I love this!!
“This piece found me! I wasn't even actively looking for it.”

Some of my most treasured pieces have come to me in exactly this fashion :love:

It looks beautiful on you. A statement piece with so much personality. And it’s a little out of your usual style, I think? Which just makes it an even more dramatic and bold statement :cool2:

Hahaha. You're 100% right. It is not my usual style. But you know what...I think our taste evolves over time and I've gone from mostly neutrals & white diamonds to more colourful...and I am loving it!! Turquoise is suuuuch a beautiful happy uplifting colour.

And...not to be too mysterious, but another piece has just found me also...another HG...(to be continued...;))).

Thank you:).

Wow, so have seen all the gorgeous VCA pieces around here for years, and loved them, but never really looked up close at one in person. Thought maybe someday I would get one... Gray day here in the city and a really rough last 5 weeks at work so I met up with my bestie at bergdorf and we decided to go next door to VCA... I thought maybe I might get myself the carnelian sweet alhambra - the rose gold and translucent stone looks good on my pasty coloring... and then the SA brought out the holiday vintage alhambra with the blue ceramic... and we were both done... it really is lovely... I'm so excited I get to take home my first VCA... and we both got it, so we are calling it our bff necklace, LOL... and then he let us try on some of the really amazing pieces.... the ring was 29 ct OEC, prolly S-T range in color, 1.2 million, and the ruby necklace was apparently close to 7 million.... thanks for looking and happy sunday!

Finally decided on a VCA piece. I was waffling back and forth for months on the magic Alhambra in mother of pear vs onyx in yellow or white gold. I have very few pieces of jewelry in yellow gold so I decided this was an opportunity to rectify that issue. Alas my yellow gold magic Alhambra arrived this morning after a few shipping delays. I can't wait to wear it. I believe the matching bracelet or the Perlee beaded bangle might be next though have to admit the Perlee clover bracelet in yellow gold would be my ideal scenario.

@LLJsmom sure. Here are two shots, one with the chain doubled up and one with the chain on the inner loop. The end loop is a little too long for me. Sorry these are rather casual and quick shots. I will take more when I am a little dressier. All in all I love this piece.

This is so gorgeous! I think yg looks great with your hair color! I am extremely undecided about whether to get this piece in yg or wg! I know white metals look better on me, but that rich yg is tempting! You chose a fabulous first piece of VCA!!!

My husband surprised me on Christmas eve with my very first VCA piece, a magic alhambra 6 motif necklace. I'm usually very involved with jewelry purchases, so when I opened up the box, I was shocked. I think he did a great job! :) IMG-5018.jpg
He definitely did good!

What an amazing piece! Is that gray MOP, white MOP, and onyx?

My husband surprised me with the mini white gold Frivole earrings on Christmas Eve. This is my first piece from VCA. We already made plans to stop by the boutique while visiting Chicago this spring, where I will probably buy a five motif bracelet, but he knew that I also wanted these earrings one day.

I expect to wear them almost every day, rotated with my small bezel studs and pearl studs. I think they nicely complement my pendant (by Maytal Hannah).

I LOVE Frivole earrings and they could not be more perfect to wear with your pendant!!!

I am so excited about my Christmas and anniversary gifts! Our anniversary is the day after Christmas, so sometimes I get one thing for both occasions, but this time it was a matching set! This is the vintage Alhambra in wg pave.

DS, will you wear these as your everyday staple now? or will you alternate with your solitaires?
