Hi all. Just wanted to introduce myself since I have been lurking for so long. (I feel like I have been "frothing at the mouth" to get here! (You know...the cc thing!)

Anyways, I am from the "sunny" Miami (where my sparklies really BLING!). I thought I knew a lot about diamonds but after lurking for so long I realize that I am a "dear in the headlights!" I hope to get in on discussions and learn a whole lot more about diamonds. I am also looking forward to getting to know the very friendly people here at DT. As soon as I can get the DH to take photos of my jewels I'll be sure to post them.

Hi didiamond!

Can't wait to see pics of your sparklies! And don't worry, we were all deer at one time. In a few weeks you'll know more about diamonds than anyone on your block

Hi David...thanks for the welcome. Oops about the deer/dear..now I know who I am and where I'm supposed to be!! hahaha I have to say that I kindof feel like I know you after reading so many of your posts. Your diamonds are absolutely beautiful! If I didn't already have a fancy light yellow (4.01 with trillion side stones), I would certainly be dialing you up!

Ginger..YES, whoohoo!! Thanks for the welcome, but now I have to get him to take pic's! Wonder how long that will take !?!

David..my DH just pointed out that my fancy light yellow is not a 4.01 but a 5.01. Sorry DH! I have to get these things straight!

Thanks tieru..you were too quick. I was still trying to edit the stats. Sorry they're a little yellow looking. I guess I should try in the daytime tomorrow to take a few. These were taken under halogen lights. I didn't realize it was so hard to take "good" photos of jewelry. I'll try again if anyone wants to see them.

Sorry I've been away for a few days, I'm kinda under the weather. What are the odds of catching a cold at the beginning of summer?! Geezzzzz...

Thanks for the compliments on my rings.

WebGal, I have to thank my DH for the help with the pics. I'm glad they weren't red x's. I've seen those and thought it was just my computer! Actually, I would love to get David's opinion on the specs of the pear shaped diamond. Sometimes I just think that it's too elongated. Maybe I'll post a new thread and see what everyone else thinks. I would love some feedback on it.

Keetercat, A favorite? hmmm..I don't think I can really choose just one. I love them all (I do have 2 more in the safe but I haven't dragged them out yet). It's been cloudy here the last few days but I'll try to get the hand shots soon. Thanks for asking!

*FAINTING* Gorgeous!!! Yes, take the other two out and share them. Start another thread on the jewelry photo gallery. Your pieces are to die for! Wear them in good health.

Thank you! You all are too nice. I'm glad I can share them with DTers who truly appreciate them. I took some hand shots outside but I need to downsize them. I promise to get them up in the photo gallery in the next few days.

a few DAYS?????? I cant wait that long! just kidding
they are truly beautiful, all of them.

does your family or any jealous sisters give you a hard time about having them? I just wondered, if its none of my business just say so.

it just seems like a lot of people here on DT have had relatives who just dont understand why people would want diamonds, and give them a hard time about having them. its really a shame. so I hope yours say "wow thats beautiful!" and not something that isnt supportive.

I'm sorry keetercat, I'll try to get them up sometime tonight!

No, I don't have any jealous sisters or ANY sisters for that matter, although I wish I did. My mom doesn't seem too excited when I get new "stuff" and my friends think I'm crazy. So now I don't show them any new pieces. I kindof live in my own world with my diamonds, but that's okay because now I have a new world in DT!

didiamond, you should post these in the jewelry photo gallery because a lot of people might not think to look in here. I almost missed 'em!

And your rings are too pretty to miss! I would love to have an eternity band half that size some day! Really, you have great taste in jewelry, I especially love the pear.

So I guess my next question is.....any bracelets? Earrings? Pendants?
