#jewelleryfacts365 88/365 Diamond fact

Occasionally large thefts of diamonds take place. In February 2013 armed robbers carried out a raid at Brussels Airport and escaped with gems estimated to be worth $50m (£32m; 37m euros). The gang broke through a perimeter fence and raided the cargo hold of a Swiss-bound plane. The gang have since been arrested and large amounts of cash and diamonds recovered. (source)

The wrecked van used by the gang was found near the scene

Throwback Thursday

Me, taking pictures of flowers while wearing one of my "Fashion Week" earrings.
I have another pair in my Etsy shop at the moment. See the link below if you are interested.

Handmade sterling silver and copper earrings. The net is hand crocheted with the black plactic coated wire and black AB Swarovski crystals.
