What is it they say about Diamonds?

So it is truth time.... I am completely obsessed with jewelry, and in particular, Diamonds. I get the fascination, I really do. Of course I love other gemstones, Sapphires being a personal favorite and what is in the center of my engagement ring, which my husband and I designed together with our jeweler, but there is something about diamonds... big, small, single, clustered.... they are entrancing.

 

So when Barbara walks into the store last week, with a "Look what I have!", I became as giddy as a little school-girl! From her "English Jewelry Man" she had brought the store a whole bag full of AMAZING antique pieces of jewelry, and the diamond pieces , including an Antique 18K White Gold, Diamond and Pearl Lavalier and a Half Carat Diamond 14K White Gold Pinkie Ring, were just sensational.

I have been a kid in a candy store, choosing each day what new piece of jewelry I am going to wear with the outfit of the day to best showcase the jewelry, and today I went back to the Lavalier and the Pinkie Ring on one hand, and a beautiful 2 and a half carat Deco 14K White and Yellow Gold Ring.

Maybe it is the colorless, go-with-anything quality, maybe it is the sparkle, but one thing is for certain, I am now, and always will be, a fan of DIAMONDS!
