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!

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!

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! :)

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!!

Yes, I have around 14 boxes stacked up right now....
Slightly embarrassing.
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.
