Retro Jewelry & Historical Counterparts with Gail Carriger

Just a little glimpse at some of my favorite pieces, and some of the originals mine are modeled on. Mine are all fake mind you, but it's the look that counts if you ask me, Fashionable Reader.

vintage piece, faux, a gift for me when I was a little girl and still around. I love the length.

"Jewelry should not be worn in the early morning, with the exception of rings habitually worn; a brooch and ear-rings, which should not be of pearls or diamonds: these gems are for full dress."
~ Etiquette for Ladies, c. 1850

  1. Of what is shown, my favourite is the drool-worthy Art Deco pearls and diamond piece from Marsh & Co
