    The other thread on anklet and toe-ring inspired me to start this thread. What jewelry have you given to your girlfriend/wife?

    Or if you're a female, what jewelry have you received from your boyfriend/husband?

    I'll post mine later.

    Other than engagement/wedding rings, I have given my wife bracelets and necklaces. She doesn't wear earings, so I don't get sets.

    Edit: I forgot, My anniversary and daughters birthday are on the same day, so a couple of years ago I bought them matching mother/daughter rings with my daughters birthstone in them both. It was a big hit.

    Men give women jewelry (thread title).
    Women receive jewelry from men (opening post).
    I guess women don't get jewelry from female significant others.
    And I guess men don't get jewelry from their wives, girlfriends, or male significant others.
    Gee, that's odd . . . I see men with rings, earrings, neck chains, bracelets, watches, all the time. I guess they have to buy their jewelry themselves.
    Oh - I get it. This is a thread for GUYS who give jewelry and women who get jewelry from GUYS. Excuse me . . .

    Um, would handcuffs count as jewelry? [​IMG]
    Seriously, I've never been with someone long enough to buy them jewelry with any significance. I guess they don't like my sense of humor...

    i bought my girlfriend a gucci watch. actually the same watch i bought her two years ago that she lost. if this one gets lost then it's tough shite for her. she also has found a way to lose the first ring i bought her (synthetic emerald / diamond). currently, i have no plans of ever buying her a diamond as she has shown herself to be totally incapable of wearing / keeping safe the jewelry i buy her.

    ALTERNATE:

    here's a better question...what has your girlfriend / wife recently bought for you?

    answer: a few polo style shirts for christmas

    Wow Kevin, I was about to post the same thing. One of the better items I've goten my girlfriend a Gucci watch. The problem is she bangs it around on everthing when she wers it, so it doesn't see the light of day much. She's not much of a jewelry girl though.

    Well, this one girl I was really hung up on received a diamond pendant for her birthday with some matching earrings later at Christmas. Then the next Christmas she got a really sweet tennis bracelet. A few months later, we broke up.
    My last girlfriend didn't get squat. A few months later, we broke up.
    I may still be single, but at least I saved some cash this time around [​IMG]

    I just ordered an engagement ring for my girlfriend THIS MORNING! I'm closing on a new house on the 30th and am planning to give it to her that night. Wish me luck - although hopefully I won't need it!

    Congratulations, Steve!
    Jewelry I've bought my wife (all in yellow gold):
    an engagement ring (a 1.34 ct pear-shape in bypass mounting with approx. 0.50 ct round side stones in channel settings)
    a snake chain w. a diamond pendant
    a pearl ring
    an anklet [​IMG] (I'm surprised more men didn't get that)
    a pair of London blue topaz earrings (she has since lost one of them, so I'm thinking about converting the lone earring into a ring)
    a floating pearl necklace
    a bracelet
    a two-tone watch (if that counts)
    Damn, Gucci watches are very expensive. I knew a woman who wanted a $700 Gucci watch. Too bad she doesn't have a boyfriend (not that I'd spend $700 on a single item for a girlfriend anyway).
