This is the prettiest necklace I own . . . it dazzles me. To me, it is one of a kind. But one visit to my great local antique shop, or a few clicks around Georgian Jewelry or Shihtzuwest, and I realize that there are thousands of necklaces, rings, brooches, etc. like mine (and better) out in the world.
This realization actually comforts me. Greatly. I am just happy to own a very, very, very tiny piece of the vintage-jewelry pie.
