We received an email from the lovely press office of Van Cleef & Arpels yesterday and everyone in the office had to wipe the drool from their mouths. It was worse than putting a chocolate cake in front of a weight watchers meeting. Here’s what the email looked like:
First of all, brilliantly designed! Secondly….how much are we now going to do in to debt for wanting one of these pieces?
If you aren’t already familiar with the brand, Van Cleef & Arpels is one jewelry house not to pass by if you should be strolling the world’s great shopping streets. Recently their clover styled pieces have been worn by just about every celebrity and socialite going. Emily wears her black clover necklace for any social event she can get away with (she thinks she is uber-posh or something ;)).
We shot an email straight back to the press office and asked for details, specifically of the ring pictured. We received this nice image in return:
Along with the price (£2,150) which has prompted us to do two things:
1. Leave hints everywhere we can that this is the only ring (besides an engagement ring) that we could ever desire, and oh my gosh it just happens to be Valentine’s Day on Sunday.
2. In case all the hints are ignored, we’ve called our bank manager and asked about a small loan for personal reasons that cannot be divulged. Let’s hope he doesn’t read the blog.
