Re: Show me your Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry!

I think the bottom motifs in Mariah Carey's earrings may be super magic-sized too.

RE the holiday pendant, I'd love to see Sèvres; but it's porcelain, and I doubt they'll do it again.

This is not a pendant, but it's TDF!! :love: :love: :love:

Re: New to me AVC band with Cartier

Hmm..I've been where you are. I'd not do the pendant. If you're not excited about it, then don't do it. In the LR, going this route would cost you more money, trust me on this. Would you be excited about having a 3-stone RHR with ACA's? Doesn't sound to me like you would be. If you can swallow the l...

Re: New to me AVC band with Cartier

I was likely in ongoing projects at that time. Too many opportunities, too little cash! lol! I read back to your ACA dilemma. I am not sure if they'd let you trade it in for a pair of smaller stones or not, but I think that would be a nice idea. I still like ACAs for studs because they show up so w...

Re: New to me AVC band with Cartier

Beautiful!! :love: :love: :love: Love your skinny Cartier Trinity too. Re the ACA, I'd just sit on it for a while. If you still feel the same in a few months, then perhaps upgrade it to a larger one? Unless you think you'd wear a pendant or a 3-stone ring. I'd make sure whichever you choose, that yo...
