VCA and Cartier - Both in One Day!

I had a very fun day today visiting both VCA and Cartier. First time ever in Cartier. The SA was very nice, encouraging me to try on many, many pieces. Pieces that I would not have considered trying on myself-the Love bracelet and the Juste un Clou bracelets. I was very surprised that I liked the Juste un Clou on my wrist! My late father was a house builder, and the bracelet felt very natural to me! I did take a photo of me wearing it.
I did make a purchase - the classic Trinity ring. I've collected antique/vintage jewelry, and I like knowing the original Trinity dates back to 1924.
I told the SA I would wear it out of the store, but he insisted on gift wrapping it for me and added a box of chocolates and ring cleaner.

After Cartier, I went to VCA. They didn't have a lot in inventory, but I was able to see some pieces that I was interested in that were already purchased by others and awaiting their pickup. It was worth visiting, as I could finally see the pieces in person.

Oh, that sounds like so much fun! It's been way too long since I have been to those wonderful stores! I have the Trinity earrings and I agree that I love iconic pieces that have stood the test of time! I love the ring! I can see what the bracelet would have special meaning for you, too! Very pretty!

Thank you so much! The Trinity earrings are beautiful! I'm sure you enjoy wearing them.
I never would have thought I would like the bracelet- I'm such a vintage jewelry person - but I think as I'm getting older, my tastes are changing a bit.

The bracelet really did remind me of my dad ( and mom- who was always by his side helping him build the houses).
