I bought this bracelet on Saturday while I was in Connecticut. I did not set out with the intention of buying a bracelet, especially because I just bought a pair of Gurhan 24K gold earrings from Bill Pearlman and have not even received them yet! I literally did not have the money for it and I do not put anything I cannot pay for that month onto a credit card.

However...I had to have a pair of Gurhan earrings repaired so I went into my local jeweler's, Grunberger's, in Stamford, Connecticut to see if I could get my friend Mona to fix them. What with one thing and another I somehow ended up walking out of the store with this bracelet and the owner, Jim's, blessing! I think that like some of the Pricescopers who hang around on Jewelry Pieces, Mona and Jim are enablers!

How many people walk into jewelry stores and walk out with jewelry without having to pay anything or sign anything? Of course I owe Jim some money, but he says he "trusts me" for it. So what could I do except take the bracelet? I mean, what would you do? ;-)


PS-Jim is a really good guy and had just listened to me talk about some of my family problems. He is just a good human being.

This isn't the best shot of the bracelet over a cuff, but the bracelet looks really good over the cuff of a white blouse. (This shirt is pink.) It looks even better if one wears two bracelets at once! In the store I had on one bracelet with pearls and one plain on the same wrist! It looked very delicate and Victorian, like lace. Only I cannot afford four bracelets (two for each wrist) since I cannot afford one :). I think that is one of the laws of finance. Maybe we should ask tradergirl about that.

I thank all of you for the compliments. Obviously I did not design this bracelet; I just had the luck both to happen upon it and to be the recipient of the generosity of the owner of the establishment that had purchased it at a trade show! In other words, no merit accrues to me for having this bracelet in my possession! I thank you all anyway, however, and I very much appreciate your good will!

Deb, that beautiful bracelet is so YOU. It absolutely belongs on your arm.

Do the pearls move on the gold, or are they stationary?

Thank you for the compliment, glitterata! The pearls are stationary.
