29th August – Disitnctive

This was my grand mother's. It is amethyst. If you look carefully, you may see written on the silk in the lid the jewllers address 'Cairo'.

She owned what was the largest hotel in Cairo in the 1920s. It was called 'Warwick House'. One day I must research it.

  2. It must feel like royalty to wear a piece like this. Those stone look like real jewels. 🙂
