Last month, someone asked whether she should keep the diamond studs from tiffany that her husband gave her, or ask to trade them in for a Birkin, I believe. The board overwhelmingly told her to keep her husband's gift. So here's another question...What if you had some serious money to drop, your very own money - would you get a croc Birkin or some very important (ok, relatively important) bling? For example, would you choose a hand-crafted diamond bracelet (not a plain tennis bracelet, but a real work of art) or perhaps dangly, special occasion earrings with F/G quality diamonds and well-matched AGTA-certified sapphires...or a brand new croc Birkin, directly from the boutique? This is the top-level stuff I've been thinking about lately.
