The last time I posted here was when I got engaged 6 years ago. Now my husband and I are expecting our first baby in a few months and he got me this beautiful ring as an early push present/anniversary gift (our baby is due on our 5 year wedding anniversary!). It is a 3.74 ctw 7 stone princess cut band. I usually wear a size 5 but since I am 6 months pregnant I stopped wearing my wedding bands and engagement ring for fear of it getting stuck. This ring is about a size 5.25 and the stones are 4mm (please ignore my slightly puffy fingers, it was the end of the day and 90 degrees yesterday). I love eternity bands but they were a bit uncomfortable for me, so this is the best of both worlds. It's so sparkly, pictures don't do it justice!

Considering this for my mom's 60th =)2
My imagination started on me and I thought I would add as a message (we are two kids) : " my brother and I are the branches and you are our star =)2 "
(please tell me if you wouldn't like it for some reason, I know she loves the brand and she saw this piece once recently and said it was really pretty, but seldom buys jewelry for herself:cry2:)

More costume jewellery than high end, however, I have just ordered a Nomination type charm with a resin insert that can incorporate the ashes of my beloved little dog that died suddenly last month.

I wear a Nomination bracelet as part of my every-day bracelet stack, therefore, it will be a good fit for me.

The bracelet itself is sentimental, in that I bought it at the airport in Florence when I was in the area for a business trip back in the days when I was climbing up the corporate food chain in 2004.

The new charm will replace one of the two original enamel one that no longer has any enamel on it.

I got this white gold and topaz brooch to scratch my itch for a diamond starburst. I plan to add a bale and wear it as a pendant.

I really like that it’s going to be a great pendant ! I know what you mean about the diamond starburst I want one so bad :lol-2:

Quick post of my new DK fun bypass ring. I love that the diamonds appear white, yellow, and pink in different lighting.

I have no excuse for this. I bought it because it was pretty. No excuse whatsoever.

It's 2.17ct, roughly 8 x 6mm, untreated. Burmese in provenance. The photo is a screen shot and doesn't pick up the color very well. It's a gorgeous gem. I was looking for a grey with blue overtones, but ended up with a blue with grey / violet overtones. Very happy with this. Will set east/west with pear sides most likely.[/URL]

After thinking about it even briefly, I think I'm going to do a 3 stone with cushion sides.

@mrs-b No! Haha! I’m going to do that with my silver spinel! Hahaha I swear we are sisters in another life! I also have a similar Pom Pom dangly pillow you have on your bed. I even think we have the same blue rug. I may do spinel sides..Fortunately if I do the three stone we don’t live near each other! :lol-2: I may not even do the cushion sides and keep it plain. I have to get the stone first. I wanted to do diamonds but the spinel wasn’t expensive.

I KNEW it! Sisters from another mother!!

If we lived nearby, we'd be sharing our things like crazy! Between us, we hit pretty much everything, jewelry-wise!!

And that is too funny re your silver spinel! I know I've seen it, but do you have any photos to hand you could post here? I want to see its shape.

It’s 2.87 approximately 9.7x8mm He said there wasn’t a window and was well cut. We’ll see. I’m not looking for perfection in this. I just wanted something to replace the moissanite I sold. I will probably do the same setting which is more expensive than the spinel! I think I’m going to leave it plain.

@MamaBee -

Do you regret selling the moissy? That was a lovely ring! I completely understand leaving the setting plain - it's a very elegant look.

I bought this one because I miss both the AVC I sold and also Boadicea. I miss a rectangular shape. This spinel hardly compares - I mean - it's only small But I love that antique cushion shape and will enjoy this ring for summer as something casual. I also thought it would go nicely with my charm bracelet. That charm bracelet. The gift that keeps on taking. Unbelievable.

Ok, I have something to share...this ring is on it's way, I'm hoping to have it by the end of the week, It's being sized by Jewels by Grace. 3.04 August Vintage, M SI 2, Leon Mege setting. Formerly a PSer's. This is my last big bling purchase. Nervous and excited lol.
