You should (if you want) ask the moderators to move this to the SMTB thread, this is a lovely bracelet btw.



I have been bitten by the VCA bracelet bug.

Congrats Missie1 on your beautiful new VCA bracelet!
I actually have the same one and LOVE it.
So special that the motifs are all different and unique.. makes me think of the suits on a deck of cards a bit.
Enjoy!!! :wavey:

Oh I hope it comes back soon.. it's a hard wait to get it back on your wrist when it's so new! 177CDD2D-3577-42D8-BCCC-F3D2E052179F.jpeg 507AA23E-33BF-4D27-BBD4-FE0EB4353EB8.jpeg
I usually wear it stacked with my white gold Alhambra bracelet. I feel that way I have all bases of gold covered and can wear a yellow gold watch or a white gold watch (on the other wrist) and it will match.

I love this in white gold. I was trying to figure out my next purchase and this is definitely it. It will be copying your look

Fun! Sounds like a plan! :appl:
Alone or stacked the Lucky bracelet is so delightfully whimsical... love it.
I bought them both last year... the white gold first and then the Lucky. 315DB27B-E3FF-4854-B1D0-CB0AB87251D1.jpeg
OT.. Having this bracelet also made me appreciate gemstones more. My parents were big gem and mineral collectors back in the 60s and 70s. On a shelf, just gathering dust, my mother had a big chunk of malachite and a big chunk of tiger's eye. Off to my house they went and are proudly displayed in my den. She was so happy that I wanted them! It was win/win all around.:D

I will have to wait holidays for next one as I bought 3.4 carat studs also last week. I love how the minerals match the bracelet. That is so cool and sentimental.

Oh my! Earrings too! Now you are truly bedecked and bedazzled.:appl:
Can you post pix of them?
And yes.. thanks about the malachite and tiger's eye. Having those rocks in my house does give me a warm and sentimental feeling about my childhood being dragged to gem and mineral shows with my parents. Crazy how much I hated it all then and now it's such a passion.

Two tone Rolex sounds like perfect match.
Funny you mention LOVES on the other wrist. Originally I stacked the white gold Alhambra with my white gold LOVE but after about a week I took the LOVE off because I felt like they were scratching each other. I'm curious how you feel about your new Lucky and your watch.. whether either are getting scratched up. You will have to give a full report.

I love the look of these two together but the damage to the love would freak me out. I totally see why you removed it

Yes.. I loved the look as well but I am super protective of the LOVE as you are too.
I actually have wrist sweatbands stashed all over my house and in my pocketbook to cover my bracelet when I am doing something that it might get scratched. :D

Thanks so much. I love the martini setting as it just allows the stones to sparkle and not be obstructed. I upgraded from 1.8 tcw to these. I wanted to go as big as possible since I had to spend at least double for upgrade. I felt that under 3 carats wasn’t providing visual difference. These are definitely a wow factor
