Bagpuss, if you are reading this come on over and post your beauty here please!

ancienthills 10-27-03 08:13 AM

Well I am going to go lie down now. I think I have given myself a fever! My favorite look is still a big clean beautiful round solitare in a plain and simple setting, but deco is sooooo nice and has great personality as well. Hopefully there will be tons of other peoples beautiful photos from searches on the net or in their jewelry box. Maybe tomorrow I will pull out the digital camera and include some of my own simple possessions.

ancienthills 10-27-03 08:14 AM

My ring? Bah! People ar sick of it!!!! ;) I am posting a Fay cullen ring that I am drooling about, man, I am impossible. I just love everything and dam* it, it's driving my husband crazy.
Actually my husband told me that if I gave his s** everyday, I could get sparklies all the time. I don't know if he's serious about it, but I am thinking about his deal. ;) Sounds totally wrong doesn't it? ;)

Hi ancienthills

You might know I'd find my way here eventually :D

Sugar, that 5+ one would have gone really well with my e-ring, but as you've already asked Santa for it, I'll let you have it.

.......from the side.

VERY nice!

Pookarina 10-28-03 02:55 AM

I love those Deco rings...now you are speaking my language.

However, I must say, Amethyste, there is nothing wrong with a deal which involves giving s@x to your hubby everyday for sparklies.

I think it would be great to do it everyday for free!!
I mean, he IS your hubby!

Please remind us of the story on your ring (or post a link to the thread where you did) :D

Amethyste 10-28-03 08:15 PM

Is your natural OEC from Fay Cullen?
