• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Jeez, looking through this thread makes me happy that I found one happy with a $5 jade ring that I bought in a tourist shop in New Zealand. I proposed four months later, and she broke the ring within days. We've been married for almost ten years now.

Just get it insured and you don’t have to worry

real talk though, I spent 3-something grand at a local jeweler. Had them copy something found online but with some key modifications.

Ended up a good chunk cheaper than the original despite using platinum instead of white gold and being custom designed.

$0 We've been together since 83. But we do have simple gold bands from a good NY jeweler.

Surely someone has cited this statistic. Chances of divorce increase by 38% when the cost of the wedding exceeds $5000.
Is it because that is indicative of likely money problems in the marriage(which we know causes divorce) or being married to a "selfish" woman.

Eleven years ago, I bought a loose diamond on eBay for $3,000, ran out and had it appraised, jeweler wasn't impressed. Seller (guy with a Russian-sounding name who shipped diamond jewelry from a commercial address in Beverly Hills) replaced it with a European round cut stone that then appraised for $12,000. I bought a setting and had it mounted locally. I assumed the Russian was a pawn broker- best case scenario.
