    Default LV Portfolio management....

    Hello All,
    I thought it was time I shared with you my luxury goods portfolio.

    I firstly hope this does not "annoy" "upset" anyone..... I am sharing this information for the following reasons:-

    1) so members here can advise me if you think my portfolio is lacking in any area (perhaps our diamonds are too small considering the other items..... perhaps we need more of a certain type of item.....)
    2) so members here can advise me what to buy next
    3) to share the prices I paid for goods in our collection - so you can see the % ratios I feel comfortable
    4) incase any one wants to see a piece I have not already posted a picture of.

    very surprised nobody has commented.... i dont bite!

    a few questions:-
    1) What is missing in our collection?
    2) What should we buy next?
    3) Are the diamonds too small considering the quality of the rest of the collection?

    To be honest Archie42 I am not sure what to say so perhaps some other members feel the same way. All the questions are very subjective. If the diamonds are too small or not that is matter of taste. Some women like big diamonds others do not.

    As for the LV collection all seems very classy to me and safe, which on my book is perfect. One idea may be to add something more contemporary but it may not be your taste. Some LV styles although beautiful may be too juvenile for others. I would add some graffitti (maybe the older graffitti because is more subdued). Suhali is definetly a must if you ask me.

    TOTAL $18,920.00 $72,100.00

    Is this an earring, necklace or ring? I've seen pics of your jewelry case and I feel like that piece was a cluster pearl piece right? I know you have the south sea pearl necklace which is gorgeous and a great size for the pearls. I think every woman should also have a white pearl necklace either short, long or both preferably. As far as the diamond size, like M Butterfly mentioned, not everyone goes for huge rocks. I myself prefer smaller diamonds bec. I'm petite probably or it's just my taste. I wear a solitaire that is a touch over 1ct and bigger than that isn't my taste for me, but I'll admire it on others.

    As far as your LV goes I'd second the suhali addition. I notice you don't have an alma and that is a classic timeless one to have so I would add a damier or epi alma since you have plenty of mono. I just noticed in your avatar you have a mono alma, so the alma isn't such a necessity if that's the case. I love the alma bec. it's such a polished look.

    OOOPS!
    We do actually have a Monogram Alma.... but I forgot to put it on my list! (THANK YOU).

    the alma is a classic.... and a piece to love.

    The fresh water pearls are a white single strand necklace. I will post a pic.

    I thought of some other things that are jewelry basics. A diamond tennis bracelet, they make them at all price points, fortunately for my dh my parents got me one for my 19th birthday, I didn't ask for it, but my mom is a diamond person and wanted me to have it. I asked for a simple heart bracelet that year, like just a gold heart bracelet but I wasn't disappointed with their choice, lol. The other thing is a signature brooch with genuine stones that can be worn with a suit or on a cardigan set. I have yet to get my brooch, I only have a faux brooch set of rhinestone pandas a mom one w/ a baby, which lives permanently on one suit. In my mom's generation owning a cameo brooch was an essential. Some people also like to have a piece of jade, like a pendant or bracelet. For me I would like to add a longer strand of white pearls and a brooch probably with pearls in it or onyx/daimonds.

    I agree with you Speedydelivery. Good for you that your Mom got disappointed with your choice that year. I think a tennis bracelet is very classy. BTW I love cameos. I do not have any but love them. Anything intaglio is on my list as well a black pearls necklace...
