a freaking award for all the patience he has for my questions. icm_fullxfull.320371767_lyxbq9zb1dco0woogww0.jpg

There's something about the one with the "grooves" (setting 1 in my original post) that makes my heart go *pitter patter*, but the bigger diamond and potentially more detailed setting is also gorgeous. I'm making myself decide by today by imagining how I'd feel if 1 vs the other sold.

Although then I read this...get the one that makes your heart race! Honestly they are both gorgeous and you can’t go wrong.

FWIW, I love the first one. It seems more refined and the stone size seems to be in better balance with the side flowers. Something feels a bit out of balance to me on the second one, visually. Can’t wait to see your pictures!

The final band I bought arrived first due to the vendor and I living in the same state. My potato camera officially cant handle the bright engraving and single cut diamonds. I took about 30 pics to get 8 normal ones bc all were blurry. Hopefully outdoor light tomorrow will be better. But I couldn't wait! The ring is 6.25 which in theory shouldn't fit but it does! I will likely get it resized to 6.5 or 6.75 for summer swelling and so I can stack it. But happy it fits well enough for now!

This band looks like it might go well with the first ring, the shape of the flowers seems to be the same.

That is a GORGEOUS band! Also I own the second YG band that I think you’re buying from Gilded Times? It’s very comfortable and a lovely bright gold.

Oh yay! Good to know it's easy to wear. Both bands should be arriving in the next few days!

That 810 set is the stuff of dreams.
But for non VC I like this one best
B691AAE6-DF44-4E68-AA81-1D62D0C76375.jpeg

I'm confused about which is 1 and which is 2 because of the way the pictures duplicated and the captions, but I like this one that I'm replying to. I like the way the flowered band fits more flush with the ring and the other band which shows a gap.

It doesn't get much better than this... beautiful rings and precious pups!! :kiss2: Seriously, that ring is gorgeous! Can't wait to see pics of the other rings when they come in... they're all so pretty that I can't make a decision on which one I like more, so I imagine you're having an even harder time choosing!

Is your dog a labradoodle? She looks so much like my cousin's doodle pup, and the doodles one of my coworkers would bring in (pre-pandemic; he was training them to be service dogs!) they were all so sweet and so smart!! I bet your pup is a real sweetheart. ::)

Thanks @AnastasiaBeaverhausen and @silkystarlight for the pup compliments! She's the sweetest girl in the world. And yup, labradoodle! Best breed ever. I freaking adore her. I have a super sad thread about her on hangouts if you want more info about her and our crazy journey, but the short version is that I love her with my entire heart and want to give her the best life ever because it will likely be short.

Oof, I read your old thread :(sad Huge dislike button there. I'm so so happy to see your pup has grown into such a pretty lady!

My doggo has a chronic health condition too that she's on long-term meds for b/c surgery isn't the best option right now. The meds are stupid expensive, but my doggo is so worth it. She just turned 4 years old and is still chugging along. Pic below for dog tax:

Oh, my heart aches for you and your sweet pup, @lovedogs.... such a sad thread. iirc it’s been almost 2 years since you first made that thread, so it makes me happy to see your girl has had lots of love and good times since then! I hope things have been going well for her health-wise, and I wish you both much more time together in good health!!

Awww, your puppy is precious too! Love that smile in the second pic! I hope she continues to be well and happy!



Our four-legged friends are truly special beings.... I would give the world for my family dog and my bf&I’s cat! Our family dog is going to be 12 this year, and almost a year ago now she had to have a lump on her side and one of her toes removed! She also unfortunately has Lyme disease that despite treatment, doesn’t seem like it’ll go away ever. However, I have to say.... she still acts as lively and energetic as she did when we adopted her at 6 months old! And I swear you can’t even tell she’s missing a toe unless you really look for it. She’s such a sweetheart, but also very dramatic sometimes with how she’ll plop down on the floor and groan or heave a big forlorn sigh. She’s too funny! :bigsmile: But yeah, we just try to give her as much love as possible, because I know she’s getting up there. She used to be all shiny black, but now she's black with a distinguished grey muzzle!

one of her many instances at being dramatic, because I turned the hall light on! :lol:


And then there’s my and my boyfriend’s kitty! His younger sister found her wandering around outside on a very cold March day back in 2018... she was such a tiny kitten! But now she’s grown up and she is so big and smart! We’ve even been able to teach her tricks, like “sit, gimme paw, high five, sit pretty, and dance”! I’ll have to see if I can record a video of her doing her whole trick routine! We also got her a little kitty harness and leash and we take her out for walks!

Lately I've noticed that she likes to sleep in funny pretzel shapes like this one! Sometimes she snores too, and it's just too darn cute!

So sorry to take over your thread with pet pics, @lovedogs! But I just have to add one more thing:

@silkystarlight: O. M. G. Your doggo looks exactly like my first doggo! Her name was Sunny. We got 7 precious years with her before she passed away in 2018 at the ripe ol' age of 13.

pic.jpg pic2.jpg

haha yeah, sorry lovedogs!! I promise we can get back to the jewelry talk after this! :lol:


@AnastasiaBeaverhausen WOW!! She really does look like my dog! (her name is Bella, btw!) Right down to the same body shape... that is really incredible! What a sweetie! I bet she had a wonderful 7 years with you... she looks so happy in that second photo!

My overall conclusion is that even though the floral band is beautiful, the texture of it bugs me. Its etched so the flowers rub my other fingers and it drives me crazy. So sadly it will go back :(

But these 2 make a cute stack and can be worn together or by themselves. The square band is definitely a 6.25 so needs to be sized up. It fits fine but my idiot knuckle is big so I need about .25 or .5 bigger.

Funny enough, the floral band is my least favorite of the three! I do love the two stacked together, and I do not think you could go wrong with either! I'm normally not as much of a fan of squares/hard geometric motifs, but I do really like the square stacker quite a bit!

Agreed, those two bands look perfect together. What a nice little bonus!

Too bad about the floral band. I love the look but yeah, no point in keeping it if it's irritating to wear.

yeah, it's sad because the inside of the band itself is super soft and comfy, but just the texture of the flowers themselves itches/irritates my other fingers so its a no-go :(
