Hello, my darlings!
Did you know that it’s now been three years since I started writing Diamonds in the Library? Closer to three years and one month, actually.
This past year has been exciting for so many reasons: my first trip to VicenzaOro; my second annual visit to the summer jewelry shows in NYC; my wedding (!!!), at which I was decked out in antique diamonds; meeting so many fellow-jewelry lovers online and in real life, and so many more incredible experiences.
Another major life change that I’ve alluded to but not actually announced here is that I’m now a full time blogger. I resigned from my day job and I’m going all in with Diamonds in the Library. I’m still figuring out all of the glorious puzzle pieces of that, but I’m thrilled to finally have the time to devote to making this site in to all that it can
be. I also have a few exciting collaborations coming up – stay tuned for more details soon.
None of this would be possible without you, my dearest readers. Do you know what I think? I think you deserve a present.
Thanks to Trademark Antiques, I can offer you the chance to win a really good one.
This Art Nouveau pendant is antique, probably dating to the early 1900’s, and features a beautiful floral design in enamel over 14k gold. The prize includes the lovely 14k gold chain shown in the photos, so the lucky winner will receive this piece in ready-for-action condition.
Isn’t it lovely? I think it’s so wearable, with its gentle hints of color and enticing open design. The subtlety of the colors mean it would be at home in any season. I just love the way the flower’s tiny golden stem loops over the round frame of the pendant and then back around.
