Following up to my previous post mentioning the ostentatious displays of bling in Gilded Age “society,” here is New York socialite (and -gasp - actress) #EdithKingdonGould
(Mrs. George Jay Gould) in 1903, draped in diamonds and natural pearls. I can easily imagine one of those ropes worn at the waist, suspending a giant gemstone, being gently kicked with each step... #GildedAge #Edwardianera #1900s #Prewar #pearlropes #pearlcollection
Good morning! Woke up with a helluva summer flu, BUT Le Show Must Go On! So I’ve wrapped every antique/vintage strand of natural pearls around my neck that I could find and I’ve gotta say... I feel better already. What’s the piece of jewelry that makes you feel the best?
Link for all and more is up in my bio.
