Grand Tour 2011: Treasure from Abroad (Part 1)

June 10, 2011

After travelling the earth for several weeks, I’m back and ready to look exploring new areas of jewellery! But before all that, I’ll pop a series of images on the blog of what I’ve taken back with me. All in all, everything came together very well – it was very interesting to see the different perceptions of mourning jewellery around the world. In some cultures, it’s the jewellery found on the peripherals of good taste or desirability, in others, it’s coveted and respected with the reverence it deserves.

And before I forget, a quick thank you to everyone whom I met overseas that visit the site! Your enthusiasm and passion for the subject is what keeps this collecting/educational mania alive.

Without further ado, here’s a blue enamel mourning ring from 1803 encrusted with some rather nice diamonds.
