Sean~ thank u for such an elaborate reply… I’ve been away in the garden, (FINALLY PLANTED MY TOMATOES BEFORE THE STORM COMES)…having dinner out, and other such shenanigans…..now I need a snack before I reply. :cattongue:
Hope you’re all-well and missed you all here; did you ladies save me some rings at least??? Where is lovely Cindy and Vette and Sheba, Sean and I see ducati and Nettea, Karen and Own5Pets, MoonCat and where is Massha and lovely Snow and Taci and Kim!!
Just been trying to read up here, WOWZA Sean took the Queens jewels while I was gone! Vette has hit the lottery for her booty box of jewelry and Sean got a Rarities #@@#…. Oh Dear me…. I see her ring and I ordered that one too, have yet to pick it up from my neighbor because I did my hospital shift after getting home from Europe and have such awful jet lag…:womanmad:
Wait, Cindy has a blood clot???? OMG is she okay ladies!!!! I need to email her stat on that one, holy molasses, I missed so much. Boy, I hope Cindy is well and a clot is so, so dangerous she needs to adjust her Coumadin and is it in the veins below the knee (=distal DVT) or in the veins in your thigh or pelvis (= proximal DVT)? Wow I need to email here and see how she is doing, bless her heart, I know she knows what to do but I want to check in on her too!! <3 :heart: :heart: :womansad:
Hi Sophia, don’t think we have met, or have we? Love your cat too!! Southernlights is good too and Karen has some lovely rings which are heirloom for sure, I’m drooling so badly!! IP I see too has been in and Sunshine too is well and how is Rachel? Was looking for her lovely face but she placed her doggy cutie pie in picture. Okay not completely caught up and worried about Cindy more then anything…. Oh boy, life keeps rolling people….:womanembarrassed:
Not completely caught up and worried about Cindy….
My father is in a rehabilitation center and is completely blind…He had an Ischemic Stroke on the left part of his brain and he has extensive brain damage. We tried to care for him at home but it was just impossible for my Mother and I to manage and he was not getting enough therapy to help him, plus he stopped eating drinking and needed an IV for fluids and to replace nutrients. He is in a bad way and he did not know I left to come home.
My Mother is exhausted and needs help, so I think he’ll have to stay in a long-term care facility for good. Whether he makes it to the summer IDK, after reading his medical papers I feel…He honestly will not see this year out. I will go back when I can but I doubt I will see him alive anymore. I wished him a safe journey home to Our Lord and left a mess but I was so happy to see my darling hubby and children and my pets plus my little blue boxes will be waiting for me…
My father has really lost all sense of taste and smell, plus the left side of the brain is responsible for verbal and logical functions including language (listening, reading, speaking, and writing), thought and memory involving word…I could go on but…I won’t, too much for us.
I’m good and love seeing my hubby and children but really out of it AND, The Rangers just won!!!!!!
OMG GOOOOOO RANGERS!!!!! YES, New York baby cakes, all the way, love my Rangers!!!!!
LOVE YOU ALL and missed you lots!!! XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
I’ve got to hand it to Hsn. They DO sell you on a fantasy.
Thank you for your extremely informative three part expose on treatments in gems. Actually, you could write a giant book on the subject, so you were only scratching the surface. Treatment is so prevalent, it’s amazing to find untreated gems in this day and age.
I will also add coating to your informative posts, like mystic topaz for example, and they coat various quartz, black spinel (to make it irridescent like black diamond), and other gems, but this is not a stable treatment.
If people are fine with treated gems, just make sure the treatment is stable, and you use proper precautions when taking care of it. For example, I wouldn’t put a clarity enhanced gem in an ultrasonic cleaner. Heating only (no other treatment) is typically stable, but not so much irradiation (color fades after a while), and forget about lead glass filled rubbish "rubies." At least HSN charges prices that are not out of line for highly treated gems, and they have a great return policy. I would die if I paid thousands for a lead glass filled ruby for example. Enjoy your gem and jewelry shopping.
Have I simply missed it, or did Snow ever report in on her pieces today? I know she has so much going on between being sick and her flooding issues, but I was anxious to hear if her latest purchases were all good. Also, Ducati, did you get your prasiolite yet? I feel like my brain is bouncing all over the place today trying to keep up with posts on next to no sleep. LOL.
The tsavorite/sapphire pendant on Carol is glowing and shining like crazy. They haven’t even done a close up but I just love tsavorite. I hope she can bring us more of it!!!!
I would love to see this style bracelet in other gemstones.I hope she brings it back at least in a similar style and tcw.
ohman…..that bracelet again……killer!
Neon appatite is so pretty. I’m not into the ring but the neon appatite is giving me a appatite for jewelry. :womanhappy:
diamonds on in 50 minutes….then…2 hrs of rarities!!
