Well, I'm officially hooked! So, I went into a Boutique yesterday to try on LOVE bracelets. It was my first time in a Boutique, and it was a lovely experience. The SA was super nice and spent a lot of time with me, and helped me try on a lot of different pieces. She even unofficially authenticated the RG w/diamond JUC I recently bought on ebay.


I told her I bought it on ebay, and she asked how much I paid. I told her $8K. She then offered to give it a quick cleaning. She took it in the back, and when she came back out with it, she said something like "yep, you did good with this one".


I tried on the JUC rings, which I loved. But there was one on ebay I had my eye on, so I ended up buying that one yesterday evening (will post when it gets here!).


I tried on the Love bracelets and cuffs, but the sizing was a bit weird on me. My JUC is a 17 (and fits perfectly), so she had me try an 18 Love and it was way too big. Even the 17 Love seemed too big to me, as I could turn it around on my wrist. She said I should prob go with a 17, but I think I want to try on the 16 next time and see how that fits (she seemed to think it would be too small). I'm not entirely sure if I want to pull the trigger on a Love now, or wait until the thinner ones come out. But it was fun trying them on.


After all that, I ended up leaving with a Trinity necklace! I am so in love with it. I love how shiny the chain is. Even though the necklace itself is very delicate, the shiny chain kind of makes it pop. I tried on the matching bracelet, which I didn't end up getting, but I have been dreaming about it. So, I think I'm going to go back and get it next weekend!


My iphone takes horrible pictures, but here it is:

looks lovely on you!

Also interesting to hear about your ebay purchase. I'm guessing she had it authenticated when she took it to the back for the 'cleaning'. I didn't know they did that so it's good to know!

Congrats on your purchase!

If I read your post correctly, did you say a thinner love bracelet is coming out? Or you feel they should make a thinner love bracelet?!

GL with your start to Cartier collection!

TIA

Thank you! And yes, they are coming out with a thinner Love bracelet. There is a lot of discussion about it over on the Love Bracelet Sticky, I think. That is where I first learned about it. No pictures or prices yet, but people are saying they'll be out in the fall! Something to look forward to for sure :smile:

Yup the pendant looks so delicate but pretty on your neck. Ive ben wanting to make a pendant out of my trinity ring but worried that the chain might scratch the ring

Off topic - but thank you ladies for sharing your intel on the thinner love bracelet. It's everyday heroes like you that keep us in the loop and I can't wait for them to reveal the designs :,)

Thank you! It has definitely become my every day necklace! I haven't taken it off since I bought it! And now I am lusting after other pieces in the Trinity collection!
