I have subscribed to 1stDibs some years ago to use for comps for vintage jewelry clients bring me.
I thought this collection of Objets d'Art and Vertu was delightful.
Hope you do too. :D

Some perfect gift ideas for those who are.....a bit more difficult to please.

Who here wouldn't love love to lounge in a rose quartz bath tub?

That is neat! Though to be honest the pictures do not actually look much like rose quartz. I wonder...

Fair enough, Stephen. That's kinda true....
I guess I'll settle for a couple of Faberge eggs. :wink:

It looks like some sort of marble to me. I have had large bathtubs carved out of a single piece of granite for houses I have built. I try to stay away from marbles because so many soaps a beauty products are acidic that they often ruin marble finishes.
