This last week has been another dazzling feast for the eyes and brain. thank you to Amrapli for a private view of their fabulous modern Indian jewellery at the V&A . Joyous glittering colours – sapphire, ruby , diamonds, emeralds , and the workmanship…… and the V&A at night , quietly led through to an exclusive view of the Pearls exhibition. Charles 11 liked his pearl earring enough to wear it to his execution…… real pearls of colours that I didn’t know  existed in nature, bold designs ancient and up to date …… I’ll go back again.
