Diamonds, diamonds, real diamonds

Diamonds, diamonds, real diamonds. Here from the Fabergé: Imperial Jeweler to the Tsars show in So. Cal. This stunning tiara was made for Emperor Josephine. You know Fabergé for his beautiful, rich Easter eggs but there is so much more! This exhibition highlights the range of this artist’s vision shows and shows lots of jeweled things – from doorbells to clocks.
One of more exquisite places I visited on my summer holidays. More often, we preferred the great outdoors; hiking in the Sierra Nevada, swimming at Laguna Beach and just relaxing at my parents home in Fullerton.

How were your summer holidays? So glad that the sun has appeared here too!
