“Marie, Thank you so much. The nephrite egg is stunning, I have never seen before the way the ring is connected to the egg, most interesting, and a lovely warm color of gold. The deep red one is equally bewitching, and the little textured silver one won my heart immediately, having seen an identical one on a chain of eggs in my book “Decorative Art of Russia” by Maria Bowater. They were all wrapped beautifully as usual, and will stay in their black pouches until such time as I can find a wonderful chain to put them on. Many thanks again, and I look forward to our next opportunity to communicate.”
