    Cash for me cause I never change my earrings.

    @oracle:  I don’t wear earrings much because I have a nickel sensitivity, so I’d probably rather have the cash. (Also, I don’t really love the color of my birthstone.) But those you posted are gorgeous!

    Cash. I have WAY too much jewelry, and I’m actually trying to downsize my possessions b/c we’ll be moving next year. And right now? Cash would be very useful.

    Another vote for cash, I don’t wear earrings.

    Cash. I wear maybe three pairs of earrings, max, and I usually stick with my diamond studs 98% of the time.

    Gimme the money! I prefer monetary gifts for any occasion… I love gift cards too.

    If she doesn’t have a ton of jewelry then she probably doesn’t want it. I would figure most 23-year-olds would go for the cheap type of jewelry over some classic stud earrings anway. I’m 28 and I still wouldn’t really care about birthstone stud earrings.

    Cash. I prefer to only wear clear stones in my ears.

    Call me old fashioned, but I prefer getting an actual gift. Not that I don’t appreciate cash, but there’s something really great about opening up a gift that someone picked out for you. Plus, I actually like those princess cut studs.

    Something not cash because I would never buy myself something fun with cash at all.

    Depends how close I am to the gift giver. This year, family knew I needed cash, since I spent the summer volunteering abroad. But I’d never tell a friend I wanted cash, kwim? And when I give gifts, I never give cash, and try to avoid gift cards even. I guess when you’re more broke than 99% of your gift recipients, the gift of money seems out of place, lol
