Well, sorry I missed a week. A variety of things happened….a friend of mine had surgery for a brain tumor and then I came down with a nasty virus and ten days later I am finally getting back on my feet. By the way, my friend is doing really, really well.
As you know, jewelry and fashion go hand in hand. While I was recuperating I had a chance to catch up on my fashion reading. So. Much. Fun. This will be the first of a series on fashion and jewelry. Let’s dish!
Purple is the IT color of luxury and passion, of princely robes and papal vestments, dazzling gems and florid prose. And now it is one of the reigning colors of the season.
Moving from the runway to the jewel box, here are some beautiful dresses and amethyst and purple hued gemstones to kick off the fall season.
