It's always time for love when wearing a vintage Schiaparelli faux ruby Swiss watch.  The original owner of the watch loves our blog and sweetly created a blog post for this watch so here is our first guest editor post by "Madame X":

"This elegant Schiaparelli gold-tone Swiss watch bracelet is covered with three rows of red rhinestones in the shape of flowers.  There are twenty-one flowers with six stones each linked together by a single stone for a total of one hundred and sixty stones.  Opened at the watch, the bracelet slips on the wrist with ease.   The bracelet’s exquisite floral design is reminiscent of Schiaparelli’s iconic spring motif.  This motif is celebrated in jewelry pieces of the Schiaparelli Collection housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, where the world famous Met Gala Benefit is held annually.  The Gala celebrates the opening of its spring exhibition drawing luminaries from the fashion and entertainment industries." 

Okay my job is done.  What time is love?
