this week in the store, capi's friend tara compton is having a trunk show of her fine & estate jewelry. of the many incredible pieces, standouts include a one of a kind yossi harari 24 karat gold & diamond bracelet, a 19th century 18 karat gold ring with hand carved green, brown, and white chalcedony, and a unique gucci bracelet with a carved horn pendant. watching tara set up shop today was like witnessing a fabulous magician brandish endless wonders from a hat. just when I thought she had placed the last exquisite cocktail ring on its stand, another case of rings would emerge. . .
Tara has also generously donated a necklace to the critter ball for the charlottesville-albemarle SPCA. She will be set up at Scarpa until Saturday; stop by before then!
