Look at What I Bought My Daughter for Her 16th Birthday -- UPDATE: She Opened Them
My daughter turns 16 on Tuesday. Where, oh where, have the years gone!

Here's what I bought her (bet you thought it was a car, eh?):

Her first diamonds...1/3 carat, with good color and clarity (see my blog for details of that interesting shopping experience).






Every girl needs a decent jewelry box to keep her stuff in. I got this one at Things Remembered and had a plate engraved for the top. Only problem is that the plate came off in the box and scratched the top. I'll have to get another one in the morning.

That is just lovely! I got my first diamond last year, for my 21st birthday. It really was just a wonderful gift that I hold dear to my heart. Your daughter will love this gift- great job momma!

That is so sweet. I'm sure she will love it!

I received my first diamond on my 16th too. It was my great grandmothers engagement ring, and my birthstone. (Family tradition to receive a genuine birthstone ring on your 16th)

I absolutely love it and still wear it today, which is pretty big for me since I am not crazy about Jewelery. I only have 3 things I never take off... The diamond ring, and my Engagement ring and Wedding Band.

How special! I got my first diamonds for my 16th birthday also, my great aunt's diamond ring and some earrings from my parents. They are so special to me, and I know your daughter will treasure her's too
