    Thanks, I would love to wear it but not right now. I do have some holiday party''s but it would not be the right piece. I would love to wear it to a wedding or charity event. It does take my breath away and my sweet hubby loves it so much!

    Skippy, that piece is breathtaking, intricate and divine[​IMG]

    What a special family piece to pass down. Enjoy. (is it too big to have a chain added, to wear as a special necklace sometimes?)

    And Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!

    LOL, typo, I meant "Older," sorry.[​IMG] Hubby said he thinks it was a freudian slip (me wanting to be younger).[​IMG]


    Thank you for your sweeeeet compliments and birthday wishes.[​IMG] I will come back later and thank each of you sweetie! You all are the best group of friends!
