Well the search was totally worth it! The 05 Turquoise City is just TDF! The seller was wonderful, and I got the bag the day after the auction ended. This baby is in absolutely "Brand New" condition, and worth every penny! I had to wait until the CA coastal fog cooperated for the pictures, but her she is, along with a new family photo, and of course the braid and gemstones I made for her. This braid is another one with geniune stones...London and Swiss Blue Topaz, and Blue Zircon set in 14kt white gold. Anyone who has been contemplating buying a 05 Turquoise bag, I would highly recommend going for it the next time one comes up!
