Re: So impractical, but SOOO adorable! LM's Le Petite Collec

Oh my goodness... ok they are cute but that is kind of crazy! Plus I'm really irritated by the fact that it should be "La petite" or "Le petit" not "Le petite" which is just incorrect french and sounds really stupid to anyone who knows french.

Lol, I know french and it didn't bother me that much.
I'm not sure if Leon is French or Russian.... (his blog mentioned something about blasting Russian music)
His last name/brand name is certainly French....

But Russians tend to like everything French.... oh the mystery haha :lol:

I'm speechless!
They are beautiful but what do you do with them? He mentions wearing them as a pendant but why???
I sincerely hope no one buys them for children! :errrr:

Okay, I just realized that they can't be worn on the finger unless you are a miniature person! This is nuts. These would have made gorgeous pendants in pendant settings!!! I would have LOVED the yellow pear halo as a pendant! Why did he do that???!!!

I have to say I really don't understand this. It sounds like Leon means for them to be worn on the finger. Did he just make really
small sizes to balance out the small stones for the photos or are they really only available that small.

It doesn't make any sense if they are not meant to be worn on a finger.

oh well.. I guess we will have to wait till his big unveiling.

They are kinda cute though. I like the pictures.

I will totally wear one on a necklace assuming the prices are as petite as the rings themselves. I think they're adorable.

999 it's not that bad. Now I want one. The problem is that you may fall in love with it and want the real size one for 20,000. :Up_to_something:

Not only is Leon very talented but he is an amazing business man!

I think there are many other jewelers who have the same skill as him but he wins them all because of this amazing marketing, advertising and general business sense.

These mini rings are an example. SO impractical but I am sure people will buy these!!

I can honestly say that I would never in a million years wear a ring as a pendant. Really...


**Edit**

Oh crap... the more and more I think about it and wish they were actual rings, the more and more they kinda sorta grow on me. Dangit Leon!! :saint:

I think these are great! Sooo cute! I could totally see wearing one (some??) as a necklace or bracelet charm.

Did you see the list of possible uses? Very creative.

Great idea, great marketing. I'd bet money he wrote the website copy himself. It reads very Leon. lol

I have to admit that they are really pretty, but I have so many jewelry projects on the brain, I can't imagine forking out $$ on something that would be gorgeous on my hand, but can only be worn as a pendant ;( .
