Day 89

The girl with the pearl earring...

 Antique Pearl and diamond earings

Antique Pearl and diamond earings

My mother was generous to a fault.  One of the things that I am thinking about as I get ready to board the plane, is that I am sure that my mom would want to give my brother's fiance, a piece of jewelry to wear to their wedding.  The only thing that is driving me crazy, is that I have no idea what to give her, I have never seen her wear much jewelry, and so I will just have to go with my gut.  She is very elegant, beautiful, and un-fussy, and yet I feel like she might appreciate the artisanship of these 100 year old pearl and diamond earrings, instead of something more modern, like a bracelet.  This is where I could really use my mom's advice.  Any one who has any thoughts I would love to hear them.  I will be offline from this afternoon until Monday, but if anyone reads this before I get on the plane at 3:30, please feel free to send any ideas my way.  xoxoxo
