No, I beg to differ! Your arm looks so slender and elegant - goes well with the bracelet! I hope you'll find the pink pearl of your choice in Suzhou. Garnets, you say? Wow, the crimson hues are really nice! Enjoy wearing all this pretty stuff!
Thanks for all the compliments! I really wanted something pearly for my avatar, but that happened to be a very nice shot of my garnet ring (Shiliu shi in Chinese) - as good as you can get on 4 MP macro setting anyways. I still can't find a pink pearl I like so I want to leave it for later, maybe in Suzhou. Yeah, that's my rather fat and furry arm! It's supposed to be two crystal-encrusted butterflies. LOL
Hi Raisondetre! It was great to visit your page here! I enjoyed looking at the pearl and non-pearl stuff. The bracelet looks very elegant on your (I assume) arm! The crimson ring that you now have as an avatar is also quite charming - what stone is it? Cheers!
Ah, the non-pearl bracelet/bangle? It's sterling silver plated with white gold. I believe those are Swarovski crystals. The rest of the rings are just sterling silver (they said it's plated with something but at US$5 or so I don't believe it) with Austrian crystal or cubic zirconia (CZ rings were about US$10 each, can't remember which ones).
I can't believe people actually noticed the album! I'm too lazy to post in on new threads, but will update my albums as soon as I get new stuff.
Hi Raisondetre - I thought I had answered your earlier pm, but obviously it didn't go through, so please don't think I was avoiding it! I would love to catch up in Sydney sometime - whereabouts are you?
Will try to take some today - very cloudy so lighting isn't the best. I'm just so keen to get a new camera (well, I don't actually *need* one) ... There were some unusual colors which I'm sure are natural - kinda greenish silver.
