Steam rose from the surface of my coffee mug as I perched it on the edge of the windowsill. The panes were foggy with the heat of the winter morning. Snow touched the ground that night, leaving a soft sprinkling of flakes on the still green grass. I watched as the sun rose through the pristine pink of the sky, I felt the coolness of my ring on my finger, and smoothness of the gold against my skin. The opals matched the sky, blue, and pink and mesmerizing, mixing with the green of the pines and the orange of the sun. Both were quite a sight to be seen.

I was wandering New Bond Street, with an Everbean coffee in hand, and frosted gluten free coffee cake in the other. I was enjoying the early morning briskness as I waltzed in to one of my favorite hidden gems of an antique store. After trying on too many tweed jackets from the 70’s, and shopping the shoe section for far too long (the brown leather go-go boots were to die for), the owner pulled out a silk drawstring bag. Between your basic gold bands, a silver bauble or two, and a few loose garnets, was this stunner. I slipped it on and wore it for the next week. I had to test it out before selling it to you, I am a professional, after all.

I was strolling through the narrow cobblestoned streets just north of Paris, in a small town not used to strangers. I found a sandwich shop and in my best broken French ordered ‘un sandwich avec jambon et fromage’ and a glass of Rosé. The man I ordered from was kind, he moved slowly, enjoying the summer’s heat. The small patio overlooked a valley of clay roofed houses and intertwining streets. I found a table and sat. As I held onto the stem of the clear glass, my bracelet caught the sun’s light, making it glow like a cave of wonders. I sipped the wine, tasting the notes of strawberry and basil, letting the flavors linger on my tongue. I noticed how my wrist looked like the sun itself, giving life to earth, making the heavens envious. I also noticed the view and the toughness of my baguette sandwich, and how the wine gave tastes to the bread that could only be found here, right here, in this place, in this moment.

She’s standing on the platform, waiting for her train. The relentless rain finally stops after a morning of storms, so she steps forward into the rays of sunlight gladly bursting through the clouds. Her long coat is beginning to become too warm, so she unbuttons it, letting cool air rush in. Around her neck is a locket that she grabs, sliding it open, gazing at a sepia photograph for only a moment before flipping the mirror side to her face. She reapplies her lipstick and tucks a few stray hairs back into place. She closes her eyes, feeling the sun’s warmth, listening for the faraway train, picturing the wheat fields of her childhood farm blowing in the morning breeze.

Ivy clings, it grows along walls, over stones, up trees, and inches toward the sky, forming a unity with its sturdy base. Jewelry with an ivy motif was given as a representation of fidelity, friendship and eternity during the 1800s. In Britain, ivy was called, “lovestone”, named for the way it clung to stone walls.
These antique French ivy leaf gold earrings were handcrafted around 1890 in 18 karat gold. Each drop earring features a round creamy white pearl at the top with a long drop link chain that leads to an ivy leaf shaped drop dotted with another round pearl. A rose cut diamond can be found at the very top of each earring, adding glimmer to an elegant pair of earrings. Each earring measures 42 x 11 mm and together they weigh 2.1 grams. They bear the eagle head hallmark, indicating they are made in 18 karat gold and they were essayed in Paris.
These earrings have a back to front closure which works just as it sounds. The earring goes through the ear from behind and clips in the front. They are extremely comfortable to wear, but it can take a little time getting used to putting them on. The key is to wiggle the earring instead of trying to just push it through. Don't be surprised if you get hooked on this style of closure once you get used to it!
