Thanks so very much! Mixed emotions. I feel guilty on such a splurge but I do fall in love every time I look at it! I treat myself to jewelry for every milestone bday. Can’t wait for a man to buy it for me at this point!

Never feel guilty. It is your money, you earned it and if you get enjoyment from seeing the flash on your hand as a recognition of a life well lived then good. And this way you get exactly what your heart desires versus hoping someone else will pick the "right" stone or setting or having to negotiate when you don't love it.

You should do a self-given milestone birthday thread! I think lots of us have bought ourselves gifts that others in our lives (partners, parents) wouldn't.

You GO GIRL!
Its a stunning ring and well deserved by you for you.
It is money well spent, it’s an investment in ongoing joy and pleasure when you gaze down on that beauty.
No amount of looking and loving will wear it out.
Enjoy.
Start saving for your next milestone gift :dance:

Thank you for your supportive words! And yes, I work and do earn my own money. Love your idea of self-gifts thread!!

Hoping posting specs here is okay to do. I found this ring at a local, family jewelry store. Know just a little history- a woman who inherited the ring sold it because she likes really plain and simple jewelry and would never wear it. It was her grandmother’s. The jeweler estimates the ring is 19th century. It is 1.5 carats, K, VS2. The smaller side diamonds I didn’t ask about. Oops

It's a beautiful ring and looks lovely on you! I am all for a person buying their own special pieces. I think it's a fabulous gift to yourself for a big birthday. I often think that if we wait for someone else to buy us something special, whether big or small, we may be waiting a while!

Dear Lord woman you are on a roll! Two spectacular, gorgeous rings- I am smitten with both. If this is how you roll when you turn 50, look out world. The best is yet to come.
