    Aww, thank you so much @diamondseeker2006! I will try doing that later for you. I might not have all my favorites here (some at the beach) but will attempt a family earring photo of my NYC favorites for you.

    Thank you @Madam Bijoux, I agree. Nothing can outweigh the kitties star power. [​IMG]

    So clearly I am procrastinating this morning. I do not feel like accomplishing what I need to accomplish and in that respect PS can be quite the time suck. For good and for bad. LOL. So I did a quick photo shoot and I have to thank you @diamondseeker2006 because in doing this I was also able to reorganize the earring arrangement in my safes and it is more logically organized. Let's see how long that will last haha.

    So not all my favorites but many of them. I couldn't get them all in one photo so I did them by groups.
    First group consists of my hoops and huggies and studs.



    Just the hoops/huggies


    Second group consist of my dangles



    And last group is a few of my gemstone earrings.



    Some individual pics

    peardanglesagain.png


    and finally because the thread is about the OMC dangles



    Thanks for looking.:halo:

    Very pretty and unique! I love the black enameling on them. You have quite a collection. I think I love them all.

    This is the ideal pair of antique earrings - gorgeous chunky-faceted and large diamonds, set in a way that could be perfect when worn with jeans and a tee as well as a formal gown. And I love the intricacy of the setting! Thank you so much for sharing this treasure!!

    I can't see the enamel, are they inside the buttercups? I love your whole collection by the way!! :appl:

    Does the place you bought them from specialize in antique jewelry? Did you see them in person or online?

    Thank you @luv2sparkle!

    Thanks @KristyDarling!

    Thanks very much @Weecam!

    Thank you @SandyinAnaheim! I saw them in person a little over a month ago at my favorite antique jewelry shop. It's called Park Place in Lambertville and the ladies who run the store are wonderful. They have the most beautiful jewelry too. Antique, vintage name brand, unique pieces. Of course it varies with when you visit them as their collection is always changing.

    Let me try getting a clearer photo of the black enamel for you.

    Screen Shot 2019-05-15 at 3.03.19 PM.png
    Do you see the design on the periphery/edges of the setting/mount? I wish I could explain it better or wish I knew how to draw/edit my photos so I could point it out to you. I am sure someone else can help explain it much more clearly than I am explaining it. Sorry, maybe this video will help show it more clearly.

    Wow, I haven’t seen a setting quite like that before! They’re obviously well-made (and they look made for you!).

    Thank you @JPie! They definitely embody my aesthetic.

    Thank you @EllenS1! One of my kitties is not in the photo. Bobby. He is camera shy but here is one of my favorite photos of him. For you.

    he looks like Mog from the kid's books when i was at primary school
    one of the best things about cats is they really know how to appreate the finer prettier things in life plus they don't slobber all over everything
