The trouble is, I'm not entirely sure what I want.
I've narrowed it down to a few options, all from Vashi.Vashi are an online diamond specialist, who ensure that every gem they sell is conflict free. After reading a lot more about the diamond trade recently, that's quite important to me.
001: I love sapphires. They're not my birthstone but are always my stone of choice. I'll admit, I do have two sapphire rings already, but they're both yellow gold and I like that this white gold band is a little different, as is the fact that the sapphires are set around the diamond itself. This is one of the Vashi zodiac collection; they've picked out engagement rings with the perfect characteristics for each of the star-signs, which I think is pretty cute.
002: I do already have a sapphire ring with a rather similar surround to these studs, so perhaps a pair of earrings would be a better option. I don't wear earrings as often as I'd like to, but if I had a dainty pair like these I would make sure I wore them more often.
003: I've always wanted to add some pearls to my jewellery box. There's something about their link to the sea which makes them feel that little bit more personal to me - I'm always more relaxed by the seaside. A set of pearl studs would go with just about any outfit, as well. So tempted.
004: I think the swirled shape of the ring around this diamond is just so elegant. It seems a lot more modern than the regular settings of the others I've picked, but I wonder if I'd prefer something with a little more colour.
005: I love the look of this ring because it's just so classic. When I was younger I always preferred to wear either silver or white gold, but these days I'm more drawn to yellow gold, so was naturally drawn to this.
I'm still no closer to a decision. Also, I'm aware that some of these rings are listed as engagement, but I don't see any reason why they're not suitable for any other purpose. I'm not a believer in marriage, as anyone who knows me will already know, but that doesn't mean I don't plan to build up my jewellery collection with pretty shiny gems.
What would you choose?
