Precious jewels, every bit as stunning as their parents. Fun to see mini versions of mom and dad. And, how quickly they grow!
If only... but thank you! (and thank you Sheryl, LC, DAF, DJM, DL, Saqsay)
So, here's a couple of highly overdue hand/wrist/ear shots, but first, Vermeer, thank you for the idea: here's a smaller pearl, but more beautiful girl (who is starting to develop definite ideas about what she wants for Christmas... and it ain't toys or sweets, oh no, Sir!)
Detail of the other ear...
Another girl with a pearl earring - or rather many pearls. The René Boivin 1937 pair described above.
and the same girl wearing a couple of 1930s pieces that might
just about come from the same place... both definitely come from France. It's interesting how the change of camera is revealing that the sapphires are actually bluer than the chalcedony beads. It's practically invisible to the eye, unless in full sun.
All three (or four) together, this time with a smile
Over the next few days I'll exploit the Holidays break by retaking photos of some of the "older" pieces - I've never been happy with some of the images, and the new camera, more practice (and improved PhotoBucket + forum) could result in nicer photos. If there is anything in particular you want to see - or know more about - post here!
In the meantime, Happy New Year to all CDIers!
