{vintage alhambra}

I am obsessed with the Van Cleef & Arpels Vintage Alhambra collection! I especially love the white gold with mother-of-pearl, and also like the turquoise pieces.


I'd really love to have the 10-clover necklace in mother of pearl:

The turquoise is so pretty, too. Love this bracelet!:

I had this little beauty on my finger when we were in Paris, but didn't buy it and it is still one of my VC&A favorites. The double butterfly ring. They look like two little butterflys just perched between your two fingers--L O V E!!!

Umm....I guess she just said "I'll have one of each!". Not fair! Also not the way I'd wear mine, but to each her own! ;)

I love this pattern too. Heidi Klum had a jewelry line with QVC and used this clover pattern but I believe has to cease the production due to design infringement. You may still find some of her pieces out there if cost is a consideration. :)

I love Van Cleef & Arpels too! Valentine's Day is a-comin, perhaps the hubby can take a hint?

The turquoise is just beautiful *sigh* I'll keep dreaming!

Love VC&A, hope to get the clover necklace one day....maybe DH will finally take the hint for our next anniversary.
It should make us feel better to know that Cameron Diaz probably didn't have to buy hers! :-) XOXO

I also love the clover necklace. You can find good imitations for cheap from street vendors in NYC!

Yay, a post on jewelry. I do admire your butterfly ring. And I must admit that I think Diaz went a bit overboard. However, wouldn't it be nice to make such a fashion faux pas...too much of a good thing, ha. Your mother of pearl is stunning.

Love that design! Especially in the turquoise...obviously Cameron could NOT decide! I've been to the Alhambra in Spain and that design is mosaic'd all over the place. Pretty cool!

Heather said...

Oh, I love this jewelry too!
