I love this fun photo.
I just read an article that said on the show Bewitched, the characters wore their own clothes and accessories. It said that Agnes Morehead frequently wore this brooch featuring 8.5 cts. of mine cut diamonds, which she bequeathed to Elizabeth Montgomery upon her death in 1974.
But is this real coral? Maybe.

And of course, a fabulous coral necklace on the most awesome Vivian Leigh.
There is a lot of great jewelry featured in Gone With the Wind. Scarlett's cameo brooch in the final scene is breathtaking.

In case you're unfamiliar with Gone With the Wind, here's the cameo:

I LOVE this movie!!! A few years ago, another version of Vivian's coral Necklace was for sale, which apparently came from a studio auction lot, or something like that..... It was exactly the same except that instead of chains between the coral clusters, there were coral beads. That sold Immediately lol.

GWTW is my absolute favorite movie! I first read the book when I was 12, and saw the movie shortly thereafter. And I have seen it many times since. A masterpiece!

OMG GWTW is one of my favorite books ever! Also loved the movie.
63 chapters and over 1000 pages of perfection IMO that somehow fly by. Not a dull line in the book. Romance, history, drama, comedy of manners. Scarlett O'hara is a one of a kind creation. And the love story between Scarlett and Rhett, well frankly my dears, I *do* give a damn.:cheeky:
Yanno I think it't time to reread this masterpiece.:appl:
"After all, tomorrow is another day".8)

Check out that coral beauty in the first scene.:love:


One of my favorite lines in the book/movie is when Rhett says to Scarlett:
"You need kissing badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how."

Swoon what a story. :kiss2:

Haha,,I like when Rhett says "A cat is a better mother than you!"
One of my favorite scenes is when Scarlett shoots the Yankee when he takes her mothers "earbobs".

What about this little nugget that women of today still haven’t figured out:
From Mammy no less:
“What gentlemen says and what they thinks is two different things. And I ain't noticed Mr. Ashley asking fer to marry you.” :twisted2:
And then....
“Why does a girl have to be so silly to catch a husband?” :lol:

Mr. Vesper bought me this mourning brooch. It is made from black and pink coral with pearls.

So beautiful! I love how strongly organic the black coral is. It contrasts so well with the delicate gold and pearls. Reminds me of a vine climbing on a tree trunk. Like honoring the life that was, while new life grows. What a lovely gift,Vesper.

That is exactly how I took it. It has more "hope" than other mourning jewelry. If that is at all logical.

Makes perfect sense to me. There is definitely more hope and life, emphasized by the dark. We can’t have light without darkness as a contrast . It is in the relationship between the two that make the hope so strong in your piece.

I have been eyeing this angelskin ring on Etsy (AdinaStone) for a long time but just haven’t given in yet. The shop also has the same ring set with an reddish coral, matching earrings, pendant, the lot.

I found this Regency bandeau tiara, C 1835. I am seriously considering it for myself to wear when I am home alone.
