Ah. I read that on the other thread and thought you were in Bangkok and it was baht!

I don't even like it but then I'm not into big rings. I do like pink though.

We were in Brisbane. I don't like the ring either - but how often do you get to try on a 7 million dollar ring !!! I don't like the shape and I think it looks over done !
But I do like pink too.

I thought that was a telephone number.
I was in Bulgari looking at their new range and saved half a fortune this month.
Mrscove went to Tous and Arche without me. I may have to refer her to someone who handles shoe and bag disorders.

I used to work at Angus & Coote. We had a diamond: Australia's largest diamond, a 95-carat gem known as the 'Golconda D'or,' was stolen from an exhibition in the Sydney Town Hall.
One of my jobs was to take this diamond from store to store when it was on exhibit. It was kept in an old Seiko watch box. I would often sit it on my finger to see how it would look as a ring - not good.

C'mon ladies, only one Tiffany bag?

We were there at 5th Avenue - spent less than $US100 (2 items) and got these bags

The items were in small tiffany boxes (out of picture) then put in the smaller bag which was then placed in the larger bag. Its all about the bags.

Would love to have a pink diamond ring, but not that one. It is almost criminal to create something so ugly from a lovely diamond.

Precisely ! I thought it was gaudy - but I didn't tell the sales lady that !

The salesperson probably thought the same thing, but she has a job to do ðŸ

Having shopped at the 5th Ave store, my husbands standard response to, "Look, theres a Tiffanys.", is "If its not 5th Avenue, we're not shopping!".

I have tried on a $250K diamond ring once but hubby is kinda attached to his kidneys and wouldnt buy it for me.

It's Mephisto for walking shoes apparently.
I used to buy Mrscove Bruno Magli shoes and handbag combos but I have been made redundant. Sacked you could say.
I think Mrscove might visit Peter Sheppard this weekend in Melbourne. Seems you need to keep buying.....

I am rather partial to Mr Sheppards shops as well. Last time I came out with 3 pairs :rolleyes:

Had to laugh as your post reminded me of something. Tiffany (no 's') is the store/ brand. We were looking it up at work a while back using the name plus .com.au.

Turns out Tiffanys (.com.au) is a massage parlour and IT wanted to know why we were accessing such a site from a work computer...

I have to agree there is something special about those Tiffany bags.

i once booked a weeks stay at an Airbnb apartment in Singapore based on nothing more than the fact that it was tastefully decorated in Tiffany Blue !

Have just been down to South Coast Plaza and that place can be a wealth attack. Have secured Mrscove’s birthday pressies with her help.
I hope you didn't shop the place out - we will be there in October ! So what did you get MrsCove ?? :D
