Turquoise Dreams

annina vogel

My mother collects Victorian jewelery, especially rings. As a kid I remember going with her to antique dealers in London, browsing through beautiful baubles and trinkets, and my favorite pieces were always the ones that featured turquoise, my birthstone. As an adult, I still love Victorian (as well as Georgian and Edwardian) turquoise jewelery, and the contemporary pieces it inspires. If I'm ever proposed to, I hope it is with an antique turquoise ring- no diamonds required. Here are some pieces, new and old, that I've been drooling over lately online.

Happy Valentine's Day!

victorian, from my collection

Even though I have been single for all but two Valentine's Days of my life, it is still one of my favorite holidays. Who doesn't love pink and red, and an excuse to eat chocolates and drink champagne? Hope you all have a great one!

Pretty Things

I've been a bad blogger. I've started using Pinterest (I know, terrible name) to keep track of things I like around the web instead of posting them here. I'm still going to try and post "Pretty Things" now and then but in the meantime you can always see what's inspiring me on my Pinterest boards. There's a lot to catch up on, so I'm going to split this into a couple of posts...
