At Last...

I finally figured out how to upload a picture of the ring. For those who were asking, I posted it back with the original post about the ring so it makes sense (for future readers? I don't know). And yes, the picture is somewhat blurry; I lost the instruction booklet for my camera and can't for the life of me figure out how to take a close-up picture. But I did figure out how to make a movie of the ring. And how to take a picture of the ring in black and white. And without a flash. And with no red eye. *sigh*

And while we're discussing my issues, I would like to cordially request that you refrain from mocking my giant man hands. Truth be told, although I hate my hands I had learned to live with the injustice of not being born with beautiful long slender fingers by reasoning that my hands were more result-driven (i.e., I am pretty darn strong and I've always been a good painter...so that's nice and all). Or I thought I had accepted my chunky hoofs - until I realized I would have to post a picture of my giant lobster claws on the Internet. Enjoy!

It's fantastic! I see no evidence of man hands, and am totally jealous of said beautiful ring in all of its pear-shaped glory. Well done you!

(Sorry- there was a grammar error the first time. It looks like I'm a bit too tired for my own good.)

hi christena - i think you need to go to the original post to see the pic. if you click on the link embedded within this post it will bring you there (the post is called "you want diamonds in a ring of gold" - then scroll to the bottom of the post. tell me if you still can't find it. ;-)

E&E, it looks fantastic! And I agree with Peony; definitely not a man-hand to be seen.
