    I have been drooling over the photos in the auction catalogues and cannot get past these magnificent earrings: http://www.sothebys.com/fr/auctions/...405/lot.2.html

    Yes these are very nice, but these ones are not bad too 17,5 and 18,20 mm long and what fantastic diamonds too, the room was burning when they came to auction !

    Those are gorgeous, but outside of my price range...the other pair, though I could have afforded...I think I am going to spend some time reviewing auction catalogues!!

    Gorgeous earrings!

    Looking at catalogues is time well spent. Sometimes you just drool, sometimes you find things that you can actually get.

    Yes indeed! I find the auction process quite fun, and it's always really neat to have a story behind a particular piece (even if it wasn't owned by someone famous).

    It looks like the chain mail work that I see the medaevil re-enactors make. My son is working on his knightly skills on horseback. He wears a 40 lb chain mail tunic when he is in garb.(Society for Creative Anachronisms, or Middle Ages with lots of fun)

    It does look like rib-knit; if it's a silver mesh bag those plates are tiny!

    Ok, the neck looks like maille, the pouch looks like plates (I can't tell what metal) and the pearls are darling - did someone famous own it?

    hah! When in doubt go to the link! Thanks for those links, Anna

    Those are outstanding earrings; wouldn't they look terrific with my silver-white hair, while bringing out the green in my hazel eyes, lol??!! JAR is an amazing designer; I've only seen photos of his work so far, and thank you for this one Anna.
