The perfect pearl

In 2007, my husband and I received a Christmas card featuring a family picture. The lovely wife in the photograph was wearing the most fabulous pearl ring, evah!  I wanted one.  This is what I got. 

I thought I was perfectly happy with it until I came across this Simply Vera Vera Wang at kohls.com.

While the Vera Wang ring is close to perfect, I realized upon comparison that I prefer the look of my original ring – it almost feels more vintage than the new one.  The only thing I would say I dislike about my original ring?  It seems like the pearl should be set deeper into the setting.  Does that even make sense?

Would you prefer something classic and modern, or something with a vintage feel?

  1. I like the vintage look more, but I would want my pearl better inset too!

  2. I think I like the vintage better too!
