This jewelry comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected these fine designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as uniqueness. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.
It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me. I am in the process of acquiring her complete collection and know that I will be keeping some special pieces for myself. I will also be offering some for sale and please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.
