Eric- Tell us about this particular piece. Where did you photograph it? When and where was it made? It looks like it could be ancient in origin. Looks similar to some Roman and Phoenician jewelry I saw at a museum exhibition not too long ago. ________________________________ From: nikonf4-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:nikonf4-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Eric Welch Sent: Wednesday, November 03, 2010 10:23 PM To: nikonf4@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [nikonf4] Re: Graining Probably not Costco, either. :-) They do have great diamonds I'm told.

This photos is a bracelet that has the most amazing graining possible.Each dot is an individual piece of gold, individually attached by the goldsmith to the bracelet.
