Gawk


I came across this amazing belt a couple of weeks ago, and keep going back to gawk at it. Can you imagine wearing something so exquisite around your waist? Whilst I was searching for my very own intricate silverwork belt, I found many beautiful examples, however none more impressive than this. The seller doesn't have too much information about the belt, only that it is from the 1900's and features incredibly meticulous detail. It is far more expensive than the silver belt I ended up buying, at $2,269. These photos are really high quality, so click on them to see all the stunning details.



Also, a few weeks back I harped on about how much I love the Bally fall 2009 collection (here). Well, the gorgeous brass belt used throughtout the collection is now available direct from the Bally website. It's cheaper than I'd expected, but still pretty pricey at £270. I'm just glad I managed to find my own intricate silverwork belt first, otherwise I'd be very tempted by this beauty.

OH MY GOD!
The first belt is just a dream. I love filigrees myself and they are quite hard to find because it is an dying art in the continent....You only find in vintage jewelry nowadays.
