My cousin (who I adore!!!) is moving overseas in October and so my family and I have been racking our brains to decide on her farewell present. She is a sweet person and we all love her to bits – we’re all going to miss her very much!
We have a large extended family so we’ve decided all to pitch in to buy one big present instead of individual ones = luggage.
She’s always loved browsing through vintage jewellery but never buys anything for herself – so I was leaning towards getting her a nice ring or necklace until I stumbled upon these THREE BEAUTIES on ebay (with awesomely modest price tags)!
The top left is a morganite set in rose gold; top right is a sapphire ring with diamonds; the last ring is a 8mm ruby set in platinum
The specs are: The morganite is approx 1ct and is a new ring; the sapphire has been pre-owned, not sure about the specs; the ruby (pre-owned) is 8mm and has been enhanced (ie treated).
All three are gorgeous and fits her bubbly personality but we (the family and I) have NO IDEA which one to get!
Sooo how about it bees? Which do you like better?

I love the morganite set in rose gold, but the sapphire is a close second. Maybe make a poll to go along with this for easier voting?

@MrsDeco: do a poll so you can get easy results but I would go with the first one with the rose gold it is just so pretty

I’m currently obsessing over a morganite set in a halo of diamonds and rose gold sooooo I vote for that one! =D Your cousin is one lucky girl!

Since you said she loves browsing vintage..I like the blue sapphire one best. Has a very vintage style and is very unique!

I voted sapphire b/c even though I like the morganite best, I think the morganite looks more like an engagement ring and not at all like a farewell present. The sapphire is, IMHO, a better choice for the situation. You can’t go wrong though, because they are all gorgeous!

@RayKay: @inspiredcreations: That’s what I initially thought too! I should have gone with my gut feeling haha Thank you for your votes!
Thanks bees! I’ll make a decision in a few hours time 🙂 and I’ll post photos when the ring arrives so watch this space for some ring porn update next week!

Hmmm this thread has got me thinking…
I agree with @inspiredcreations: that the morganite looks a bit e-ringy? What does everyone else think?
I’m pretty sure my cousin will wear it on her right hand (she’s always mentioned that she never likes wearing jewellery on her left arm and hand because it weighs her down when she writes (lefty – just like me! I seriously think we’re sisters… haha)

they are all so beautiful. and so different. what is her favourite colour? or what colours does she wear most often? that might help you with the decision. that’s how i would pick for myself.

I think #1 is the prettiest, but I voted #2 because you said she loves vintage and it looks most vintage (and it’s pretty!) to me.

1 or 2, but it depends on what color jewelery she already wears. I love rose gold, but I can’t handle mixing metals (on me, on other girls it looks good) so I would want something that fit in with everything else I own. So probably the 2nd ring.
