On Estate Jewelry: Dead Cromwell Edition

Always fascinating information, besides the shiny pretty things! The Cromwell burial plaque reminded me, just the other day I happened to see pictures of a mourning ring for Charles I, that reminded me of this series: http://www.laurapreshong.com/blog/100-favorite-rings-in-100-days-2.html

--and lo! Today, a new installment! Signs and portents, I declare.

I especially loved the beetle brooch--and your speculation about a beetle duel--and the Lion in Winter ring!

Ah, so lovely! (Lilies of the valley are one of my very favorite flowers, but I can just hear my boyfriend's laughter at the price estimates if I show him that lovely necklace and make pointed reference to my birthday.)
