- Program Description
Sim Sneider of Boston is George Michael’s guest on Antiques. He brings with him to the program beautiful examples of European, British, Mediterranean and oriental jewelry as well as reproductions of a dozen of the most famous diamonds in the world. Among the items shown on the program are a very intricate and beautiful diamond necklace, a necklace of seed pearls and oriental sapphires, a magnificent bracelet of gold, diamonds and mine-cut bohemian garnets and several delicately pained and decorated miniatures. A sculptured cameo gives rise to a discussion of the difference between modern and antique cameos, and how to tell the difference between them. There are also several “special order” pieces, with initials or special family meaning, and a Mediterranean card case of gold filagree. A gold and lapis lazuli rope necklace with tassels made over a century ago is still very much in vogue today.
