I grabbed this yellow gold MOP BTF ring when it popped up on Fashionphile in my exact size for slightly less than retail. I just felt that it was meant to be, and I was in the process of purchasing the matching 1-motif long necklace (in the pics, I am wearing the rose gold ginza edition).

I feel that the ring is such a special piece, and a beautiful work of art that I would be lucky to have in my collection. However, I am having second thoughts on if the $6K investment is worth it. It is not something that I would wear everyday. I have small kids, work from home, and overall a fairly casual lifestyle, so it would likely only be worn occasionally - to events, the rare night out, or possibly on vacations when we go out to eat etc.

I have to decide by tomorrow if I am going to return it, and I just feel so torn! :-/

it is very beautiful, ff you think you can justify only wear occasionally, don't mind it sitting in your jewerlry box most of the time, then go for it. For me, I would want to wear it more often, also MOP as a ring is too dedicate for me to handle. question: is it conformable when wearing? I tried the onyx and GMOP same style ring, but didn't feel comfortable.
congratulations if you decide to keep it!

I actually decided to return it! Even though I love it so much, I ultimately decided that I didn't want to spend the money for something to just sit unworn most of the time. Especially when there are other pieces on my list that I know I will get more use out of. I was also concerned about caring for MOP, as a ring. I can handle it as a necklace, but definitely makes me a little nervous as a ring!

I think you made the right choice. The ring is definitely fun but so many other pieces are easier to wear. I sort of see this ring as a “lady of leisure” piece.
Once it’s on you are so limited. I don’t even think I’d feel comfortable driving with it.

I think you did the right thing here. I have little kids as well and also have a very casual lifestyle. MOP worn on your hand just seems too delicate to be worn much given your lifestyle.
