Re: The New 2015 Bracelet Thread

I :love: :love: :love: bangles/ bracelets and have several: 1. Cartier Love pavé bracelet in WG + ceramic: I wanted this for several years and earlier this year tried to get the WG with 4 diamonds; that didn't quench my thirst.

Re: Show me your Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry!

A B35 in Bougainvillier is going to be amazing and so eye catching! I am sure you will rock it! When I ordered my bag in Paris, my SA advised me to pick Braise over Fuschia because red would be easier to carry than pink as I got older... You've been on a roll lately haven't you? The Lotus is a real...

I currently wear my 5.318ct solitaire on a daily basis. My social circle varies, ranging from nothing to 20ct D IF .

Re: K colored stone, honest opinions PLEASE

Okie, my 2 cents. First of, I agree the bowtie is not that bad. It's very difficult to get ovals without or with a tiny bowtie. Second, I agree, lose the halo and that money to go up in colour and perhaps even lose a little size. To play the contrarian however, would you be open to putting that in ...

Re: My 2016 bling bling

Okay, now I am liking the idea of the wg perlee clover with it very much! That's probably my #1 pick from VCA to wear with that ring. But of course, you can certainly wear the Cartier bracelet with it in the meantime! VCA jewelry has a certain feminine elegance in design (for lack of a better term)...
