Deco Diamonds at the V & A

When I studied in England, the permanent fashion collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum was a constant source of inspiration. So of course upon arriving in London on Wednesday, the V & A was the first stop(after grabbing a thick and rich hot chocolate from apostrophe in St.Christophers Square…). When I got there I was devastated to find that the collection closed 2 DAYS prior for renovations, reopening in the spring of 2012. There was an upside, I figured while I was there I would check out the vintage jewelery archive. Much to my delight, it’s just as amazing as the apparel collection. They had an amazing selection of vintage art deco inspired Cartier Brooches(pictured left). The exhibit may inspire a little jewelry shopping, maybe starting with the deco inspired House of Harlow Earings(pictured right) $57 on shopbop.com
