My newest love is this original vintage 1960s sapphire and diamond cocktail ring! it’s set with 2.50 carats of pear-shaped sapphires and 1.25 carats of round brilliant cut diamonds! Isn’t it spectacular???
She called to me from the shop window in Hatton Garden, “take me home or regret it forever.”
I tried to walk away—but before I got to the end of the block, I’d taken a U-turn and was swiping my debit card! I had lunch at a little luncheonette while she was being resized—an hour later, this amazing 1960s sapphire and diamond cocktail ring had taken up residence on my right hand… where she belongs ;-)
I took her home and named her “Little Edie.” Little Edie because she’s eccentric and glamorous, just like the daughter Edith Beale from Grey Gardens.
I like to imagine Little Edie back in the Swinging Sixties on the finger of a glamorous woman who wore mini skirts, big sunglasses, and cat’s eye eyeliner. She threw fabulous cocktail parties in her mod-decorated London townhouse, and Little Edie was her favorite cocktail ring!
I just love imagining Little Edie’s past life…
