A throwback for my antique lovers…
A lively, dark royal blue enamel is the background for three bright antique rose cut diamonds of approximately two carats in weight. The stone settings are crimped around the gems in the 18th and 19th century manner. The center diamond, an elongated round, is the largest of the stones. The original shank is intact. c. 1790

A throwback from 1941 for my antique lovers…a rose gold cigarette case by Verdura! I do not smoke but I could see using this to carry credit cards and a lipstick for a nice evening out.
The “Shell” case was designed by Verdura as a part of a series of five cigarette cases for Cole Porter. This one commemorated the release of Columbia Pictures’ You’ll Never Get Rich, starring Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth.

This past weekend I was in New Orleans (one of my favorite cities) and I took some time to stroll down Royal street to look at antiques. One of the stores that caught my eye was Moss Antiques which carries objets d’art, chandeliers, antique furniture and jewelry. I tried on beautiful mourning bracelets with black enamel as well as several gorgeous antique gold rings. With so many one of a kind pieces, it is definitely worth stopping by when you are in New Orleans. Ask for Mark McBride when you do, he is a wealth of knowledge!
A throwback for my antique lovers! As a May baby, I love emeralds!
I found this beauty from Arrow and Anchor. A perfect website if you are just getting into purchasing antique jewelry. They have some great rings with affordable pricing!
P.S. Fashion week has started! www.style.com will be my go to website this upcoming week.
P.P.S. I cannot wait to share with y’all a project I am working on for October! Stay tuned!

When I graduated high school, family friends gave me my first piece of Tiffany and Company jewelry and I must say I’ve been a fan ever since. I still wear that bracelet almost daily, so when I had the opportunity to enjoy a private preview of their new Atlas collection, I jumped at the chance. Quite honestly there is something for everyone in this collection and I absolutely love their addition of rose gold because I have found it is the perfect complement to any skin tone. And with price points beginning at $125, what better way to start collecting your very own Tiffany pieces!?!
P.S. I am not sure which one is my favorite piece, this one or this one. I adore this collection so much I am already plotting to have a friends over and serve champagne in this, at a table like this, and with flowers like this!! A little fancy. Just like I like it. Now who is going to cook?
