Fellow blogger and jewelry historian Lori Ettlinger Gross just wrote an article called “The Bling Factor: ‘American Woman’ at the Met” for the T Magazine Blog (The New York Times Style Magazine blog). Lori and I attended the press preview at the Costume Institute together and I am always happy to hear (or in this case read) her thoughts on jewelry- as she is so incredibly knowledgeable. Please see her article and read her blog, Jewelhistory.com
ps…the images that accompany the article are fabulous!!!
