  79. A pair of diamond earrings with the first "I love you". I was shocked, because my husband (boyfriend at the time) was the kind of guy who would get engaged as a joke (as we did on our first date with each one of us wearing a diamond earring on our left ears), but would never say the love words, or never wanted to get married or have kids. He was 40 when he changed his mind and I'm glad I was the one to change it. I never took off my first Val day gift and still wear and love the pair of earrings. Why earrings? Because I believe spending few grand on a ring is a waste of money... we spent it later on our two honeymoons in Europe :)
