And I would definitely get a non-designer chain to go with it as you mentioned in the bulgari thread.


For Tiffany's - do you have any particular pieces in mind? For charms, I love the small Schlumberger eggs! I love a lot of Peretti's designs in gold: I like the Sevilla small pendant, the eternal circle thing (the one that looks like a stylized ouroboros), the apple, and I particularly like the lapis lazuli bean on a gold chain!


The small trinity ring and trinity necklace are nice...but a little underwhelming IMO. And don't you already have a few trinity rings already? I think it would be nice to get something new/different!


VCA sweet is cute, and I think it would look great layered with your other VCA necklace, esp. if you got the Carnelian, but I think I'd still prefer something from Tiffany's or the B.zero1!
I am with you on that. I am considering something in rose gold from Tiffany's or bulgari. :)

That is true. I am excited because I am going to walk madisonand 5th!

But are you buying something bcuz you want to buy something from NYC for the sake of buying it from NYC? I ask bcuz it sounds like you're not 100% in love w any of these pieces- what piece can you not live with out? I'd consider maybe holding back and saving more for something you truly want? In this case if you do want to buy something id get the sweet or the Bulgari or look around at Tiffany's.
I want it all lol! But I can only choose one. It seems like tiffany and bulgari are the tops here.

Very true! It is on the top of my list. I didn't even think of it that way :)

As for the pieces themselves... what about the VCA perlee pendant in RG? Love the sweets too!
Ideally, I would looove to go to France and visit cartier and vca! I wish I knew how much that perlee pendant is... It might be close in price to a perlee ring... How much are those?

Well everything is packed. I think cartier is off the list. I am going to inquire about that new vca rose gold perlee pendant. I am going to try on the bulgari rose gold zero pendant, and I am going to check out peretti's rose gold for sure!
Of course there are lots of other fun things I am going to do, but this will be my highlight for sure!
I am off for my trip tomorrow in the morning! :)

Thank you so much. Out of my budget for right now, but I definitely am going to try to get to vca to get a look.

I saw the sweet trinity necklace a few months ago. Didn't try it on but it really caught my eye. I was going to Cartier to see the love necklace (interlocking ring) to go with my bangle and ring but I really liked the sweet trinity!

Also went to bvlgari and I like the ring more than the pendant

I was also considering the interlocking ring necklace. My SO thinks that's what I should get.
I will put cartier back on my list!
I will try on the bulgari ring as well :)
