After watching the movie and documentary show of "Blood Diamond", I feel so sad when I see diamonds. :(

I got my set of diamond earrings and pendant from my ILs as a wedding present. Bou myself 2 rings with small diamonds and a bracelet with small diamonds before I married. That's it.

Ashamed to show my wedding ring because the diamond is too small to be noticed.

A friend told me, when she bought a diamond ring, it came along with a magnifier. :?

I like diamonds. :wink: Thank God my dh is well trained - my first one was a necklace with a reasonable sized diamond pendant from dh. Then, a Larry diamond wedding ring (good size too). For being a long-suffering wife, I treated myself to a pair of nearly 3K diamond earrings. :celebrate: There are also a few other diamond bracelets and earrings.

The sad part is I don't wear the ring at all as the skin on my fingers are too sensitive to have anything enclosed around it for long esp after a wash or shower. My earlobes are too small and thin to prop up the diamond studs for best effect. I do wear the earrings like once ot twice a year though cause I really like them. As for the rest, I don't think I've looked at them the past few years. :roll:

Although I like diamonds, I am actually much, much more passionate about semi-precious stones. I adore pearls, amber, labadorite, star rubies, amethysts, jades, lais lazuli, corals etc and I wear them a lot. It's great that they are not too expensive cos they are handled not so gently at home. Haha, my dd shares the same passion as me and we like nothing better than to sit down and examine our goodies. :wink: Such a wonderful mother and child bonding time. :celebrate: I'm so glad I've a girl cos she will inherit all these jewelleries from me.
