Lace is a timeless fabric that is very popular right now for dresses and skirts. Look for example on the Jetset Babes, they love pencil dresses and skirts made out of lace. Although this may not be a very new trend, I would call lace to be a classic piece, ready to wear any time, any season.
We know by now that designer bags are the must have status symbols on the arm of a Jetset Babe. But today I would like to pay attention to two other game players in terms of status: the watch and the bracelet.
There are many expensive brands for female watches: Rolex, Patek Philippe, Hublot, Cartier, Bulgari, Tag Heuer, Chopard etc.
The most common watch on the arm of a Jetset Babe is probably “Rolex Lady Datejust watch”. But if one would ever want to buy a watch as an investment, anything by Patek Philippe is a good choice. From a re-seller point of view, Rolex and Patek Philippe watches have higher second hand value than for example a watch like Hublot.
The three most common bracelets on the arm of a Jetset Babe are by far:
1. The Love bracelet by Cartier.

2. The “Juste un clou” bracelet by Cartier
Juste en Clou bracelet by Cartier
3. The alhambra bracelet by Van Cleef.

All of these bracelets come in different variations depending on the price. It all depends if you get the simple gold with no diamonds, or if you do diamonds and white gold etc. The price can climb to 10-20k per bracelet. But all Cartier bracelets start from about £4k or $USD 6k.
If a Jetset Babe ever get lucky being showered in gifts, then the best opportunity is to put handbags (classic ones like Hermés & Chanel), watches and jewellery on this wish list. Because these items have high re-selling value if one day comes when the wheel of fortune is not rolling the way it used to. Just something to keep in mind.
What do my reader think about female watches and jewellery? What is a must have, what is a good investment and what to stay away from?
