BLING ATTACK!!

To celebrate losing 49lbs in weight (and counting) I decided I deserved a present. I'd seen the most gorgeous pink ring in a local jewellers, but walking my beloved past it, commenting on its beauty etc didn't have the desired effect. I went for my best pleading look, but got his "dream on sunshine" face ...

So anyway - I saw one online that looked a bit like it and it was quite a lot cheaper (being silver and semi precious rather than platinum and diamonds!!) so on impulse I bought it, and here it is ...

There's just one problem - in my enthusiasm I didn't stop to check out the dimensions, and now it's arrived I'm wondering if it might be just a teensy weensy bit BIG?? You know, ostentatious, flashy, nay even VULGAR? (which is definitely what my mother would say).

I do rather love it however, and its very VERY sparkly, much more than it looks in the picture. Go on ... tell me the truth, is it perhaps, just a bit.... over the top??? Or should one perhaps go for the big gesture at my advanced age?

PS Sorry about the wrinkly old bag who rushed in and insisted on modelling the ring for the picture. I couldn't stop her and don't know where she came from! Now where did I put that hand cream ...

PPS you know it's actually even bigger than it looks in the picture at 1.5 cms.

Thats a wonderful achievement - well done! The ring is fab and it looks as if you borrowed my hand for the modelling lol. Oh no - can't be mine - your hand has neat nails not chipped faded polish that should have been removed days ago!

Tess said...

It is fabulous..... Wear it proudly, on shopping days and to the hair dresser and out to dinner and just to make a stop at the post ooffice. Wear it....

Vulgar??? Nah ... Big and beautiful ... works for me :0) And every time you get a glimpse of it ... which will be most of the time by the looks of the size of it ... you will be reminded of what an awesome feat you have achieved ... wear it with pride hun ... that's what I say!
Oh and hold out for the real thing too ... you never know ... maybe one day :0)

Nope it's not too big, I love them big myself. Lovely and pink.
Well done on the weight loss xx

Jackie said...

Well you know that 49lbs you lost? I think you just found something to replace one.

Ooh no Rosie, never never is it too big. Yeah, you can call it vulgar if you like, but I wouldn't - it's GORGEOUS and it's not like you can get a ring the size of the weight you've lost, huh? So a sparkly and light catchy reminder is perfect. Iknow what you mean about the wrinkly hand model; have recently upgraded my hand cream to Dove Mature skin. Hate that it's actually a bit better!!

Lynn said...

Yeahhhhhh good for you Rosie, that is a lot of weight to lose. I think you deserve a treat after all that hard work, and keep on dreaming of the real thing, you never know, he may surprise you :)
I am not much for wearing jewelry but I say if "you" like it, wear it!

Linda said...

Well you totally deserve a huge treat...and that looks pretty huge :-) I love it!!! Wear it all the time to remind yourself......
