thank you, @missy and @Sparkle_ruckle The sea bracelet is special because my dear aunt (who I speak about on the Caring for Aging Parents thread) brought it back for me from a trip to the Caribbean. She used to have the matching bracelet. At some point, I'd love to find earrings that fit in with the theme. I do have two links I had removed, wish I had thought to have the jeweler remove two of the same animal! Come summer, I will likely wear that bracelet all the time. I should look into having the extra links turned into pendants.

Sparkle-ruckle, for what it's worth, I think the yellow gold looks wonderful on you. I may be a little biased on that, though. 9 years ago, right when I discovered PS, I was on a white metal trend, and that's when I reset my erring to while gold. Now, I'm finding myself drawn to all things yellow again! Melissa, or Wink's Elf, recently recommended a local jeweler for me. I may look into resetting my erring back into yellow gold.

Thank you for the vote of confidence on my yellow gold jewellery. I should give them more wear indeed, especially the ones with a simpler and cleaner design. It's true that white metals seem more trendy-looking. What a shame though - yellow gold should have a comeback!

Thank you for sharing your story too! I always love how jewellery can be so incredibly symbolic, personal and celebratory of relationships. It sounds most befitting too that your sea bracelet is from the Caribbean itself. You mentioned that you want some earrings and you have also removed some links from the original bracelet. Could you have the same animal removed and turn those into stud or dangle earrings? My bias is for dangle ones though, because I love dangle earrings! (I think different animals are fine too. It can be a chic mismatched look.) It'll be a beautiful set!

How smart are you??? I don't know why I didn't think to take the bracelet back to the jeweler and have him swap out links to make a matching pair of earrings. I like the idea of dangles, too. Okay! Now I have another project on my always growing list :geek2:

Revised. This is how I wear my bracelets now. I had the 5 carat one with the rounds and baguettes and last summer I added the 1 carat bangle from Whiteflash!

Love the uber luxe and classic bracelet with baguettes and round brilliants!

I alternate between my Return to Tiffany SS toggle bracelet and (more often) this one:

It’s 4 ctw set in 14k yellow gold. My DH picked it out all by himself! Which was very brave of him because he knows how picky I am about jewelry! LOL! But he did great. I absolutely love it! And I need to get a better pic! :mrgreen2:

Hi LLJsmom! :wavey:
I'm late to the party but I do love your bracelet! I'm looking for a design for all of my poor leftover stones... I'm thinking that your bracelet is gorgeous and might be the one. Do you have any pics of it laid out? Pretty please and thank you!!

20180212_102555.jpg Hi! I found this website recently while I was on a search for engagement ring ideas. I just joined yesterday and have been binging on all the goodies! I personally don't have a lot to share, but I'm definitely enjoying living vicariously through you ladies. Here's my little contribution.

Thanks @suzanne2. I bought it as a whole piece so I only have pics of it this way. Hope these help. The clasp is bent because I bend it to open and close as is expected with 24k gold.

Thanks so much. I don't know why, but I expected the backs to be open...yet after thinking about it there isn't any reason for that. More light is usually the reason but if the bracelet is snug, there isn't any light anyway.
I knew it had to be snug so the stones would stay on top but for the life of me I couldn't picture the clasp. Now it makes sense.
The medallion looks like the Arabic number 6...
You said you smile when you look at it. Is that because of the richness of the 24ct gold or is that from another memory? I don't mean to pry but I've really been obsessed with this bracelet for the last few days. I like the clean lines, the thick bezels, the different shaped stones and the rich gold. In other words, I WANT YOUR BRACELET!!!
Would you mind terribly if I used it for inspiration? :Up_to_something:

@suzanne2 I am very flattered you like this bracelet so much. I can hardly take any credit because it certainly wasn’t my design so please take whatever works for you. The designer is a company called Just Gold. They work primarily with 24k, and started in Hong Kong 20-30 years ago. They have a modern take on 24k gold jewelry which just looked painfully traditional and outdated to me when I was growing up. You should check out their website to get more ideas.

I smile because the colors are cheerful and it’s a simple and straightforward design that requires little effort to appreciate. The little tag shows the letter G in lower case. Yes I agree that if done will, rich yellow gold can look modern and clean. Hope you will share your piece when you are done. I’ll peruse the website and see if there are other pieces that may inspire.
