If you have a flair for the glamour of old Hollywood and over-the-top jewelry, you’re in luck.
A new exhibit opened Friday at the Gemological Institute of America campus in Carlsbad, California titled “More is More.”
The show features pieces put together by famed Hollywood set and costume designer Tony Duquette and his partner Hutton Wilkinson.
To give you an idea of what you can expect at the show, Wilkinson was once quoted as saying, “If it’s not fabulous, it’s meaningless.”
“This is bling before bling with a capital B. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It’s not gaudy, unless you don’t own it,” GIA instructor Larry Larson said.
The exhibit runs through March 2014.
