VINTAGE JEWELLERY OLYMPIA INTERNATIONAL ART&ANTIQUES FAIR LONDON
I visited Olympia International Art & Antiques Fair in London and selected favourite vintage pieces from Anthea A G Antiques, John Joseph and van Kranendonk Duffels collections. This year 170 of the world’s finest specialist dealers were showcased at the Olympia Exhibition Centre.
The beauty of trying the jewels at Olympia is enhanced by the daylight flowing in from the ornate barrel-vaulted roof. Each piece of antique jewellery shows it’s true colour when viewed in natural light. Natural daylight is perfect for photographing jewellery, an element I would use all the time if it were possible!
