    Default Pearl Parure from the Munich Jewelry Show

    Whoa- I was reading the latest issue of Pala Gems, when I came across some gorgeous pictures they took of some crown jewels currently housed in the Natural History Museum of Munich while they were visiting the African Jewels portion of the Munich Jewelry Show. They are absolutely delectable and I thought I'd take a sec to share before heading out for the weekend. Feast your eyes, ye pearl lovers and drool...

    I believe the first pic shows what is known as a stomacher intended to decorate the front of a lady's gown in the older days. A beautiful piece indeed.

    Ashley, the pics are great! My gut reaction when I see pieces like that are to ask the security guards if they can just lock me in the room for the night and let me try everything on as long as it's all back in place by morning. :-) Thanks for sharing!

    I feel more like asking them to hand me the keys, turn their back, and forget they ever saw me or the gems I wonder where you can buy one of the Men In Black things...
