Once every two years, in September, Paris holds an International antique exhibition. The exhibition is organized by the Syndicate National des Antiquaires and takes place in the beautiful building of the Grand Palais. The glass roof is a marvellous showcase for the exhibits and the events of this unique art fair. Art dealers of the leading art houses worldwide participate and present art objects from various periods.
Chaumet's "Aigrette" white gold diadem,
with a white Ethiopian 40-carat opal cabochon,
250 diamonds, 34 blue tourmalines and 22 violet tanzanites.
I admit I got carried away with Harry Winston's showcase even before the sales person asked me for my name and then smoothly announced that the necklace I was admiring had my name written all over it. "The day I win an Oscar and need to waltz down the red carpet infront of the Kodak theatre I'll be back!"
Harry Winston's "Wave" necklace
with 534 brilliant-cut diamonds
and a single 60.14 carat pear-cut diamond
in a platinum setting.
However, the show was utterly and completly stolen by a very unexpected guest.
