Me Bling!

Don't you just love getting packages in the mail?!?

I'm slowly conquering my eBay addiction. I've officially have not bought any item for 6 weeks now. Don't get me wrong, I still bid, but I've pulled myself back trying to outbid others. In a way, I'm very grateful that I haven't won anything off there lately, because it gave me some funds to save up for something extra nice.

Last Mother's Day I bought my Mom a green amethyst ring. It was so beautiful, I thought one day I'd get me with my saved money, this month I bought myself one. See the newest member of my collection of bling. It's a 6 ½ carat cushion cut stone with 16 accent diamonds set in 14 karat white gold. This piece will easily become one of my favorites.

Sorry my picture is so blurry, but it's hard trying to get a focused picture of your own hand :S

Quirky Quote: The jeweler allows me to wear the sapphire blue lake on my finger, the emerald green leaves around my neck, and take the citrine sunset with me wherever I go. Jewelry has become my daytime link to nature in an office with no windows. And if I have to work late, there's nothing like diamond stars and a pearl full moon against an onyx night sky. ~Astrid Alauda, "Office With No Windows"
