So a few days ago I posted a picture of my CZ ring on a thread here. Today I was reading about CZ’s clouding over after time so I went to google to see what cloudy CZs look like. About 4 pages down, I’m staring at a picture of MY ring on MY hand. Ahhhh so creepy! And the worst part is, it’s not even cloudy yet it comes up under a cloudy CZ search!! No fair 🙁
After all that I still don’t even know what cloudy CZs look like…

@Gingersnap: Put a little lotion in your palm then rub your hands together while wearing your ring. You’ll probably get a film over the cz that makes it look clouded and diminishes the sparkle. It will give you a basic idea.

@Gingersnap: that is scary, to see your hand on some random website somewhere. i googled my name once and it came up with some 4 year old picture of me my junior year in college at a research symposium….and i’m so careful not to have any of my information public anywhere. it was very very strange. just goes to show you, once it’s out there it’s fair game for repost anywhere!

Awww 🙁 It’s probably the image from your weddingbee post, which probably had the words “CZ” and “cloudy” in it. Sucks though!
It doesn’t mean someone re-posted it on another website, it just means that Google Images is picking up your photo in its search.

Unfortunately, you should never assume that anything you put on the internet, even privately somewhere, won’t end up in the public domain. It’s not that scary as long as you’re careful about what you put online.

Seriously? You posted a picture on the internet and are shocked that it came up in a Google Image search? Wow. (Although I suppose I can understand how that would feel weird! I guess I just hear too much about people Googling themselves to really be shocked.)
@KatyElle: is right. Just rub a little lotion over your ring, and you should get a feeling of what a cloudy CZ looks like (though if there’s no pictures out there, I don’t know how credible the information you got re: CZ’s going cloudy would be).

@Jenniphyr: Not shocked that it’s out there, I knew it would be and I’m fine with that. It was just so weird to come across my own picture on google images, that’s never happened before.
