May is a month of mayhem for me this year, between the upcoming wedding and all the exciting jewelry events before and after the big day. Thank you for understanding as I try to juggle everything at once.
Jewelry, along with the spring flowers, is out in colorful force, and this week’s Estate Jewelry Round Up strives to show it. Fun, playful wares from the 1960s and 1970s – very au courant right now – are mixed with a few serious pieces, forming a diverse group of jewels great for warm weather festivities. What’s more, any of these would also make for a fabulous gift for Mother’s Day!
