Call me bond, Gem Bond. International Woman of Jewelry Mystery.

It’s two days from Independence day and I am posing in our nations capital as a British spy. What can I say? I couldn’t help it, this dress exudes British spy vibes. Now either I belong in the next Austin Powers sequel or I am the female James Bond. Between the two I am going with Bond, regardless of the clearly 1960s Mod dress. Also “Spy Who Shagged Me” vs “Diamonds are Forever”, I think its clear where I really belong.The jewelry in this outfit elevates this look to one that exudes sophistication and grace, which makes Bond the clear winner!

The Necklace is an old Victorian necklace with lovely etched motifs. The gold onyx rings range in dates from the 1920s to 1970s. I thought it would be interesting to show you how the same stone is set very differently depending on the decade. The flower ring is from the 1950s, The abstract 3d ring is from the 1920s and the classic long black ring is from the 1970s. The gold earrings are modern but have a very deco cut to them.

    I loved the necklace and rings, and more, the dress is so cute! You are right, a British spy, it is! I felt something like “swinging London” vibe! You look beautiful and I like the style of the whole outfit!
