Hi Everyone,

As I am slowly getting inducted into the world of jewelry (diamonds), I am trying to figure out what pieces that are must haves for me. What about the PSers, since you all have owned and worn jewelry for many more years? And if you don't have all the pieces yet, what would they be?

So far this is what I have figured out for me.
1. E-ring - check
2. Wedding band - check
3. Classic Watch - check
4. Diamond studs - work in progress
5. Bracelet - don't have yet

Here is my list of 5 nice to haves:
1. Right hand ring - check
2. Pendant
3. Stacking band - check
4. Diamond hoops
5. Pearls - check

Sorry if there is already a thread like this. I looked and didn't find it. If anyone knows, can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks for sharing. Really looking forward to what others think.

Re: What is in your top 5 must have jewelry list? then next

I don't really have a must have list. Jewelry is a luxury. If I can afford it, that's lovely. But if I can't... oh well.

Items I am lucky enough to own already:
*Plain Shank Asscher Halo Engagement Ring
*Platinum Pave Wedding Band from Scott Kay
*Marguerite Pendant and Chain from BGD
*Diamond Clover Earrings from Pearlmans
*Odds and Ends Necklace put together from BGD
*Emerald and Diamond stacking band from Dover Jewelry

Items I'd love to own eventually:
*Bar set 7 stone band with MRB 20 point diamonds (from Wink)
*Diamond bezel tennis bracelet 6 ctw or more
*8mm OEC center stone for a Deco style RHR
*1 carat or larger pear bezel drop to complete Odds and Ends Necklace
*6-7mm diamond studs (AVR or similar preferred, but highly unlikely)

And my dream bling which is unlikely I will ever be able to own, but is lovely to dream about:
*8x10 Natural Unheated top color Sapphire oval or cushion three stone RHR with great cut
*2-3 carat oval split shank RHR

Re: What is in your top 5 must have jewelry list? then next

I started a similar thread last year: [URL='https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/whats-next-on-your-list-and-next-and-next-and-next-and.194295/']https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/whats-next-on-your-list-and-next-and-next-and-next-and.194295/..[/URL]. Great fun to see everyone's wish or inspiration lists.

My fulfilled list:
- one ring to rule them all: my 5.3 OEC set in the VC Sophia - done!!!
- several stackers made from old jewelry with colored stones - done!
- OEC studs - done!
- diamond pendant - done
- two modern and bold rings with diamonds
- tahiti pearls, baroque pearls, regular pearls - done!

Wish list (I am on a colored stone frenzy):
- blue sapphire ring - work in progress :naughty:
- ring with small Paraiba - work in progress :D
- solitaire with pinkish purplish stone - work in progress :lol:
- emerald ring - not going to happen soon: I am so banned.

Re: What is in your top 5 must have jewelry list? then next

I don't have a next 5 wish list (just one on my wish list) but here's what is a must have for me and what I want next.

Must have (not really must have but rather lucky enough to have):
ER and WB (good on these with no yearning for upgrade....yet haha)

Quality watch (I have 2 that are perfect and want no other watches)

Diamond studs and diamond hoops and diamond/ruby dangles plus variety of diamond earrings and gold earrings (very satiated on earring front for sure as I have many pairs that are good quality)

Diamond pendants and necklaces (again very satisfied on this front as well).

Diamond bracelet modern and antique (check)

Wish list:
I only have one thing on this but it's a biggie....Riviera/diamond choker necklace. Antique cuts would be my preference. Now I'm not sure how practical this is and if it would lay flat cause it would drive me batty if it kept flipping but this is something I *think* I want. I'm in no rush and in fact haven't been looking for one as of yet but if a beautiful diamond choker were to let's say fall into my lap that was affordable well I would for sure be interested.

Re: What is in your top 5 must have jewelry list? then next

Top 5:

1) e-ring and wedding band (have AVR in Vatche setting and Legacy band, but may reset e-ring diamond)

2) studs (have)

3) nice watch (have Cartier TF)

4) Cross pendants (have Tiffany and Beaudry in a couple of sizes and lengths of chain)

5) Right hand rings (have 3 Beaudry RHR's and two more similar platinum settings waiting for stones)

Extras: 4 ct diamond tennis bracelet (vg quality but pre-PS so not H&A which bugs me except I rarely wear it), SS and Tahitian pearl pendants, a few Roberto Coin pieces like hoops and bangles, Tiffany key long necklace, etc.

Wish list:

1) DBTY 36"necklace and bracelet (haven't decided if I want to invest in these yet)

2) larger studs or second pair of AVR studs in bezels (second pair would make more sense since I have two daughters, but I'd really like a pair 1 ct each!)

3) An AVC and/or an antique emerald cut around 2.5 cts. for RHR or alternate e-ring (this may take the longest)

4) Cartier Ballon Bleu (or possibly a second hand Rolex because I cannot stand to pay full retail for a watch!!!). I really love Cartier, though.


I really love jewelry and could collect endless pieces, but I am trying to force myself to be focused and just buy fewer great things rather than tons of misc things. I am finding I wear my basic 5 above 90% of the time, which means the other things are so rarely worn. I still may reset the AVR and I really want some AVR bezel studs.

Re: What is in your top 5 must have jewelry list? then next

DiamondSeeker, get the larger studs your heart wants! Don't worry about your girls please as they will inherit plenty of lovely jewels from you. Purchase what you love and want and will get the most enjoyment from wearing and don't be concerned with what you are leaving/giving your daughters. They would tell you the same I bet.

Re: What is in your top 5 must have jewelry list? then next

Must have:

2ct diamond ring
Everyday necklace
Pearl strand
Pearl earrings
Diamond studs

Very thankful that above are all checked :razz:

Nothing else that I must have. Would be very happy to own a 5ctw bangle or a 3+ct RB / AVR.

I am actually very happy with my little collection. Also quite enjoy the wait and research, not in a hurry to have a new piece. Though it is a lot of fun seeing others beautiful blings.

Sharon, as beautiful as that necklace is, I'm worried that it's not big enough for Phoenix. It's only 10 carats... ;-)

Thanks, Missy! Just now seeing this! I think the hardest decision is to whether to upgrade the ACA's or get a pair of AVR's to match my ring. My decisions always seem to be hard! :lol:

Re: What is in your top 5 must have jewelry list? then next

Quick thread jack... For those of you with a Riviera necklace on your wish list.
How often will you realistically wear it? I had the pleasure of trying these two on earlier this year. Like 65 cts !!!!
Now as beautiful as they are I could not think of more than 2 times I would wear them, my two sons weddings! Lol
Although the owner a friend offered them to me for our vow renewal.
A huge expense for very little use. Any other times I could think of that I would wear one, I'm pretty sure high quality fakes would suffice, plus I guess most in my social circle would assume the real one was fake!!!
We are certainly not in a financial position to drop 30-50k on a piece like that.
Just curious and of course a bit jealous!!

I know about these two--wanted to know what your 3rd choice would be.

My DH wants the new Cellini--but they won't be in our neck of the woods until Sept. We'll see about that! :bigsmile:

Maybe a Lange Datograph in RG, AP # 15300 in S/S or a Rolex S/S Ceramic Bezel Sub.

Re: What is in your top 5 must have jewelry list? then next

Wow, I love this thread, I started my collection with antiques I bought at auctions:

1. French Art Deco 18 K WG diamond watch
2. Art Deco diamond bracelet
3. Diamond ring bought from a customer, contemporary nothing great but I liked the setting
4. 2 diamond earrings, then I was already venturing into some color: one is a black&white in 18 K rose gold cluster type, the other a dangler with cognac (brown) and white diamonds in WG
5. Diamond bangle
6. Emerald and diamond ring; very simple but really like this ring for every day; probably the least expensive and I get tons of compliment on this
7. Ah my Fancy yellow with white diamonds necklace, my newest fave next to my watch, have yet to wear it out, Bday is coming up!

Next: Anything fancy colored diamond for the next who knows how many:))) after that I have been wanting to make big dangling earrings with colored stones too; something along the lines of morganite, imperial topaz, peach/pink sapphire, perhaps some fire opal in the combo. I also love paraiba, their color is electrifying.

Quick thread jack... For those of you with a Riviera necklace on your wish list.
How often will you realistically wear it? I had the pleasure of trying these two on earlier this year. Like 65 cts !!!!
Now as beautiful as they are I could not think of more than 2 times I would wear them, my two sons weddings! Lol
Although the owner a friend offered them to me for our vow renewal.
A huge expense for very little use. Any other times I could think of that I would wear one, I'm pretty sure high quality fakes would suffice, plus I guess most in my social circle would assume the real one was fake!!!
We are certainly not in a financial position to drop 30-50k on a piece like that.
Just curious and of course a bit jealous!!
A riviera is high on my wish list right now :bigsmile: Honestly I would wear it pretty often though. This is just my .02 cents but I think if you wear statement jewelry you either have a big personality or live in a place where that is the norm. For me I would wear a Riviera to starbucks, to go grocery shopping, take my kids to school etc. My husband thinks I'm crazy but i really would. As long as I felt I was in a safe location I would probably wear it almost daily.

Have you never heard of or read the book, "The Necklace"? If not it might interest you. It is not very well written but I love how it is a true account of 13 (?) women who all split and time share a 35ctw riviera necklace out in CA.

Instead of a diamond bale that can accept interchangeable pearl/CS drops, I have started to work with Jeff White to have a couple of stones cut (a Rubellite Tourmaline and a White Topaz) for an enhancer bale, so that the CS in the bale can be interchangeable too as well as the pearl/CS drops.

One Tahitian pearl drop sourced, looks like another suitable pearl (a white SSP) has been found, and I am eyeing a nice piece of Sea of Cortez mabe as a third drop.

Also on the card with Jeff, a big 17mm approx. white Danburite for a pendant! :love:

Instead of the diamonds for the tennis bracelet, I shall work with Jeff again to have white CS such as Topaz or Danburite in 8-9mm diameter cut instead, however, that'll have to wait until later next year.

Happy bunny!
