It’s been a while since I had the pleasure of attending the 2018 Miami Show. I had a fantastic time frolicking among the aisles of antique jewelry dealers, and then immediately afterwards I got so sick that I had to stop blogging for almost three months.
That means that I never showed you the treasures I met at the Original Miami Antique Show, which is unacceptable. I’ve given you a peek or two here and more on Instagram, but no big juicy recap (yet).
That changes today!
Let’s kick things off with this little pair of Iberian emerald dream earrings from Jane Fletcher. These are a bucket list item for a lot of antique jewelry lovers, myself included.
I flipped one over so that you can see how incredible the back is! You could stare at either side of these pretty much forever.
This is the very first piece I saw at this year’s Miami Show and it utterly knocked my socks off. I mean, LOOK AT IT.
It’s an Art Deco era necklace pendant in the shape of a question mark. A HUGE one. Those are some very sizable emerald cabochons and how about that center diamond?
I would love this piece if it were tiny (actually, if it were tiny, I would have bought it in a second) but it’s surprising size makes it all the more delightful. Why did some glamorous Art Deco era baller want to dress like The Joker? We’ll never know, but I’m glad it happened.
Thanks to Pam Benson for showing me this beauty!
It’s not an antique show if I don’t get to try on a tiara. This was my favorite of the Miami show. It’s just so elegant and well-proportioned! Also I suspect it looks amazing on me.
This antique Victorian era piece was in the collection on JS Jewels LTD and Keith MacRae! Thank you again, gentleman, for letting me play with it for so long.
Here’s a closer look:
Just in case you wanted to see only the tiara, instead of the tiara and me (although I stand by my assertion that it looks awesome on me).
It’s such a stunner. How about those big juicy old cut diamonds, eh?Read More
