My husband bought me diamond earrings and I made him return them. Yes – you read that correctly. For my birthday, I told my husband I wanted a Nook Color and what I got, instead, was something entirely different.
My anniversary – which is 7 days after my birthday- was coming up fast and I couldn’t think of anything I wanted so I told him to forget getting me a present this year.
I have three press trips coming up and Bill is going to join me on one to San Diego in a few weeks. I told him THAT would be my anniversary present since we have to pay for his ticket. He agreed and life went on.
My Husband Bought Me Diamond Earrings And I Made Him Return Them
However, when my anniversary rolled around the boy whipped out a pair of diamond earrings. A few years ago I mentioned to him that I wish I had studs to wear and he thought this would be the year to get them for me.
I took one look at them and told him to return them immediately. I am so not into jewelry. I don’t NEED real diamonds – not one of those girls. Would much rather get a pair of CZs and go on vacation!!
Bill was SHOCKED that I didn’t want them, but I can’t justify spending 4 figures on a piece of jewelry. I mean that is FREAKING INSANE!!! And it’s not even our 25th anniversary or something – it was just 9 years.
Am I crazy? Do you think it’s worth it to spend all that money on diamond studs when the fake stuff looks just as good as the real stuff? Would you rather a piece of jewelry or a vacation?
I also want to mention that I am allergic to earrings. I can’t wear them – I’ve tried every variation of gold and platinum. Puss is involved – it’s gross. (Sorry for being so visual – but I want you to know the full story). So even if I kept the earrings I would hardly ever wear them because of my allergy.
