Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend*

Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend*

As our wedding anniversary is quickly approaching, I like to dream about things the Hubster might buy me… and this year I can’t stop thinking about diamonds. After all, they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right?

Four and half years ago the Hubster got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I saw he had an engagement ring in his hands, but I was too busy saying yes to his beautiful proposal ten times to really get a good look at it. It was much later, after he’d left for the evening, that I really got a chance to meet my first diamond…

…and I love it.

He picked out the ring by himself and gave me a princess cut, white gold, solitaire diamond ring (which is exactly what I would have picked out for myself!!). So really, when he possesses such fabulous diamond picking skills, am I not doing him a disservice by not allowing him to practice—to expand upon this talent?

I thought so too.

I’ve already told the Hubster that for our 10-year wedding anniversary he’s allowed to add a diamond on either side of my current engagement ring… you know, one for each 5 years we’ve been together. I also wouldn’t say no to a second wedding band that sparkles. I thought it was a very thoughtful gesture on my part; I just eliminated any stress of trying to pick out an anniversary gift on that day. Aren’t I a good wifester?? :)

But these days I can’t stop thinking about earrings. I own all these cheap ones (you know, the ones that tarnish after several wears) but I’d really, really love to get a beautiful pair of diamond earrings that I could wear every day. They don’t have to be crazy expensive or fancy, just something simple and elegant. Like me. (hahahahaha)

So ladies, what about you? If you could have your dream jewelery, what would it be?

    Oh, yes. I'd love some diamond earrings too. All I have are the cheap ones that have started to turn green around the edges. Gross!

    I don't wear a lot of jewelery, but some accent pieces are nice every once and a while. I currently have beautiful sapphire necklace that Colin bought me our first year together. The problem is that the sapphire is much lighter than the sapphire on my engagement ring (which does have two small diamonds on either side of the sapphire), so I wouldn't mind getting a darker sapphire for the necklace. Or a new necklace with a darker sapphire and some diamonds might be nice as well…You've really got me thinking now!

    I have a few pieces of really nice jewllery (a tanzanite necklace for my 21st, a Tiffany's necklace/bracelet set, a ring from Argentina) but mostly I love brightly coloured things and so I'll find something slightly strange and get it in every colouor imaginable. They get old quickly but you get to have fun wearing them out! My paperclip earrings are still my favourites!Diamonds would make me too nervous… what if one fell out and you didn't notice or something?

    Hmmm…Tiffany's bracelet, diamond earrings & bracelet, and, of course, a classic string of pearls. That would pretty much cover every occasion for me ;-)

I'd really like a pair when we can afford it!Lauren Jade* I didn't know what that was until I googled it… and holy mother of pearl. I wouldn't say no to one of those either. hahaAndhari* I hope your future hubby does shower you with diamonds! They are SO fun.Classroomconfessions* Take your time!! Engagements (and engagement rings) are so much more special when you're really ready for them.Ashley* Your engagement ring sounds beautiful!!! I've never heard of a sapphire engagement ring before–I'd love to see a picture!!Elle Bee* I also like shiny things. And no, not Nip– I hightailed it out of northern Ontario at 17 and ended up just north of Toronto!Helen* I used to be REALLY afraid that I'd lose my diamond. I'm definitely not a "delicate" lady, but you learn to be careful with your jewelry! I've put my ring through a lot and it's still going strong! :)Erin* I love pearls too!!!! I don't think I'll ever tire of them. It always makes me think of that scene in Anne of Green Gables where Matthew gives Anne her first pearls… I love it.
