I might visit semiprecious one today. I actually hope I prefer the plain one more cause the semi is soooo much money! I'm trying to convince myself that plain YG will look better with my rose cuff than semi one. I think semi and rose might be too much color going on. What do you think?
I love the way the YG looks with another bangle, I dont think there will be too much colour going on, if you want classic, why dont you consider the white gold one? Does it look too similar or does the YG one look to similar to the rose gold one?
How long have you had white gold? I was worried about white gold losing color or becoming dull. On my skin tone, I think yellow gold might show up better. But with the rose cuff, I might be better off with the plain yellow gold than the yellow gold with stones. What do you think?
I have had mine since Oct 07, it is holding up well, it has not lost any colour. If I were you and you wanted to keep the costs down, I would go with the YG. The one with stones is stunning, but it is around £1450 more than the plain YG. I think you should try them both on and also the WG.
I'm going to the mall where Cartier is. However, I am definitely not buying it today! Sometimes I think the SAs get annoyed when I just look. But it is a big purchase and I have to be positive about my choice.
Totally, if it takes you 6 months to decide, it is your right to do so, the SA's cannot expect a sale, you should try it on, think on, try it on and think on. It is a big purchase so it should make you feel 100% comfortable.
I went! The SA was very nice and helpful. I definitely decided on YG bracelet all around. The semiprecious is beautiful but not recognizable to me as Cartier. It looked like it can be any bracelet because it doesn't have the familiar screws. Also, with it only being available for a year, many people may not realize what it is in years down the road. That is fine for some but for me I want it to be known that it is clearly Cartier. I also found out some interesting info. Prices most likely will go up in April as they have in the past. So it was highly suggested that I keep checking back to see if they have a coupon similar to what they did in January. Most likely it will happen in the next couple of weeks. There are more rose gold pieces coming out in May and Centennial pieces coming out in June. If you google Cartier Centennial, you can see the pic of the trinity ring with stars. So I am just waiting to see if a coupon or charity event will come soon. But it is 100% YG for me!
Just my opinion, but why spend so much money on a bracelet if the only thing you care about is OTHER people recognizing what brand it is? Seems like an awful lot of money for the soul purpose of impressing strangers. I saw the multi coloured precious stone bangle awhile back in New York and thought it was stunning imo, and personally I would rather spend my money on something I loved BECAUSE I loved it, rather than because I hoped other people would recognize the brand. My vote would be for the precious stone bangle.
I think its up to each person what they feel comfortable with (her life and all that...), on her other threads, she was quite keen on the semi stone and when faced with the choice, for her, YG looked better on her. I could go on...but cant be bothered really.
