I love your sapphire! That is such a gorgeous color. I recently chipped my ruby (thank goodness it was under waranty) so I don’t have it right now. But I’m sure I can find some decent before and afters from the hundreds of pics of it I have on my phone. πŸ˜›

lovelyruby :  Oh no! How did you chip your stone? Your ring is probably my favorite on the boards

bumblebug :  Thank you!! I was making toast and I went to pick up a knife and I banged my ring on the wall! ☹ I blame it on being left handed. I guess I hit it in just the right spot and a chunk of it chipped right off. The people at the jewelry store were shocked because apparently that never happens, especially not a chip that big. I guess I’m one of the clutziest people out there! It’ll be another two weeks before the new ruby arrives and I miss my ring so much.

Honestly, I don’t really have before and after pics cuz I clean My ring every couple of days.  While washing my hands I’ll grab the baby toothbrush I keep in the drawer right next to the sink and give it a quick, gentle scrub then continue scrubbing under running water to rinse.  I don’t think I’ve ever gone longer than 3 days at the most and my ring is a sparkle beast every day.

lovelyruby :  That must have been quite a whack! Luckily you’ll be able to get it back in a couple weeks good as new.

nurseybee55 :  lol, I actually had that exact thought.  Maybe I’ll let it go for a few weeks and see how much of an improvement I see!  πŸ˜
