Jewels Glitter at the Slot Zeist!

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>From the 27-29 November 2009, the 17th C Zeist Castle near Utrecht will be aglow with jewelry, not on display in museum-like-fashion, but for you to try on and buy from the most prominent & trustworthy jewelers, antique dealers and noble blacksmiths of the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Among those in residence on Winterexpositie days will be the charming David Aardewerk of Rocks and Clocks whose inventory is simply to die for!

On an Antiques Diva Tour in The Hague recently, David shared a glimpse into his collection and I was utterly smitten – his collection runs the gamut of items for the Mr. or the Mrs. from vintage & antique watches, to purse clocks, to beautiful baubles from the Art Deco period and beyond! I’ve got my eye on a pair of Van Cleef and Arples cufflinks for my husband as a Christmas cadeaux and would be delighted if I could convince the hubster that I desperately need that platinum, gold, diamond & emerald 1920’s Dutch Art Deco ring Rocks & Clocks has in inventory! If you’re looking for a special present for someone else (or better yet, yourself) you must visit Winterexpositie Het Juweel 2009 this November and if you can’t make these dates, never fear: Rocks & Clocks is at present updating their website with a sensational collection of “Must-Have Diva-Worthy Accessories” – so stay tuned for details on their website launch:

Where: Slot Zeist
Entrance Price: € 12.50 per person

Parking is free in the vicinity of the Slot Zeist. Don’t worry if you have to park “too far” away from the castle, simply wave down one of the free shuttle-service transporting passengers to the castle!

Until Next Time, Layer on those Jewels!
