In order to watch but also to collect them especially antique jewelry from the 18th and 19th centuries. This out of hand hobby which has grown into a passion. When I was fourteen years old I got a silver watch chain birthday present from an aunt to wear as bracelet. That was my first introduction to antique jewelry. I posted it already on CW. I enjoy wherever possible to find affordable antique jewelry and could build in this way a decent collection. Since I am retired for several years I'm able to spend time in searching, viewing and publishing and like to share and show my collection to fellow collectors. Furthermore I like to share my knowledge of antique jewelry with others and also learn from the knowledge and experience collectors. (Read more)

  31. jscotto363 what a very quick response. Thanks for your love and compliment. I like the finesse of the painting in combination with the colors. You too?
  32. Baylou thanks for your nice comment. And yes I suppose this is also lightweight plastic. The weight of this brooch is 11.5 gr. So you can compare the weight with your brooch.
  33. Thanks for your love, comment and help Kyra, I hope to buy this last important book in due course.
