Blue #2

This "diamond" is an aquamarine (blue beryl). The little golden brooch is a find from a charity sale and it was a real bargain. I think it’s a jewellery from the 1930ths, but I do know some similar brooches from old photographes (around 1890/1900) too.

It was great to know the story behind such an item, wasn't it?

In the first moment I only have to like it. The second thought is: Is it affordable? The peculiar knowledge is just the icing on the cake. In the end I buy often this small things for my daughter and not for myself. I enjoy most of the time the "process of finding" things not the "act of greed" of get a new possesion. Yes it sounds strange, but it is as it is ...
