Inside Asprey

Inside Asprey turns out to be a fascinating documentary about life in the shop today. And it is wonderful to see how freely people speak and how the human aspect of this life is shown. When you watch the documentary, which I would highly recommend, you get a much better idea of what the jewelry world is all about.

Spring is in the air! Birds by Van Cleef & Arpels

Like I wrote in an earlier blog about Spring; that first birdsong in the evening. Waking up and hearing an ever stronger concert of birds greeting the new day.  Ah yes, Spring is back. This week it’s Van Cleef & Arpels showing us their amazing collection of bird jewelry.

A Boucheron special!

Jewelry with animals, Boucheron

Boucheron loves animals. This famous Parisian Jewelry house has a large collection of the most imaginary pieces of jewelry with animals as their inspiration. As I am an animal lover, a jewelry lover and I adore humor in jewelry, this just tickles my senses.

The Patalia Necklace by Cartier, the most extravagant necklace ever

In beautiful colorful India there once were Maharaja’s. The Indian subcontinent was divided by many little and bigger princely states, there were 600 of them!  And the Maharaja’s were the rulers of these princely states.One of the most extravagant and famous maharaja’s was Bhupinder Singh. He was born in 1891 and was maharaja of Patalia by the age of 9. There are some amazing and weird stories about this person, one of them is the story that he used Rolls Royce’s to transport garbage. (it seems that Rolls Royce has been complaining and even refusing to deliver cars for this reason, they were offended!)
