Exploring the Blingier Side of 1950s Fashion

I received a gift this weekend, Gentle Reader. An item I mentioned coveting and then forgot about. Well, a very dear friend found and bought a replica for me. I am delighted and intend for it to become a signature article of Gail attire. It's just so very writerly.

This got me thinking about jewelry in general, so I thought I pop some of my favorite pieces up for posterity's sake. I know many of you come poodling round this blog for sage and satirical writing thoughts, but I have a daring secret to reveal. Sometimes, I'm not writing, I'm shopping.

OK, OK a lot of times.
