Good afternoon ladies.

I hope I'm not imposing here. During lunch, sister has put me on mums net chat. We would be very grateful for a quick survey please. I have come out to buy the item below as a gift for my wife who is also mother to our 5 children. However, my sister is confusing me by suggesting a different item. I only have until 3pm today.

I feel the item she is proposing looks slightly like a handcuff and also rather plain, but I'm open to feedback. She will post a photo in a moment.

Many thanks

This is the other item she thinks will get worn more.

I personally like the bracelet/cuff more smile

Pendant vote from me

The necklace

I like the pendant more.

I like them both clearly no help at all grin

I like both. I think the necklace will be used more for special occasions, but the love bangle would get used more often as it would go with more outfits.

Necklace smile

Get them both

Depends. What would your wife prefer? Does she wear bangles? Is she a heart person? Personally I like the simplicity of the bangle but I'd wear a necklace more. So I've been absolutely useless...sorry grin

What sort of jewellery does your wife generally wear? If neither are her 'style' there's no point in either.

Definitely the necklace!

The cuff looks like Lindsay Lohan's house arrest ankle tag.

purplecorkheart Fri 24-Nov-17 13:22:06

I prefer the braclet

You’re asking our opinion on an 18k necklace or a 10k bracelet, really? If you’re going to spend so much it would be better if you actually knew your wives taste

BertieBotts Fri 24-Nov-17 13:22:20

Which is more similar to items of jewellery she already owns? Neither are my taste but I'd pick the bracelet, that pendant looks large ans sparkly, which makes it difficult to carry off without looking tacky. But if she does tend to wear big, sparkly things then it might be alright.

DearMrDilkington Fri 24-Nov-17 13:22:32

I prefer the bracelet

rosareine Fri 24-Nov-17 13:22:43

Love the cuff.

I really don't like the necklace.

It really depends on what your wife is into to be honest.

VladmirsPoutine Fri 24-Nov-17 13:22:49

Go for the pendant. If money isn't an issue then get both. smile

weebarra Fri 24-Nov-17 13:22:53

I prefer the bangle, but that's just my taste as I like more simple jewellery.

Crunchymum Fri 24-Nov-17 13:23:04

Stealth boast much?

Iooselipssinkships Fri 24-Nov-17 13:23:04

How old are DC? The bangle might be more appropriate in terms of getting broken or pulled etc
Now let's talk about my Cartier present for giving such brilliant advice. halo

YoloSwaggins Fri 24-Nov-17 13:23:14

Actually, it's a nice cuff but I'm just biased because I find them so uncomfortable and clunky. What kind of things does your wife wear?

Joinourclub Fri 24-Nov-17 13:24:03

I prefer the bangle. They are quite different styles. Do you normally get successful gifts? Do your wife and sister have similar taste?

PaxUniversalis Fri 24-Nov-17 13:24:24

The bangle. It looks more modern than the necklace and it will get worn more.
