Thoughts on jewelry, accessories and whatever else takes my fancy

Jewel of the day: Castellani EY Brooch

There are a couple of things about this listing that surprise me. The fact that something this expensive is on Etsy. The fact that a tiny piece of personalized Castellani jewelry will sell for nearly USD$28,000. Or the fact that the brooch bears my initials. Really – what are the odds?

Castellani was a renowned goldsmith at the end of the 19th century. His works featured micro mosaics and a Greek motif. Though simple, this is an exquisitely worked piece.

It sells for USD$27,500 from Adin Antique Jewelry.
