diamonds and rewinding era

diamonds Pictures, Images and Photos
I am sure you are all getting sick of my blog posts with just outfits. So i decided to talk about a girl's best!

i'm a diamond Pictures, Images and Photos
Diamonds were first worn by a french woman in 1430. She founded the fashion of wearing them. Agnes Sorel was the name of the Frenchwoman. Diamond is the hardest substance known to man. Also, a diamond's 'fire' or glow is a result of the way the substance reflects light within itself off of its many surfaces. The light is in turn reflected back to the eye creating a glow.
I'm a huge history buff. I love history, and reading about it. Usually I stick to things like wars, the women's movement but i thought fashion would be a bit more fun. Who doesn't like a nice diamond? Honestly, I am kind of a pearl girl ;]. Whats your favorite stone or piece of jewelry? I love earrings! :]

i sometimes swear i was meant for a different era. as i was wearing todays dress i felt like i was on a trip back to the 60s. i loved it though. it was sooooo hot today. hence why my hair is up again.
