    Hmmm, I saw this exhibition in NYC, or at least one like it at VCA.. VCA makes my favorite jewelry! I am lusting after the very first “pair” you showed in blue and red,,, called Rose de Noël. I should have bought them at auction years and years ago when they were a mite bit affordable, Suddenly not only have auction prices gone sky high, but the commission amount due to the Gallery rose to 25-30% from previous 5-10%. So my auction days are over! I now admire the jewelry from afar… So beautiful. Since I am new here,,, are you French? And you spend every summer in Paris? I used to live in Paris, I went to school there, and was on track to becoming a French citizen when my mother got sick and of course I came home. That negated the time spent! Suddenly, with covid, I am once again reminded how wonderful it is to have two passports! I was to leave for Belgium for a family celebration yesterday.. but found out that the Belgium had changed the American baselines.. I hadn’t left time for a day or two quarantine, so I am not going! oh well, so much for that and the stay with old friends in the South of France! Enjoy the end of your stay, and safe trip home!

      Ellyn, I am not FRENCH. BERNIE is. And yes, we do spend part of every summer in PARIS. I am so sorry about your trip. These are crazy times for sure.

    Ready for us to meet for a nice outdoor meal some place. Enjoy your final week. I feel as if I’ve traveled there again. I know it will be hard to leave.

      You’re most welcome. I know this post had more of a female appeal or at least that was Bernie’s opinion!

    Beautiful jewelry, though much more elaborate than I would ever wear. I will just admire it from afar. Considering the prices, thank goodness my tastes don’t run in that direction! So glad you had nice weather for your last day with Pierre and Laurie.

    In all the blog entries in general & this one specifically, I enjoy pictures of food, people, & flowers. This jewelry was a bonus! I’ve never spent extended time in Paris so thanks for bringing me along. Amy
