    No idea yet. My usual SA doesn't know, nor does the SA who assisted us today.

    I'd better be able to use it towards another purchase, which I am hoping is a pair of deep blue turquoise Perlee earrings, to match my pendant.

    If SA does give me any problem, it'd be a sh** fight! lol

    Hi LLJsmom!!
    Thanks for your sweet comment!
    It is such a "happy piece" as you say.
    I love the tigers eye butterfly the best.. it's the biggest and the stone changes colors and tone when you move it back and forth.
    I also like the fact that it's fixed on the chain and not hanging.
    How are you loving your new earrings?
    The size is PERFECT!!

    That bracelet has so much presence. Those huge motifs must be stunning. Hmmm. I never knew tiger eye would change color. How spectacular that must be to stare at that all day.
    Thank you about my earrings. I already forget they are on. And I don’t miss my studs at all. I have such a faithless heart. :lol-2:
    So what is next for you? And maybe you will create a separate thread for this beauty? I would love to see close ups of all the motifs. :kiss2:

    Oh I'm so glad you posted this last picture.. I just love the size and scale of them.
    They look fantastic on you!!!
    I would love to try them on in person when I go to VCA next week. I have to bring both of the bracelets in to be shortened a bit more.
    New earrings are at the bottom of my "to buy" list.. but who knows?:love:
    I just took pix of the Lucky motifs closeup.
    The carnelian is a bit translucent.. the rest not.
    I do love the bracelet as is however.. If it was up to me.. there would be a few things I would change about the bracelet.
    Offer it in white gold, make all the motifs fixed and not hanging, and add a motif or two so they are closer together. Otherwise.. perfect! lol
    Guess they aren't going to ask me!:lol:
    I am still very happy with my choice though.:D IMG_5926-1.jpg IMG_5927-1.jpg IMG_5928.jpg IMG_5929.jpg

    @Rubies-R-Me
    Those motifs melt my heart :kiss2:, especially the little red carnelian heart. It sounds so generic you know, a red heart. But once you see one IRL and up close, GAH!!! :love::lickout::love: And that Malachi leaf is sooo charming. I bet once your shorten it, you will love it even more. Will you need to shorten it more than your 5 motif since these motifs hang? I can’t wait till you have everything at your ideal length. Will you stack?

    @Rubies-R-Me The Lucky was my very first VCA love :kiss2:

    It's whimsical, it's casual, it's unexpectedly luxe - it's the epitome of everything non-pave Alhambra is intended to be :cool2::kiss2:

    I wonder if they would shorten the chain to the clover for you so it doesn't dangle quite as much?

    Hi LLJsmom!
    I agree about the motifs.. they are charming. I almost see them like the suits in a deck of cards?
    I do plan to stack.. if only because the short sleeve season is only 3 months and that's when I can really see the bracelets on my wrist and enjoy them. Since I got them both within the past 3 months I probably will stack them until the fall. How do you feel about stacking yours?

    Hi Yssie!
    Thank you so much for your sweet comment... and yes.. whimsical is just the right word for the motifs.
    You should write an advertising blurb for VCA.
    Also.. what an interesting idea to shorten the clover so it doesn't hang so low.
    I never thought of that. Very clever!:appl:

    Hi All!
    Such beautiful pieces!
    I only have one VCA, but it’s special as I got it when my best friend and I travelled together.

    Holy Moly.:love: Do you ever link your bracelets together to form a long chain?

    cheers--Sharon
