Emerald and Diamond Necklace.
The ladies of Palm Beach use such necklaces regularly for the
parties, balls, and charity events in Palm Beach. You can't wear
the same one every time, so they come to the show each year to
obtain a new color or new style. Business is brisk.

Johannes von Hove. "The Old Port." Dutch 17th century.
The Lawrence Steigrad Gallery is one of my favorites, specializing in Dutch painting of
the 17th - 19th centuries. He has a beautiful display, dark with spotlights, and hires a
special English craftsman to make his frames in 17th century style. An actual 17th
century frame today would probably be worth more than the painting. Museums are
replacing the gaudy gold 19th frames they had been using and returning to the originals.
This is a detail of the above painting.
Frederick Kruseman. "Winter Scene." Dutch. 18th century.
Detail of above picture.
Gaspar van der Hoecke. "Bouquet of Flowers." 1647The Dutch developed many new varieties of flowers, and a new
tulip color might sell for more than $1 million. So these paintings are
depictions of the wealth a man had and what he could afford.

they oxidized to look like ancient Roman glass vessels found in the ground, where
natural oxides had colored them over centuries.
