-Harlequin Romantic--The Eliza Afternoon Collar-
A casual pleasure, in a life lived in the lap of luxury.
As I have mentioned in the past, the movie the "Duchess"
has been very impacting on my jewelry out put as of late.
When I first saw the movie in theaters what stood out in the costumes above all else was the jewelry.
After watching the movie some weeks ago i was immediately swept up in the splendor of her jeweled ensembles once more.
I had to put my own spin on the Duchess of Devonshire's jewelry, and thus begins my barrage of one piece of georgian jewelry after the next. I hope you all enjoy. And p.s. its getting cold out there, our shirt collars have moved up, so must our jewels
This collar was inspired by her love child, Eliza, with political and future Prime Minister Charles Grey.
The cab was aptly named "girl with a bird". A beautiful, loving child on the necklace engaged by a fleeting encounter with such a free, yet willing creature speaks volumes to the bitter sweet story between Georgiana and Charles.
