Yeah, no earrings...yet.

I was looking back through all the pages of this posting, and early on I saw a photo of your sweet butterfly turquoise bracelet. It looks so nice on you. I was wondering if you still wear it, and whether you think it is too "girlish" for an older person?

Thank you. I love it. Nope. Don't think it's girlish at all. Pretty, bright, happy, cheerful.

You should really (if you want, lol) check out the pics on the other forum. These pieces are just amazingly beautiful. I love my new bracelet so much more than I expected. The surface is very shiny, mirror-like and I just love the design, very art deco-ish.

Hi @Phoenix! Can you tell me what other forum you are talking about? I am very interested in the guilloche bracelet, yours is so beautiful... thanks!

Tried on both the Magic pave, VA pave and HP pendant at the VCA store yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised the HP looked best on me. 343B5175-240D-4C8E-B211-D4CE3CD8CE7A.jpeg

Congratulations! That is a beautiful pendant! Hope you enjoy wearing it.

Thank you LLJsmom, it was love at first sight! It was so bright and shiny, pictures don’t do it justice.

I also tried the two butterfly ring with pink sapphires and diamonds. It was feminine and super gorgeous. The ring or Perlee diamond clover bracelet is next on my list.

Guess what just arrived. Thanks to @sunny05 for giving me the heads up on the Oct 1st release of the magic alhambra pendant in chalcedony in wg. I tried to special order this exact combo last year but was told 'impossible'. So I jumped on the phone with NY store and squeezed in a pre order at the old price (eye roll that there was a pre-release price that then increased on Sept 24th before it even became available). Anyway thought I would share. I love it!

Super bright and shiny. Washing mine right now in fact. Think I will wear it for a while. =)2

I love those butterflies. I think the pendant is stunning.

I actually don't have that guilloche bracelet anymore. But it is def beautiful.

The other forum, you can google it using words like "Van Cleef", "2018-50th anniversary of the Alhambra", "Hermes", "Kelly" or "Birkin". I am not sure I am allowed to mention the name of the forum. See how that goes. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll see what else I can do.

I wear it almost every day, walking my dog or going grocery shopping. It’s quite discreet and not super blingy. I love that it’s limited and WG.

Thanks! I love that it’s WG too. I may pop by to have a look if I’m in the area since I remember @Phoenix mentioning it’s ok to dress casually and I’m usually in fitflops and shorts or jeans. Hopefully don’t meet any snobbish SAs :lol-2:

I don't know about other countries, but in the U.S., casual is usual. I'm in CA, land of dotcom millionaires in backpacks and flipflops. It would not be fiscally wise for an SA to judge a potential client by attire.

You'll be fine. I am usually very casually dressed.

Oh my goodness, I am dense. Thank you! I am also on that forum too, ha ha. You would think I would realize... lol.

If you like white gold, the 2020 holiday necklace might be of interest to you.

To the VCA experts: Based on past experience, are "limited holiday" pieces really only available for a short time? Do they eventually become part of the regular inventory?

Love this necklace.

Love this necklace.

Yes, depending on the piece. Sometimes the more popular pieces go quickly. This year’s seems very well received and will not last long. Two years ago, the gold MOP seemed to hang around for a long while. Ask your SA to keep an eye out for you.

Thank you - I may have to decide quickly in order to purchase this limited necklace. I unfortunately don't have a VCA store that I can visit - so all my ordering is done via the phone.

I did just receive a pair of the Frivole White Gold mini earrings today-They had to contact several locations to see if anyone had them in stock. The boutique in Las Vegas had them and shipped them to me. The SA there included a gift in the box - an Orchidee Vanille scented candle. I thought that was very nice.

Yes, I do love the LV store, the one at Crystals mall. My old SA was there. Go for it. If you don't love it, return it and get a credit. I can almost guarantee you will find something else you love from VCA. It's not exactly a challenge. ;)2

Call the VCA online number - They are getting in a small amount of the HP.
I was fortunate to have been able to order it - will be arriving today in the mail .

Really? I am shocked. I didn't realise that SG had ltd supply too.

I am wondering if this pendant is only available on request basis (?).

Maybe it is available for regulars? Dunno man. Was a bit sian when was told no stock since I was all ready to buy.

Edit: Sian is singlish. Varying meanings depending on usage/context but in this case more like disappointment.
