A really, great man visited alexis bitar shop and bought me a necklace and a couple of earrings. These are the most beloved items in my jewelry collection. My ear-rings are small hand made bullet-proof quality white lucite drops. They may have their backs colored with gold with gold-leaf pasted towards the front side. So special and exquisite. I usually get compliments while i put them on!
Jewels aren’t my close friends. I’ve certainly not been diamond jewelry somewhat woman. Alexis Bittar is probably the most wonderful precious stone jewelry I’ve found in a long time.
I stood inside the small store and only looked with the longest, the collections were so incredibly attractive. I in the beginning left without anything because I had just started my shopping for the day, but came back a day after. The saleswoman was welcoming when assisting me choose things i desired.
I lastly chosen an earrings! Bittar does things with jewelry which might be superior to the others…so special….
