Guess what I bought today...

  1. :yahoo: I'm so excited I could 'splode. I broke down and bought myself my first (possibly only) diamond studs. Worst possible time to spoil myself-- we need a new roof, I've just suffered through MAJOR MAJOR car expenses, and I haven't paid off the holiday gift giving frenzy. Ultimately, this little goody gives a whole new meaning to going for broke:p . But I did it anyway:yes: . After this I'm going on what ever it is the purse people call it when they take an extreme break from self indulgence(rehab?).

    Meanwhile, Fedex will deliver my .49 (.98 ctw) carat each, E color, vs1-2, ideal cut and polish, platinum Raffael four prong, screw post, on Tuesday. I bought these from SignedPieces.Com/Facets based on recommendations I'd read on PriceScope and the owner, who I spoke with on the phone about five times today, was incredibly nice and patient . Oh, one more thing! I was really lucky to find these at so close to just under .50 points. There's a fairly signifigant price increase at the half carat mark, and being under just under saved me more than the cost of the setting. :wlae: I think it's all going to work out really well.

    Anyway, I'd like everyone to tell me that a half carat in each ear is a great size for work, dressing-up, and blue jean week-ends. I keep reminding myself that any bigger, would be representing myself as someone whose credit cards are being over-worked. Besides it's cold and raining outside and that roof is going to be spensive enough.

    Anyway, I'm bizerk with glee and couldn't wait to tell y'all.:yahoo:

    Champaign taste on a water budget!!!!
  2. Woohoo! They sound really, really nice! At least you will have them and be able to wear them until you are an old, old woman!
  3. Congratulations! You deserve them.:yes: We always talk ourselves out of buying things for ourselves. I love it when we can talk ourselves into it! Wear them in good health!
  4. Congrats on the diamond earrings. They will be great to wear with everything.

  12. Congrats!!! 1 cttw studs are on my 'wishlist'. I can't wait to see pics of yours :smile:
  13. I think those are the perfect everyday size! I have a pair and wear them all of the time. Well, I did until one of the screw backs went flying off while running on the threadmill!
  14. Ack!!! I hope you only lost the back and not the whole thing:wtf: .

    My original engagement ring (it grew at the 10 year mark) was .39 points. It's now a pendant, but I keep looking at it trying to guess what something just a little bigger will look like in my ears. I think it's going to be awesome.:love:

  15. Congrats to you! They are the perfect size! I wear my studs just about every day. I definitely think they are worth the investment. They go with absolutely everything. Post pics when you get them!
