So I got my diamond earrings and possibly my first gray hair. My jeweler friend Dave delivered my new diamond earrings last week. Yes, delivered them. I was in crisis mode at work and could not get free to come see them. He needed a decision quickly, so brought them to work for me. So nice to do business with friends. They are bigger than I expected for 3/4 caret each. I really like them, sparkly. I gave my friend the size and price I was willing to pay and I'm told these are very nice for the price. Each has an inclusion that Dave can see from a foot away, but I cannot find them even when told where to look. So I'm happy.
My sister is a bit jealous I think. Her 1 caret each are a smaller diameter than mine. I'm sure her quality is higher than mine and mine are shallower, but yesterday all she could focus on was that mine were much less expensive and yet were bigger. I told her I'd trade. She didn't take me up on it, but is seriously considering trading up. She covets a friend's 2 caret each earrings. I'd be afraid to leave the house with rocks like that.
She got even with me though. She pointed out a gray hair in my nose. She thought it was a booger, but it is a bright hair. I said it couldn't possibly be a gray hair, that it was blond. I saw it today though. I think she is right. Ack! Next I'll be sprouting long coarse hairs from my ears. Luckily I have friends and family comfortable pointing these things out.
If my call phone camera wasn't total crap I'd upload a picture of my new bling.
