End ofy fun money for the month,  but I won some pretty cz and silver rings I want to try out that whole baking a cz thing because it sounds ridiculously fun! 

Although,  maybe my fun money after the wedding will go to a margarita,  that ring on overstock is so pretty!

So my first coz came in today and it looks just like the pic.  I’m actually pretty impressed with it. I can’t wait to bake it,  but i want to clean it really well first. It still looks pretty in the overcast night from my window.

No effect from baking.  Any tips bees? Here’s a shot with the diamonds on my ring,  a badly cut moissanite, and the cz ring, and a second small,  better cut moissey that doesn’t fit on the tester ring. Maybe try to bake it again and see if it can warm it up?

herrera2016 :  There is a small jewellery shop in my town that specializes in antique and vintage items. I’ve always stopped to look in their shop window when I was in that street. Turns out that a school friend of my fiancée works there, so we even got a discount. I’ll definitely shop there again.

So can I count my DIY silver moissey rings as cheap rings?  

I think this round and pear with the setting did cost more than I typically like to spend on a for fun ring,  $44, but setting the stones was fun. The center stone looks so much more white in the setting and beside the blue pear moisseys. I do think I prefer smaller moissey,  number could be because this was the only larger moissey I bought and it’s Really not well cut,  like there are unfaceted areas that are typically faceted in a round cut.

But this 5 stone one is totally my favorite,  it cost $38 to make.  Wow,  it’s good to put a price tag on my new hobby lol. But I mostly made it to get rid of my antsyçness from waiting for my wedding band to be done. 

Alas,  we have gray, overcast skies the past couple of days,  so I can’t show them sparkling in the sun. I’ve also put a moratorium on jewelry buying until after the wedding and move.  Alas,  even cheap jewelry costs money.

So my last eBay ring came in and it’s not as described in the listing. It’s a lovely ring and I think it looks prettier in person Vs the pics the seller uploaded,  but the seller didn’t get the size right.  I wear a size 7 and the ring was listed as size 7, but it won’t even funnier my knuckle. 

Here is it beside an actual size 7 ring:

Sellers listing says he doesn’t take returns and the ring as only $8 with shipping,  but I messaged him anyway to see if he will refund part of the money,  I mean,  shipping was $6, but he sent the ring via USPS without tracking in a normal first class envelope. So like,  $.50, not $6, but whatever,  including care if the item was as described.

I absolutely adore my ring. $135 at the pawn shop, actually. The diamonds are beautiful and sparkly, and the band is so solid.
