just because…

I have never been a sentimental sort when it comes to jewellery. I have always indulged in fast and cheap ‘costume’ jewellery but never have treated myself, or been treated to, special jewellery as such. It never really appealed to me, even when I saw my friends receiving special pieces for their 18th or 21st. However, following an impromptu trip to Selfridges with Rob, we ended up perusing the glitzy jewellery counters and he bought me this little sparkler from Thomas Sabo. The reason? Just because.
 I have never been a fan of the Thomas Sabo charm bracelets but have always loved their chunky rings and knew this was a firm favourite the moment I spied it. Luckily they had my size (52 FYI) and it fitted perfectly. After Rob bought it, I had one of those childish moments where I wanted to wear it straight away!

(Nail varnish – Illamasqua’s Purity)

I really love this ring and it will be a piece I wear and treasure every day.
Thank you Rob.

    This is absolutely gorgeous! And your boyfriend is absolutely adorable for buying you this πŸ™‚ what a sweetheart! I wish Thomas Sabo did gold jewellery though, I'm much more of a gold girl than a silver girl.

    Very nice! πŸ™‚

    I have similar feelings to sentimental jewellery. I only love my name necklace and that's it. I am terrified of wearing wedding ring or engagement ring some day. I already told my boyfriend that I'll get bored of them pretty quickly. Harsh but true… πŸ˜‰ X


  24. 22nd July 2011 / 3:37 pm

    Ahhh Milly it's beautiful! Lucky girly and clever Rob πŸ˜‰ xx

    Lucky girl, I wish my boyfriend would splash out Β£200 on a ring for me, 'just beacause'! <3

    It is indeed a gorgeous sparkling ring. I love it. I can understand why you wanted to put it on right away. I am also wearing my diamond engagement ring for two years now. It have not taken it out since it has been given to me..not even once!
