What would you pick?

DH is encouraging me to buy a ring to commemorate the birth of our daughter. I don't have to be asked twice!

Have any of you any Pinterest picks saved to show me as inspiration? Or rings you have yourselves?

I already have an eternity ring from years ago, so was thinking of something different haven't a clue!

(Yes I realise this is a very jammy quandary...blush )

Oh how fun! What month was she born in? What colour gold do you like, what kind of style jewellery do you usually go for?

September so Sapphire! Which I looove so happy to have sapphire in there.

Forgot the metal would have to match lol. Everything else I have is white gold. Yellow looks rank on me.

As for style, I haven't a clue!

I've had my eye on this for ages. Think it is stunning in the rose gold

Completely the wrong price range though....

Perp Sat 17-Dec-16 14:26:27

hmm I agree with greenolives!
$8000? When the op clearly stated her budget!
They don't put POA on rings that are in that kind of budget either!

Have a look around op. Many jewellers have sales at this time of year.
I love diamonds but never buy brand new now, if you look in vintage shops or the pre owned section of many jewellers you can get so much more bang for your buck. Don't be put off by secondhand, diamonds are a couple of million years old to begin with anyway, don't forget.

This is beautiful!

SapphireandSteel Sat 17-Dec-16 15:51:27

That's really flipping gorgeous.

I had this aquamarine rose gold ring made as we used a stone we already had but this looks in the right price range.

Oops sorry, I read your budget as £12k

Independent jewellers every time- I was in one today buying a few stocking fillers and a lady had commissioned a sapphire and diamond ring- it was stunning. Art Deco style but 'chunkier'- really wearable. There was a shop full of (jealous) people oohing and aaahing!

Have a look at Glamira, every ring can be spec'd with the stones of your choice - I have a lovely amethyst and diamond one from them, but it could just as easily be sapphire. for example, I have this with amethyst centre stone and diamond accents. They have loads of choice.

I had a ring like this made. I had one diamond already and it cost £1000.

blueistheonlycolourwefeel Sun 18-Dec-16 14:21:51 and here is my whole board!!! But it's not taking into account your budget. grin

Personally I'd go for something a bit more contemporary


Or this

Maybe something like this

Beautiful unusual 1920s sapphire and diamond platinum ring at Butter Lane antiques (and below budget!):

SapphireandSteel Mon 19-Dec-16 13:50:14

OMG that one is amazing....

blue your Pinterest board is lush!

SapphireandSteel Mon 19-Dec-16 13:51:19

This hasn't got that vintage look but I still love the unusual east-west stone. What do you all think?

For the birth of our son i got Pomellato nudo with blue topaz, birth date engraved inside. They are so beautiful and you can choose from different colors.

Really like that sapphire, I went shopping for necklaces yesterday, same budget as you, lovely time, some good sales on at moment, 30% off in a few places
