Since I don't have a card to share, I scanned some pictures of the jewels we saw in the Natural History Museum (and no, I won't put all of them on one post!). I took pictures, but not a single one was fit to save. I had purchased a pack of postcards & I'm so glad I did. These jewels were awesome in the cases, but I had a hard time imagining someone actually being brave enough to step outside wearing these rocks. Guess times were different then. One of the names on the gems, gave me a bit of a smile. I'll let you guess which.
|Mackay Emerald Necklace - 168 carats - Designed by Cartier-1931 as a wedding gift in 1931 by Clarence Mackay to his wife|

Thanks for joining me this afternoon. Have a blessed evening, and come again soon. Hugs
