I recently read a gorgeous book detailing the history of the Virginia MFA’s Mellon collection of Schlumberger pieces- beautiful pictures, original sketches and lots of historical discussion 2E217663-9B0E-4735-AFF9-ED0BDD1AF877.jpeg

Any good bling reads lately?

@FL_runner did you happen to catch the exhibit at the St. Pete MFA Two years ago? I’m just asking since it looks like you might be a fellow Floridian. My daughter and I went on her b-day in 2019 and it was incredible. I bet Bunny Melon was a pro at the air-kiss since most of the Schlumberger pieces looked like they would catch onto other peoples clothes like barbed wire if you got too close.

Years ago I bought a bling book that now might qualify as bling itself.

It is the long out of print 742 pg tome of Fancy Colored Diamonds.
IIRC I paid way less than $100.

Wowza! That’s awesome! A twofer! :))

I’m actually from Virginia and moved here about a year and a half ago :) so I was familiar with exhibit but did not see it down here.

These are mine. The Elizabeth Taylor book is falling apart from so much use
