    @howtobeawife:  I voted for earrings, but I’m not really a jewelry person.

    @howtobeawife:  I like both!  I think the earrings would be timeless; however, the pearl pendant is certainly beautiful and unique.  I’d probably choose the pendant.

    What are you looking for? I ask, because these 2 pieces have very different vibes. Like, do you want something good for every day wear, or something more special occasion?

    Of the two, I would choose the necklace because it’s something I would comfortably wear to work or out for lunch. We very rarely do anything that requires getting dressed up, so I wouldn’t have much use for those earrings.

    @howtobeawife:  I’d go for the earrings…. Just earlier this morning I emailed my FI a collage of different sapphire rings i’d like.

    @howtobeawife:  Blue, my beautiful birthstone! Afraid white would overtake my engagement ring and i’m not a big PINK girl! Here is the picture I sent him. The two on the left are my favorites!

    The middle right one actually looks exactly like my engagement ring now that I look at it better… just all diamonds…. Weird. LOL

    I love both, I’m having a hard time choosing! But if I had to, I’d go with the necklace. I wear my hair down practically every day and you’d never get to see those beautiful earrings.

    I like the earrings, they’re classic and beautiful. Honestly the necklace looks cheap to me and I feel like it could break easily, just because i had a necklace like that once where the pearls suck out.

    I voted pendant because it’s something you could wear and enjoy on a more daily basis and also because I think it’s higher quality *for what it is*.  The earrings, on the other hand,  strike me as  an imitation of a much more expensive piece of jewelry.

    For that price, it is not the end of the world if the pendant had to be replaced one day.

    @howtobeawife:  The earrings!  Wait for one of those 30% offers at Kohls when you can also get Kohls cash and then do the earlybird/night owl promotion.  You’ll get yoru jewelry like 85% off.  My husband bought me 1 karat diamond earrings ($1800 at Macys) for less than $400, and he got Kohls cash too, which later bought him a pair of sneakers and 2 sweaters.  Love Kohls!
