I would love to add the mop bracelet, Onyxe earrings and pendant, carnelia earring and the new rosegold sweet Alhambra to my collections. But these wi...

More jewellery, of course! :cheeky: :sun: :D I've been consolidating my jewellery for the last 10 years or so. I used to have a lot, and I mean a lot, of smaller less valuable pieces. As I get older, my jewellery collection has also evolved... now my pieces are more mature, more elegant and more hig...

Re: My 2016 bling bling

That is gorgeous! Is it heavy? It's hilarious because the stones look huge on you, like one carat each. I can't believe they are only 20 pointers. Thank you, LLJsmom. Yes, they are only 20 pts each. But with the illusion setting, each stone looks more like 30pts. I think the pic is an optical illus...

Re: My 2016 bling bling

Re-furbished tennis bracelet, in an illusion setting similar to the necklace setting.

Tennis bracelet is 20pts (whereas necklace is abt 15 pts, I reckon).

Phoenix, I popped into VCA and saw your lotus ring. IT. IS. AMAZING. It is unbelievably beautifully made. Feels like butter on your fingers. I see why you love it. The SA said it is no longer being made. Do you want me to ask her to do a search for you? The VCA is in a Neiman Marcus, but she can se...

Shall I just go and try it on for YOU? :Up_to_something:

I don't have any more spare cash, having confirmed the paved Love. But I'm curious as to how this Lotus ring would look on my hands. It could be on my wish list for 2017 or more realistically 2018. :drool:

Yah Phoenix. That diamond pave love is super chic, especially with the black screws. It's especially awesome that you can take it off. If you think you will wear it, go for it.

Re: My 2016 bling bling

I think the love pales in comparison to your perlee. Can you return it and just live with the perlee for now and see if something else pops up that makes your heart sing MORE? How about a bunch of single motif VCA bracelets to stack, since you fancied the butterfly? Hmmm...I know the Perlee is incr...
