Has anyone seen nice, relatively small ruby and pearl rings?
I would like to have one someday, as ruby is my birthstone and pearl is my DH’s – that would make a nice family ring to pass down; and I would buy one that’s slightly too big for me and wear it during pregnencies when I’m ballooning up.
So, anyway, I’m not a shopper and I’ve never been good with jewelry, so I was wondering if you amazing ladies might have suggestions for me?

Here are a few I found through google. Hope it helps (sorry the pics are kind of big)

Those are pretty! Just be careful with the pearls – they are very easy to scratch/chip, and can be discolored by chemicals (if you clean wearing it or cook with lemon juice getting on your hands, etc).

@crayfish:really?? That sucks! Thanks for letting me know… Too bad I can’t change my DH’s birthstone – finding pearl and ruby rings is not easy, and now even if I find it it will be hard to keep beautiful… 🙁

I’m assuming your DH’s birth month is June, while you can’t change that, you can change his birthstone!! =] There are several alternatives. I found a list for you:
Using some of these stones instead could help you choose a sturdier ring.

Yeah you really have to be careful with pearls… I’ve gone through quite a few peal necklaces and rings because they chip and break so easily. A few of them also got discolored. I hear you’re not supposed to wear perfume, hairspray, and certain types of makeup when you wear pearls, because the chemicals are too rough on the porous surface of the pearl.

@Goodie: Wow, this is really cool!
Ok, maybe I’ll go with Ruby/White Sapphire then!
Anyone has suggestions?
