Cocked up and told DH I didn't want a birthday present (am 40 next month) as he's already organised a weekend away and we are meant to be cutting back as buying another property soon.
However, I lied....
I overheard him talking about buying me a bell tent, which I do love, but currently we don't have the space and are unlikely to use it for ages. It would have been close on £500, so bonkers. I couldn't confess of earwigging so said I was ok present free / the party was more than enough etc. Which I would much still rather be if the alternative was getting a £500 present I currently had no space or use for.

I'm loving the idea, if I can hint enough, of an 'eternity' ring - but we really can't spend a lot; £100-125 max I reckon. I tend to wear jewellery all the time (bracelet, necklace and wedding band - I don't take any of them off) so it needs to be easy to wear. I could wear it on my right hand instead if next it wedding ring if it was chunky, I don't wear anything on that hand. Please inspire me!

I like chunky, but wearable

What about bezel setting? Very wearable setting

Google search 'bezel set eternity ring'

Watching with interest.
I'm 40 this year too. Can't afford an eternity ring, but would love a special chunky ring.

Love the one you linked to nance.

Look on outnet - there's a shiny monica vinader ring that might work

I've linked this before, but it's a great looking ring. A friend of mine has it and I covert it!!!

You could look at second hand rings - Often better quality and a fraction of the new equivalent plus some lovely designs

Agree with WildBill. Secondhand jewellery is very good value for money, and often lovely quality, though does take more hunting down to find what you want.
