An irreverent but loving investigation into the history and craftsmanship of antique jewelry — tiny objects that often tell us the bigger stories of their age — through pieces cherry-picked from current auctions and dealer websites.
“The kind of niche story telling that I adore ”

“"Dearest" is about antique jewelry - except, imagine the most interesting person you know knocking back 5 espressos and then researching All The Stories about that jewelry, then coming back and telling you things you'd never hear from anyone else. Monica is the thing you want in any newsletter writer: she's hugely enthusiastic and hugely interested, and she chases both in a ton of delightful and surprising directions. You'll learn stuff, but more importantly you'll *feel* stuff. So, go do that.”
