I realized I forgot to post a pic of the Frivole BtF ring I bought a few months ago. I was debating between the pave and the regular gold, and the regular gold won by a landslide for me. I only wished hubby was there with me because I could have proven that I don’t always pick the more expensive item :cheeky:

The frivole btf looks amazing on you. But your arm candy is a WHOLE other story. omg it is jaw dropping. That tennis bracelet (ACA right?). @kama_s I think you actually need a third limb. And your clutch is HILARIOUS! It’s perfect with ALL that fabulous bling. I’m gonna make it my new screen saver.:lol:

Just added these gorgeous perlee WG hoops to my collection. Love them. They are angled to make the hoops face forward rather than every other hoop I have tried in the past two years, which just shows as a big hole next to my head.

What a perfect staple!:clap:
How are the hoops angled so the face forwards? I'd love to wear hoops but my ears lie flat on my head so I just look like simbad the sailor sad :((

Thanks for the extra pictures @LLJsmom this really is ingenious! I maybe able to get hoops after all!
I would really encourage you to try them on. My SA suggested them a couple of years ago but I was so hesitant because I thought it would be too heavy. And because I thought they would look ugly going into my piercings which are a little big. But my concerns were for naught. I love them and I have put away my studs for the time being. I may even need to put a yellow gold pair on my wish list.

Bahahaha I also think the clutch is sooo freaking over the top, it really is pretty hilarious!

Love your new pieces!! The Perlee earrings are perfect! They almost look like pave because they reflect light so beautifully!

You guys. I couldn’t make up my mind between these two pieces. Soooooooo I ended up getting both! I picked rose gold this time around because all of my other VCA pieces are in yg (except for the signature Perlee bracelet which is also in rg).

Thank you! I love both of these pieces so much! I was worried the pave earrings would be heavy and uncomfortable, but I’ve been wearing them all day and have pretty much forgotten they are on. The clover bracelet has been on my list for sooooo long. I should have just gotten it the first time around when I got the signature one. Ah well.

OMG :geek2:

Y’know how there’s always That Girl - she’s brilliant, she’s kind and generous, she’s beautiful and she has exquisite taste... we’ve got a handful of That Girls here on PS :kiss2:

Gorgeous new pieces!!! I see why you couldn’t decide :kiss2: I have to say I LOVE the rose gold on your skin :cool2: I think we have similar colouring, and VCA’s pink gold is so subtle - just enough to bring out peaches and creams :kiss2:

We need some updates on your collection ::)

Gahhh thank you!!! You make me blush! I entirely agree with you that’s VCA makes the most gorgeous rose gold and it looks absolutely amazing on our skin tone! Hahaha I do need to take update pics of my collection, at least for insurance purposes!

I also realized that I think I’ve gotten everything on my VCA wishlist that I made here on PS a few years ago. I guess time to make a new updated list??? :Up_to_something:

It sure is :appl::love:

I loved how you couldn’t decide... so you just got both!! Feel free to not be able to decide between the goodies on your new list next time to go to VCA - you’d be doing all of us a much-appreciated service, this is one of my absolute favourite threads... :halo:

Haha, honestly I felt quite gluttonous getting both. I usually like to get one piece at a time so I can enjoy the newness before adding another piece. C reminded me that I hardly ever have time to go to the mall (I have been meaning to visit VCA since the beginning of the year!), so it is more efficient to just get both now at one time. I love when he wins me over with logic and efficiency! :bigsmile:

My other half doesn't have this perspective :mrgreen2:
May I borrow Craig for a couple of days?
Perhaps I could set up a recurring monthly rental?
I'll pay flight and return shipping...

:appl:Oh yay!! Finally able to add a VCA piece of my own to this thread. We were just on vacation in London and I bought this WG Alhambra bracelet there. I have been hankering for it for a while now. First order of business was to enjoy the bubbly we were offered when we sat down.:D
The bracelet is too large.. IMG_5028.jpg IMG_5039.jpg fullsizeoutput_55f4.jpeg so in the next week or so I will bring it to the VCA store near me to have it made smaller. Takes about 2 weeks for them to do the repair. They actually move each motif closer to each other which is nice. less chain.. more MOP. I was hesitant about wearing it with my LOVE bracelet because of scratching but I think I am going to do it anyway. I also found out that you are not supposed to get the MOP wet so I will have to either buy a waterproof wrist band to cover it or just take it on and off each day. I have terry cloth wrist bands all over my house to wear to keep the LOVE from scratching so hopefully I will be able to find one made of waterproof material too.
Thanks for sharing the smiles! I will post a new pic when it comes back from being shortened.:wavey:

Congratulations @Rubies-R-Me !! A white MOP VA bracelet is gorgeous and perfect with everything, and stacks beautifully with your Love. I’m so jealous! I never got champagne. What a great reason to celebrate. Can’t wait till you get it back and wear it at the perfect length.

I love your MOP bracelet so much, @Rubies-R-Me! I have tried that one on and it is definitely on my wish list! I personally don't stack my good bracelets because I want to keep them from being scratched. I know others don't mind. But I really don't consider the MOP Alhambra to be a 24/7 piece. I think it should be removed for showering and sleeping. I'd be concerned the moisture from the shower could still affect the MOP. I've seen photos of MOP that shrank in the setting and it would be costly to fix. I'd really only consider the solid gold ones okay to wear all the time.

I've had champagne in VCA before, and it's a miracle I walked out of there with just one thing!:lol:
