I have always loved garnets and have been looking for a necklace and earring set for several years. I have bought a really nice black dress for my work Xmas Party - in January, this is the one occasion of the year that I get a chance to dress up. I recently found the set of earrings and necklace that I have been looking for - absolutely love it! And it looks fantastic with my dress. Now, my gorgeous 17 year old has let slip that he's spent a lot of money, certainly for him, I don't know how much, on jewellery for me to wear to the party. I don't know what to do.
That's not true, I do know what I'll do, I'll wear what he's bought, but AIBU to be just the teeny weeniest bit disappointed not to be wearing my garnets?

Good excuse to find another chance to go out!

Can't you put his on and change them to yours when you get there, or will there be photos on Facebook etc?

Wear what he has bought out of the house and then change for the party? Ok a bit of a cop out but he gets to see your wearing it and you get to wear what you want?! Assuming he isn't going with you! Also make sure no photos!

He sounds like a really lovely boy.

Aw bless.

Personally i'd end up wearing what my DC bought (as long as it's nice. if not, go with the wear it and secretly change it idea).

You never know, you might like what he has bought even more - if you've been wanting a garnet set for a while and he knows it may be that's exactly what he has got you? Sounds like a lovely lad and you will hopefully have two beautiful garnet sets to interchange for evenings out!

I've been very good,and not even peeked at what he bought, even though he gave it to me to put in my handbag. It might even be a bracelet! Got my fingers crossed.
And he is a lovely lad, I'd never not wear what he bought for me.
