    If I am allowed to take them I will definately try, not sure if I will do them any justice with my absolutely non-existent photographic skills...

Many pearl creations, but it was the closest I'll ever be to a 57 carat diamond!

    How lucky you were to visit this exhibition! I am very interested in different time periods and cultures so I can imagine what a treat this must have been. Also noticed that there is a virtual exhibition to give us a taste of the real thing. I hope I can make a trip to Italy in the near feature and visit this, but I want a better understand of the jewelry on show first and read up as much as I can before that.

    Ama, I was fortunate to be in Paris during the exhibition. Such incredible artistry and such an abundance of gems and pearls. It was truly breathtaking. I hope you can get to Italy to see it.
