Ok so I''m having a rough day and nothing cheers me up more than eye candy and since I''ll already thoroughly browsed everything new in the Show Me the Ring forum, I thought I''d come to you ladies for some amusement. I thought we could play what would you buy with $1500. Must be jewelry but all stones are fair game. But it''s like the price is right, you CANNOT go over. Ok I''m playing too and I really just picked that number out of thin air so I''m gonna do some research and post my answer when I find it. I know the enormous budgets are fun but I think its a good challenge to try to find something amazing for a good deal. Thanks!

Ok I looked at some beautiful old european cut rings but decided on this beautiful band totaling $1395. Now if only I had $1400 lying around....

Probably this ring because Emerald is my birth stone. I''ve never had any real Emerald jewelry.
It''s $1,310 from Blue Nile.

Nice thread! I'd get this .5 carat half-bezel pendant (in white gold) from Whiteflash. ETA: It's $1,415.

Cute Topic!

I thought this was pretty:
Diamond right hand ring set with Whiteflash ACA diamond melee (1.10ctw; Color: F/G, Clarity: VS).
Triple Cluster diamond ring... cuz my right hand deserves some bling too, right? :)

$1,489.00 in white gold

Oooh, fun game!

If I wanted to be boring, I''d say that would pay for (or go towards?) my engagement ring setting. But, I don''t feel like being boring, so first I''d get one of these:

DBTY necklace for $975!

With the remaining money, I''d buy these diamond earrings in white gold for $450. And then, with the leftover $75, maybe get myself a good jewelry cleaner.

Thanks guys I''m loving this. All of the choices are so pretty.

jaylex - that RHR is a TON of bling for $1500! Very nice. Also I love the way those earrings are set.

AdiS- LOVE that necklace!

trillionaire- that''s so sweet that you didn''t even spend it on yourself. I saw that style ring for the first time like a week ago and am so intrigued as to how they make it look like that. It''s so unique.

I''m not entirely sure on price, but I''d get a white gold JM ring with a fairly inexpensive pale purple stone. I think this entire set up might be closer to $2,000, but I can''t really research it to find out.

If that goes over, I''d get OEC diamond stud earrings in the largest size I could find.
