My daughter graduates college on Friday and my husband and I wanted to give her something special. She''s not a big jewelry person [hardcore athlete, went thru school on a full ride] but has started to appreciate finer jewelry. We''re hoping she likes this and if not Mom will gladly take it off her hands!!! It''s a .61 carat princess cut ruby with .40 ctw of diamonds surrounded and on bail and is set in 18 kt white gold with a bead chain. What do you think?

WOW!!!!!!

I think it''s absolutely gorgeous! Very very special.

It''s especially fun that it''s a princess cut...don''t see that very often.

Have you given it to her yet? Is she just thrilled?

Thanks guys! I just love the color. The pictures just don''t do it justice.

Widget, we haven''t given it to her yet. We''re are going up there on Thursday and taking her out to dinner and will give it to her then.

Cind11, we got the pendant from our local jeweler. The name is Rolland Jewelers. They are family owned and carry some very nice jewelry.

I think it''s downright gorgeous, and a beautiful, thoughtful present!!! It''s a wonderful piece to commemorate such an accomplishment. (And I''d gladly run away with it too if she doesn''t!!)

BEAUTIFUL!!!
I only wish my parents had as good taste (mom owns one, count it, ONE piece of jewelry: her fused wedding set).

She''ll love it!

It is beautiful! I have a chain like that and *love* it. It is actually my favorite because of the sparkle. Let us know if she likes it!

How beautiful and congratulations to your family for her accomplishment! Just a note on the bead chain, it is on the fragil side because I have borken 2 gold chains like that myself. It may be helpful to remind her to not wear it during her sport competitions. :)

I love it but I am very partial to rubies...I am sure she will love it and cherish it...is ruby her birthstone?

Thanks sooo much, everyone. I just hope that she likes it as much!

Zhuzhu, thanks so much for the caution on the chain. I''ll be sure to let her know not to wear it during workouts or games although she usually just wears her number on a chain.

Diamondfan, no her birthstone is actually emerald but she doesn''t like green so much and she does like red.

Thanks again everyone. We''ll find out if she likes it tomorrow night.
