GingerJewelry...

...or what appears to be a reasonable facsimile thereof...
Our good buds over at Turner Classic Movies are at it again, this time offering jewelry which is inspired by great scenes in classic films... and of course our girl Ginger made the list (although there should be at least a few more 'moments' on here, natch...) with the honkin' diamond that ol' whats-her-name wore in Carefree... guess this was the rock Big Steve jammed on Miss Cooper's fingah signifying their brainwashed and ill-fated nuptials... shown by the screen cap above (it shows up pretty well throughout the 'dance floor' part of 'Change Partners', and, well, I guess in the 'FreddieHypnotic' portion as well (which would be a cool name for a rock group, BTW...)).
...in general, the rock looks pretty cool... ...but just for the record, while I'm not a gemologist by ANY means, something tells me these aren't real diamonds... but you jewelry types out there can peruse the details on the link below and hopefully find it's a sweet deal:
TCM - Ginger Rogers inspired jewelry 

...there are many more offerings from TCM regarding jewelry inspired by actresses... LOTSA Harlow and Bette stuff...  which is fine, but... MORE GINGER!!!

Of course, Hu will most likely not pop on one of these, but if any of y'all out there DO, please feel free to review it here, or at least over in the FaceBook GingerCommunity...

Hope 2016 is 'rock'-ing along QUITE Gingerly for y'all thus far!

Until we meet again...

KIG!
