I need a chair

I need a chair to sit in while I look at these earrings. Can you believe they are from the 1870s? That is so much earlier than I would have supposed. Just imagine this Victorian jeweler saying to his colleague on the Friday walk home, "This next week I fancy I'll take a break from mourning jewelry and fashion some whimsical bird nest earrings with bitty eggs in them." Fantastic!

LOVE there! I totally would not have believed these were so old! They look so "current". :)

Oh my golly gosh. They're far too amazing. And yes, what a conversation... A sentence not often muttered I imagine.
