Re: ID Jewelry in NYC, while im in LA

I hope the OP doesn't mind my posting for him. Madison, I don't think the OP is on a budget per se; it's a very good amount he's spending (based on his earlier post). Eugene, ID Jewelry is a reputable vendor. I'd ask, however, if they wouldn't mind have the diamonds re-certed with GIA or AGS and you...

Re: Beauty Products You Are Loving...

I really love this thread. I have been reading it for a while, and have bought some of the products (thanks for the recommendations!). But I really need help remembering to actually apply them. I either just completely forget, or I am running so late/tired that I just think *I'll do it tomorrow*. A...

Re: looking for some large diamond earring studs

I think some people have a "mind-clean" issue at Si2, meaning even if they can't see the flaws easily with their eyes, they still bother them. I'd stick to I Si1 lowest. Is this going to be a surprise? How about asking your wife what she'd like, if it isn't. RE online vendors, so many: IDJ...

Yes, the MOP for WG is different from that for YG. I'm sure that's deliberate on VCA's part, lol!

Re: Realistic bling wishlist for 2017

After a long bling drought of not buying or particularly wanting anything (gasp!) I'm planning a fun dress/cocktail type ring for 2017. I've been on a year's maternity leave until now, so now that I'm back at work, I'll be saving my pennies for something glittery. I'm hoping to find a pillowy shape...
