OMG these collections are so beautiful girls!! I love seeing how different people collect different items from one big collection - so interesting! They are all beautiful, both big families and small!!
I think we should start a Cartier and Tiffany's family album too... although there is a Tiffany's thread already I think! I can actually say I have a Cartier family now!
Mine was the WG/MOP bracelet, for about $1,500 and I think I went back a few times until I got up the nerve to buy it Then I got the rest of my MOP set next.
HAHA! I saw the WG/TURQ bracelet on some teenager on the beach outside the Ritz Carlton in Naples and had to look it up (which is how I found THIS site!) to find out who made it... there was a boutique in Naples as it happened and I had TOTAL sticker shock at the $1500 too! I almost laughed it off until I caught the addiction ... my very first piece of fine jewellery I ever bought myself was the YG/MOP bracelet!
thanks everyone for the sweet comments. i ordered this through pottery barn online a few years ago. it was the medium size. it's faux leather but i really loved the compartments and color and didn't want to spend a fortune on a smythson one.
I have the same one in cream! But am seriously thinking of buying a pink Smythson one just because!! :) Once everything is insured and I feel like I can leave it out a bit more I'd love to have one great jewelry box with all my goodies in it! :)
I do have a couple more that I don't have a picture of.....I'll take a pic tomorrow and post then.
WOW Sbelle you are the VCA earring QUEEN! What a collection!!!
Okay here is my little "family"!
Lotus Earrings (my fav family member I think!)
20 motif WG/MOP
5 motif WG/TURQ
5 motif YG/MOP
And my sweets!
I've bought and returned or sold a lot of items along the way!!! LOL... I've had very forgiving Sales Associates, what can I say! Looking back at my pics I can't believe I've exchanged a 10 motif, a 20 motif, a socrates, 2 magic pendants, one vintage pedant and a pair of sweet earrings! Indecisive much? LOL! In the end I think I ended up with the right collection for me, though I still lust after a few pieces for sure!!
All of you ladies have such beautiful collections. Here's my small but much loved collection: 1 vintage Alhambra 5-motif turquoise bracelet in WG and 1 vintage Alhambra 5-motif rose gold bracelet. Next addition will be something in carnelian.
Wow..what beautiful pieces and what a fun thread!!!
Jen, between you and Kim-Mac, and Sbelle you are killing me with your beautiful pave earrings!!!
I am on a serious ban after the frivole pieces...seeing your gorgeous pieces makes it hard!!!
OMG texasgirliegirl - from following this thread I think you must have a very "extended family" that we would love to meet all at once! POST girl!! :)
Yes, I have around 14 boxes stacked up right now....
I really do love the pieces that I have acquired, though!
Will try to take some photos tomorrow....still trying to get little ones to bed and this mommy is tired.
