I am trying to decide on a 50th birthday gift and the 3 options are approximatley the same price. Which would you choose, and why?
I am really leaning toward a 5 stone band to represent the 50th birthday. Suggestions welcome.

I think the 5-stone in pink would be beautiful and unique. Looking forward to pics of whatever you decide on!

Okay I admit up front I am a pink person but I still voted for the 5 stone pink band. They would all be pretty.

I love them all but my choice would be: 1) the pink five stone. Pinks are rare and you won't see a lot of bands like that out in the
world or among people you know.

2) the ruby and diamond band. I love the band and rubies

3) lastly the three stone with white diamonds.

Now you could mix the pinks and the whites....

My hesitation is that 5 6-pointers is not going to cover the top of your finger. What kind of setting would it have?

DS...good point. I haven't really decided on a setting. What would you suggest for maximum finger coverage?

I think you'd need about 9-11 six-pointers. I have a band of 7 ten-pointers and that looks good so I think you need more than 7 if you go with 6 pointers. I think you could have the diamonds bead-set in the band and have milgrain and engraving and maybe get by with fewer stones. I just don't think a prong-set style will look good with 5 6-pointers.

I love all your choices. My 50th is also coming up and I've been trying to decide what to get. If I had your choices
I would go with the pink diamonds. Have you considered doing an alternating pink/white diamond ring? I think
that would show off the pink really nicely.

My second choice would be the ruby/diamond ring.

I agree with Rosetta and DS. The pink diamonds are incredible and my favorite my pick, just not sure about the fingers coverage you will get from these. I have a size 5 finger and 6pt eternity band and need 9 x 6pt diamonds to cover my finger.

I hope you can find a way to make these pinkies work for you though because they are beautiful!

Are the pinks too small to set etoile-style in rose gold? With just 5, you'd probably need those 'inside' beads to keep them oriented on the top side...

Or a thin pink band with the pinks separated? Or maybe putting them in a marquise-shaped setting to give them more width?

I gotta go with the majority the pink diamonds :love: even though i love the ruby and diamond eternity as well! I think the pink diamonds in the bar setting would look pretty good, my 5 stone is bar set and it kinda of "spreads" the diamonds out for a little more coverage.

I really wanted the pink, but as some of you had posted and the vendor agreed, I would need 10 pinks to give me the finger coverage, and at the moment, that is OUT of budget. So I have decided to make a different purchase. I will be getting 3 stones to make a 3 stone ring. .46 F/VS .45 I/VS .45 F/VS....(transitional and OEC ) I am soooooo excited...
