    Susan, I have looked at the CZ in LB for a while but was reluctant to order any. Since you posted the other pair recently, and now this set, no more reluctance – now just anxious to get some – gorgeous – thanks for giving me more reason to spend!

    Linda, I love LB’s cz!
    I’ve posted a few designs with it. My only comment would be to be careful of the lemon ice as it changes colors in different lighting situations. It can look yellow or green.

    Oh, I am sooooo glad you all like these.

    I have the same quartz cut in red and was thinking I might try doing a similar pair with a black CZ….but will wait until winter holiday season for that.

    @ KittyMomLinda: Re: spending, that’s how this board is supposed to work. ;-)

    Hugs to you all, what wonderful support you all offer!
