desperate to buy you a few of NICE pieces of bling. So he or she furtively comes to PS, knowing your an adict, and posts for help. What would you want us to direct him/her to for you?

Pick three items. Watches, rings, necklaces... you name it. BUT YOU MUST ATTACH PICS OR A LINK PLEASE. (you can change your mind and swap items as others post things you MUST have, of course)

Also choose two NON-JEWELRY items you want to accompany the gifts for romance... a special bottle of wine, or champage, or an evening at a special restaurant.... whatever.

Keep in mind that you don't want to be one of those lottery bankrupt stories so keep it fairly reasonable.

And HAVE FUN!


This 19K Tiffany swing three row necklace:





This Leon Mage masterpiece as a RHR. I would want ERD to source the cushion for me D-G completely eyeclean... plot like Traveling Girls, MMM, or Moremoremore's cushions. 3 carats. And Leon and do the rest including all sidestones.

And finally. My dream watch. Vacheron Constantin Egerie WG with diamond markers and WG bracelet watch. The PERFECT all the time watch, IMO. This, incidentally, would be my first choice... if I had to pick only one present.


I would also want, a bottle of Extra Dry (I have plebian champagne tastes) champage. His choice on brands. And a really nice card. Silly I know... but he gets me the nicest cards, and writes the most wonderful things in them.

Okay, here''s a ring I have always adored. It has diamonds on the bands, but I think it would be okay for me. I''d upgrade my diamond to about 1.25 carats and have this ring made.

I would find an aqua or blue topaz ring for my right hand, not expensive, though.

I don''t want anything romantic. All I need for romance is time alone with my husband -- that is a luxury money can''t buy!!!

BUT, we desperately need new carpeting and kitchen flooring. If we won a LOT of money, I''d like to push the kitchen out about 10 feet and add a lot more counterspace and cabinetry. Then I''d make our walk in pantry (which used to be our laundry room) into a mud room so we would not enter from the garage through the kitchen (sounded like a great idea when we bought the house, but the kitchen becomes the catch all for stuff we bring in).

Something people don''t tell you when you have kids is that they don''t want to be alone in their room when they are sick, especially in a two story house. Our beautiful, butter soft, analyn died sofa has stains all over it from someone having a fever and leaving a damp wash cloth on the arm, drinks spilled on the seats (my husband, not the kids!) and a variety of things no one wants to sit down on but that can''t be steam cleaned away on leather furniture. So I would really love to have some nice looking, flexsteel furniture for the family room.

Gee, I don''t want much do I??? Just a new wedding ring, earrings, kitchen, carpet, flooring, and furniture!!! Oh, well, at least I don''t want a mansion and a Ferrari. Although, my hubby is driving a 14 year old beemer. I''d like him to get a new 5 series. Or a 7 series if we won a LOT of money, LOL!

Oh, I would like some new artwork from my favorite Savannah artist Emma Knight!!!

First, I''d have him buy this cushion from GOG:

2.02 G, VS1 cushion EX/GIA

...and put it in a plain platinum split-claw prong setting.

Second, I''d want a 1.5ct H, VS2 ACA round in a bezel pendant, like this:

Hee hee, I love threads like this!

OK, I love Carmen Diaz'' Cartier Trinity ring, but I''d like a couple of things to compliment it.

How about a Cartier Tortue watch in rose gold, and a pair of delicate "trinity" hoop earrings like the one pictured....but all pave, of course!

I'll forgo a third piece of jewelry since really, the above two things would make me incredibly happy (and those are really all I'd wear anyway).

But my two romantic gifts would be a romantic dinner for the two of us in Fiji, and this bed from Pottery Barn for our house:

Okay... so Widget's going for broke with housing upkeep on that farmhouse.

Ebree *just* wants dinner for two. In Fiji.

Kaleigh wants a lovely watch. Very reasonanable.
Ellen, I think with her one purchase has managed to out spend me.

Skippy. Yes, dear... you're going for broke too. But you'll be in high style while you're doing it.

Lumpkin's being so reasonable that I just want to give her a nice... Aquamarine ring from ... Breguet.

Me too me too. I love that car! It make my heart skip a beat. Yes, we need that farm house in France so we could see how fast this car goes because only in Europe we can drive that fast



Okay, I hear Widget and I are going broke Gypsy, but How much did we win???? I need to maxamize my winnings here!

Oh, geez, you guys have MUCH more vision than I do, LOL! Gypsy, you are so sweet to get me an aqua ring like that! I have not checked to see how much it was listed for, but I have a feeling it''s not on Overstock.com!
