jeg!!! That blue, yellow and white combination is so dreamy. My heart jumped though, when I saw Pkinnew's pearls :) I looked at those when she first sent me her list, and I couldn't decide which color ... and chose other pieces, which I DO treasure very much. It took you to think of buying both, and twisting them into big bubbles of champagne ... how fabulous ... Pkinnew would have loved that!

JEG, those Edisons look unreal (and I mean that in a good way). I'm so glad you got that Kojima necklace. When I saw it disappear quickly from the website, I was hoping one of us got it, if only so I can see it again, hahah.

I had that pendant in my cart for the longest time, and I kept flipping between it and the tin cup. It looks gorgeous.

Wow, thank you everyone for the very kind comments!

I love your description of the big bubbles of champagne, Cathy! I have a few other pieces from her wonderful collection as well.

BWeaves, I really debated on that tin cup, too. The only thing I’ve had on my short list was a biggish pearl pendant of any color, set in either white gold or sterling, and this pendant is perfect. It goes with just about everything I have.

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.

BWeaves! So so pretty!! I have taken to calling the one on the left, "BWeaves" It's Mikimoto, from my mother's jewelry case. View attachment 57057

Hehehe. It's gorgeous!!! I feel honored.

You might have to call the one on the right "BWeaves, too/2." Here's an enhancer from my Mom:

I need to call the enhancer Jersey Pearl.

On a different note, did any of us PGers buy the Kojima necklace with the white jade carved centerpiece and white drop pearl? That was another one I waffled on.

jeg, that mixed rope just GLOWS! Wow <3

BWeaves, I love how you put together necklaces with brooches. I'm always hesitant to wear them together, so I'll be taking notes of your pairings.

Battah, winter is always brooch season for me, so I'll try to take more photos that include brooches. It's when I wear my tweed jackets and sweaters, and they lend themselves to brooches better than T-shirts.

BWeaves, you're right. I tend to wear a lot of cardigans in the winter, so I should make more of an effort to wear brooches with them. They look great on your lapels.

I was in NYC the other day, and I cannot tell you how many women I saw wearing their brooches on top of tweed coats! They were wearing multiple pins at a time. Made me want to go buy a tweed coat with shawl collar.

Oooh I have a jacket with a shawl collar! Never thought to put brooches on it. HMMMMM....
