This is the final aquamarine and diamond pendant I settled on for Angie. It’s fantastic, too. Diamonds, aquamarines, and pearls in a platinum setting. Jewels were a big status item in the Gilded Age (1870 – 1915). Some wealthy women would go to balls literally dripping in diamonds and other precious gems. One husband hired a private detective to follow his wife all night for fear of robbery!
This is the fun part of research for a novel.
