Fine Jewels Offered by Houston Jewelers - Beautiful and Different

My infatuation with fine jewels is somewhat similar to my deep interest in French châteaux or Italian Palazzi. The fact that I’m unable to buy them in no way diminishes my desire to closely inspect, and in most cases, try to learn about their design and materials. In my opinion it's incredibly exciting to come across exquisitely crafted, achingly beautiful jewels. Hitching my love of jewelry design to the Santa season, I decided it would be fun to create a post showing readers memorable jewels being sold by establishments located in Houston. The ones I chose are gorgeous, I believe, yet different.

A Few Words About "Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits from Holbein to Warhol" from the Natural Portrait Gallery, London" at MFAH

Hans Holbein the Younger, Portrait of Henry VIII,
1540, oil on wood, Palazzo Barberini, Rome

"..One easily imagines Henry glittering in the torch light at Whitehall Palace..." (I was invited to preview the exhibition “Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits from Holbein to Warhol,” from the National Portrait Gallery, London, at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Here is fun background to some of the show's portraits.)
