  2. WOW! WOW! Stunning pieces , Ladies!!I only have one piece sweet RG clover bracelet. I think I m hooked cause I m already planning my next purchase..
  3. 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! :biggrin:

    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!! :smile: 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! :smile:

    OH MY!!! Okay really trying not to play favourites here but your collection is so GIRLIE AND SPARKLY!!! LOVE LOVE THE DIAMOND NECKLACE!!!!!

    WOW Sbelle you are the VCA earring QUEEN! What a collection!!!

    Okay here is my little "family"!

    Lotus Earrings :love::love: (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! :amazed: Indecisive much? LOL! :p In the end I think I ended up with the right collection for me, though I still lust after a few pieces for sure!!


  4. All of you ladies have such beautiful collections. Here's my small but much loved collection: 1 vintage Alhambra 5-motif turquoise bracelet in WG and 1 vintage Alhambra 5-motif rose gold bracelet. Next addition will be something in carnelian.

  5. Wow..what beautiful pieces and what a fun thread!!!
    Jen, between you and Kim-Mac, and Sbelle you are killing me with your beautiful pave earrings!!!
    I am on a serious ban after the frivole pieces...seeing your gorgeous pieces makes it hard!!!
