My First T&Co

I would say that it is every girl's dream to own a piece of Tiffany or rather T&Co in this modern context. In the olden days, maybe it's every girl's dream to own a piece of diamond (well, it still is today) but now it is just not any diamond but one from Tiffany!

My dream of owning a piece of diamond (as big as my iris) encrusted into my white gold T&Co ring is still far from reality but that doesn't stop me from walking a step closer to realize my dream. What was meant to be a work appointment at Pavilion yesterday turned out to be my venue for dream realisation! I sauntered into Tiffany with my assistant and asked the lady in spectacles to show me the Somerset wide ring and then a 1837 concave ring. After trying on the 2 rings, I still cannot decide which one to buy. I have always liked Somerset but then later I have set my eyes on the 1837.



So, after deliberately trying on and taking off the rings a few times, I have finally decided after consulting Wei Mei to buy the 1837 concave ring based on the "blingness" of the ring and also the fact that it has a bold T&Co font engraved on the surface of the ring to make any person who had a glimpse of my finger would know that it is no ordinary silver.

Although I also heart the Somerset ring very much due to its casual and refined elegance, I only had the budget for one at the moment. If my bonus would have been granted, I would have bought both without any qualms. Even my assistant was shocked with my sudden purchase. She thought I was just having a look and I made the purchase in less than 10 minutes.



I cannot imagine the ecstasy of owning my first T&Co using my own money! Who says that any T&Co has to be given by a loved one (I wished I have that advantage)? T&Co designs are so elegant and fine that one wonders whether is it worth it paying for the hefty price tag just for a piece of silver in my case. Let's just say that the ring that size cost as much as the infamous Return to T&Co Heart Toggle Bracelet. If I were to melt that bracelet, I can probably make a few rings out of it! However, having said all that, it's worth getting my first blue box jewelery. I have been harping on it for years and one thing about T&Co jewelery is that the items are so versatile and subtle, you can wear them everyday and for any occasion.

The best thing about it is that you can send your jewelery back to their outlet for polishing for as many times as you want for a lifetime! And you need not show the receipt as they will be able to differentiate between a fake and the real one! And I will keep waiting for my first diamond ring from T&Co.


The sheer happiness of having my own blue box!

I'm sure many whom have own a T&Co would feel the same way too?!!

Note: I am not paid by T&Co to post this!
