Saturday was a busy day in London. I went to The V&A to look at The William and Judith Bollinger Jewellery Gallery. Sadly because of security I was unable to take pictures. Its a stunning display (much better than the turnstile gallery days).
All the details of the display can be found here http://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/fashion/features/jewellery/index.html

I also had a look around Accessorize. Costume jewellery is great for ever changing trend. £6.00 a pair of earrings, they are are not precious. Above are some earrings that caught my eye at The V&A and at Accessorize.
