Ladies I need your advice, I was all set to purchase a collier de chien bracelet in black box with palladium hardware during my trip to Paris but according to the SA they are all out!?! I had always heard of the difficulty of purchasing Hermes items but frankly I thought this one was pretty basic. I was able to pick up some nice ties for my boyfriend and father and a tea cup for my mother, but I'm soooooo disapointed about the bracelet. Is this combo often available in the US? It seems that it might be less special then a purchase in Paris?!? I've actually looked around many other shops but I really wanted this bracelet.
