My favourite brooches and one favourite Italian sapphire and diamond bracelet. The leaf is platinum with diamonds but my favourite is the 50īs-60-s yellow gold with diamonds and rubies which someone had made from a ring to the fashion of the day. I havenīt seen many brooches and I love them so I hope you will show me some pictures of yours.

Another try at getting a better pic. I forgot to mention the Victorian "en tremblant" which is silver with gold backing and it has a little spring to make it move and it must have sparkled at night.

Your last pic came out larger. I can see them better now. They're all beautiful. Is the one on the right a butterfly? I love that one. I love fairies/angels/butterflies! The one in the middle with all the gemstones is very pretty too!

Thank goodness it came out a bit larger. The one on the right is French and platinum and I thought it was a stylised leaf but now you have pointed it out I think it is a butterfly, thanks, I like that. The one in the middle is silver on gold with the flower on a little spring so that it could move and sparkle more ás the Victorian ladiesī moved about. I like the little one (English) with all the coloured gems for the reason that I picked it up in the middle of a box of fakes for about a $1, I love finds.

Wow, you have a great eye for quality! That's awesome the butterfly is platinum--you just can't get better than that! Do you ever watch The Antiques Roadshow? I love that show. Wouldn't it be fun to take your brooches there & see what they say?

I love the Antiques Roadshow. You learn a lot from that. By the way the orchid brooch is gold, platinum and diamonds and was bought also the same way in the middle of a lot of fake stuff. Cost not much more than the $1 brooch. Mind you this doesnīt happen often but when it does it makes you feel great. You have some lovely things, I have been admiring them and I am looking forward to seeing more pics and especially "finds".

You're right!!! He gave me that .45 ct round light pink diamond in the square setting (from Knox Jewelers) for Christmas. It was a complete surprise too! It was such a wonderful, romantic evening! We've been together for 6 years but that's the first time he's ever done anything like that, and something that extravagant! He felt bad I never got a true proposal so he was making up for lost time.

He also gave me (permission to buy) that .85 brownish/purplish pink heart (from Diamonds by Lauren). That one's actually for our 5th wedding anniversary in May, so it's a bit early.

So he's been very generous to me......I can't complain!

I just have an insatiable desire for jewelry!

I thought my memory was serving me ok. Wonderful husband and wonderful romantic gesture. You surely canīt complain. If I ask I can usually get, nothing that romantic though, I just point out what a great deal I am making, so I canīt complain either. Letīs see what we can find this year, it is only January so plenty of time.

I love the Victorian piece. How did you find that piece? was it inherited?

I am dying to find a diamond aigrette brooch. Funny enough, i have a very special family heirloom piece that i am getting copied (long story) and i am just adding a few different jewels to the new one.

I'll post it under the brooch section once it's done.

It's always fun to hunt for amazing finds
