I've been looking to buy a bigger RB tennis bracelet for a long time and finally caved in. It's to celebrate my 52nd birthday (coming soon) and freedom from a desk bound job. This is the year to "find" myself and become fitter and healthier.

The diamonds are 0.23 ct each.

Stunning, and congrats on freedom! How are you planning to spend your newfound non-deskbound time?

Thanks. So far....it's by doing nothing. Even though we were working from home for most of last year it was pretty hectic. So for now.....since it's my birthday month, I shall indulge by doing nothing but meeting my friends for lunch etc. Then we have to prep a little for Chinese New Year. After that, I will start exercising and signing up for courses, our government has got subsidies for that, especially for "senior citizens" like me. Hahahahahaha....

Thanks MamaBee, that's because my face is hidden by the mask and you don't see my grey hair. Hahaha...I do love the new bracelet. I waited quite a while to pull the trigger to buy but I deserve it....self-indulgence of the best kind.

Yes..You do deserve it! Even if you do have gray hair you still look like a teenager!

Congrats on leaving your job! And your bracelet is stunning - very fitting way to commemorate this milestone!

a few weeks ago I posted about a 6.90 ct omc style white zircon that I had on hold. Unfortunately, that stone had some white feathers in one corner that bugged me. Luckily the cutter had more rough and was able to cut me this 8.05 ct stone. This is my first white zircon-I have 2 blue zircon rings. I love the faceting of this stone!

This will be my placeholder until I can properly shop for a (smaller) diamond omc or oec. (and please excuse my nails-it's been months since I had a proper manicure!)

Today I put a deposit on the custom diamond hoops I wanted. Very excited.
I ended up increasing the cttw to a full carat and requested ideal cut, VS clarity. Hopefully they aren't too blingy.
And because I like them so much, here they are again. Screenshot_20210102-090938_Samsung Internet.jpg

Oops. I forgot two more. I love this necklace. The sapphire, I gave that to my niece as a gift for her 20th birthday. 677CA2C7-447B-4616-8712-B64A5A1FF3AC.jpeg 3424B831-C540-4B26-9078-4DE4C0E8E387.jpeg

These were my few latest pieced I acquired. D5EF0819-5934-418A-8C08-ECC1A5D9DEA1.jpeg EDBD4FAA-F6DE-4E50-ACBC-B8DA5CD12419.jpeg

WOW! Please tell me more about that delicious sapphire!! What size are the diamonds if you don't mind me asking? It's stunning, as are all of your pieces! :kiss2:

@Mekp I have a pair of earring that are .75 carat and almost exactly the same style. They are perfect for everyday wear! Congrats!

@Mekp so hard to get a good pic! These are not PS quality but they are white and they sparkle. I got them on Amazon and was trying to get the link for you but the vendor only makes 1 carat now.

They are beautiful! Thank you for the picture. I'm even more excited to get mine now!

Happy Birthday @DiaDiva :love: & your new bracelet is just lovely & classic. Is it the same one that you posted in “Bracelet Stack”?

I like 4-claw setting for bigger diamonds too, just a continuous line of sparks :lickout:

My most recent purchase, an anniversary band (natural diamonds), which I’m using as a wedding band with my lab diamond e-ring and I’m really happy with them as a set! (Please don’t mind my awful hands)

I love your new anniversary diamond band!! Would you please provide more details, i.e., the vendor, diamond carat weight, width of band, and ring size?

Your set is lovely on your hand; the band proportions are beautiful with your ER - wear in happiness and good health!

Thank you so much for your kind words! I was a bit worried that the wedding band stones would compete with my main stone, but once I put it on with my e-ring I knew I was going to keep it.

It is actually from Costco, and I am so pleased with the quality. The band has 11 stones (not a full eternity), with a 1.0 ctw. Their policy is that colour be I or above, clarity VS2 or above, there is no documentation about cut, however the cut quality looks great to me. I believe the width of the band is 3.2mm and it is a size 4 ring :)

This is a stunning combo! Your beautiful rings look amazing on your teeny finger! :kiss2:

I'm thinking about getting something close to these jackets. It says she can make them for less with a different stone. I have a pair of drop pearls that I want to make into special occasion dangle earrings and these would be a nice start to the project.

As an impulse buy I bought this 3.1 ct diamond and platinum "watch" with the inner workings removed. The previous owner wore it with tiny sappires loose within and sold it as is. Just so happens to fit my smallish wrist, I can happily report. I will eventually have a stone placed in the middle when I find the right one like I've done previously. But in the meantime I'm wearing it like she did! 20210110_142054.jpg 20210110_142105.jpg 20210110_142122.jpg

...Or maybe I'll keep it more simple and have my white metallic drop pearls put in this setting from Pearl Paradise.

I have earrings very similar to these. I adore them!
