Thanks for the great website.  It's so nice of people to share.  I give away some free golf tips on my site.  I think it's great when people do a service for others on the internet.

Keep up the good work!

Browsing thru your website made me change my mind. I was very firm in my opinion but than i found out that there is a different point of view. It's amazing how one can see things different.

Aigrette headpiece with a diamond starburst in 14K, circa 1915.  It is folded flat in this picture.  The bottom of the tube holding the starburst allows the gold band to rotate.  Came in its original box.  Very rare.

Headpiece unfolded.  Aigrette feathers are a deep mahogany color, possibly dyed as egrets are white.  

FYI, the fashionable ladies almost caused the egret to go extinct.  Aigrette plumes only occur during mating season and huge numbers of egrets were killed for their feathers.  ;-(
