    I was wondering what that bracelet looked like on someone! Looks awesome!! Do you find it comfortable to wear? Do you layer that look with anything else? Thanks for sharing!

    My first self-bought bangle - a vintage blue enamel 14K gold diamond bangle from the recent Rubylane Red Tag sale, stacked with a tennis bracelet. Sorry for the terrible photos! I can't seem to correct the darkness or the yellow tinge!

    I like the entire package, especially because of its lovely engraving and cobalt blue enamel, so I think it's a keeper for me.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thank you @EllenS1! I was surprised at myself for picking a bangle to purchase, because I'm usually not fond of wearing anything on my wrist; I work with my hands a lot; all my other bangles and bracelets are actually gifts. Oh, but I fell hard for this!

    I'm currently enjoying it as a standalone, as a loose bangle stack, and also as a midarm cuff stack:

    :DIt is such a beautiful piece, you did well! My husband collects art mostly vintage prints and paintings and has bought a lot off ruby lane as their stuff is authenticated so I have browsed and seen their jewelry but never bought anything as some of it is very pricey...but they have some wonderful pieces and yours is just great!!

    I’ve been wearing it 24/7, except not getting it wet. I think this qualifies as everyday.

    Awww, thanks! That’s my Bev K floral band from Pearlman’s. I had them make it custom with a wee sizing bar so I can get it resized if needed. So in love with that band! :love:

    My tennis bracelet. Pretty much wear it every day. It was a gift from my hubby for our 30th wedding anniversary last May.

    Good Lord @MK514 that is a stunning bracelet. Are those 50 pointers?

    That's a nice tennis bracelet! Which Cartier watch are you wearing?

    It looks like the Panthere. My ex had exactly the same watch in 18ct yellow gold.

    It's not much compared to the bling here, but here is my carved 14K hinged bangle. I got it a month ago, the first piece of jewelry I bought myself, and my only non-costume bracelet. I wear it all the time and find it very practical.

    Any more bracelet / bangle combos out there with mixed metals? I’m trying to be brave with my right wrist & wear my very chunky SS Tiffany disc bracelet that contains medical info, (& that I hardly ever wear, which is naughty, due to the chinking & clattering noise that I struggle to ignore) with a heavy 18ct yellow gold bracelet I got for my 21st many moons ago, a gift from my parents. I’m sure they must look ok together, but I feel a bit like Dame Edna Everidge! :lol:

    Yellow gold, 1.87 ct if I recall, VS1-SI1, three prong, G to H color. I love her. I wear very delicate jewelry and I love the 3 prong setting, as a bit more of each diamond shows!

    Did some counting: the value of a remarcable solitaire would buy 24K for a suit of armour...

    It is a nice thought - as long as it not serious!

    Getting this form from another PSer.
    The preloved forum is a dangerous place! It may be too blingy for an everyday bracelet though..it’s 3.6ctw

    I don't know if I posted in this thread before, but here are the 2 bracelets I wear most days (usually just 1 on my right arm, not both on both arms), as shown in my avatar: the Cartier pave + ceramic Love bracelet and VCA Perlee Clover bracelet in RG. Note that the VCA Snowflake bracelet is not mine, at least not yet, haha.

    And my brand spanking new VCA Vintage Alhambra bracelet in pave WG, bought a little over a week ago. Still need to have it shortened.

    I actually was lucky enough to receive a rose gold Cartier diamond Love cuff for my birthday this year, so I wear them layered together!

    Be warned it’s a dangerous place! I wasn’t on the look out for a bracelet but I’ve always covered those Art Deco link style bracelets and this was just too good to pass up!

You get the best deals pre-loved..I still can’t believe I found my diamond bracelet for $600! I may have to sneak off somewhere in my house to go through some of the listings! :twisted2:

    So maybe not an everyday bracelet due to it being a bit too much for work. But could definitely be a every weekend bracelet. I don’t care if random people in the grocery store think I’m over blinged for the occasion!
