A royal shade of purple in the Garden of Adin

Impressive estate amethyst diamond brooch



ANTWERP, July 26 (Reuters) – In medieval Europe, purple was worn by kings as blue dyes were rare and expensive and only the most wealthy or the aristocracy could afford to wear them. Therefore it is not unexpected that Adin's gardeners found blooming evidence of the origin of this color in the Garden of Adin. Chief-research Elkan Wijnberg said in an exclusive interview with The Heavenly Inquirer that he never had seen an amethyst in such ethereal purple before.

Superb 18th Century cameo

Superb French Baroque cameo in golden mounting. A true collectors item!




Two weeks ago we were lucky being offered an impressive private collection of antique jewelry. The person who brought it to us inherited it from his parents, antique jewelry dealers who retired some 30 years ago, and he wanted to find a good home for it. We felt honoured that he came to us and were amazed by the quality of this collection. One could see the love these people had for antique jewelry.

Among the many high quality pieces we got was one truly amazing cameo. It took us many hours to determine where the cameo came from and what it depicted and the result is amazing. If you want to find out about this cameo just click the picture.

End to plague in The Garden of Adin

Sparkling spider in Art Deco tie pin with sugar loaf cabochon cut sapphire


ANTWERP, July 12 (Reuters) – Last week's mosquito plague that ascended over the Garden-of-Adin turned out to be a heavenly gift for the local spiders. Independent observers told us that they had never seen spiders as well-fed and healthy as at Adin.

Swarmings above The Garden of Adin

Victorian golden stickpin in the form of a diamond and ruby mosquito



ANTWERP, July 05 (Reuters) – In the beginning of the evening and morning of the fourth day of this week Adin's observer yelled: “Behold! There is a swarming of living creatures across the expanse of the heavens above the Garden-of-Adin!” And Adin's helpmate brought it to man to see what he would call it. And the man called it “stickpin”, that was its name. And we saw all Adin found, and behold it was very good.

(We believe that any resemblance with similar situations in history is purely coincidental.)
