    That Balmain jacket took my breath away! So timeless, chic and wearable! Richards just got in an Loro Piano throw, just like the Calypso faux. Have the feeling there may be a few zero’s difference! Lovely post, as usual.

    Happy, Happy Holidays!

    Good evening and Happy Holidays!
    I bought your beautiful dome ring a few years ago and I love it. It’s such a small world as I’ve found your blog and love it. I also live in the same area so I especially enjoy the local posts.

    • quintessence says:

      Hi Kim – small world indeed! So glad you found me here! And so glad you’re loving your beautiful ring!! Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday!
