Beautiful Birthstone Ring
As my 40th birthday approached I toyed with the idea of getting a nice grownup birthstone ring. For two years I hinted and hinted to my husband and it happened. I love it. It's gorgeous.
As my 40th birthday approached I hinted to my husband that I wanted a grown up birthstone ring. For a year or more, I hinted and dreamed. A month before my birthday, he surprised me with the most beautiful ring I could wish for.
Beautiful and elegant piece.
For my sister's sixteenth birthday, I wanted to get her something special, so I splurged for this ring in her birthstone, blue sapphire. After I purchased it, I worried like crazy that she wouldn't like it, even though I'd gotten a gift receipt and it wouldn't have been a big deal if she hadn't. Fortunately, she loved it from the first second and would have worn it straight to her birthday dinner had we not needed to exchange it for a half-size down. While the lab-grown sapphire is gorgeous, the beauty of this ring is in the details; the hammered band is simple and elegant, and the gold setting is a very nice touch.
This very unusual and beautiful ring receives compliments every time I wear it around someone new. It is eye-catching, but not gaudy. It is classy while staying unusual. The sapphire is piercing and the hammered silver of the ring really stands out. My husband did good! I really like it!
