Well he  might be the only one dressed?
He might be buried up to his neck in sand?
Tell him what?
He is the only one wearing sunglasses.
I wonít sleep now,,,
Come on -  before Skoosh sends one of his naughty Caledonian posts.
 Ah - Is he the only one wearing a sporran?
Errrr, mmmm, no canít fathom it.

why do Blind people wear Sunglasses ?
It`s a bit like the Irishman who bought a pool Table, he sent it back after 4 days, the water kept coming up through the pockets....

This is s serious answer,Some blindness is also accompanied by painful eye
conditions  and glaring sunlight can be a nuisance to partially sighted people.
The dark glasses are also an instant signal to sighted people that someone is blind or partially sighted.
At the moment the bright sunshine means when I go outside I am totally unable to see for a good while when back inside.
Glaucoma,cataracts forming and drops for dry eye  all exacerbate the problem,or the other way round.
I must use sunglasses as it is quite dangerous especially when I have been boozing!!!
Cheerio ,Viktoria.

I was just having a think about the name on the tiara. I do not know how obvious the word is, but personally I would not want to walk around with my surname on my head (nor - to make Viktoria happy - with a plant from the Allium family).
However I could see a jeweller making such a piece for training or demonstration purposes ....

I agree and too thought it might have been an advertisement.
It is quite intriguing and very kind of James to do ,this on anotherís behalf.

If I can help then I will, but if I cant I turn to guys on here. but then doesn't everyone want to help someone.......I remember when I first started, people were very helpful, no idiots at all... but I guess with this I need a lot more info in order for the help... a ToyTown Jeweller is offering £2000 + for the ring.. we are not that interested in the money at the moment, we came on this site, because people have found & helped with information on so many occasions If its worth that amount in a back street Jewellers in Grantham then maybe it has some provenance  elsewhere.... we would really love to find its history.....

Thanks guys

John

Have you had the gold/silver marks identified yet? That should confirm time/place and maybe the maker.
