Treasures for body and mind

Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!

Whoot whoot- Fat Tuesday!  What a great day- and if you've never spent this Tuesday dancing with a stranger wearing a mink coat in the back of a pick up truck in the French Quarter watching the assistant DA proposition every woman who walked by, then add it to your bucket list.  It's a crazy day- until midnight.  

As long-time readers of this blog know, on Wednesday I will be gem-free for Lent so today I stack it on!  I wish I was wearing this Mardi Gras inspired collection of lovelies from www.1stDibs.com:

An exquisite and significant pendant by Boucheron in a delicious and compelling array of colors with a pristine faceted center deep purple amethyst surrounded by vibrant turquoise, chrysoprase and sparkling diamonds all set in striated 18k textured gold. A very eye-catching and beautiful piece. Measures 4.5" long and 2.75" wide. Amethyst measures 1 1/8" in diameter. Signed Boucheron Paris with French hallmarks and maker's mark. Circa 1970s.  Sold by Robin Katz.
 
Chandelier Earrings: Faceted vivid Amethyst set with Peridot Brillolettes and white Diamonds in 18K White Gold. Post with heavy friction earring back. One of a kind.  Sold by Emma Quist.



Oval-shaped bangle bracelet, set with three cabochon-cut oval amethysts and four cabochon-cut oval green tourmaline, accented by circular-cut diamonds, mounted in 18k yellow gold, with hinge on one side, medium to large-sized, signed Tiffany & Co.  Sold by Betterridge.
