What''s your next "big" anniversary? Do you have a particularly coveted item all picked out?

I know it''s kinda silly ...because by the time I actually GET to my 5 yr. or 10 yr. anniversary -- I''m SURE my tastes/desires etc will have changed ... but: I have to dream SOMEHOW! And x-mas and/or 2007''s not shaping up to be blingy for MOI. So...

For my future 5th? 10th? anniversary I will dream of: THIS PINK BAND DAMMMISSSIT!

I''ve loved Jennifer Garner''s version & Kitten Kat''s beauty ... but this is a kind of Ritani-like, channelesque yet super teensy sparkly beaut that''s PERFECT FOR MEEEEEEE!

It has usurped any other blingy fantasies I have ever had. It calls to me in the night. It''s twinkling ghost levitates imaginarily between my e-ring & w-band ... SIGH.

DH was away at a conf and during our catch-up call ... out of nowhere ... I blurt "Do you think I get a sparkly pink diamond eternity band for our 10th anniversary?" He just laughed about how RANDOM that question was & quipped something about my lingering bling-lust. The verbal equivalent of an

. But the important thing is he did not say NO!

You can tell how spontaneous it must have been because I didn''t aim for anniversary #1, #2 or #5.

HOW ABOUT YOU GUYS??? Am I the only crazy-go-nutzo long-term luster???

I''m getting my 20th anniversary Leon Mege ring this week. It was finished last week but wanted Jonathon to take pics for me. So I am done for now, but maybe a nice watch for my 25th?? Who knows....

My next big one is the 20th, but it''s 3.5 years away (oh my word, am I really only 3 years from my 20th?! How old am I?). It''s in my mind, though . . . maybe a nice 5-stone ring?

Every once in a while it crosses my mind that I want another major diamond, either for my 10th anniversary (in 2 years) or my 40th birthday (in 4 years) but I can't even imagine what I want be lusting after by then. Maybe a 5 ct emerald cut with traps on the sides and a three sided pave band? (Not that I've been thinking about this at all, LOL.)

*SQUEE* Good one!! I FORGOT about THAT one ... and mine is Sept 2007 - right before our first anniversary! I was supposed to get a puppy but I think we''ve decided to wait ''til we have a bigger house to add to our already sizeable animal family ... sooooooo.

My 30th is next June and I am thinking about an eternity ring for my right hand, but I haven't really made up my mind yet. Now I know many of you would be going for some huge 3 carat diamond upgrade for a big anniversary like this, but that's just not my style as much as I love to admire them on other people!

Dee Jay - ha! my 30th Anny is January 7th. Hubby says get what you want for God''s sake!
This ring is very close - kinda like the Kelege and Beaudry styles I''ve been drooling over for
years. I just want someone to show me the perfect EC !

Haha! I have a list, too! Our 30th is coming up, and the new rings were technically for that, but since I already have those, I think the diamond studs will now be what I actually get to open for Christmas/anniversary!

But Deco, I''ll have to tell you, I adore that little pink band, too! I lover jennifer garner''s rings and have a full eternity with a thin band like those on either side on my list. Who makes those? I need them to be tiny like that because my fingers can''t take 3 wide rings.

The other big thing on my list is the best natural blue sapphire I can find, set by Maytal or Leon.

Since I have been married since I was a mere child

, I don''t plan to wait for "big" anniversaries to complete my list! Every year is big after 30, IMO!!!!!!

well, my next BIG 10th anniversary is in 4 years, but dh was kind, and decided to let me get the lucky "7" year upgrade next year, so for the 10th we''ll be planning a huge Family reunion cruise (maybe renew vows?) and forego jewelry.

Maybe a nice pair of studs for my 40th B-day (that''s 6 years away though)....I''m not a huge jewelry wearer. I just want a couple nice, and basic pieces.

Our first anniversary is in June, so I''m holding out for four prong martini diamond studs from Whiteflash. At some point I most defintely want a pink diamond/rose gold band, and a matching canary diamond/yellow gold band. I''d also love a big old eternity anniversary band, along with that 10 year upgrade

Mine is not an anniversary gift but a major birthday gift (30 years in 3.5 years) because I am closer to that than a major anniversary (I am so evil). DH already knows that I want something really nice (DS2006 and I were drooling over a oval halo with hand engraving but I think that will be out of the budget). I think it is fun to plan and lust over things. Sometimes the search is just as great as getting the jewelry. I already made him promise twice to never surprise me with anything nice. I don''t have anything picked out yet but I have lots of things on my wish list. Deco I love your pink e-band, diamond e-band combo. Love that look. Maybe I can convince him to get me one if we have a girl (someday).

We just had our 15th anni in May, so not another big one for 5 years. For our 20th, I would like to get DH a rolex (perhaps one for me too!!)

BUT, Deco, like you, I do have the big 40 coming up FAST! In March I will turn 40 bells and the way my head has been growing gray hairs and my eyelids have been sagging, I may be wishing for a plastic surgery gift certificate!! lol - KIDDING.

Anyway, I am debating whether or not I want a great diamond gift or a great trip. Either way I will be happy.

At some point I want to get some diamond studs, perhaps .75 each. I think they will take me well into my middle agedom and beyond, with style and class.

I know 10 years is a long wait but I already made a list of what I wanted.. At first I wanted wanted an 2 ct asscher with side stones than I saw Catherine Zeta-Jones 10 ct marquise halo set in east-west setting and I said to myself I wanted a marquise.. Than I saw jennifer garner''s pink diamond band than I decided that I wanted a pink diamond band badly but after I got my sapphire band.. I changed my mind, now I want a 2.5 to 3 ct heart shape or oval ring with halo or sides diamond, but who know by the time its our anniversary I might what an emerald or another rb again.. It is really hard when you like all the diamonds shapes..

My question is, where does one get a HALF eternity pink diamond band. I have kid-like hands so I wouldn''t need very many pink diamonds to cover the top of my finger, plus I could size it. Any links, suggestions?

I sort of play it by ear. My middle son''s bar mitzvah is in 2008, so I think that would be my next major gift time...I get stuff for my birthday and our anniversary, but for a big gift I think that would be the next event. Then, my 20th, which is 2010...and it would be my 45th birthday...so who knows? I have a list of things, so let''s see if I still like the same things, though I must say, I think I will...

Well...we aren''t married yet, but when we get married it will be about five (unmarried) years together. I thought it was fitting to get a five stone band for my wedding band. It''s over the top for a wedding band, but I''m going to love it.


For future years...maybe an upgrade for my e-ring around five years married together. Maybe sooner...we''ll see. Someday I want a leon setting.

I'm disappointed in myself. I went to a jewelry store yesterday. I had a gift certificate that I hadn't used in almost a year. There was NOTHING that I wanted.

Our 25th is in 2 years. I think we will take a Mediteranean cruise.

I can't remember what gift/bling I got for my 40th. But, I do remember going on a helicopter ride and doing the local traffic report! I'll remember that memory for YEARS!

Edited to add: I am planning on building a RHR for 25th. So, I can't totally rule out any bling.

.... I may just have to get my ears pierced for diamond studs.

Weeellll, I''m not even married for another 7 months, but on Saturday when we dropped my wedding band off to be engraved, I surprised my fiance by asking the salesgirl if I could try on a super blingy eternity band "for our tenth anniversary or something"
9.gif


But....sadly....it TOTALLY overwhelmed my poor engagement ring!!!
39.gif
Although, I do think I could probably stack it with my wedding band nicely, just with no e-ring.
31.gif
But still, that made me sad since that''s been my long term eventual plan. Ohhh well.

I also saw THE MOST AMAZING EARRINGS EVER and said about 40 times to my fiance, yeah THOSE are the ones you should surprise me with some day.
9.gif
Hehe, but they were many many thousands of dollars so I''m not holding my breath on that one. But maybe I''ll shift my anniversary gift over to that at some point...we''ll seeee....planning to try on blingier eternity bands with my wedding band when I go pick it up to see if that pairing works before I make any "final" decisions!
