In line with the Grad rings thread, thought it might be nice to have a thread where we can share bling for milestones.

I thought I might share: here is my RHR that I purchased for myself as a congratulations for graduation and gaining full time employment!

4.09ct centre stone - cushion Aquamarine with 14k white gold and diamond pave band.
Finger size: 5 1/4

Thanks so much :)

Yes, it was long degree 6 years and to finally finish was a fantastic achievement. This ring definitely symbolises the milestone.

Pretty, pretty. So much better than a traditional class ring.

congrats! More pics?!
Ditto! More pics please... I bought myself a celebratory bling piece as well, and nice I'm back on my laptop I'll post some pics. What was the celebration? Surviving a full school year with working 6 to 8 hours if overtime after school. Lol. I wanted to take a little bit if that money and treat myself... Pics to come :tongue:

Sounds like a perfect excuse Amy!

When I get home i'll use my canon to take some more that was only from my iphone!

In Australia we don't do class rings (I don't think) so this was a nice way to celebrate :)

Great idea for a thread, mif - and GORGEOUS ring! Congrats!

I had been eyeing off this pendant for months (.25ct RB surrounded by .25ct halo), as I was preparing to apply for a specialist training year in my chosen field of nursing (operating theatre). 30ish people applied and there was only one position available, so I told myself I would buy the necklace if I received the offer, which I honestly didn't think I would. Well I was wrong! I was offered the position, gladly took it, and that pendant and a new chain came home to mamma :bigsmile:

That was 8 years ago, and I still love love love it!

Thanks mif! :wavey:

Amy, I love that rationale! I've got some 'overtime' diamond studs on their way to me, actually... well that's my excuse now, anyways, thanks to you! :bigsmile:

Ladies these are very lovely pieces!!! Congratulations to all for their achievements that became the reason for the purchase of those beauties :appl:
Well, my celebratory bling is not as sparkly as the previously posted :) In March 2010, just a few weeks before my wedding, i completed my PhD after years of hard work...This plain Tiffany ring was bought to remind me that hard work pays back!!!

I love this thread--everybody's celebratory bling is beautiful! I really love that you ladies set a goal for yourself and got yourself a little reward when achieving it! I'm a big fan of buying jewelry for yourself and that fact that you can attach that jewelry to a long-awaited goal is even better!
