Van Cleef & Arpels - Vintage Alhambra

By now, you have probably realized that I am a girl who loves the classics.

One of the good things about being a little older is that by this age, you have most of the things that you need, and so can slow down, take your time and think about what you really want.

Something that is special enough to invest in, that will look good for years to come, and that can be passed down to your daughter one day....

If you only buy one serious piece of jewelry in your lifetime, then I think it should be this...

The Mother of Pearl (MOP) Vintage Alhambra necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels. It goes with everything, from jeans to a ball gown, and women in the know everywhere recognize it.

I was lucky enough to receive these on my 20th wedding anniversary. Thanks honey :-)
