For a budget of 4000 approx :

Option 1 :
- Tiffany solitaire pendant .12
- Cartier Leger blue sapphire pendant
- Tiffany vintage oval key in platinum with diamonds

Option 2 :
- Tiffany solitaire pendant .17
- Cartier Leger blue sapphire pendant
- Tiffany vintage oval key in platinum with diamonds

Option 3 :
- Tiffany solitaire pendant .26
- Tiffany vintage oval key in platinum with diamonds

Option 4 :
Something else completely :smile:


They do have to be suitable for a first job in a conservative work environment (I'm not so sure about the key regarding this factor?).
My earrings are Tiffany .16 platinum DBTY. Somewhere down the road I would like to get bigger studs and keep these as second-hole studs, but for now I'm happy with them :smile:.
Any opinions welcome :smile:

I would get a bigger solitaire pendant rather than get three necklaces. The solitaire pendant will never go out of fashion. But I am pretty boring and keep wearing the same jewellery! What does the cartier necklace look like? Tried to google but still not sure I know which one you mean.

Thanks for your answer :smile:. I have thought about a larger solitaire, but I also like the idea of three pendants :smile:, and also I don't want the solitaire to look ostentatious I guess (25yo, first job...)
The cartier necklace is the Saphirs Legers de Cartier in white gold and with a blue sapphire, $1120 :

Thanks for the link - that necklace is gorgeous! If it was me I would get the cartier necklace and the diamond solitaire. I'm tempted by the the Cartier one myself!!!!

Employees I have seen did have nice jewelry and dress well, but I also felt like stone size was like a status thing, i.e. the junior ones have smaller discreet accessories (or maybe this is all in my head idk^^)

Thanks Winterfell, I also love the necklace and wear lots of black and blue so it would get a lot of wear.
Which size solitaire would you recommend ?

Maybe but I don't think it matters if you have a slightly bigger stone in your necklace! Get what you love and feel happy wearing.

Think our posts crossed there - I was replying to the one before! I don't think .26 will look OTT at all. Will you get opportunity to try on in a store and see how you like the different sizes?

Thanks, yes I will in december, but only one afternoon so I'm aiming to plan my options out in advance as much as possible

I'd get the 0.12 solitaire and sapphire.
Thanks, I saw your reply in the Tiffany thread also, I'm glad the .12 looks good!


Neither of you mentioned the key, do you dislike it ? I've wanted the solitaire and sapphire for a while, the key is a new desire. I like how it's small and delicate and sparkly, and also like the symbolism.

Yes that's a good idea - if you already have a shortlist. Hopefully, you'll just know which you love the best when you try them. December isn't really that far away now.

I like the key but prefer the other two. You need to choose what you love though - if you like the look of the smaller diamond solitaire you could get all three. If the key is small and delicate I am sure it will also be suitable to wear to work.

I've wanted a small solitaire and a sapphire pendant for a long time so I'm pretty sure about those, just hesitating for the size of the solitaire.

I know it's a little vain, but I do want the solitaire to be from Tiffany :love:, I like the design with the tiny bail, and it's a symbolic gift so a little blue box makes it that much more special :blush:.

The key is the mini model, .75" :

I haven't found any modeling pictures, but from the description it sounds perfect for me :smile:. I love the keys but wasn't comfortable with the idea of the larger diamond ones, I hadn't noticed this mini size.

The mini size looks just right for the key. I'm sure there's bound to be a TPF member who has one - maybe try and do a search.

It's not vain to prefer a Tiffany solitaire we all have our vices!
