The Power of Great Styling

I love this image from a recent issue of Town & Country. I'm forever looking at how objects are displayed and styled, either for the purposes of a photograph, or in real life. Granted, each of these lovey gems costs a pretty penny and I can appreciate them (from afar) no matter what. They would have looked nice on a standard white editorial page, but the simplicity and elegance of the color of the gems juxtaposed with the color in the silk cord and all on that lavender/plum background are a huge hit with me. I think this photograph has great depth and interest and really shows off the incredible beauty of these gems.
