It's here! Couriered overnight from London & I am SO pleased with it!

I wanted something else delicate but different to stack with my platinum Tiffany DBTY's, which I rarely remove. They are a .07 diamond & a .10 pink sapphire, special treasures given to me by each of the girls for Mother's Day when they were babies (well done Mr T!) After lengthy thought, I decided on 18ct yellow gold with just something special about it, but what, I had no idea. Then this popped up at me whilst late night browsing some high end websites & BAM! Perfect! I was twitchy due to the cost, as I'm not a frequent jewellery buyer & only get nice pieces for special occasions. But Mr T gave me the green light & here we are.

These are certified unheated Burmese Rubies, measuring 3mm, 4mm, 3mm for a total carat weight of .60 & they are beautiful. They are a solid, deep silky red with a teeny hint of pink in strong sunlight. The chain is adjustable from 6.5 to 7.5 inches, so lovely & versatile. It's very rich against my skin as I'm only really used to platinum or silver.

Oh my, this is gorgeous! The warm gold with the rubies is stunning, and looks great with your other bracelets. Is this a vintage piece? I'm curious about which high end website you found it on, if you do not mind sharing, as I enjoy scrolling through such websites, myself. :)

Thank you! Yes, it's vintage, from a jeweller who specialises in vintage & antique pieces - this was WAY down in the cheap seats! They are called Farringdons & are in London. They have some beautiful pieces.

Oooooh, thank you for the link! I spent the past half hour looking at their website and Instagram. Amazing pieces, with lots of vintage beauties to provide inspiration for anyone thinking about something custom.

This is SO lovely! My daughter's middle name is Ruby and I've been looking for a piece of ruby jewellery to wear, and this has inspired me to look for a delicate bracelet. Gorgeous!

Glad I could help & thanks for your kind words! I've actually removed the 2 Tiffs this morning (WHAAAT??!) to just wear it by itself today & let it be a star. And it looks glorious. The tighter chain loop means I can make it snug & it just doesn't flip! Slides up & down a bit, but no flipping.

Oooohhh - can we see a shot of it by itself with your watch? Lovely!

LOVE your new bracelet! Congratulations, @Alex T - great find and a perfect addition!
Thank you! The chances of finding something that intentionally tied in with the other two, without heading back to Tiffs & getting another Peretti that would be too matchy matchy for me, was slim. I am thrilled with it & it really pops!

I love that look, @Alex T! And I think the contrast in colors is terrific. It's nice to see something a bit different and creative. Would you wear all three with your watch? This is a great look for you!

Thank you, gorgeous! It definitely feels a bit creative & actually, I've just been down to my local Goldsmith to collect some silver he was polishing & he spotted it straight away, grabbing my hand with a slight gasp & saying, "Wow, this is new & fabulous on you! Tell me more!"

In answer to the other question, yes, I intend to wear all 3 stacked there on a permanent basis, along with my watch. I often mix & match gemstone beads with my Tiff's & wore silk threads with them for years until they snapped, but I think I've graduated & found my Grown Up groove since finding this. There is no "hmm... what's missing or not working on here...?" when I look at them - they feel 'right' together if that makes sense?

Bare with me & I'll go pop the other two back on (they've been having a good soak) & take a pic for you....
