I'll play! :))

Beloved became Beloved x 3 and got 2.25ctw H VS1 ACA sides.

IMG_1889.jpg

IMG_1686.jpg

IMG_1456.jpg

I got my gorgeous Southern Cross locket - 18kt with .8ctw of diamonds and the locket that I turn to when homesick for Australia (often).

IMG_1551.jpg

IMG_1552.jpg

My beautiful silver, enamel and AVR locket (granted - only posted yesterday for the first time, but actually received before Christmas)

IMG_2439.jpg

IMG_2448.jpg

Two beautiful rings - a 20kt, heavy, 4.2mm plain band, and an eternity (made from what was originally an anniversary band) - in 18kt yellow gold with lovely, colorless diamonds. I love this combo and wear one or both of them all the time.

IMG_2373.jpg

IMG_2372.jpg

And some wonderful hoops that I can wear 24/7, as they're 'infinity' hoops and can spin 360 degrees in the ear with nothing to catch my skin or stick into my ear or neck or catch on my hair when I'm sleeping. 18kt and solid.

I got some peridots from Finewater Gems, a paperclip chain from someone on Etsy, and a pink sapphire eternity band, bought from @springerspaniel.

20220513_180836.jpg

20220524_165200.jpg

20220403_205339.jpg

And I had a major budget blowout on my floral diamond studs - colorless, eye clean, ideal cut diamonds in platinum - roughly 5.1ctw - which finish off my my cluster set.

20220408_115412.jpg

Next (or previously, because I'm working backwards), I halo'd my 1.5ctw OECs, which I wear with all my pearl drops.

DKPV2021___12__07____74343_v2____74343_V2-5.jpg

But best of all, and beyond comparison, I got *this* jewel - my daughter, who I adopted in July. <3

@mrs-b Do you recall the Etsy vendor of the paperclip necklace? I'm trying to find a decent version that is neither paper thin nor $$$.

I’m almost afraid to list everything because last year when I put the list together I was shocked :lol:

Hmm maybe this is an activity that calls for some liquid courage first!

2022 - Year in review. Great bump @Mreader
What a practical thread this is. I am actually surprised by how much I’ve spent and how much I buy each year. Don’t know why. More VCA than I remember.

HP holiday pendant
Perlee bubble ring
Ruban ring
Perlee single row diamond bangle
Chanel beige gold band
Chunky gold hoops
Carnelian and WG 5 motif
8B65ED40-79EE-43CC-A5AA-C20C8366C62C.jpeg
I did get a 36 Datejust but after wearing it for several months I found it too chunky and heavy on me so I resized it for my DH. So I did not include it above.

Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s.

So for me, it was the year of the pendants and necklaces, evidently. My favorite of my collection is the snake, but I’m also in love with the crescent I acquired and a beautiful Victorian locket. I also got two Victorian chains and one has two big bolt rings which I just love. Probably the biggest thing is this beautiful French band that I bought from another PSer. I also got a gypsy ring. Not pictured are some bands - I can’t find them on my camera roll and I don’t feel like taking them out right now! But as others have said, I definitely bought more than I thought I would!

The past two years have been riddled with difficult events that my family and I had to overcome. But jewellery continues to bring me great comfort, so here are the 2022 new additions that bring me much joy...

20230117_232903.jpg

20230117_233254.jpg
- 2 dainty rose gold necklaces with diamonds
- 3 pairs of yellow gold hoops in total, one with gypsy set scattered diamonds, one in the shape of stars and one with a cuban curb link design and set with baguette diamonds
- a pair of white gold hoops with dangly diamond spikes
- 3 pairs of yellow gold earring charms in ruby, sapphire and emeralds
- 2 diamond eternity bands - a pave one and shared prong one
- a fancy purplish pink diamond bezelled band
- a preloved Hermes rose gold CDC bangle that was a steal!
- and finally, my favourite of them all, a heart-shaped diamond eternity band that I have been eyeing for a long time and finally bought to pamper myself for a difficult year. Here are additional photos of it with my e-ring and a close-up shot of it on its own...

Oh I love them all but the half moon pendant and the French cut band...
