I'm sitting opposite a young woman on a train who looks brilliant in a pair of pearl earrings. I want some now. I'd always thought of such things as fuddy duddy but she looks young and cool.

I have diamond earrings, I don't wear them.

I'm coveting a shortish pearl necklace atm but I can't get past the oyster thing. I wouldn't mind so much if they were being eaten anyway. It's daft, I know.

I am a magpie and would love each finger adorned with some beautiful precious stone ring with lots of diamonds. Maybe in another life. grin

Anything with rubies. They're gorgeous.

I was watching a programme called posh pawn the other day - recovering from op and so bored I'll watch anything. There was a huuuge ruby on there 25 carats +. It was beautiful.

I love pearls. I like scuffing around in jeans ... and pearls.

I'd like to be brave enough to wear a diamond on a necklace. In reality though I would catch it on something and spend most days on the floor looking for it.

A big shiny purple necklace. I have a dress that it would go with, but I haven't seen anything I like at a sensible price!

I love fashion but for some reason I've never been into jewellery. It irritates me more than anything else, getting in the way and slapping against my skin.

I look at Liz Taylor's jewellery collection and am totally un-wowed.

A Rolex watch with lots of diamonds.
A Classic Cartier 'C' ring with black diamonds on each edge.

Anything by Chopard with the floating diamonds & a big pair of diamond studs... Rather than the Argos CZ ones I'm currently sporting!!

Always had champagne taste & brown ale money me!! confused

Not a fan of jewellery but a black diamond and platinum ring would be nice.

This thread was made for me. I have seen a sapphire and diamond ring (the diamond is 4 carats!) which I have fallen in love with.

£46 k worth.

Crazy money.

A Chanel J12 watch and a big blinging engagement ring!

I love my pearl earrings & necklace!

I would love a tennis bracelet.

Currently, I'd like a Cartier Love bracelet and a Juste Un Clou bracelet. And the end bits of the Georg Jensen Fusion ring - preferably with diamonds, but I'm flexible. I'd take any Georg Jensen jewellery to be honest.
I'd also like a white gold Rolex with black dial, diamonds and the President bracelet.

I love the shiney things....and I have some money...but I don't ever buy jewellery....this makes no sense!

Also why are tennis bracelets called that?

pud1 Thu 31-Jul-14 15:01:19

i would love a tennis bracelet with lots of large beautiful diamonds.

i own a tennis bracelet with lots of small diamonds that i do like but it just makes me think of what my perfect bracelet would look like

I love Cartier Panthere stuff, but never going to happen! grin besides, I'd only loose/break it!

The name comes from when Chris Evert dropped her bracelet during a US Open match in 1987. The game was stopped so she could find the bracelet.
It's described in more detail here:

A diamond Tag watch and a ruby and diamond eternity ring.

There was once a Cartier necklace that I saw that was sort of a tiny, jewel-encrusted bust of a panther. It was absolutely stunning and I'm always hoping to find one that isn't 'price on consultation', because 'price on consultation' means 'not on ChubbyKitty's wages'.

Love that oak leaf bangle Shia. A snip at just £8k!

ShakeYourTailFeathers Thu 31-Jul-14 15:13:32

When I was recently waiting for DH's watch to be fitted with a battery I tried on a gorgeous ring - square yellow diamond surrounded by tiny white diamonds

so simple and so beautiful....evil woman in the shop suggesting I try it on grin

I'd like this panther please. It used to belong to Wallis Simpson and was sold at auction for $12.4mn a few years ago shock.

I very, very rarely wear jewellery. I doubt I'd wear the panther even if I was surrounded by bodyguards. But I'd love it to be mine and just look at it and stroke it.
