great photo's Yvonne, the fascination of gems - and what people do to covet them,,
I never really appreciated the beauty of jewels, until one day I was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and was looking at this magnificently decorated sword within it's sheath? all solid gold and encrusted with jewels, a true work of art, and then I began to fully appreciate how extremely beautiful jewels garnered from mother nature then crafted into a form of art actually is.
