Hello Bling Lovers,
What a wonderful time I had with my oldest daughter. She was married last weekend and she wanted to wear something from my Mom’s collection of rhinestone jewelry. We looked and sorted. We went through at least a hundred pieces before she selected a necklace and matching dangle earrings. The stones were clear with no foil backing. They were set to dangle in gold. The necklace was delicate and had so much sparkle. The earrings were not large but hung down in the same pattern and matched the dangle of the necklace.
I was reminded of how marvelous vintage rhinestones are. They can be outrageously large and complex. Or they can give their sparkle to a delicate and lovely piece. Just look at this wonderful brooch. It is perfect to add to a wedding dress or to a hair pretty or to hold a veil. It could be used in a bouquet if placed just right. Rhinestones make happy jewelry. I am going to be sharing more of mine. Perhaps we can share ideas about how we like to use and wear our jewelry. I thank my Mom for collecting so much and letting me and my lovely daughters share. It was wonderful to find just the right piece for my bride daughter. Bernice
