Well, I am an absolute sucker for jewellery inspired by jewels in historical portraits. Actually there are lots of historical portrait inspired things I know both Heather and I just love. This ranges from a desperate need to own a set of these wine glasses ->, and our undying appreciation of Project Runway Season 4 Episode 11. <3>
Anyway! So I came across these and had to share. Jewellery based on the gems worn by Mrs. Graham in her portrait in the National Galleries of Scotland. They are beautifully made, and I adore the gold detail around the garnet- and I usually don’t care for yellow gold! This just works. I included a close up so you can see the detail in the portrait, they are quite close! I will probably be posting more historical pieces like these in the future!
