    If that's your photo in your avatar, you don't need jewellery!

    Maybe ask on facebook? I am sure here will say camera and your FB friends will say bling! Then it's up to you to decide.

    Take the camera!

    Forget the Canon, hang out for a new Nikon D800 and use the change for a lesser bit of bling paid for by the savings in camera price and doubly rewarded by the image quality.

    Plus, your facebook friends will love both outcomes.

    Keep the 7D, they are a good camera, and buy a nice bit of GLASS in the form of a LENS.
    A lens will out live a camera body.

    As great as a Canon EOS 5D-series camera is (I've owned them since 2006), I'd have to agree with Darey.

    Cameras will come and go, but great glass will last a lifetime.

    In ten years time the camera will be worth a fraction of it's current value, but depending on the jewelry he gets, in ten years time it will be worth ...

    You know he's offering the 5d3 so he can have the 7d, right? :P

    Do what makes you happy, I reckon. And if you cant decide, get both

    It depends on how great you 5D mark lll envy is.
    Envy, dark green, then you can sell your 7D and get some fake jewellery.
    Envy, mild lime, then good glass would pass as jewellery to me.

    Jeez, I walked into a jewellery shop with my hubby and looked at some diamonds and they said um $4000 I think, I looked at my hubby and said I would prefer camera gear and walked out, but that's me. I agree that jewellery is probably worth more and something to pass on to your family.

    Camera..

    Sure, Jewellery can be passed on in your family, but will probably be sold...

    Go the camera, then create memories.. priceless. And say the one you need comes with the f/2.8 70-200 (a fast zoom looks like what is missing from your kit)

    But what a great dilemma to have!

    Out of interest, what have you offered him?

    Jewellery will be worth 1/4 of what you paid for it as soon as you walk out of the shop. The camera will be worth next to nothing in 10 years. If you want an investment - neither are good. So you are left with - what would you like to have?
