The Saint Laurent Bracelet

The Saint Laurent Bracelet

It was time for me to invest in timeless jewelry….

While getting dressed recently for our Open Studios , my sweet admirer mentioned that my look would be REALLY great with a beautiful watch or bracelet. I stopped, and said, “Well, that would be nice wouldn’t it… if I had like, even one truly noteworthy piece of accessory to adorn my body.”

And so, this was my thought process when I first saw the Saint Laurent bracelet. Simple, clean lines, not too round and not too sharp and of course GOLD! It was perfect, I would take four! (Slow down Brie, you will take one so you can eat next week and you will adore that bracelet as though it was a gift from Yves himself.)

Voila! Here it is, my first outfit enhancing piece of jewelry to last a lifetime. (My lifetime, I will be buried with that bracelet ;) )

    Minimal and perfect. Stunningly simple piece.

    Simple and elegant. Truly a timeless piece.
    I have one similar from Dolce & Gabbana and I wear it all the time. Whether by itself or combined with others, it attracts attention.

    Hello Brie, although the bracelet is beaitiful, i m not quiet sure that a bracelet in VERMEIL is really a bracelet for life… wear it a bit day in day out and it will loose all it s luster.. for that price, you can def find something more longlasting (lahtough most probably not branded)… bestx

    Hello Brie,
    I totally understand your envy to have a jewel that will last for your all life (sorry i’m french …)
    BUT, really, that’s exactly the kind of thing you should be discussing with a jeweler, that can create something really special JUST FOR YOU, that will have a story and will last forever.
    I have just bought a golden ring that a jeweler i know for a long time and appreciate, have done for me, and for the same price I would have had the smallest ring by Ginette_Ny (witch I adore but I would have been paying for the name of the brand).
    And Charlotte is absolutely right that a vermeil bracelet won’t last as good as real stuff !
    I think high-value jewelry is the one subject that shouldn’t be chosen because of the brand.
    Have a nice day !

    mmmh…mais qu’est-ce donc qu’un admirateur secret ? un admirateur dont l’identité doit rester secrète ou un admirateur qui t’envoie de charmants petits mots ?

    I agree with Charlotte and Marie. Vermeil is not gold and it won’t last all your life. For a simple bracelet like this you’re just paying for the brand … Get the real stuff!!

    I recently got my pandora bracelet and I must say that I have never gotten any better and more beautiful gift! What is better than keeping all of your memories on your arm?

    Is it gold-filled, gold-plated or solid gold? It’s just that I, too, invested in a Saint Laurent jewellery piece, which I believed would last a lifetime and even become a family heirloom or something, but to my disappointment, it turns out it was merely gold-plated (despite being outrageously expensive) and the patina is already wearing out (after only 2 years, during which time I wore it only a few times). And it’s not like I didn’t take care of it properly! I was suuupercareful.

    I am sorry to say this but this bracelet looks like the one you can get for a euro at just any random souvenir stall. Nothing special at all, well , of course, this is my opinion. When I think of timeless elegance I think of Alhambra bracelet by Van Cleef and Arpels (which i know is super expensive but then…we are talking timeless) , or Cartier, or even vintage Chanel… (i think timeless does not need to be plain boring..it has to be classic and interesting.)

    As a jeweller, I can but agree with the ladies above. I do love super refined design though! And think if Saint Laurent invested in making perfect quality across all their product as they do with clothes and accessories, it would be awesome.

    Timeless and chic – at least, in terms of style!
