I wonder if Marilyn's diamonds are real?
I love anything sparkly and I adore jewellery. I'm quite boring though I just wear the same jewellery all the time. I don't have any diamonds, apart from some diamond stud earrings which are the only earrings I wear apart from pearl studs. A boy once bought me a gorgeous antique diamond ring but I gave it back when we split up. All the rings and pendants I wear now are made of semi-precious stones.
The Actor has seen my taste in diamond engagement rings when we've been window shopping (three carat plus solitaire) and his eyes popped out of his head when he saw the prices. He's in no rush to spend that kind of money. Luckily I don't mind what I wear as long as it sparkles.
My belly button
I have a big "diamond" in my belly button. Yes, this is my actual belly button. The Actor's eyes will roll when he sees this and he'll be like "Have you taken a photo of your belly button and put it on your blog?" Well, yes I have. I couldn't find a picture on the internet I liked. Some of them looked a bit deformed and quite put me off. I'm not actually that yellow it's the lighting in my sitting room this evening. I have no idea what this one's made of, it could even be crystal. I've had it for absolutely years.
I had my belly button pierced when I was twenty five at a place in Clerkenwell called Into You which was highly recommended as the place to go. The chap who did it was brilliant. There was no time for any fuss he just put some antiseptic on and went straight in with a banana shaped needle! Thankfully it didn't hurt as the adrenalin kicked in immediately. When you first have it done they give you a surgical steel hoop with a big ball bearing thing on it. I didn't want a dull looking steel one so I asked him for something a bit jazzier, which he thought was hilarious. He humoured me and came back with a pink crystal ball bearing instead. I was much happier with that! They tell you to take it easy after you've had it done but never one to take advice I went straight to the pub to show all my friends.
I've always thought I'd get a tattoo but I've never got round to it. All the ideas I originally had have now been done so it's sort of fallen by the wayside. I do like them though and I'm always interested in other people's.
Amethyst and ruby coloured
I have lots of different ones, these were the only two I could locate but I have blue topaz, yellow topaz, emerald green and aquamarine too. I like the ones with big stones and I'm not keen on dangly bits swinging off them.
When I first had it done I had one like this but in surgical steel with a pink crystal ball bearing. Can you imagine me with a plain grey surgical steel one? That would be too dull.
