    1. We are so happy that you enjoy the pieces. Thank you! It was a difficult process to have the “sapphire created” by a glass artist, Kathleen Mitchell. She does beautiful art glass and she worked hard with us to achieve the look we now have. We lost count on how many samples she made for the project. She never gave up and neither did we.

    1. Yes, we were commissioned to re-create the jewelry owned by Carole Lombard while she wore this dress in the film classic. “My Man Godfrey

      These dresses are part of the new Costume Collection exhibit now at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science.
