There is no location in Las Vegas more perfectly suited to the show it hosts than the Paris Hotel partnership with the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show!
From the vintage feel of the decor to the opulence of their stunning chandeliers this place just feels like you are taking a step back in time.
I would love to share some of the highlights for me! ...for those wanting a little more there is a photo album on The Daily Jewel page on Facebook that has all the photos I took... https://www.facebook.com/dailyjewel
JODEN WORLD RESOURCES
Joden World Resources has what is believed to be the largest and rarest collection of the work of Carlo Giuliano (1831-1895).
The bracelet itself is a fully hinged bangle, as we would call it. It is in 18 karat yellow gold gem set with square sapphires, rubies and trimmed in diamonds which is typical of the time period. Carlo Giuliano is considered among experts to be the master of all jewelers who ever lived. Notably a personal friend and often private jeweler to Queen Victoria.
