JEG, You have excellent taste, because you bought everything I was waffling on, hehehe.
Monday, Kojima Tahitian necklace with Komoka black and white Tahitian studs. Mom's brooch. I think it's a porcelaine transfer pattern set in Pinchbeck. Pinchbeck is a form of brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, mixed in proportions so that it closely resembles gold in appearance. It was invented in the 18th century by Christopher Pinchbeck, a London clockmaker. Mom had quite a bit of Victorian jewelry she bought in Portabello Road in England made with Pinchbeck. It doesn't tarnish, but it has a patina that's very pleasant.
Today, super classic. Mom's circle brooch. My birthday necklace. And Kojima drops on my huggies.
Mom's akoya ring and freshwater bracelet.
