Hi all. So sentiment or fun bling? Before we begin, I am married 26 years and DH’s eyes glaze over when I talk about rings! Original ering repurposed yrs ago.
Assuming one cannot be worn as a RHR nor with swollen fingers be switched often, which would you wear?
Choice one: 8.5mm OEC moissy with diamond tapered baguettes (something I had made just because I love bling)
Choice two: 1.35 ct RB heirloom (moms) diamond with side sapphires 1.2tcw that was designed by dear daughter and I as a tribute to my parents.
And of course the requisite pictures…

I detest blinged out jewelry, so I would choose the setting with sapphires.

I love bling and in some cases this might be a difficult choice for me, however, I think the sentimental piece has plenty of bling. Combine that with the meaning behind it and I would definitely wear the sentimental piece.

I’m sentimental so would always go that way.
Strong feelings on bling then ddhb2007:

If it had to be one or the other, I’d go with sentiment and diamond the majority of the time, even though I like the design and proportions of the moissanite. If they both fit properly, why are swollen fingers a big factor? I’d wear the moissanite for fun or when traveling.

Thank you everyone for weighing in. I do love the moissy ring and could wear one as a RHR, but it just feels too blinged out I think. In my profession too, it’s not something I like to portray.
So, I’m doing an experiment, I’m wearing the heirloom piece that I adore and will see how I feel about the moissy ring not wearing it..the sentimental feelings I have for the diamond sapphire is so very strong. Thanks again!
And I know, this is just a stupid thing, but I’ve realized that this is my outlet since losing the folks. I escape to mundane things so I don’t have to think about the real ones as often. therapy session over…sorry 🙂

I could never choose, I love both your rings and would happily wear either, or both!! More generally I would choose sentiment over bling.

Slick: Your Moissy is by far one of my favorites. But I can totally understand the sentimental vaule of some things. Although my DH did upgrade my ring, I still love my little cluster ring that is not even a 1/4 carat. He gave it to me when we were in high school and we were only 17! I still love that ring so much that I still wear it on occasion. Also are we married to the same man, Lol… My husband eyes also glaze over when I look ar rings Btw.. I voted sentimental

Both, on both hands just like that 🙂

Why don’t you just wear both? Maybe switch every week or two? As far as style I prefer the first but I can also appreciate the sentiment of the second.

WowGamerBabe: thank you so much for your compliment! It looks like sentiment wins hands down..I’m leaning that way myself.
pinkshoes: I am afraid of damaging the RHR and find it a little uncomfy, But I’ll try it. Thanks for commenting!
