Post Pretty Jewelry
I found some lovely jewelry that reminds me of Marie Antoinette!

http://www.boutiquesdemusees.fr/en/shop ... FzYw%3D%3D

If any of you would like more links I would be more than happy to share more links! :)

This may sound odd, however I feel like by listing this link I feel like a sleazy car salesman wearing a bad suit, weird smelling after shave and an impressively horrible toupee, in other words, I feel like I am trying to exploit Marie Antoinette, is that normal? I don't quite think it is. :oops: :?

They're beautiful. I especially like the combination of blue and gold, but the strass is a bit too much. It doesn't feel like Antoinette if it's over the top, she was more elegant when it comes to jewelry, I believe.

Perhaps she was more extravagant with jewelry when she was younger, then she was more elegant as she matured. I pictured a young Marie Antoinette wearing those earrings.

Yes, I think you might be right. She matured in many ways when she became a mother.

This applies to most mothers and fathers who are involved with the child's or childrens' life, I believe once you have children there is less focus on yourself and more attention and energy towards your child/children.

Yes, but there are many queens - and other women - from that time who liked expensive and over the top jewelry even though they had children.

True. Touché. You do have a point. Although at some point in general I suppose you tend to be less extravagant.

Dear Hellou_Librorum,

No, you are certainly not like a sleazy used car salesman just because you wanted to share something that you thought was pretty or interesting! On a side note, I thought you were Australian, but I see by your spelling that you are American. Is this correct? Anyway, have a great day and thanks for sharing.

Sincerely,
Ray
