I just received my catalog from The Metropolitan Museum of Art Store and am smitten with these three pairs of antique-y earrings. I became a member of the museum when I lived in Manhattan last year and it was deadly—not only is the art collection unparalleled, but the gift shop is an art lover’s Eden. The turquoise and pearl “forget-me-not” sets are based on a design by Peter Carl Fabergé that was popular in 19th century Russia. The last pair of daisies is also based on a Fabergé design, drawn from an individual flower in his famed Basket of Wild Flowers Egg. How I adore history…especially when combined with costume jewelry.
