7 Pair of Precious Stone Earrings $28 Shipped!

About a month ago my two five year old daughters came to me and asked to have their ears pierced.  Well hubby and I had decided long ago that as long as they were willing and able to help take care of their ears themselves, we'd agree to getting them pierced whenever they started asking.  So we get to the place to have them done and one of my girls backed out at the last minute and we had to wait for two employees to get free because they figured we'd be leaving with one ear pierced on the other daughter unless they did them both at the same time.  She sat there so tall and proud during the whole thing and barely winced at the piercing, then we were all shocked when other people in the store burst into applause at her bravery.  It was so terribly sweet, and now I'm dying to get her this Set of 7-Pairs of Precious Stone and Sterling Silver Earrings that's on deal of the day for just $27.99 with free shipping, but I'm fully aware of the fit we'll have to endure from my other daughter if she doesn't get anything.  I guess I should just buy two sets (I can't picture them sharing either!) and tell her I'll hold onto them until she's ready to get her ears pierced.  What do you guys think?  The set includes genuine Aquamarine, Amethyst, Citrine, Garnet, Peridot and Topaz and they're a darn good deal at just $4 a pair!

Stay tuned for video of the ear piercing . . . I'll try and get it uploaded this evening ;)

    To be honest with u, here’s my opinion (since u asked what we thought):
    No, u should NOT get each of them a set. And one of them doesnt even have her ears pierced yet, but u want to get her a set b/c she’ll have a “fit”?? Too damn bad is what I say. I’m sure there’ll be another time in the future that she’ll receive something that her sister doesn’t. Things dont always have to be perfectly matched up and fair all of the time, that’s not how life works. Alternatively, get one set for both of them and (gasp!) make them share. It’s good for them. Builds character, etc.
    $30 (almost) is kind of a lot to spend on a gift for a child when it’s not for their bday or a holiday, so I think it’s more than fair to make them share it- it’s not like you’d be asking your daughter to split up her bday gift or anything. Plus, they can only wear ONE PAIR at a time, so sharing is not such a sacrifice here. But that’s just my 2 cents, for whatever it’s worth.

    why does my avatar look like a hillbilly spongebob, btw? just outta curiosity…lol

  6. I love it – thanks Veronica! You make several very valid points, and honestly she’d likely have a fit one way or the other (since her ears aren’t even pierced yet). The pierced daughter wants to go to Claire’s and pick out some new earrings for when the starter ones can come out, and they don’t have a single pair of fake earrings for under $5 – I figure that would be a very expensive trip IF we take all of the kids with us, so I will just order one set of these and they can share or suck it up :)

  7. that’s hilarious! and just the luck of the draw girlfriend :) if you go to http://en.gravatar.com/ you can setup an avatar of your choice and this one will change, it will also follow you all over the internet without you having to set anything else up again.
