Re: Any Spaniards? Anyone familiar w Spain? Alicante vs Vale

I would suggest visiting the Fodor's Travel Forum for advice. We recently spent five weeks in France and Spain. Spain is beautiful but does have a very high rate of unemployment currently. I would probably take a minimalist approach to jewellery. That said, we experienced no issues. I think five da...

Re: Any Spaniards? Anyone familiar w Spain? Alicante vs Vale

I jut reread your posting. If you love architecture and were thinking of going north to Valencia, why not go all the way to Barcelona? Unless, of course, you have already seen it. I think that everyone who sees the architecture there loves it and considers it unique. If that were not an interest of...

Any Spaniards? Anyone familiar w Spain? Alicante vs Valencia

I'm going to Spain in a few weeks' time for a holiday and would like some suggestions please. This may be a stab in the dark, but would like to know if anyone would recommend Valencia or Alicante or both? I'll be in Marbella first, with friends (I've been before to Marbella and will be going back); ...

I adore the sweet pave bracelet, Phoenix! :love: But by itself or with another sweet! Your tennis bracelets will scratch it all up! ;( (I hope you know me well enough by now that I just tell you stuff like that! :lol: ) He he, DS! You're seriously going to admonish me! :blackeye:.

Re: On the "lighter" side of news---sapphire blue lobster!

I wonder if the blues are considered sexy and get lots of mates. I also wonder if, as kids in school, they are teased for being different. I think they should get this guy, or gal, into a breeding program and cyro the eggs/sperm. Haha, too funny, Kenny! :lol: I agree this guy should def be admired!...

Re: Help me plan for 2nd pair of everyday earrings

Thank you for posting all the pics! It's a very beautiful bracelet and I love it most stacked. Now I get what you mean about it feeling it needs to be a stacking bracelet not necessarily to wear on its own. I still love the design but am starting to wonder what my other options are. I've been think...

Oops!!! Sorry about that! Was so busy last week and on vacation now! I love that design for earrings and would love something like that myself! Yes, I have mostly seen AVCs and a Canera AC, as well. I would vastly prefer ideal cut antique cushions over any others since you clearly desire well cut s...

Re: Show me your Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry!

grateful4life and DS, the Snowflake is one of my favourite lines at VCA. However, the prices are outrageous!! :knockout: I'd totally buy them if I were royalty or Hollywood royalty. For your average consumer like me, the Frivole line for example is a lot more "affordable" (but still very p...

Sharing my latest acquisitions: Van Cleef Perlee Perles d'Or in WG in the first pic.
