Another hopefully encouraging update for everyone! :smile: I prepaid in full for the Magic WG Diamond Single Motif Earrings on 5/22 and got a text today from my SA saying it had just arrived in the boutique. The wait was so short and I couldn't believe my ears. I really think VCA inventory is starting to move, but it's def going to clients who have prepaid. I wonder if it's connected to the fact that France got out of lockdown like maybe 2 weeks ago?

Also, I don't know if anyone knows the answer to this question, but I'll throw it out there. Do certain boutique locations get priority I wonder? Like if 10 people wanted a bracelet and all 10 had prepaid, but only 5 bracelets were coming in, how would VCA allocate the bracelets?

You are on a roll! Congratulations!
I totally agree with you that pre-paid in full clients get first priorit over clients who just put down a deposit. A partial deposit is not a true commit, and the SAs/boutiques know that.

Can't wait to see your pieces! So happy for you!

My SA mentioned this week that this pair was available, so perhaps this model has availability. Hoping the same for others!

Yikes.... Checked with my SA on 3 pieces that I have placed deposits on 1 May.

1. Sweet MOP earrings - estimate of 2 months more
2. Signature WG perlee bracelet - longer than the MOP earrings
3. Diamond Estelle wedding band - 6-8 months more
Update! My SA has just sent me a message to say that my bracelet has arrived! Was a shock to her and definitely a pleasant surprise for me to get it tomorrowwwwww yayyyyy

Hi Everyone! Another update. I pre-ordered with full payment the vintage alhambra 5 motif bracelet in chalcedony on 5/31 and received a call from my SA that it arrived today. Inventory is def moving. I really don't think we'll have to wait 6 months or whatever for our items to arrive! :smile:

Hi there! Is anyone waiting for the WG (or any gold really) vintage alhambra diamond earrings? I ordered them before the price increase and have not heard any news on an ETA and was wondering if any of you had heard anything. Thanks so much in advance! :smile:
