What’s on your for-sure, longterm jewelry wishlist?

I'd want to add the following to my jewellery collection in the long-term:

1) Cartier Panthere ring in YG
2) 6/7 carat tennis bracelet
3) Pear-shaped diamond ring (1 carat and above) set on platinum, with either side stones or a half-eternity band
4) Diamond eternity ring set on platinum
5) Either a 10-motif RG Alhambra vintage necklace or a 16-motif RG Alhambra sweet long necklace

I can cross one off my list now!

My mum gifted me one of her old necklaces, and I turned it into a platinum diamond ring!

Updating my list now...

1) Cartier Panthere ring in YG
2) 6/7 carat tennis bracelet
3) Pear-shaped diamond ring (1 carat and above) set on platinum, with either side stones or a half-eternity band
4) Diamond eternity ring set on platinum
5) VCA Alhambra 10-motif vintage necklace in either hammered rose gold, or in onyx
6) VCA Alhambra 5-motif vintage bracelet in onyx
7) VCA Alhambra Ginza Edition pendant in rose gold
8) Cartier Panthere stainless steel watch in mini

I got myself the Cartier Panthere ring in RG instead as a Chrimbo present at the end of 2023.

I also got the 5-motif Alhambra bracelet in onyx during my Tokyo trip in April 2024.

As expected though, I've added more things to the list... LOL. I feel like there's always 5 items on the list somehow!

Chrimbo = Christmas LOL
 
My wishlist but likely after med school!
  1. Tennis bracelet – either princess or round cut
  2. Cartier RG love bracelet — either plain or with 4 diamonds
  3. VCA RG Alhambra in GMOP and pave alternating
  4. Bvlgari RG pave serpenti ring
  5. Bvlgari RG pave serpenti bracelet
Not to wear all at once, of course. I do wear all of my rings often though and would keep the love bracelet on indefinitely.

So far I've gotten 4 other rings and a special gold bracelet with roses throughout but I don't know whether I should aim to finish collecting all of my rings or move on to bracelets for now! Any thoughts? :amuse:
Updates!
  1. Tennis bracelet – either princess or round cut
  2. Cartier RG love bracelet — either plain or with 4 diamonds (we ending up getting the 4 diamonds for my mom so that has satisfied my urge to acquire it haha it looks beautiful on her)
  3. VCA RG Alhambra in GMOP and pave alternating
  4. Bvlgari RG pave serpenti ring (in love!)
  5. Bvlgari RG pave serpenti bracelet (decided this might just be too much for me although it is still gorgeous)
I hope to get a VCA bracelet sometime over the next year or two! I plan to only have one so sometimes I'm not sure if I want the GMOP/pave or a simple guilloche. Anyone have any opinions on this?

Your bracelet with roses sounds so unique, I would love to see a picture if you care to share!

I will when I'm back home! It's a 22k YG chain bracelet with about 4-5 gold roses throughout the chain. It's quite dainty and cute.
 
Joining in on all the fun! I've had these items on my wishlist for a many years now. I want to have a classic curated jewelry collection that works with my everyday life as well as a few pieces that I can dress up. When I purchased my Cartier Tank francaise 16 years ago, I made a list of Cartier items I wanted to eventually add to my wishlist, I didn't get around to it, Now that I'm ready to add these pieces, the prices have gone up significantly! to avoid more price increases the following pieces are on my short term list. I plan to add these within the next few months going into early 2025. I mainly wear white metals WG, platinum, and silver, however I want to add a few pieces of yg to my jewelry arsenal to mix metals or just to wear gold in the warmer months.

Short term: Absolute purchase for 2024-2025

Cartier love wedding band ring pave YG- a lovely right hand ring ( self love from me to me)

Looks like someone will be super busy ;) What an exciting list!
 
I don’t own pearl but might add one when I’m at Japan end year. I already have shopping list from friends who like to piggy back the pearls!

Read that Japan (I’ll be at a few cities) is a good place for VCA too but I have been thinking and I really don’t have any VCA wish list. May add Ecrou if the feeling is right there (don’t have jewelry-shopping mood at homeland at the moment :P)

Right now I have 60 pieces of jewelry. I would like a pair of yellow gold hoops. I am not much of a diamond girl but some studs.
I also have gray, white, and lavender pearl necklaces and I would like to get the matching studs to them...nothing too expensive.
Most of mine are diamond, a very high proportion coloured diamond -in fact when I was 16, I sold all of my jewellery to buy a fancy yellow diamond ring, which the following year I traded up to an Argyle pink diamond ring!

I also have some South Sea pearl pieces (both white and golden), a Burmese sapphire ring which I may gift my dear Niece, and a couple of white gold watches.

But the majority of my collection is diamond-going forward I will gift my Niece something every birthday ..obviously not something which I wear.

I’m also still adding to my collection, mainly Type 11 a and b and Argyle diamonds.

You sound like you have a beautiful collection. I have niece that I am always gifting her my pieces. I hope she enjoys them. I am more of a gemstone type of person. I think diamonds with color are beautiful. I never thought of focusing on one stone before. The majority of my stones are ruby but I have other gemstones too.

Rubies are also very beautiful, they are the most valuable gemstone,I’m sure your Niece appreciates your pieces as much as mine does!
