Every 6 months, I'm diligent about going to the jewelry stores to have my diamond earrings and wedding ring inspected and cleaned. I have to go to two different stores.

At store #1 is where I get the earrings inspected. They tell me every time that I can upgrade to a larger pair and get full credit for my current pair. I always decline, since I actually like my current pair. Hubby picked them out for me. I never take them out as they're in my second hole. But I would like a second pair, to wear in my first hole. A pair of euro-wires, like in the picture.

So I asked about them, and they had a pair in white gold, 2/3 carat, for $800.

And this is why I don't buy jewelry for myself.
