Recently some PSers have acquired some new iconic jewelry pieces from VCA, so I thought it was time that PS hosted a thread for collectors of these beautiful pieces!

I do not yet have any of my own to share, but when I was recently in Las Vegas, Brightice and I spent some time in VCA and tried on some lovely pieces! Here are a few for your viewing pleasure!

Oooh! I already love this thread. Thanks for sharing DS. I do not own any VCA pieces so I will admire the pieces that will fill this thread.

I am a big fan of VCA, however, they are way out of my budget.

I would dearly love to have one of their magnificent invisible-set flower broaches for a start!

Looking forward to ogling at the pics in this thread.

DK :))

OMG...those VCA pieces are so lovely--I'm officially addicted! :love: BTW, I think those Alhambra onyx pieces would look great on you, DS! ;))

I'm adding my first piece, a newly acquired WG Vintage Alhambra diamond pendant, to this thread:

That is an absolutely fabulous first piece, m-2-b!!! :love: I don't think I told you this, but I did try on the matching bracelet to your pendant, but I didn't get a picture of that, for some reason! I do love the onyx, too, but the solid gold with diamonds will likely last a lot longer!

DK...I hear ya! The prices are painful!!!! ;(

All these VCA pieces are so lovely... They make me sigh.

m-2-b, are you wearing you vintage Alhambra single motif necklace? Do you wear it casually? I love the white gold. I recently saw the sweet bracelet. It was very cute, but I would have preferred one motif only rather than the 6 or 8 it had.

This isn't new but I wear it 24/7 through dishwashing and showers and yucky workouts. And it hasn't broken!! I really love it. I would buy another to stack with it.



I don't always wear my tennis bracelet but I never take off my butterfly.

Oh, wow, I forgot I even started this thread! I love all the pieces posted! I just got my first piece of VCA this month in Houston! The 6 motif Sweet Alhambra bracelet in pink gold. I have debated about exchanging it for the yg vintage bracelet, but my original intent was to just wear this with my platinum DBTY bracelet and not really to collect other pieces of the pink gold.

I did decide to exchange the pink gold sweet bracelet for the 5 stone Vintage Alhambra solid gold bracelet! I had a great sales person in the Houston VCA boutique, so ask for Osvaldo if you ever go there or need to order!
It's gorgeous, DS! :love: I love the size difference on you and the gold color really pops against your skin color! :appl:

Great decision, DS!! I love the YG on you and the vintage size is far catchier than the sweet version!

Hi girls! First time visitor to this thread. Last weekend my dh and I visited Van Cleef and Arpel on 5th avenue in NYC and OMG their watches are TDF. :love: :love: :love: Works of art. True masterpieces and seeing them up close and personal and trying them on was the highlight of the day. We didn't take any personal photos but I just had to pop in here and say they really are GORGEOUS. I love the planetarium watch but that fairy watch is so much more wearable and easier to tell the time with too. We saw the fairy watch in both blue and red and even being the blue lover that I am that red watch was even more stunning IMO.

First photo is of the Poetic Complications Collection, Lady Arpels Pont des Amoureux Watch. So romantic. All of these watches are so romantic. Next 2 are the Arpels Féerie Watch from the same collection. And the last photos are of the Planetarium watch. Each planet is represented by a precious or semiprecious stone. Each planet moves on its own disc at its true speed, illustrating the movement of planets as they orbit the Sun. Cost 245K without diamonds and 333K with diamonds. :love:
