Are diamonds really a girl's best friend?

You decide! I've just put up a new weekly poll on the right hand side, you may have to scroll down to get to it. The question is, "Which do you prefer in, pearls, or something more colorful(i.e. emeralds)?" I'm interested to know whether diamonds really do trump all other jewels. So if you have a moment, please feel free to answer the new poll!

**The necklace design shown at left has a rather notorious history. Find out at Marie Antoinette Online.

Pom Pom Interiors

I'm back for the new year! I hope everyone has had a good 2008 so far! Awhile back I discovered the store Pom Pom Interiors and meant to do a blog post about it, so here it is. Located in Los Angeles (there are 2 locations there), Pom Pom Interiors is really a dream for those who love to shop for the home. More specifically, those who love to mix elegance, some shabby chic, and a touch of European style to their decorating. They offer vintage furniture, home accessories, lighting, and even something for the garden. If you are looking for something unique to add to your space, this is the place to go! My personal favorite are the gorgeous chandeliers from Europe--so very Marie Antoinette! If you're in the LA area, I'd suggest you check them out.
