Tiffany bracelet options?

Hello PSers!

I have a question for you all.
I was gifted a nice Tiffany T Smile Diamond bracelet. I thought I'd love the look.
I did not like how it fit at all on my wrist. Perhaps the medium size will fit better than the small (what I got), but I didn't like how the T part kept sinking to the bottom of my wrist.

I'll be going to Tiffany's later on this week to make the exchange.

I would like to wear this bracelet every day and not really have to take it off.
I don't mind chunky etc.

My requirements:
1) something that can be worn every day and can go from day to evening. I do go to the gym often and I do wear wrist straps, so I'm not sure if that's a factor. I also need it to be potentially comfortable enough to wear to sleep.
The point for me is I am usually rushing everywhere all the time, so I don't want to think about putting on and taking off my jewelry. I've lost pieces that way :sad:

2) can be stacked/layered. I would like to get either Cartier or VCA in the future and I'd like for the bracelet to stack easily.

3) I'd like diamonds, but I could be persuaded otherwise.

4) the charms won't sink to the bottom of my wrist.

Now, should I splurge and go for something like the hardwear ball and lock bracelet? (Quite a bit of out of my price range but I'd be okay with that if it's a good 'forever' piece)

Or the return to Tiffany heart and key diamond double chain bracelet? (more in my immediate budget)

Or just the hardwear bracelet alone without any charms? (again, more in my immediate budget).

Or is there something else?

Thanks folks!

Personally, I like the hardware bracelet on its own, without charms. Or one of the other Tiffany T bracelets, if that is in your budget. There’s a wire thin one with diamonds that’s really nice.

You might get more responses in the Tiffany forum.

What about a simple stretch bead bracelet in YG? It would pair really nicely with the VCA vintage 5 motif Alhambra bracelet or the VCA Perlee bangle. Tiffany makes/ made a 10mm bead one that has chain inside and little gold pieces that covered it so it isn’t just cheap string internally. Quite sturdy and easy to wear. That one may be discontinued as I purchased it several years ago but I know they still carry other MM widths.

Lagos also makes this type of bracelet in varying widths in 18k YG. Here is an example of the 4mm one.

Neiman Marcus has a good selection of them in all different MM sizes. It is called the Lagos Caviar gold (stretch) bracelet.

Here are some of the other sizes:

They may come in sterling silver as well.

Then, of course, there is always the VCA pearls of gold Perlee bangle which a dear friend of mine has and loves to wear with her VCA Perlee signature bangle just like it is showcased on the VCA website.

I personally love the look of the simple bead bracelets with the VCA 5 motif vintage Alhambra bracelet because it compliments the beaded edging on the motifs:

Thanks very much! Yes, I'll checkout the other T Bracelets when I go to the store this week (and brave the craziness of the holiday rush!)
Thanks for your input!

Thanks for the suggestion! Would you say the ball bracelet is iconic from Tiffany? I do like something a bit more distinctive. However, I remember trying on the Tiffany bead collection and it just looks so classy! I'll see if they have the stretch bead bracelet and try it on.

Oh, believe you me, I'd jump all over a nice VCA bracelet. However, we had a gift certificate we had to use up at Tiffany's and I figured I should get a nice bracelet here (will get my VCA alhambra necklace eventually!) :biggrin: Thanks for the suggestions.

I do not know that I would call the beaded bracelets iconic Tiffany’s (IMHO the following lines are classic iconic Tiffany: RTT and DBTY). I do, however, consider them to be a timeless classic that will never look dated. You may be able to purchase it elsewhere but both the Tiffany’s 18kt YG version and sterling silver ones have a really nice weight to them. I had a friend purchase a SS one from Blue Nile and it was much lighter in weight.

I had to check out Tiffany’s T Smile bracelet because I honestly hadn’t heard of it. It is a cute design but I think it is better executed as a pendant. Again, JMHO.

Here is what I think you may have with diamonds (please correct me if I am wrong):

Ah, that's true! Perhaps the RTT is where I need to go. I do love the wrap element of the hardwear bracelet.
Perhaps I'll take some pics when I go to Tiffany's and see what the folks on here say :biggrin:

Yes, that second pic is the bracelet I received (except in a small size which is even smaller!). I thought I'd like the look on my wrist, but it sits very awkwardly on me.
It's too bad the tiffany beads with the RTT tag doesn't have diamonds. That would be perfect! :biggrin: :biggrin:

Thanks for the replies folks!!
