Andrey generously offered me a $100 GC for my 10K posts, and I'm not sure what to get. Thoughts? I was browsing BN's site, and here's what I found. Which would you choose? I'll either do one or two pieces. Thank you Andrey!

Oh, I love option A! I think true-love knots are classic, elegant pieces.

EDIT: More importantly, congratulations on hitting 10K!

I like C. And B.

I don't usually go for the expected classic. If everyone else has something, I'm rarely Jonesing for the same thing. Item C is eye-catching and unusual. Item B is classic with a twist (yes, that was a pun!).

Thanks so much, Circe, SweetPeach, Chloe, Gypsy, Danny, and Holly!

Gypsy, I like the knot earrings you linked also. I'll give those some thought.

If you have other ideas, I'd love to hear them! I'm trying to keep the cost low though. A few other things are a priority for us at the moment.

Maybe I should have sad "choose" instead of "get" in the title. I'm afraid it comes off as rude and that's NOT at all how I intended it to sound.

I'm biased toward D because they match my wedding band. :bigsmile: Congrats on your 10K, Zoe!

I'm also a sucker for classic studs, and so A would be my second choice.

I would pick E. Very classic everyday earrings

I'm a hoops girl, but I also love the knot earrings Gypsy posted. You have a great selection to work with here, so I'll just say - have fun choosing!

Congrats on reaching 10,000 - WOOHOO!

If these earrings were for me, I would choose the love knots since I am a stud person. But since 4 of the 5 choices you posted are hoops, I am thinking you are a hoop person! I tend to prefer hoops smaller than 1". These are adorable: http://www.bluenile.com/sterling-silver-petite-bamboo-hoop-earrings_20485
Thanks LittleRiver! It's funny you said I must be a hoop person because I've had the same studs in for over 2 weeks. I need to switch it up a bit more. I like the hoops you linked but when I first looked at them I thought of bones, for some reason. I'm afraid that's made them less than tempting, although I do like 'em. :bigsmile:

Thanks vc, EB, and VR!

I'll have to check them out again on BN's site and then decide. Thanks again Andrey!

B, C or E.
A would get in the way at work because I'm on and off the phone constantly. I don't like D because the hinges are too prominent. Congratulations whatever you pick!

I like all of them! But if I had to choose 1 for myself, I would choose B. Congratulations on your 10K!

Zoe -

If you get the hoops, you might find D easier to put in and take out than E. I've had both styles and found the snap in bar was a lot easier on my fingers and ear than trying to poke the wire back in the hole. Others may feel differently but that was my experience. Everyday earrings need to be easy to get on and off.

I'd get option A if it were me. :cheeky:

Thank you, Texaskj, Tigian, and Rainwood, Andi, and Whatami...!

Rainwood -- thanks so much for your advice! I hadn't thought of that.

I'm hoping to let Andrey know today what I'm choosing, if possible.

Congrats at the 10K!!

As for the earrings, were it me, I would choose either B or E. I like B because the would work for everyday wear, but have a bit of of a flair. E are so sleek and classy. Again, perfect for daily wear. And I think they'd be terribly comfortable to sleep in. I tend to find a favorite pair and wear them 24/7.
