Shop in Style: Ahem, Vintage, Ahem

This is so not in my cards right now, and even if the tax refund check weren't already pledged to practical things, I'm pretty sure I couldn't convince H I need yet another bauble, but just in case any of you are in the market for something stunning and sparkly...

What: Chas Schwartz & Son Estate Sale

Where: Mazza Gallerie, 5300 Wisconsin Ave NW (though this Saturday) and Willard Hotel (11-17 May)

When: It started already - oops! - through 17 May - by store hours or, if you're really serious about purchase, by appointment.

Why: It might be trite, but it's true - diamonds are a girl's best friend. Especially if they're in a one-of-a-kind vintage setting.

Before you go, check out the legendary Washingtonian jewler's history and vintage periods tutorial. The site needs pics (c'mon, this is 2008 - a girl needs something she can print out and leave lying around the house - or take with her to the store so she can be sure she's making her own investment on the right piece), but you can be certain that their collections are worth a dignified visit.
