The Hall Sapphire and Diamond necklace would compliment my jeans and tank top style quite nicely, don't you think? A nice, casual, every day kind of bling, right?! :naughty:

Seriously though, GORGEOUS, so jealous you got to see those in person. Thanks for sharing pictures!

I'm not sure I could do any of those spectacular pieces justice - but I'd sure like to try! I'd love to wear that "Inquisition Necklace" for an evening!

I'm glad you're back, DF!

Yes I would. And DF you missed my birthday so I will gladly accept one of these lovely jewels as your belated birthday gift. I am not picky. Any of these pieces will do. Though I wouldn't mind receiving the Napoleon Diamond Necklace or the Hall Sapphire Diamond Necklace. Or perhaps both as it is a special birthday... :love: :cheeky:

Heck I will gladly accept and wear any of these pieces DF. Your choice. :lol:
Hmm that tiara wouldn't look too shabby on my head either... :naughty:

What woman wouldn't want to wear the turquoise tiara while mopping the kitchen floor?

Thanks for the pictures, I almost shorted my computer with all the drool.

Dancing Fire, I would wear any of the pieces posted with a big ole smile on my face! Getting me to take them off would be the hard part.

I told my daughter to take some pics while we were moving along with the flow of the crowd.

DF,
The bigger question is "why wouldn't I wear any of these"? Of course, I would. In a heartbeat!

Yes I would wear several of them. I have seen them in person and remember the visit quite well. I believe the hope diamond fluoresces red. I am a big fan of flur if you can liberate that stone I would wear it all the time.

Dancing Fire; I couldn't imagine standing that close to the ACTUAL Hope Diamond, I've read so much about it and seen so many docos that I am actually considering a trip to the US to check out the diamond on it's own. It must really be a sight to behold...

Any security anomalies that you noticed? :naughty:

Jks!!! I wouldn't even dare to risk the curse; I'm a fisherman and I am superstitious as it is, I won't let bananas on my boat let alone a cursed diamond!!!!!!! :lol:

Ahhh the one person distracts or keeps a look out.... while the other person takes the pics technique. :shifty:

I think your question should be which one would you choose to wear first, not would you wear any of these, DF :lol:
