@NurseMarriedToAFarmer:  I own several RHRs. One my Fiance gave me forever ago that migrated from my left middle finger to my right after we got engaged because they look weird on the same hand. Another I bought in Greece and was 10 euros. A third I bought myself for like 50 bucks because I loved it, and I still don’t know if its real peridot or not (it was originally over a hundred dollars). The last one is my class ring, which my parents paid for. At this point I’ve decided to buy another RHR when I see the right one, and it will probably be a couple hundred dollars. I don’t think Fiance will get me another ring for a long time because he keeps saying “I already got you a ring”. (before and after engagement lol, before because I wanted an ering, after because I’m obsessed with wedding bands)

I’d buy myself a RHR in a heartbeat.  I dont think I’d like a ring I really wanted if my husband bought it for me vs me just buying it myself.   I bought myself this everday RHR, it was 1500.

I think the idea of a “right hand ring” was (like the diamond engagement ring) invented by jewelers in a marketing campaign to sell more jewelry.  That being said, I still love the idea because I love jewelry.  πŸ™‚  I also think the original idea behind a RHR is that it’s something women buy for themselves as a sign of their own personal success.  For example, one of my mom’s good female friends (and clients) gave her a right hand ring to celebrate her starting her own business.  So it’s really meaningful to her because of that.  I plan to buy myself a RHR to celebrate when/if I achieve certain career milestones that I have in mind.  And I don’t plan on giving myself a budget.  πŸ™‚  So yeah, I think it’s perfectly fine, if not expected, for you to buy your own.

No, but I want one!  I’d love a pink morganite rose gold ring.

Buy it! It doesn’t sound like you do that thing all the time so I say go for it this once. Also, have you considered having your other RHR’s re-set into yellow gold? I just had a peridot ring re-set from YL to WG (simple 6 prong solitaire band) and it was not as much as I expected (less than $100 bc the jeweler kept the YG as scrap). Just a thought!

@pinkshoes:  I can’t see the photo πŸ™

@Rouquine:  You read my mind Hun! It’s either that or more aquamarines. My e ring is a lab pink sapphire and 2aquamarines but  they’re my sons and fis birthstones so I just want more bling!!

@wrkbrk:  all my other rings are from Claire’s and Arden’s so they are throw away stuff. Right before I got engaged my 3stone crystal white banded beauty went through the was and was destroyed. And now that I know what real jewelry should fit like I can’t o back!

Other than etsy, where do you beesget yours from?
