Girl with a Pearl Earring

Mikimoto Pearl Legacy earringsWhen one hasn't got cable, one tends to view lots of PBS and C-Span. If I've managed to learn anything from Antiques Roadshow, it's that pearl jewelry simply does not lose its value. I've also learned, thanks to a lovely pearl documentary, that creating altogether round (cultured) pearls was no easy feat, perfected by Mikimoto-san of Japan. A by-product from the simple sea-mollusk, the deep-sea lovely has been coveted by royals for centuries. Mr. Mikimoto made them available to the masses with his ingenious techniques, fashion dignitaries like Coco Chanel made them en vogue. Pearl madness has led me to the Legacy Earrings, a recreation from the Mikimoto archives of the 1920s and 1930s created from Akoya Cultured Pearls and Diamonds, set in 18K White Gold. Lovey!

between Griet and Vermeer ,only it is a teenager love for Griet
but Vermeer ,I do not know how he could love her as yet 6 children .
