Not being a diamond person, I can't advise you on the stones & price, but I say DEFINITELY anniversary present for yourself!!! I've done it & plan to do it again. :appl: Why not? You've earned it! Get whatever makes you sing.

I always pick out my own presents...hubby likes it that way. However, I'm not sure about the cut/quality of those
earrings you posted.

Edit - I guess you could always return them if they arent up to par. You wont find anything around here well cut
1 ctw for $1k.

Not married yet, but YES! Many of the married women I know either pick out or even just buy their own gifts, so go for it.


I've seen lots of people here ask for help finding great gifts (or just because!) for themselves too -- I LOVE to see the beautiful pieces (and great deals!) the ladies (and gentlemen) suggest. A lot of them are things I never would have thought to look for.

I do ALL my own shopping, pretty much, 'cause for me, that's part of the fun! For anniversaries, I've consistently been getting eternity bands. I like the idea of having a ring for every year we're married. Eventually, I suppose, I'll run out of fingers ... but I'm sure I'll be able to think of a solution. Eternity ... bracelets? :twisted:

It's sad that you guys can't celebrate properly, though. I understand if the day/night of is taken up by some crucial un-reschedule-able event, but perhaps you'll be able to set a different date to make time for one another and cheer?

I say definitely buy your own present. You get exactly what you want. We tend to pick out our gifts all the time.

Ditto! Surprises are overrated and disappointments are underrated. Get what you want. You deserve it!

what presents you always choose??
My last present I choose was for our 10th anniversary...a 5 stone ring .80 ctw in plat. You can see it in my avatar.
I do have a big birthday coming up at the end of the year and I'm now looking at a 7 stone 1 ctw (or bigger) from ID jewelry.
I also picked out my last birthday gift. It was a setting for a smaller diamond (a pendant). Not all my presents are jewelry
though (wouldnt be in our budget).

Yup, I buy my own anniversary and bday gifts. My DH doesn't mind at all. I say go for it, but you might want to do a bit more research on the earrings you posted.
