Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This file allows you to use the bon voyage vacation jewelry in CAS and any shop in any (sub)neighbourhood. With vacation jewelry i mean the rings, necklaces, bracelets,... that you can buy only in one particular vacation destiny. Obviously Bon Voyage is needed to get the jewelry.

To install simply put the file in your download directory. Your sims can buy all jewelry now in any shop. After you remove to file, your sims will still keep all jewelry they bought.

IMPORTANT NOTE: i also added a file with the collectible jewelry. These are jewels you can find by digging for treasures. This file works the same way. But i don't know what will happen if you try to dig for a treasure and find jewelry with this file installed. I tried to test it but my sims hardly ever find anything but bones and rocks. So use the file with the collectible jewelry at your own risk. Any feedback on this issue is welcome.
just to be clear: the vacation jewelry (non-collectible) is safe to use, only the collectibles are not, until further notice.

UPDATE: USE COLLECTIBLE JEWELRY WITH CAUTION: The collectible jewelry file will cause problems when you try to comb for seashells. I will leave it here but I suggest you only use it when creating a new sim and then take it out before you play with this sim on a beach lot. The sim will keep the jewelry as they are added to his/her 'wardrobe' but the jewelry won't be available in shops anymore. If you don't want to use it, you can still use the vacation jewelry (non-collectible) without any problems.

Might there be a way to clone the collectibles with new GUIDs and enable them as normal jewellery? I'm not very good with SimPE otherwise I would do that, but is there something preventing that?

Thanks I really like the vacation jewelry but almost never go on vacation. I have several jewelry stores and this will make them better.
