I have a half-eternity ring, 3 amethysts and 2 czs, to match my engagement ring. given as a token of love and thanks on the handing in of dh's PhD thesis

SPARKLER1 Wed 13-Apr-05 18:50:08

I have two eternity rings. Dh bought them when each of dds were born. The one he gave me when dd1 was born is diamond and sapphire and the one for dd2 is diamond.

SoupDragon Wed 13-Apr-05 18:51:01

Yep. Mine is my maternity ring, given on the birth of DS1. Platinum band with 12 diamonds spaced out round it. Still badgering him for DS2s maternity ring.

BubblesDeVere Wed 13-Apr-05 18:52:31

I don't have one but would love one.

chonky Wed 13-Apr-05 18:53:40

I was given mine when dd was born. It sounds identical to SoupDragon's, except it has a pink diamond (worn on the underside) to mark dd's birth.

ponygirl Wed 13-Apr-05 18:53:59

Yes, I do. It's white gold, like my wedding ring and engagement ring (solitaire diamond). It looks like this one here (you have to click on diamond rings at the top, then select ring type eternity and it's the one at the top, but in white gold). Dh ordered it the day he was awarded his PhD to thank me for all my support. It would have been a surprise but he had to ring me to check my ring size!

ponygirl Wed 13-Apr-05 18:54:31

Ha ha ha! Just seen your post purpleturtle. Snap!

marthamoo Wed 13-Apr-05 18:56:15

I do - dh gave it me when we found out I was pregnant with ds1 (we weren't married then). It's a half eternity ring really: gold with 10 tiny (we were very poor!) channel set diamonds.

SPARKLER1 Wed 13-Apr-05 18:57:06

Chonky I love the sound of the one pink diamond to show birth of dd. That is such a lovely idea.

binkie Wed 13-Apr-05 18:59:10

mine's my engagement ring, diamonds and sky blue sapphires - about 30 tiny sparkly stones going all the way round

for ds I got a picture
did I get anything for dd? can't remember


Blossomhill Wed 13-Apr-05 19:00:09

No but I want one. I hope dh is reading this

Surfermum Wed 13-Apr-05 19:00:23

I'm not really big on jewellery so we got a camcorder when dd was born instead!

SaintGeorge Wed 13-Apr-05 19:02:10

2, one for each DS

DS1 - Half-eternity band with 4 amethysts, alternating with 3 diamonds.

DS2 - Small oval cut amethyst, surrounded by 12 diamonds.

bunny2 Wed 13-Apr-05 21:08:09

im getting one soon but my fingers are still puffy and I want them to go down a bit. Love the pink diamod idea - might get one pink stone and one blue one (for dd and ds( plus lots of diamonds of course!

RTMTMML Wed 13-Apr-05 21:10:01

no and I think that after almost 15 years I deserve one!

JoolsToo Wed 13-Apr-05 21:11:04

no - I'm not a jewellery person really and I don't like a lot of rings on one finger.

Wouldn't say no to a new diamond though!

Lonelymum Wed 13-Apr-05 21:12:45

Not an eternity ring, but dh gave me jewellery for each baby's birth. My plan is to give them the jewellery some time in their lives - maybe when they marry - and the boys can give it to their wives or daughters as they see fit. (Each piece of jewellery contains that child's birthstone.

cori Wed 13-Apr-05 21:14:06

I got mine as a present for the birth of DS.

Gold band with 7 diamonds. We had been married 6 years.

Bozza Wed 13-Apr-05 21:23:13

No. And big fat nothing for when DS was born and a bottle of champers for when DD was born because I asked for it. DH seems to think you have to be married 25 years to qualify - so only 18 to go.

Nemo1977 Wed 13-Apr-05 21:31:56

i have a white gold eternity ring that does a criss cross thing and has 10 diamonds in it
I got it when ds was born [our first baby]

jenkel Wed 13-Apr-05 21:45:38

I have a platinum eternity ring with 2 tiny pink diamonds set in, one for each dd. Matches my wedding ring and engagement ring

biglips Wed 13-Apr-05 22:12:07

mine is 18ct gold with 0.5 ct diamonds- 5 stones (like a band shape style ring).. DP proposed to me last year.

leander Wed 13-Apr-05 22:46:08

Yes got mine when ds was born its 18ct gold with about 12 diamonds,i haven't got it on at the moment cause fingers are swollen from being 39+ pregnant

Frizbe Wed 13-Apr-05 22:47:33

no, but what a fantastic idea, I must badger dh to get me one!
