As I promised you in Part 1…I am here today with even MORE pictures from the glorious 2017 Original Miami Antique Show.
If you like any of the things in these pictures even a little bit, you really need to come next year and see it all in person for yourself.
Trust me. Go look at my photos from 2016, if you need more proof. Plus, who doesn’t want to go to Miami in February? Sunshine, palm trees, antique jewelry! It’s a great combination.
I think I officially have a crush on portrait lockets as a category. If I could afford to buy all the ones I love, I’d have quite the collection of them by now.
This one was particularly fabulous: the portrait lady’s jewelry, the blue enamel accents, the engraved back! It opens into three frames on the inside, and contained a tiny photo of a mystery gentleman.
You remember the massive rose cut diamond ring from Jogani that we admired in Part 1 of this recap? It had two more cousins in that display case.
These two are just as wonderful. The blue enamel is particularly irresistible.
When people ask me how I can wear 100+ year old jewelry in my daily life, I like to show them a piece like these pearl and turquoise earrings from The Spare Room.
How can you not want to wear them?? Sure, they’re from 1880 – but they’d go with almost any contemporary wardrobe.
This magical unicorn of a moonstone ring was snapped up shortly after I posted it on Instagram, but it was too pretty not to show you anyway.
This Swiss enamel bracelet from Sam Sadien belongs in a museum. Each panel is beyond perfect; the level of detail becomes more incredible the closer you get.
