TIER, a must-see exhibition of the Dutch Taxidermy duo Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren!

The TIER exhibition of Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren and Armando is held at the MOA Museum, situated in a lovely park just outside Utrecht. The park and the museum are beautiful, the area is so green and a magnificent example of the age of Enlightenment and worth a visit even without this wonderful exhibition, but as I am huge fan and deeply intrigued by the work of the Dutch taxidermists artistic displays, I did not want to miss the opportunity to see their artwork with animals from up close!

My 21 favorite American Jewelry Brands and designers

One in five pieces of tested fashion jewelry, in the Netherlands, has proven to contain a high to dangerously high amount of cadmium, lead or nickel. We have all the facts.

How these gemstones shattered all records!

How these gemstones shattered all records!

Image: A room, high expectations. Two stars enter, one is blue and one is pink. Both are very rare diamonds. The bidding starts and it crashes records within no time. One person walks away with two very precious and ridiculously rare gemstones, mounted both as a matching pair of earrings. It’s a world that most of us will never take part in, but one struggles to establish what amazes us more. The rarity and the beauty and sheer size of the stones? Or the price that people are willing to pay for this.

Is it an investment, or will some lady really wear this?

Watch trends 2017, why we want smaller and cheaper watches!

Watches are under pressure. First, it was the arrival of the iWatch causing concerns for the industry, but the iWatch, so far, seems to have merely opened the path to more smartwatch collections by many of the famous brands. Both high-end and middle class.

But it’s the shift in culture and what we like to spend our money on today that dictates the market. And that seems to have created a need for cheaper and smaller watches.
