“Happiness is a by-product of an effort to make someone else happy.”
I am going to make you very happy with these gorgeous vintage daisy clip-on earrings.
Some people clean their pearls in salt water.
I like to swipe mine with a clean cloth lightly dipped in olive oil.
Occasionally, I roll my pearls over my forehead.
My make-up free forehead. Sounds bizarre. Works a treat.
The natural oils in skin bring out the lustre of the pearls.
Which is why pearls should be worn. They improve each time you wear them.
Pearl earrings widen your smile, and actually make your teeth look whiter.
What’s not to like?

We’re talking Michael Monet here, not Claude.
Although there is something quite impressionistic about the finish and texture of these lovely earrings:
Around the time that Claude Monet was putting the finishing touches to his water lillies at Giverny, Michael Monet was launching his costume jewellery business with just $4 to his name.
You can be part of the Monet narrative with these fab drop earrings. They are wonderful quality, and in excellent condition, signed, and perfect for the costume jewellery collector.
Signed vintage clip-ons, superb quality, stylish design, rare jewels.
Une Ligne Paris launched by Jean-Louis Niedermaier in 1979, very collectable.
Go on, treat yourself!
