Has anyone ever given you diamonds, or have you bought one yourself?

What is it set/made into?

I have a diamond engagement ring and diamond wedding ring which were both bought for me by my husband. I don't think I've bought diamonds for myself, but I also own a diamond necklace that was also a gift for me. I do think diamonds are classic and very beautiful but I tend to buy myself costume jewellery and beaded necklaces as I find they are more colourful and help to dress up an outfit.
I have 3 which I made into one -2 from engagements, and one lovely big one from an Aunt.

I inherited this one and her husband was a jeweller so it is a beautiful one.

I had all three made into one stunning ring several years ago.

Oh! Finy....my maternal Grandmother gave her Engagement ring of a couple of tiny Diamonds, to my boyfriend, three days before she died. That night, he proposed! Nana must've known something!

A few years' later, with that ring, & Diamonds from my late Mother, I had a longitudinal Diamond ring made, graduating tiny, medium & large, from front to back, & the two tiny Diamonds, on the shoulder. My design.
It looks so stunning, & unusual, of course.

I love wearing it, as it reminds me of two of the strong women in my family.
I miss them both terribly.

I have given a diamond ring, but sadly don't own one myself. Not yet, anyway!
Yes, two engagement rings of my own plus my Mother's and her mother's..

Yes! Lucky me!! Though I paid for almost all of them myself!!The first thing I bought when I began working was a pair of antique diamond earrings which cost me 4 weeks wages! Not much really, when I think how very little I earned in the late 70's as an apprentice!! The last piece I bought was a stunning Argyle Yellow diamond which my jeweller had acquired and made into a very beautiful ring.He let me pay it off over a very long,drawn-out Lay By!Bless him! But I do not war any jewellery at all now as I am far too swollen to be comfortable when it's been on for more than half an hour.
Oh! Jules, can you not get it resized? Shame not to be able to wear your beautiful jewellery!
by donjo
I have a diamond ring given by my husband and some diamond jewelleries that I bought them to reward myself for working so hard on jobs. However, that's was a long long time ago, and I seldom wear them now.
Oh! HappyMan.......could you not get enjoyment out of wearing them now? Sad that they are just languishing.
by donjo
Yes I had a huge engagement ring back in 1974.
This thing was amazing, and I sold it back then...when we broke up a year later.
The next set of diamonds I got was from my first husband, and there were 3 rings in all.
The last was a huge Sapphire from my second husband with small diamonds.
p.s...they are all gone now, I never wear any rings.
by jonaja
what is all gone now -the husbands, the diamonds, or all 3?
by Finy
Absolutely everything!
by jonaja
Yes. Only ever given as gifts. I have never bought myself diamonds
by AJ
No diamonds yet, although I can't wait to have my first one.
My engagement and wedding rings have diamonds in them. I also own a third ring with a diamond encrusted sapphire.

Ooooooh! Vee, my kinda 'sparklies'! Luv em! Cheers!
by donjo
I know, right?! :-D :-D :-D

Yes. Love wearing my beautiful rings. They continually get commented on, as they match AND I keep them CLEAN!
Cannot abide dirty jewellery, & there's much of it out there! Woman at work had platinum rings & hadn't cleaned them in 16 years, she told me! She never took them off....gardening, washing up! They were SO filthy, they were nearly black.....eeewwww!
Solitaire Diamond engagement ring.
5 Diamond Eternity Ring bought on Honeymoon, in Singapore, as I loved the Setting!
4 Diamond plus Middle Emerald Cut Diamond, as 10th Wedding anniversary. End of. Run outta money, as kids born within next five years' & ANY 'spare' money went to Private School Fees!

When I was single, went to Hong Kong for work, & bought a deep-blue Ceylonese Sapphire with 3 diamonds along each side, with a beautiful setting!

How weird it was the settings of two rings that attracted my 'eye' & not the precious stones!
I could have had a diamond for our engagement, when i husband to be sent me out to look for 1, but i couldn’t find 1 I liked enough to buy. It would have had to have had a very narrow band, as I have the widest gold wedding ring I’ve ever seen on anyones finger. Many years after our wedding, I bought a small diamond ring from a pawn shop, but I hardly ever wear it.
Hello miro_..........I've an 8mm wide solid gold, straight Wedding band. Is the one of which you speak, wider than that?
by donjo
I have lots of diamond jewellery including an original 7 diamond set engagement ring, sapphire and diamond rings and earrings, ruby and diamonds, emerald and diamonds and single diamond drops just a few of what I can recall.
Just recently had ring made, with middle Cushion Diamond, with a Pink Sapphire on either side.

I designed it, as I do majority of any jewellery I've got.
It's a 'fun' thing to do, but it costs, so only get to do it 'once in a blue moon'!
Ooo, would love to see it..
by Vee
Oh! Vee, thank you! It's really a 'pretty' ring, & goes beautifully with many outfits I wear, especially jeans!
I'll have to wait til a friend drops by, as I don't know how to get photo of it onto this here ITablet!
I'm just a Luddite! Lol!
by donjo
Yes - a couple of rings with diamonds, not really my favourite thing and I don't wear them. My engagement ring was Victorian with garnets, white sapphires and blue sapphires. I much prefer more unusual stones for my jewellery and have quite a few varied pieces of jewellery which are quite beautiful.
Why don't you ditch the diamonds, as you don't wear them, & get stones that you like, in exchange, to wear? Makes sense.
by donjo
Makes more sense to me to keep them as they are. Inherited pieces with lovely memories.

My wedding ring had diamonds but it was stolen. Hopefully I'll get another one.
